Thoughts from Stephen, Words on Peace and God

Good morning,

We are not at peace with others because we are not at peace with ourselves, and we are not at peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God.
--Thomas Merton

Imagine that we are in control of our lives and prepare to be frustrated, fearful and generally not a joy to be with. Turn your efforts toward the wisdom of your heart and begin to enjoy the life of peace few are willing to live.

The moment we want to believe something, we suddenly see all the arguments for it, and become blind to the arguments against it. Sometimes love blinds us, other times it lets us see.
--George Bernard Shaw

To grow practically in faith requires the genius of our own truth hidden in life’s experiences. Find your knowing within and attain peace with the God of your understanding.

Look into the mirror of your heart’s faith for an amazing day.

Kindest regards,

My friend Stephen has the gift of inspiration, I get emails almost every morning and with his permission I am honored to share some of his thoughtful words with you. The purpose of his writing is “to share my strength and hope for my friends and their friends.”  it is my hope you will enjoy these,   Teri
