Prayer of St Francis

Just thought that I would share Prayer of St Francis with you all:

"Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."

Well, I am leaving everything in the hands of the Lord. There is so little that we can do. Our time here on earth is short. We just have to go on, come what may.
And, NO, I am not going to stop blogging!

I used to love this prayer. And the songs based on this prayer. Now I'm a bit too dry to appreciate it. Heh!

Blog on, baby! I pray for His peace that surpasses all understanding to be with you. Take care now, and it's always nice to hear from you and read what's happening in your life.
