..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

When we are spiritually free, we do not have
to worry about what to say or do in unexpected,
difficult circumstances. When we are not
concerned about what others think of us or what
we will get for what we do, the right words and
actions will emerge from the centre of our beings
because the Spirit of God, who makes us children of
God and sets us free, will speak and act through us.

- Henri J. M. Nouwen

the photo was taken at Rockaway Beach, Oregon.
It is white floating kite on a cloudy day. This is
the light we couldnt see with our naked eyes!

I've been a Nouwen fan since studying at Regent College but couldn't place the quote. Where did you find it? I threw that up on my blog after lifting it from a college, but they didn't reveal the publication details either. I'd like to reference the book and page for people.
