Intent of the Day: Sharing the Warmth


What exactly makes you feel at home? And what does home feel like? As tough as it can be going out your door, there’s something special about having a place or being a person that radiates kindness and warmth. Sharing that warmth means interacting with people who don’t have to be afraid or ashamed and we are committed to creating that environment. Our intent today is to share a little warmth.

To rest and trust; to give your soul in confidence:
I need this. I need someone to pour myself into.”
-Sylvia Plath

-Henri Nouwen
