Thought of the Day October 4, 2017 Four steps to happiness

By 10:25 AM

"Lord, help me to live this day, quietly, easily. To lean upon Your great strength, trustfully, restfully. To wait for the unfolding of Your will, patiently, serenely. To meet others, peacefully, joyously. To face tomorrow, confidently, courageously." (St Francis of Assisi) These four steps embraced and activated can make a difference in our attitude towards life and our ability to be truly happy in the present moment. Basically, St. Francis is proposing that we strive to cultivate and live a virtuous life. Otherwise the opposite of virtue, namely vices, will be in control of our life. Instead of living in the light, we will be in the twilight or in darkness.
