This week's quote:

“It is cheerful to God when you rejoice or laugh from the bottom of your heart.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
“A good laugh heals a lot of hurts. — Madeleine L’Engle

“A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly; but a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around.” — Carolyn Birmingham

The St Francis Prayer
Lord, make me a channel of thy peace; 
that where there is hatred, I may bring love; 
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness; 
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony; 
that where there is error, I may bring truth; 
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith; 
that where there is despair, I may bring hope; 
that where there are shadows, I may bring light; 
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy. 

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted; 
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved. 
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds. 
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven. 
It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. 

Center of the Heart Mantra
Miracles follow miracles;
Wonders always increase;
I give thanks for this amazing day
