The Path of Peace, Forgiveness and Love


God’s peace walked with me amidst my busy day

His strength was with me as I did pray

He reminded me Christ is my hope and stay

His love is with me all the way

I love You, Father, more than I could ever say


When I get it wrong, You are always there to forgive

Have me my apology to those I’ve hurt give

Then, I feel a growing love for them in my heart live


Thank you, Father, for loving me with all my sin

Cleansing sin’s soot within


Flow healing river within me

Make me who I ought to be

Looking beyond my abusive past I finally feel free

See more of my God-given destiny

Blue sky of joy peaking through the gray I see

I rejoice that You love me!


Help me each day to love others as You love me

Never be offended by their hostility

Look beyond hurtful words to the pain inside You see

Listen with my heart and mind to suffering humanity


Everyone has something to teach me

A lesson

An experience

A new way of looking at things


In my weaknesses am I made strong

Through my challenges I see how You to my life does belong

You use those who can’t walk, hear, see or slow to understand

To teach others how we’re all fearfully and wonderfully made by Your hand

No one is ugly in Your eyes

We’re all beautiful

We’re all unique


Help me and all of us see Your path of peace, forgiveness and love

To soak in Your peace with all the business of life

To feel the healing flow of forgiving others and ourselves

To love one another as Your Son loved




With two open hands


Thank You, Father, for teaching us about Your peace, forgiveness and love.



Kevin and Karen Osborne are Christian pastoral counsellors and psychotherapists. Kevin is studying to become a chaplain and professor of Psychology specializing in Pastoral Theology. We have started You Can Hope Again Counselling. Karen enjoys doing cross-stitch while I like writing and singing songs. Karen makes me laugh when she sings the kitty bed-time song saying, “It’s that time. It’s the bestest kitty time of the day!” Kevin enjoys teasing the kitties and making them do kitty dances with music. Their kitty, Catherine, loves it when kitty daddeh sings All Things Bright and Beautiful. Kevin likes doing impressions. He tells children’s stories and helps others with their problems using his hand puppet, Dr. Teddy, who is a therapy bear. He is a partner with us in our counselling practice.We are available to assist with worship and preaching to give busy pastors and ministers a much-needed break. We offer in-office, and phone counselling to anyone in the world.
