LIFE IS SHORT
Life is Short, and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us.
So be swift to love, make haste to be kind, and as we go, may the blessings, the love, the joy and the peace of the Holy One who is in the midst of us be among you and remain with you always.
Adopted from the French poet Henri Amiel
