Am I the only one that can't quite figure out what happened to January, it seems like I was just decorating a Christmas tree and fighting off the crowds at Wal-Mart... and all of a sudden it is almost Valentine's Day!!?? Crazy!
So I was reading a blog this morning and she ended it with this prayer...
"Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where 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; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life." (St. Francis of Assisi 1182-1226)
Wow! What a challenge that is.. reminds me of something my pastor said awhile back.. "If you are having a bad day and some one asks "How are you?" just say "God is good!" Focus on Jesus and love others and remember...
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16
Have a blessed day!
