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 have and to hold, and, in time let go…

Happy Thoughts

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.

Do not let others get you down.

Be happy for yourself, your health, and for free will.

Be happy that you can find happiness and

peace in yourself without the need of others’ approval.

“If there is love, there is hope to have real families, real brotherhood,

real equanimity, real peace.

If the love within your mind is lost, if you continue to see other beings as enemies,

then no matter how much knowledge or education you have,

no matter how much material progress is made, only suffering and confusion will ensue.”

 

“Human beings will continue to deceive and overpower one another.

Basically, everyone exists in the very nature of suffering,

so to abuse or mistreat each other is futile.

The foundation of all spiritual practice is love.

          That you practice this well is my only request.”

Dalai Lama

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.

A ray of hope flitters in the sky

A tiny star lights up way up high

All across the land dawns a brand new morn

This comes to pass when a child is born

A silent wish sails the seven seas

The winds have changed whisper in the trees

And the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn

This comes to pass when a child is born

A rosy hue settles all around

You’ve got the feel you’re on solid ground

For a spell or two no-one seems forlorn

This comes to pass when a child is born

And all of this happened

Because the world is waiting

Waiting for one child

Black, white, yellow, no one knows

But a child that would grow up and turn tears to

laughter

Hate to love, war to peace

And everyone to everyone’s neighbour

Misery and suffering would be forgotten forever

It’s all a dream and illusion now

It must come true, sometimes soon somehow

All across the land dawns a brand new morn

This comes to pass when a child is born

All across the land dawns a brand new morn

This comes to pass when a child is born

When a child is born

Is there no peace in this world,

No freedom from pain and worry,

Will there always be anxiety,

Over sins we cannot bury?

Our Holy God reminds us,

Work six days every week,

On the seventh day we shall rest,

And listen for Him to speak.

When we follow His commandments

And take time to hear His Word,

We refresh our mind and spirit

Our lives to under gird.

We need to seek Him often,

In a quiet place,

And chat with Him like family,

To find His cherished grace.

He wants to hear our voices,

Say, “I love and trust you, Father God.

Thank Him for His love and mercy,

And smile instead of sob.

He gets enormous pleasure,

From our sincere prayer,

When we treat like a real Father,

He goes with us everywhere.

Peace of mind is His gift,

To carry us through a cloudy day,

Spend all the time you can,

Along the straight and narrow way.

Make the time to meet with Him,

On this busy road of life,

And peace will heal your sorrows,

And free you from gloom and strife.
