the heart's fruition

Peace is the fruition of our heart's endeavor:

to live in harmony,

to respond from love at all times,

to embrace compassion as a way of being,

to be kind under all circumstances,

to forgive when we judge,

to understand when we fear,

to balance being and doing.

Our prayer this day is for divine grace:

to help us in this endeavor,

to bring this same awareness to anyone not embracing this endeavor,

so that the fruition of peace may reign forevermore.
