Take Heaven, Take Peace, Take Joy

By December 20, 2012Friday Letters

Dear Friends,

“I salute you!

There is nothing I can give you
which you have not;
But there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.

No heaven can come to us
unless our hearts find rest in it today.

Take Heaven.

No peace lies in the future
which is not hidden in this present instant.

Take Peace.

The gloom of the world is but a shadow;
behind it, yet within our reach is joy.

Take Joy.

And so, at the Christmas time, I greet you,
with the prayer that for you,
now and forever,
the day breaks
and the shadows flee away.”

(Fra Giovanni, 1513)

Best Wishes for the holiday season and for the New Year from all of your “Friends” at United Friends School!

Nancy Donnelly
Head of School
