Perspective


I pray to be led into a new way of thinking about the difficulties I have to face.

A new point of view will put them into perspective and reduce them to manageable size.

I pray especially to resist exaggerating my troubles until they overwhelm me.

What Lies Ahead

Light Art - DC Convention Center by Mr. Dickie

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.

Gifts


Dear Lord, let me use my gifts, and let me help my friends and family discover theirs. 
Your gifts are priceless and eternal. 
May we, Your children, use them to the glory of Your kingdom, today and forever, Amen.

Daily Routines

... daily routines help. When praying, meditating, or writing in your journal, in these moments of reflection and quiet, we remember we have choices.
