This is OUR time.
Restore, Mend, Unite, Love.
Love never fails.

Prayer of St Francis -
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; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
|But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.|

First thing this morning I went to see my friend, Marie Ciane. She is one of the people that most reminds me of the fruits of the spirit. If you are anything like me, there are people in your life that quite literally lift you up with their way of being - their way of treating others and "seeing" the world and interacting with it brings renewed hope. Right now lets look to these friends that daily walk in the Spirit and allow their lives to speak of love and kindness, faithfulness and gentleness. They are the ones we want to emulate.
