1. Reflection
Saving Our Souls

Early in her writing career, Alice Walker was asked
by a leading national magazine to write about growing
up in the south. Though Walker was pleased with what
she produced, the magazine suggested major revisions.
Walker refused. In a showdown meeting, Walker was
informed that she didn't understand, the piece would have
to be changed or it would not be published. After considering
the positive impact such an article would have on her budding
career and weighing that against her integrity as a writer,
Walker responded, "It's you who do not understand. All
I have to do in life is save my soul."

Decision-making is one way we save or care for our souls.
Other ways include doing things we delight in, making time
for pondering and rest, and being ever watchful for
surprise blessings that can present themselves to us at
any time.



"Be yourself. There is something that you can do
better than any other. Listen to the inward voice
and bravely obey that."

"God, teach us how to respond to the needs of Thy
children in ways that do not undermine the self,
but inspire and enliven the spirit."

                                   Howard Thurman
