Old Irish Prayer

There is an old Irish saying/prayer that reflects on the life of St. Columba. It invites us to be HOPE for others in the world around us.

"May God guide you...
To be an isle in the sea,
To be a hill on the shore,
To be a star in the night,
To be a staff for the weak."

I invite all of us to try and be one of these things today. Can we be, for someone else -
An Island of Hope?
A Hill of Refuge?
A Star to guide?
A Rod/staff to lean on?

Psalm 23:4 - "your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me."

Living in Grace
