"When love awakens in your life, in the night of your heart, it is like the dawn breaking within you. Where before there was anonymity, now there is intimacy; where before there was fear, now there is courage; where before in your life there was awkwardness, now there is a rhythm of grace and gracefulness; where before you used to be jagged, now you are elegant and in rhythm with your self. When love awakens in your life, it is like a rebirth, a new beginning."  John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A book of Celtic Wisdom

I have not read John's work above, but by evening I will hopefully have found it. What powerful thoughts and words To me this spoke of intimacy with God.... God is the love awakening in my life... a new intimacy taking fear away and filling me with courage... no more awkwardness... only a graceful journey.  It is a new beginning.  With this day, with this blog, with my life, and only with God. 

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
