I got the cutest little book in the mail today from The Franciscan Missions. Little Francis Love Notes by Julie Hanna and illustrated by Sr. Chiara Amata is a book of short quotes and directions for life based on the life and example of St. Francis.
Here are a couple I especially enjoyed:
When I ask, "What's in it for me?" My bowl will never be full. When I ask, "What can I give to others?" My bowl will never be empty.
Hurtful things wrinkle my heart - forgiveness puts it back into shape.
I can't remake who I am but I can strive to be the best that God has made me.
