Veterans: May Peace Be With You Today

I received this in my email from a dear friend this past week. The timing is perfect for  Veterans Day and for all those who have worried, wondered and prayed.

Veterans Day Parade- Longmont, CO 11-11-11The words are so soothing and calming. I thought you might enjoy reading them as well…

“May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.”

All I can say is AMEN!

And thank you to all our veterans.

    I didn’t know that St Theresa was the author but the words are amazing. They reach out and calm me and allow me to breathe deep. (ps. Let’s not tell the nuns that I failed this test!)

    I attended a lovely parade today — seven high school bands played along with caravans of veterans, organizations and clubs. The street was lined with people waving flags. Just before the parade began, circling overhead was the most beautiful bald eagle!
