Words to live by . . .

My potential new life-statement, which I have always tried to live out: 

Be faithful to my view of God & be a blessing to all other views of life. 

It re-frames the ancient wisdom of the Jewish-Christian ideal (Love God/Love Neighbor) in a way that might help me - and others - view anew this ancient theistic vision for life.

For years I have thought, prayed, and blessed my children and others in the following way: 

"Help me(us) to be a person who is faithful and honest, kind and true, gracious and generous, a person who reflects and embodies the life of God's Kingdom." 

Those are words that cross my mind, and cross my lips, nearly every-single day.

I want to live this way - to be a peacemaker in and for the world.
