Welcome 2010! Calling all Angels of Service

Prayer of St. Francis of 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.



This post will be short and sweet, as I was guided to include the beautiful and yet empowering poem by St. Francis of Assisi.

As I watched the movie The Shift with Dr. Wayne Dyer this weekend, I became aware of a profound shift of thought within me as he spoke. Dr. Dyer spoke about service to others and that in service we find our happiness and joys of heaven. I learned that in being of service to others we find our sweetest connection to God. I believe this whole-heartedly because in the work that I do I receive this joy day after day.

My most glorious and touching moments come from simply creating an unconditional deed for someone who happens to be just passing by in my life; whether it be holding the door for someone carrying groceries, allowing someone to jump in front of me while driving on the road, or simply smiling while someone is having a bad day. It can be as little as kindly giving up a seat on the bus for someone else, for they may need it more than you know.

So I invite you to kick off this year graciously, by gifting yourself to be an instrument of peace, an instrument of service. The service you gift to others will ripple around the world. Let’s make this year 2010 a year of purposeful Light and Peace. In your service to others you find your divine light purpose – and that purpose will always find Peace!

Peace on Earth and good will to all Spirit Beings!

Welcome to 2010! I wish you and yours a truly blessed one!
