In the mood I am finding myself in today, it’s going to be a huge struggle to B4Peace but it’s something that I strive for every day. I practically snapped my husband’s head off when he headed out this morning. I don’t think that is very B4Peace and I felt horrible for it.
A saint that I really admire is St Francis of Assisi. He lived his life following Jesus’ example. He loved every creature on this Earth. I feel an affinity with him because of his great love for all things and people. I must say though that I don’t care for snakes much but they are on this Earth for a reason so I will try my best not to bother them and vice versa.
I do know that the only way I can promote B4Peace is by trying to live my life in a most loving way. I strive to be tolerant and understanding. There is one man that I meet here in Australia who exemplified this trait that St Francis had. This man died in 2005 and was my husband’s father. I don’t know if Athol ever heard of St Francis but he certainly was a very peaceable man who would go out of his way to help you. Adam, I think, has a lot of Athol’s wonderful traits. I feel very blessed to have gotten to know Athol Morris as well as be a part of his family. I can honestly say it’s a true honour and privilege. I suppose I should have waited until 25 April to post this on his birthday but I feel the need strongly to do this today at this moment because I want to B4Peace.
The video I decided to use is the Prayer of St Francis which I sang at Athol’s Funeral service but I am not the lady singing. I did it a Capella. I know Adam’s parents are watching over us as well as my own. Having this thought helps me B4Peace because I want to make them proud they have me for a daughter.
Peace be with you all! Enjoy the song!
