Tag Archives: quote for thanksgiving
We are instruments of peace.
Where there is hatred, we have an opportunity to spread love,
Where there is harm, we can cultivate forgiveness;
Where there is doubt, we can advance certainty;
Where there is despair, we can advocate hope;
Where there is darkness, we can uphold light;
And where there is sadness, we can foster joy.
Let us not aspire to be supported as to support
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love wholeheartedly.
It is in giving that we receive,
It is in forgiving that each forgiven,
and it is in dying that life is possible.
Adapted Francis of Assisi
