Be Gentle With Your Say…

Image result for desiderata poster free download

This poem by Desiderata came into my spirit just now. I have loved and learned this since I was a very young girl. I like many other have wondered at its unknown origins, but the lessons here are timeless.

When I began this blog, it was with the intention of this being a safe space where all are welcome. I love God and that fact will never change. I love people who love God as well and even those who do not believe in Him.

It is my/our hope that we may be able to show the non-believer Gods love and in so doing help them to accept that He is.

If anyone chooses not to do so that is perfectly ok, it is each man according to his own heart/ mind. Per Desiderata’s words; “be at peace with God, whatever you perceive him to be”!

I like to live and let others live, I do not tell anyone how to live their lives, well with the exception of my children and I choose to ‘guide” them as their parent.

Thank you all, I have felt nothing but love here and I want all who visit to feel welcome.

God’s blessings on us always I pray.
