Giving Without Cost

Here are six ways we can give ourselves away daily without cost.

St_Francis_2

Beautiful words that are often attributed to Francis of Assisi, however the actual author is unknown. They first appeared in print over one hundred years ago as part of a prayer titled Peace Prayer. Our world is still in dire need of each.

Please contribute today. Thank you.

When Trials Come Our Way

_________________________________

           A Cheerful Heart

To make our lives more meaningful,
it takes a cheerful heart…
and loving life and living it
each day as a brand new start.

It takes a positive attitude
when trials come our way…
and having the strength to carry on
and taking the time to pray.

Life is what we make it,
for the time that we are here…
so start each day with a cheerful heart
and see miracles appear.

All Of You Is Holy

All_Of_You_Is_Holy

Forget about enlightenment.
Sit down and listen to the wind
singing in your veins.
Feel the love, the longing,
and the fear in your bones.
Open your heart to who you are,
right now. Not who you’d like to be,
but the being right here before you,
inside you, around you.
All of you is holy.
You’re already more
than whatever you can know.
Breathe out, look in, let go.”
