“O Lord, make me an instrument of Thy Peace!
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, harmony;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light, and
Where there is sorrow, joy.

Oh 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.”

 

  If you happen to be feeling overwhelmed at the moment, unappreciated, neglected, ignored, unloved, unsettled, diminished, disappointed, disillusioned, disgruntled, or just plain dissed, the following words from Saint Francis  — spoken over 800 years ago — may be just what the doctor ordered.

By the way, you don’t have to be a saint to get the value. Just a human being…

  10. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.
