What is Behind the Mask?

Halloween is a time for fun, kids and candy.
It also is a time when we can show up in our more obvious disguises and masks with tricks and treats.
Every one is wearing a disguise and most don’t even notice anything but surface appearances.
Can you see behind the mask?

Is it possible that we all are being deceived by the acts people are playing?
Can you forgive what you see?
Is it possible you do not know who you really are?
Can you forgive the parts you play?
Is it possible that we have tricked ourselves into believing appearances?
Can you forgive your senses for convincing you what is false is true?
Is it possible that when we look beneath the body and the behavior we can find the Truth?
Can you forgive your ignorance, innocence or just plain naiveté?

What I know is beneath the body, emotions, beliefs and behavior is Love.
What I know is beyond what we can see and taste and touch is energy, prana, Spirit, life force.
What I know is that we all come from the same “stuff” and return to the same “stuff”.
What is know is that we all came here to play a similar game, “trick or treat”.

The TRICK is that we are not what we seem to be.
The TREAT is that we are all Good and Pure perfect Love.
Let’s look under the ego’s disguise of personality and emotions and body stuff.
Let’s see with our heart and listen to the Love inside and see what resides beneath the illusion.

How could Goodness create anything less?  
How could Love be anything other than Love?
Yes sometimes we are trying to remember our way back to Love and Goodness.
Yes, often we have gotten lost in the deceptions of the world and its seeming tricks.

But with forgiveness, we can see again what is truly in all that is.
With forgiveness, we can see the child of God within.
With forgiveness, we can heed the call for Love, where Love is needed.
With forgiveness, we can give our blessings and be filled with gratitude.

Thank Goodness for the Good that always is, when we are willing to forgive all the illusion.
Thank Goodness for the Love that is shared, when we are blessed with the opportunity to choose again.
Thank Goodness, for the Peace that comes, when we heal our misperceptions and belief in the illusion.
Thank Goodness, for the Remembrance of Our Oneness and Unity in Gratitude for each One.

I know you and love you, when I can really see YOU, in all your perfection as the One I AM.
Loving you,  
Betty Lue 

The Gift You Are

You are the gift.
In your healing, I am healed.
In your smiling, I find joy.
In your learning, I am filled with wisdom.
In your free expressions, I am empowered.
In your abundance, I too prosper.
In your spontaneity, I am set free.
In your joy, I know heaven.

And so it is that you give your Self to me
And I receive you with love and gratitude.
I am the gift I give to You
And I fully receive the gift I freely give.

As I know You, I know my Self.
As I give to you, I receive all good.
As I support you, I am supported by the Universe.
As I honor and respect you, I experience gratitude in all my being.
As I love you, I am loving all of God's creation.

I know you and believe in you.
I honor, respect and support you in being.
In you and me is all the Universe.
We are gifts to one another.

True Identity

Are You a Saint or sinner?
Are You a Spiritual Being or human doing?
Are You an Immortal Spirit or mortal body?
Are You Sovereign or a victim of the world you see?

Is this a temporary illusion or dream?
Are we really going home?
Is it possible to know God?
Can we live in heaven here?

Do you ask yourself why you are here?
Do you take time to listen within?
Are you connecting with Source, the Infinite, Creator of All That Is?
Do you believe in God, Higher Power, Infinite Intelligence, Unconditional Love?

Some believe this is a dream of our own creation.
Some believe this is hell until we do good works to get to heaven.
Some believe this is all and when we’re done, the game is over.
Some believe we are in school learning to be good.

So what do you believe?
Does it matter to you?
Are you focused on getting pleasure?
Or being rich and famous?
Are you trying to stay young or thin or gorgeous?
Are you here to let it all go and just enjoy the ride?
Are you playing the part of a loyal friend, gentle lover, strong wise one, or weak and needy victim ?
Do you believe you will come back again and again until you get it right?

So many questions for the curious.
Who am I really?
What lies behind this holy mask?
Who was I in past lifetimes?

Or does it really matter?
Love created you as Love for the purpose of Loving.
Our only function is to clear all blocks to Love.
So let us forgive everything that isn’t the Love we want.

You get to decide or choose what works for you.
When you change your mind, just choose again.
You will find your own answers lie in your choice of what to believe.
So believe and live what you desire.
I choose Love.
Loving you, 
Betty Lue

Beneath the Veil

Halloween is coming. All Saint’s Day.
Can you see beneath the veil of illusion?
Do you know what lies beyond?
Have you recognized your brother and your Self?

Do you believe that you are human with an occasional inspirational experience? 
Or do you know you are of Spirit with amazing physical and human experiences?
Could it be that you experience exactly what you believe about yourself and your life?
Is it possible that “as a man thinks, so is he”?

Could it be that you are projecting onto your life, as you perceive it, the ideas and experiences you have?
Can you be the cause of the adventures, healing, learning, achievements and struggles you experience?
When we blame an external source for our problems, and also give credit, we deceive ourselves.
When we claim responsibility for what we believe and see, what we conceive and achieve, we are at choice.

Often we play victim in order to deny responsibility and feel guilt.
However our unconscious guilt sets us up to punish ourselves.
When we are responsible, we can forgive and choose again.
When we use our experiences to heal, awaken, learn and grow, we can forgive and choose again. 

Let us acknowledge all we do not know or understand.
Let us see a better way to live and love, to give and receive.
Let us learn to trust the high way, the inspired way of Love.
Let us free ourselves to be all that we are here to be. 

When we look at saints and sinners, what we see is choice.
When we look at ourselves and our lives, what we see again is choice.
What is your choice to be, to change, to forgive, to undo, to create?
Are we willing to be responsible for the life we choose and the world we experience?

Remember what we focus on and give attention to (including the news), we feed, empower and increase.
What we ignore, deny and forgive, we undo, diminish and eliminate.
We can focus on the blessings, the beauty and Goodness in ourselves and others and experience more Good.
We can choose to trust, choose and bless with Gratitude our relationships, our choices and our lives.

Let us be willing to undo what we no longer choose.
Let us be willing to forgive all mistakes and misperceptions.
Let us be willing to choose what serves the Highest Good for All.
Let us be willing to appreciate all the blessings of Goodness, wholeness and Happiness.

We can experience the Peace and Joy and Love that already is by erasing what is not.
We can remember our own function of forgiveness and affirmation to create a better way for all.
We can choose an awakened life following the inner voice of Holy Spirit to know the Goodness of God.
We can actualize our gifts and live our purpose and enjoy the fulfillment of a Good Life.

May we all show up, pay attention to our heart, tell the Inspired Truth and let go of our judgments.
It is possible to create a life that is fun, safe and easy....
Loving you,  
Betty Lue

How much of this is true for you?
The Rules for being Human

When you were born, you didn't come with an owner's manual; these guidelines make life work better.
1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it's the only thing you are sure to keep for the rest of your life.

2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called "Life on Planet Earth". Every person or incident is the Universal Teacher.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of experimentation. "Failures" are as much a part of the process as "success."

4. A lesson is repeated until learned. It is presented to you in various forms until you learn it -- then you can go on to the next lesson.

5. If you don't learn easy lessons, they get harder. External problems are a precise reflection of your internal state. When you clear inner obstructions, your outside world changes. Pain is how the universe gets your attention.

6. You will know you've learned a lesson when your actions change. Wisdom is practice. A little of something is better than a lot of nothing.

7. "There" is no better than "here". When your "there" becomes a "here" you will simply obtain another "there" that again looks better than "here."

8. Others are only mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another unless it reflects something you love or hate in yourself.

9. Your life is up to you. Life provides the canvas; you do the painting. Take charge of your life -- or someone else will.

10. You always get what you want. Your subconscious rightfully determines what energies, experiences, and people you attract -- therefore, the only foolproof way to know what you want is to see what you have. There are no victims, only students.

11. There is no right or wrong, but there are consequences. Moralizing doesn't help. Judgments only hold the patterns in place. Just do your best.

12. Your answers lie inside you. Children need guidance from others; as we mature, we trust our hearts, where the Laws of Spirit are written. You know more than you have heard or read or been told. All you need to do is to look, listen, and trust.

13. You will forget all this.

14. You can remember any time you wish.

(From the book "If Life is a Game, These are the Rules" by Cherie Carter-Scott)

Who Are You?

Do you know who you are really?
Do you believe what you have been told?
Do you let your parents and teachers and friends write your script?
Do you allow others’ projections to determine how you think, feel and behave?

Is it possible that you have identified yourself with those around you?
Or have you been trying to be what others wanted you to be?
Are you determined to be better than or equal to others you admire?
Or do you judge you can never be what you really desire?

How do you label, evaluate or identify yourself?
What names do you call yourself inside your mind?
Do you believe what you have been told?
Or do you simply go along with what others see?

When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see?
Are you still wearing a mask from your childhood or adolescence?
Is there someway you are trying to maintain a mask that pleases others?
Do you seek to present a certain face to your audience in the world?

Is your worth based on what you do?
Or how much you make?
Or all the Good You do?
How are you respecting and honoring You?

Could it be that you are more than you see?
Can it be that your worth is beyond what this world believes?
Could it be that you worth is established by your Creator ?(Not your parents)
You are far more than you body, your education, your accomplishments.

To see your Self as you really are, you must know your Father and your true Self.
To know your Self as you are here to be, you must realize the Love that created You.
To love your Self, as the One who came to Love everyone, you must honor the Love in You.
To see You and know You is to Love You.

What would it take to forgive every mistake?
What can you do to take time to know You?
Are you willing to be true to the Real You?
Then listen inside where True Love abides.

Hear the song of your soul.
Feel the love that makes you whole.
Answer the call of Spirit within.
Live a life that makes you grin with Joy and Gratitude.

There is a happy attitude that fills your heart.
And gives your vision wings.
This is the power that inspires you to Give.
Share happy reminders to everyone everywhere.

I am loving you, as I see you and know you, as I see and know and Love my True Self,
Betty Lue
“Our Greatest Fear” 
Our greatest fear
is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light,
not our darkness,
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
“Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us,
it is in everyone,
and as we let our own light shine
we unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear
our presence automatically liberates others.

Do It With Love!

Whatever you do, do it with Love.
Whatever you choose, choose it with Gratitude.
Whatever you make, make it with Joy.
Whatever you say, say it with your heart.

When we do what we hate, we lose energy.
When we choose with conflicting feelings, we create ambiguity and uncertain result.
When we make something with resentment, it fails to serve our purpose.
When we speak with fear or hate, we generate guilt, sickness and weaken ourselves.

To be energized, do everything with full appreciation.
To be empowered, live your life with Love.
To be effective, choose clarity and communicate with conviction.
To achieve excellence, create what you value and enjoy.

We experience abundant living when we give wholeheartedly.
We experience freedom of expression when we listen within for inspired words.
We experience vitality and enthusiasm all day when we live life to its fullest right now.
We know boundless love, trust, freedom and energy when we give generously with Love.

Life is choice.
Pay bills with gratitude for the goods and services received.
Serve others with full appreciation and respect for the gifts you have to give.
Work always being grateful for the jobs you have and the values you support financially.
Love everyone with open-mindedness and appreciation for their Essence, for they are part of You.
Prepare and eat foods that nourish your body with gratitude for their Goodness and contribution.
Appreciate all those who serve you, both seen and unseen services and goods provided us to live.
Honor the ones who inspire us with their lives and their creative expressions, past and present.
Give thanks to our elders who provided wisdom, made mistakes to learn from and gave food for thought.
Yes, enjoy each day for the opportunity to play, to heal, to contribute, to create, to love and appreciate.

Life is what we make it!
When we think positive, we live positively.
When we think abundant, we live abundantly.
When we think with trust, we live with trust.

And what we give, we receive in the giving.
What we share naturally, we demonstrate we care naturally.
Where we help and serve, we help and serve ourselves as well.
We are creating the world we see and experience with every thought, word and deed.

And so it is all Good!
Loving us all abundantly and Joyously,
Betty Lue

Everything Is An Inside Job

What appears to be outside is an illusion.
What appears before us is a projection.
What is healed and cleared must come from within.
The focus for healing is always within our own minds.

Light is shining in you now.  
Never forget this and you will dissolve all darkness.
Love is extending through you now.  
Never forget this and your love will dissolve all fear/

Everyone who attacks is afraid.  
Shower them with Love and their fear will dissipate.
What you see in another is also in yourself.
What you give to another is given to yourself.  

Your prayer must be for all who are afraid. 
When we forgive, the blessing is for all.
When we love, the love extends to everyone.
When we seek God’s Goodness, we seek for all humanity.

And so it is, 
We cannot leave anyone outside of the healing.
We cannot separate ourselves from anyone’s pain.
We cannot make love special by sharing only with some.
We cannot give what we do not have ourselves.

And so it is,
That we are blessed.
And so it is,
That we are the blessing.

Remember this, and you will fear no more.
Remember this, and you will seek no more.
Remember this and you will always love. 
Remember and you will know the Light and Love of God within You.

(Song or chant or mantra)
First forgive the world we see.  
That alone will set us free.  
Then we laugh and truly bless. 
This is the key to our happiness.

Said many ways,
 You can heal your mind with forgiveness. (Forgiveness is an eraser filled with Love.)
And when you mind is free of negativity, 
you see a world you are here to bless. 
 This truly fills us with happiness.

Loving you comes from the Real True B’Lue, (my nickname as a child)

Quick and Easy to Forgive

When forgiveness is more than letting go, it seems difficult and takes some work.
When forgiveness is simply erasing with love, it seems fun, safe and easy.
When forgiveness changes your life, your attitude and relationships instantly, it seems miraculous.
When forgiveness is a super effective tool, to clear what we no longer want, it seems very useful.

How about learning to use this spiritual healing instrument to change your life?
How about practicing until you become skillful at flushing the cosmic toilet to be free/
How about learning to “poof” away the stuff that gets in your way?
How about no longer holding guilt, anger, resentment, blame and hard feelings in your mind and body?

What if you learn by doing that holding judgments and fear is keeping you unhappy and unhealthy.
What if you find that unwillingness to let go is keeping you from inner peace and freedom.
What if you discover that any block that interferes with the free flow of Love is keeping us prisoner.
What if by undoing what is not true and no longer here and now, we can see the Light and enjoy Life.

You see, whether you “poof” or flush, erase or forgive, you are setting yourself free to really LIVE!
Our guilt is keeping us sick, afraid, lonely, stuck, and unhappy.
Our forgiveness heals, assures, connects, frees and opens the way to pure joy.
When we are slow to forgive, we forget how to really live abundantly.

So let’s learn to forgive quickly, deliberately, honestly and totally.
Let us practice until we learn this art of no judgment to anyone.
Let us secure the confidence that we can and should forgive everything that worries, upsets and irritates us.
Let’s through diligent practice, forgive all things so that all that remains is what we enjoy and want to be.

The world is our classroom, our learning laboratory.
We are here to become expert in forgiving.
We are here to practice our part in the undoing of what is not good and pure and holy.
We are here to use our forgiveness technology to clean up and clear away the messes humanity made.

Yes, we are the willing ones, the capable ones, the helpful ones, the loving ones.
We can because what we are clearing is not real and true or lasting unless we hold it in our minds.
We can because we want a world that is free and clear of unhappiness and fear.
We can because we see the value in discontinuing what we no longer want to be.

Judgment, unforgiveness, resentment , guilt and fear keep us repeating what we upsets us.
Holding negative thoughts, memories and feelings in our consciousness continues them present.
Being unwilling to let go of the toxic material in our lives only serves to poison us.
Being filled with bitterness and pain, blocks fully knowing abundance, vitality and Love again.

So being the practice of forgiving everyone and everything, for all time, including yourself.
Over time you will see how it sets you free to be naturally innocent and happy as you are meant to be.

Forgiving always, so I can see and know and enjoy the Goodness in All,
Betty Lue

It Takes So Little To Create So Much Good

It takes just a little time to send affirming thoughts.
It takes just a little willingness to share positive words.
It takes just a little energy to do a simple helpful deed.
It takes just a little money to buy a card or some flowers.

Phone call came! (just a few minutes before we needed to leave for church this AM., as I was beginning my Loving Reminders!)  STOP in the Name of Love.  STOP for the sake of Love. STOP and listen.

From 6 yr. old Lila.
Grandma I lost my tooth and the tooth fairy came.  I was in the shower and it just came out and I was so excited I jumped up and down and I wrote the tooth fairy a note.  And She wrote one back . And she must be big because she took my note.  I asked her to leave my tooth and she did.  And And And. 

I laughed and I listened.  
I inquired and I enjoyed.  
I delighted and I loved.
It takes just a little time to Love,…. really Love.
I was loving your grandchildren too.  
And I was loving you.
I was loving me. 
I really was loving all of us endlessly.
It takes so little to make someone happy.
And gives You, the giver, great Joy.
It takes so little to let someone know they are valued.
And it makes you feel valued too.
It takes so little to give just the right gift of Love.
And it makes you feel so abundant in Love.
It takes so little to do the good works you do.
And it fills your Heart with Joy and Gratitude too!
Make sure you give, give, give your fair share. 
The way to abundance and prosperity is through giving, sharing, offering, contributing.  
The more we think and say we have “needs”, the needier we become!
Whenever we leave, leave an impeccable relationship and space behind!
Leave forgiveness, gratitude, cleanliness, beauty and order behind.
That creates forgiveness, gratitude, cleanliness, beauty and order wherever we go!

Whatever we say, express words of affirmation and praise, comfort and Truth.
Let the sound of our voice offer peace and gratitude, forgiveness and love to everyone. 
Forgive and delete all words of fear, judgment, comparison, criticism or condemnation .

Loving you for learning the lessons of love!

The Power of the Mind

To conceive what we want, we must imagine and envision.
To imagine, one must release the past limiting images.
To envision, one must open the mind to what inspires us.
To fully conceptualize, we must give our idea to Spirit, the highest inspiration.

When we have the goal held in mind, we must relinquish all limited, lacking thoughts.
When we fully believe in what we desire, we must have faith that is will become a reality.
We must trust ourselves and Higher Power, the Universe, All That Is, God.
To believe, we must feel and think and live as if the goal already were manifest.

To achieve what we want, we must do what is required and necessary.
To achieve, we must move around or clear all obstacles and be persistent.
To achieve, we must never quit on our vision and be consistent in following through.
To achieve, we must do the work and clear our own mind of all interfering thoughts.

When we take small steps, celebrate each one.
When we reach blocks, forgive and release them.
When we experience resistance, listen for inner direction.
When we are unsure or lack confidence, pray, affirm and meditate on ideal outcome.

Ensure the highest and best outcome by affirming always: “Whatever is for the highest Good.”
Be confident in the imagined goal by affirming: ”This of something better.”
Practice faithfully affirmation and gratitude, knowing and trusting: “All things work together for Good”.
Clean up after yourself, any doubting language, all limiting thoughts, and fear-based action and interaction.

Life is instant manifestation.
Thoughts create results.
Conflicting thoughts generate mixed outcomes.
Forgive all limiting past experiences and choose again only for happy outcomes for all concerned.

Often we spend creative power, thoughts, words and deeds fixing, preventing or avoiding negative outcomes.
When energy is used defensively or for correction, there is little or none left for positive outcomes.
Clear past failing or limiting images by erasing your mind.
Choose to think with the Mind of God, the unlimited, all powerful and all Loving energy of Spirit.

There is a Power and Presence that knows All things are possible.
There is a Source and ReSource that sees only the Highest Good for All.
There is a courage and strength in each one that can achieve what we conceive and believe.
There is a gift of Higher consciousness, awareness of the All Mighty Presence of Love that knows.

Forgive worldly limitation, distraction and correction.
Choose for spiritual freedom, focus and perfection.

You can when you think you can!

How Do You Love?

In Five Love Languages, Love is shared through quality time, acts of service, affection, affirming words and gifts.  You can take a free quiz! Husbands and wives, teens and kids, etc.
How do you prefer to be loved? Take the quiz and find out.  
Read the book and learn how to Love.
What we usually give is what we want to receive.
When we are paying attention, we seek to learn what really matters to others.
When we are feeling loved, we want to love the other in the ways it matters to them.
When we are seeking love, we try to get the other to give love in the way we want.

Many relationships are disturbed and distraught by not feeling really loved by another.
Many relationships are based on trying to get the gifts, approval, time, affection and help we want.
Many families are running on empty with their love quotient and get angry with the lack of love they feel. 
Many people have forgotten that life is for giving Love from the wellspring of Love within us.

What can you do to Love those who seem to need Love?
What are you willing to give to those who seem to lack in loving you?
How can you share your love effectively with those who reject, ignore and deny Love?
How can you show the Love you have for yourself and others, to inspire, grow and encourage Love in All?

Are you willing to fill your tank with Love from Self and Source?
Are you willing to prime the pump by mightily and consciously loving you?
Are you willing to open the flow of Love and forgive the withholding of Love?
Are you willing to be the One who simply gives Love no matter what?

The only mistake we ever make is when we forget to Love.
Love is prana, the creative force, our life Source, our Power, God.
Love is what created us to be the Love we are.
Love is Life itself and the Light within us.

To fully be alive, we are called to love.
To fully awaken, we must Love all without condition.
To fully feel safe, we must forgive and undo all blocks to Love.
To fully know and Trust the Good within us, we must forgive all withholding of Love.

Yes, this is our purpose here…to Love and be happy.
This is our function here….to forgive all lack of Love.
This is our goal here… know the Peace of God through always Being Love.
Now is the time and we are the ones, at home and work, with family, friends and strangers.

Let us remember and return to Oneness, Wholeness and Love.
Loving you,
Betty Lue

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference 
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake. 
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest 
and most powerful being in the world.

Let Go and Let God

More Trusting and less trying.
Surrender to Love and learn to Listen.
Listen to your heart rather than resolve with your head.
Seek first Peace in your mind and then understanding comes into your heart.

Where there is effort, there is judgment and fear.
Where there is pressure, there is the need to be right.
Where there is demand, there is fear of punishment.
Where there is trial and tribulation, there is worldly duty and sacrifice.

When we are at peace, we know the Love within.
When we are kind, we feel forgiving Spirit.
When we are gentle, we surrender to the Will of God’s Grace.
When we are trusting, we live in at-one-ment with our Faith.

What would change in your relationship with your self,  if you knew always you are loved?
How would you relate to others if you let them find their own path to God and their Good?
How would you respond differently, if you knew your single response-ability is to respond with Love?
What would you give to others, if you live the Golden Rule and give only what you want to receive?

The more we love, trust and respect ourselves, the more we love, trust and respect others.
The more we love, trust and respect ourselves, the more others love, trust and respect us.
The more we love, trust and respect ourselves, the more others, love, trust and respect themselves.
The more we love trust and respect ourselves, the more others love, trust and respect others.

Our greatest influence is how we live and love and give.
Our words of influence fall on deaf ears when we are not living what we say.
Our positive thoughts and words inspire us to teach and learn a better way.
Our negative (fearful and critical) thoughts and words discourage, discredit and depress ourselves and others.

When we are confused, conflicted and unclear, we are split in our allegiance and influence.
When we say one things, but do another our influence and power are not credible.
When we serve two masters, two pictures, two goals, we confuse both messenger and recipient.
Power comes from the integrity of our teaching and our learning, our attitude of faith or doubt.

It is time to choose the power of the positive.
It is time to demonstrate optimism rather than pessimism. 
It is time to build rather than tear down.
It is time to create Good in our lives by giving all our thoughts, words and activities only to Good for Good.

Stop thinking, saying, or behaving in ways that demonstrate what you don’t want to continue.
Stop talking to others about what is wrong and affirm and appreciate what is “right”.
Stop believing or thinking the worst and start having faith in the highest and best outcome.
Stop trying to do what you have always done and expecting a better result.

Let Go and Let only the Good be done through you.
The Greatest Teachers taught the Power of Love.
The most powerful role models learned from mistakes rather than condemning them.
The most profound changes happen when we “let go and let God and Good be done through us.”

Loving us all as we Let Go and Trust in the Power and Presence of Love,
Betty Lue
Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me give love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
