Sunday Inspiration: Did I offer peace today?

did i offer peace today

“Did I offer peace today?

Did I bring a smile to someone’s face?

Did I say words of healing?

Did I let go of my anger and resentment?

Did I forgive?

Did I love?

These are the real questions.

-Henri Nouwen

Can you imagine asking these questions at the end of every day — and answering them honestly? What a transformation that would bring to each of our lives.

    Oh Emilie, I love this! I think I’ll read it in the morning, too, as a reminder!
    Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Emilie. I lost the poem “What love got to do”. How can I find it again. Thanks.

      This doesn’t sound familiar. A quick Google search and one of my blog doesn’t turn it up either. Any more info we can go on?
