World Peace Day

September 21, 2018

Today is World Peace Day, and I would like to share a few thoughts about peace:

There will be peace in the world when there is peace within us.

There will be peace in the world when there is peace between us and others.

There will be peace in the world when more people love peace than hate war.

May all of you experience the beautiful words of Mother Teresa's poem, "Peace."

"May today there be peace within you.
  May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
  May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
  May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
  May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
  Let this Presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and
  It is there for each and every one of you."

Wishing you all the blessings your mind and heart can hold and, most of all, Peace.

World Prayer Day

Thursday, September 13, is World Prayer Day.  Please add your prayers for a peaceful planet to those of so many others who will be offering prayers tomorrow.

Please pray also for the gentling of winds and calming of storms that are so prevalent in the weather at this time.  So many people are affected in life-threatening ways. 

Thank you for doing all that you can to care for yourselves and others.  The blessings that you send out will return to you in your own hour of need.

Peace, always.
