You Will NOT have Bad Luck if You Don't Read This Post

This morning I opened my inbox to find a chain letter from my sweet sister. Typically, I’m not a chain letter type of gal, but the prayer that was included was too lovely not to notice. The email claims the prayer was written by Saint Theresa. Theresa is known as the Saint of the Little Ways. Apparently she believed in doing the little things in life well and with great love. I like that.

Please be aware, I don’t share this in the hopes that you will send it to 23 of your closest friends email contacts. I don’t suggest that you make a wish before praying or wait for the proverbial pot of gold that will come as a result of reciting and forwarding this prayer.  Do it if you need to, I'm just sayin'.  But, I do hope these words are comforting, encouraging and as special as they were to me. (forgive that grammatically, it’s kind of a mess… Apparently, Theresa needed an editor as badly as I do!)

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be confident knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
His GRACE is there for each and every one of his children.

Those words are inspirational. I've just read a post that when you get emails that say you must pass on to whatever # of people and something good will happen, or something bad will happen, are a way for spammers to get hold of email addresses.
