It is 2018!!

I am real careful when it comes to making New Year’s resolutions, so I try to only make one that will challenge me (and I am not going to say what it is LOL). I do want to share something that I read the other day that I thought would be a great list of life items that I would like to strive to be in 2018.   It came from “Dear Abby” – just to let you know this is not where I normally seek wisdom.
It was an article from ‘The Holy Vedas – say: “Man has subjected himself to thousands of self-inflicted bondages. Wisdom comes to a man who lives according to the true eternal laws of nature.”
Here is a prayer from St. Francis that is a list of items that can be very helpful for 2018. This is a list of what we should be when we encounter these issues of life.

“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.
  • And 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. 

 This is going to be an exciting year – enjoy and share your Faith.
