A Quick Update

Stephen Coleman

I’m still around!  2015 has proven to be an unbelievably crazy year so far, and I’ve not had as much time to devote to this blog as I would have liked.  I promise to have an update soon!  I would like to thank everyone for the calls, prayers, cards, and visits during my recent emergency life-saving surgery and the hospital stay and recovery period that followed.  I’m still recovering, and recovery has  proven to be a lot harder than I thought it would!  I didn’t “bounce back” like I thought I would.  But anyway, a new blog entry will be coming soon!  ~Stephen


My Prayer for the Week

My Prayer for the Week…I hope that everyone has a great week!

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace!

That where there is hatred, I may bring love.

That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness.

That where there is discord, I may bring harmony.

That where there is error, I may bring truth.

That where there is doubt, I may bring faith.

That where there is despair, I may bring hope.

That where there are shadows, I may bring light.

That where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted.

To understand, than to be understood.

To love, than to be loved.

For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.

—Saint Francis of Assisi—
