Chaplain John Jamison

“Remember: You make your decisions, and then your decisions turn around and make you.”

“Faith is not a way of looking at certain things. It is a certain way of looking at everything.” [emphasis added]

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the person that I cannot change, the courage to change the person I can, and the wisdom to know that I am that person.”

And my favorite: “Dan Rather once interviewed Mother Teresa and in the process asked her what she said when she spoke to God in prayer. Mother Teresa told him that she listened. Rather was surprised by her answer and then asked, ‘Well, then, what does God say?’ Mother Teresa smiled and answered gently, ‘He listens.'”
