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 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.


The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi


We read this today out of THE RED LETTERS: Living a Faith That Bleeds by Tom Davis I thought:

THIS is my prayer for 2010!  

it didn't say 
where there are funny moments share them with friends
but  I'd add that!


when I went to get the book off the coffee table-this was what I found 
HUBBY WATCHING THE NEWS
The big dog is my grand-dog Daisy (who wasn't supposed to be on the couch)
The little guy is Reese (yes, he's always that cute)
