Plans

On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead.
We consider our plans for the day.
Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.
(Daily Reflections, 12 March)

Be true to your convictions.
You know what is right, and you know what is wrong.
You know when you are doing the proper thing.
You know when you are giving strength to the right causes.
Be loyal.
Be faithful.
Be true.
(Gordon B. Hinckley, Stand A Little Taller, 15 January)

We are at a point right now where we can all go down the tubes or we can heal the planet.

Learning Exercise

I pray that I may learn it is not my function to direct or control another person, however close to me. I will also cease to be a crutch. I can live nobody's life but my own.

Your Creation Fills Me Up

Lord, the beauty of Your creation fills me up. 
You have given me a sacred gift of a day, and 
I receive it with gratitude.

Quietness

I pray for quietness to help me cure my own emotional instability. Let me use serenity to cushion the impact of whatever happens outside of me.
