Your Gift to God

You may have heard that God’s gift to us is life itself and our gift to God is what we do with our life.  This Thanksgiving consider if this well known prayer can assist you in giving back.

The Prayer of Saint Francis Assisi

“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.”

Amen.

We all are born and we will most certainly pass from this existence.  What will you do in between?  Have a great life and please choose to “BE” a positive difference.
