The ART Of Life

Somebody said that the art of life is to live in the present moment,and make that moment as perfect as we can by the realization that we are the instruments and expressions of God himself What do you think? Do you agree?

That's a very nice philosophical viewpoint and I wanted to let you know that I agree. One saint put it best when she asked God to use her as a broom so His will could be accomplished through her. I believe we each were thought by God long before we were ever born. He created each of us to show His love through others. Like St. Francis who said he wished to be an instrument of God's peace. You know, he said where there is hatred, let me sow love, where there is despair, hope, where there is darkness, light and where there is sadness, joy, 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. Millions of people quote this prayer of St. Francis and don't even know it was from a Saint. I hope you don't mind my mentioning it, but anyway I think we were made by God to do His work, not to follow our own wants. God bless.
