Simple Truth

flowers/springMy desire in life is to make a difference somehow, some way.  That being said, I’m never quite sure how to make that happen.  Today I heard a prayer credited to St. Francis and realized that maybe I’m making the challenge harder than it should be.  I share his words with you hoping that you, too, will realize that making a difference is not as hard as we sometimes imagine.

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;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much see
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.

Carry on, my friends.  Together we can all make a difference.
