In light of the Lenten season, for the next 40 days I am going to try to focus on positive stories and use this blog to encourage optimism. I will try to avoid negativity as much as I possibly can. Hopefully, I can encourage all of you to focus more on the positive and less on the negative things in this world.
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; and where there is sadness, joy. 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.
