I feel as if I have not done
one single thing right today.
This day has been one failure
failures at work
failures at home
failures with friends.
I feel worthless and tired.
Incapable of being
the person I want to be.
And yet, You love me still.
My family, friends and coworkers
love me still.
Thank You for such unconditional love.
Tonight I ask you to help me
for the mistakes of the day,
and to wake me in the morning
with the beautiful realization that,
once again, You have made me new.
- Abigail Wurdeman

In the morning, Tata assures Yasmin that one day she too will achieve the five daily prayers. Tata and Yasmin go shopping for a prayer rug and Tata makes her granddaughter prayer clothes as well. Tata and Yasmin pray at home. They pray at the mosque...

We're living in a time of high unemployment and the worst economy in decades, yet, I was in the malls at holiday time and no one was buying oranges.
