Prayer of Saint Francis

 Lord, make us instruments of your peace,Maher Familywhere there is hatred, let me sow love; Hollywhere there is injury, pardon; Lloydswhere there is doubt, faith; Peacheswhere there is despair, hope; Alfiewhere there is darkness, light;Lloyd's dogs and where there is sadness, joy.Sharon

Oh God, 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 pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.Dogs
