PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI: PRAYER FOR PEACE  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 seek not so much 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. Amen.

THANK YOU GOD.  Thank you God, for all I have to do today. Thank you God, for this sink of dirty dishes, it shows we have plenty to eat. Thank you God, for this pile of dirty, stinky, laundry, it shows we have plenty of clothes to wear. Thank you God, for those unmade beds in there, they were warm and so comfortable last night and I know there are many who have no beds. Thank you God, for this bathroom complete with all the spattered mirror, soggy grimy towels and dirty commode. They are so convenient. Thank you God, for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting, It is full of cold drinks and enough left overs for two or three meals. Thank you God, for this oven that absolutely must cleaned today, it has baked so many things over the years. The whole family is grateful for that grass that needs mowing, the lawn that will need raking, we all enjoy the garden. Thank you God, even for that slamming door, my kids are healthy and able to run and play. Lord the presence of all these chores awaiting me says you have richly blessed my family.  I shall do them all cheerfully and I shall do them gratefully. Amen –Author unknown-
