It’s been 217 (of 365) Days since we started this journey of #PrayersWrappedInQuotes!⁠ ⁠🙏 🕯️ REFLECTION GUIDE below ⬇️⁠

😊 as you read this! Your day is going to be awesome after spending the next 10 mins reflecting!⁠

🕯️: At 40, Franz Kafka (1883-1924), who never married and had no children, walked through the park in Berlin when he met a girl who was crying because she had lost her favourite doll. She and Kafka searched for the doll unsuccessfully.⁠

Kafka told her to meet him there the next day and they would come back to look for her.⁠

The next day, when they had not yet found the doll, Kafka gave the girl a letter “written” by the doll saying “please don’t cry. I took a trip to see the world. I will write to you about my adventures.”⁠

Thus began a story which continued until the end of Kafka’s life.⁠

During their meetings, Kafka read the letters of the doll carefully written with adventures and conversations that the girl found adorable.⁠

Finally, Kafka brought back the doll (he bought one) that had returned to Berlin.⁠

“It doesn’t look like my doll at all,” said the girl.⁠
Kafka handed her another letter in which the doll wrote: “my travels have changed me.” the little girl hugged the new doll and brought her home.⁠

A year later Kafka died.⁠

Many years later, the now-adult girl found a letter inside the doll. In the tiny letter signed by Kafka it was written:⁠
“Everything you love will probably be lost, but in the end, love will return in another way.”⁠

Today, I invite you to reflect on one of three things. Just choose one today, you can do the other two in other days. ⁠

1) The things that you’ve lost as you journeyed through life. ⁠
2) The things that you’ve found again after many years but may have already changed⁠
3) How you have changed yourself over the years. ⁠
