Jocelyn’s Journal


This was forwarded to me by a friend:

Word of the Day for Sunday, November 1, 2009
irenic eye-REN-ik; -REE-nik,

Tending to promote peace; conciliatory.

Irenic comes from Greek eirenikos, from eirene, “peace.”

Taylor was always irenic by temperament and desire, and his sensitivity to others enabled him to bring together and work with people of very diverse views.

Jocelyn’s Prayer

Jocelyn’s Prayer

I pray you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

May there be peace within.

I pray you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

I pray you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.

I pray you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

I pray you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

I pray you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

Let peace settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.

Lord, You are at work in ways I cannot predict or imagine.

When I am tempted to be embittered at my circumstances,

let me remember that You are working all things together

for my good and that the only safe refuge is under Your wings.
