Nada te turbe, nada te espante
todo se pasa,Dios no se muda,
la paciencia todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene, nada le falta.
Solo Dios basta.

Teresa de Ávila
I prayed this prayer many times under this tree. The wind rocking the branches like a mother rocks a baby to sleep. My heart rejoices in those words and my soul finds confort.
I can't pray under this tree anymore, but I have the memory and the prayer with me.

Hi, Helga,

Wow, you've added a lot to your blog! This photo of the tree is my favorite...and the prayer of Teresa. It brings back happy memories of retreat and vacation last year, too.

Praying with you!
