Solstice Prayer

I'm sure you've seen this posted before (possibly by me), but I love it, so here it is again:

I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not;
but there is much, that, while I cannot give, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today.
Take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present
instant.
Take Peace.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our
reach, is joy.
Take Joy.
And so, at this Christmas time, I greet you, with the prayer that for
you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away.
--Fra Giovanni, 1513
