God wants us to know ….

There is an ebb and flow to this life. Trust this peaceful rhythm. If there were constant flow, we would drown in the intensity. Ebb is as necessary as flow.
For this is wisdom – to love and live,
To take what fate or the gods may give,
To ask no question, to make no prayer,
To kiss the lips and caress the hair,
Speed passion’s ebb as we greet its flow,

To everything there is a season

And a time to every purpose under the heaven

A time to be born, and a time to die

A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted

A time to kill, and a time to heal

A time to break down, and a time to build up

A time to weep, and a time to laugh

A time to mourn, and a time to dance

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together

A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to seek, and a time to lose

A time to keep, and a time to cast away

A time to rend, and a time to sew

A time to keep silence, and a time to speak

A time to love, and time to hate

A time for war, and a time for peace

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Grant unto us, Almighty God, in all time of sore distress,

the comfort of the forgiveness of our sins.

In time of darkness give us blessed hope,

in time of sickness of body give us quiet courage;

and when the heart is bowed down, and the soul is very heavy,

and life is a burden, and pleasure a weariness,

and the sun is too bright, and life too mirthful,

then may that Spirit, the Spirit of the Comforter, come upon us,

and after our darkness may there be the clear shining of the heavenly light;

that so, being uplifted again by Thy mercy,

we may pass on through this our mortal life

with quiet courage, patient hope, and unshaken trust,

hoping through Thy loving-kindness and tender mercy

to be delivered from death into the large life of the eternal years.

Hear us of Thy mercy, through Jesus Christ our Lord

 

Amen.

The key to happiness is inner peace

The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions

such as anger, attachment,

fear and suspicion,

while love and compassion and

a sense of universal responsibility

are the sources of peace and happiness.
