have you

looked

in the mirror

lately

face to face

with the truth

marvelous

miracle

of being

daring

longing to be

becoming

be coming

the two betwined

our most authentic

here now

by nadine j. smet- weiss

spiritual director 

we are here now

on the threshold

of a new beginning

who we have been

informing our future

yet not determining 

who we become

if we can

meet each moment

with this wisdom

and awake to 

our deepest desires

we will become

the change

we imagine

blessing this time

nadine j. smet-weiss

spiritual director

there are griefs

in letting go

of what has been

along with 

gratitudes 

for the ways

in which it 

formed our being

may we allow space

for these waves

to flow through us

as a blessing

of aliveness and 

in time 

of our becoming

in time

meeting beauty

by nadine j. smet-weiss

spiritual director

did you rise

to meet beauty

in the mirror

this morning

walk out the door

to delight 

in its blooming

all about you

find it even

in a frowning face

enough to smile

in return

and then delight

to discover

it was 

everywhere present

waiting 

awaken

by nadine j. smet-weiss

now 

is the season

to come alive

awaken

to the power

of the light

you bear

embody 

the gifts

that are

yours

to give

open your arms

to receive

what others

live to share

now is the season

to come alive

awaken to

the love

you are

a faithful prayer

by nadine j. smet-weiss

when I look 

honestly

at the world

which is 

my mirror

the reflection i see

appears to be 

a mangled mess

entangled with

exquisite beauty

raw material for

life imagined

may love guide

my daily contribution
