Peace is not the absence of trouble; it is the presence of God
You are strong… when you take your grief and teach it to smile.
You are brave… when you overcome your fear and help others to do the same.
You are happy… when you see a flower and are thankful for the blessing.
You love… when your own pain does not blind you to the pain of others.
You are wise… when you know the limits of your wisdom.
You are true… when you admit there are times you fool yourself.
You are alive… when tomorrows hope means more to you than yesterday’s mistake.
You are growing… when you know that you are but not what you are becoming.
You are free… when you are in control of yourself but do not wish to control others.
You are honourable… when you find your honour is to honour others.
You are generous… when you can give as sweetly as you take.
You are humble… when you do not know how humble you are.
You are beautiful… when you don’t need a mirror to tell you.
You are rich… when you never need more than you have.
You are you… when you are at peace with who you are not.
I wish you peace, today, tomorrow and forever
