To be thankful for the gift of life
because it gives us a chance to
love, to work, and to play;
to be guided by what we admire and love,
rather than by what we hate;
to envy nothing that is our neighbour’s
except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manner;
to think seldom of our enemies, often of our friends,
and everyday of Christ;
and to spend as much time as we can
in God’s out-of-doors.
These are little signposts on the path of peace.
