Where did the joy of discovery go? When did life become a chore and beauty cease to exist? There is no security without faith. There is no joy without loving life itself. There is no peace without prayer. There is no contentment without the journey within.
There is no love without giving of oneself. There is no abundance without trust and right living. First, we must slow down and reexamine our existence and goals. Take time for gratitude for the many blessings we have.
Stop searching for possessions to fill our inner needs. Take time to smell the roses, gardenias, pansies, and the rest of life. To clearly see without hurrying past the beauty around us. Start each day in gratitude and prayer for the gifts already bestowed on all of us. Pray for peace and guidance and to be open for the change that comes with faith.
