Dear God

Dear God,
So far today,
I’ve done all right.
I haven’t gossiped.
I haven’t lost my temper.
I haven’t been greedy, grumpy,
nasty, selfish or overindulgent.

I’m very thankful for that.

But in a few minutes, God,
I’m going to get out of bed;
and from then on, I’m probably
going to need a lot more help.
Amen

 

Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only life can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.
(Martin Luther King Jr)

    Interesting quote. Light and love. Those are two things that every life must have, in my opinion. If it wasn’t for light–our lives would be darkened…in more ways than one, that is for sure. And if it wasn’t for love–how would we be able to smile? Because it is a feeling of love that happens when we feel love. Hope you are having a fantastic day Marij!
