Dear Friends in Christ,

More than seven centuries ago, St. Francis of Assisi composed this beautiful prayer.
It speaks of eternal priorities and how we ought to live our lives.

                        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;
Where there is sadness, joy.

                        O, Divine Master, grant that I may not 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;
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

In this prayer is found the principles for a joy filled life. May we not only say these words but choose to live them as well.

 

Yours in Christ,

 

May God keep you close to Him!

The Power of Smile

He remembered past kindnesses of You never really know, do you…..

She smiled at a sorrowful stranger.  The smile seemed to make him feel better.

a friend and wrote him a thank-you letter.

The friend was so pleased with the thank-you that he left a large tip after lunch.

The waitress, feeling grateful, gave a portion of her tip as an offering to a soup kitchen, which could provide one more meal for a hungry man on the street.

The man on the street was grateful; for two days he’d had nothing to eat.  After he finished his dinner, he left for his small dingy room. He didn’t know at that moment that he might be facing his doom.

On the way he picked up a shivering puppy and took him home to get warm.  The puppy was very grateful to be in out of the storm..

That night the house caught on fire.  The puppy barked the alarm.  He barked till he woke the whole household and saved everybody from harm.

One of the boys that he rescued grew up to be President. 

All this because of a simple smile that hadn’t cost a cent!

You never really know, do you…
