Fran did a beautiful job, and her message really stood out. Sometimes we get so caught up in finding our own way that we forget God may have another way planned for us. I really appreciated her authenticity in sharing her story of grief and loss.
They passed out a magazine to everyone, and I found this poem in it by an unknown author. One of my friends and I decided to claim the poem as a daily prayer.
Through me, let there be kind words, a warm smile and a caring heart.
Through me, let there be a willingness to listen and a readiness to understand.
Through me, let there be dependability, steadfastness, trust and loyalty.
Through me, let there be compassion, forgiveness, mercy and love.
Through me, let there be every quality I find, O Lord, in Thee.
