[If you have done all you can to help and encourage someone else,] You can be at peace knowing that you have done all that God has asked you to do. It is up to the other person to work out how he or she will respond.

She gave me the gift of life and helped me learn to feel secure in this world.
She taught me with tolerance and a constant heartbeat of love.
She made me look for the opportunities that would come my way.
She pushed me to believe in myself.
She was always there pointing out the wonder of the moment,
the grace of a butterfly,
the dent she put in my car,
the flight of a seagull,
and the error of my ways.
Through the grief of loss and the joy of abundance,
Through times of disagreement and confrontation to times of understanding and peace,
From the tears that fell in pain, to the tears that came from side-splitting laughter,
I wouldn't change a single moment we've had together.
Surround her with Your love and compassion.
Enfold her in Your care and generosity.
Thank you, Mom, for life.
Thank You, God, for my mother. Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
(Carla Flack in Prayers For Every Need, p. 260)

Dear Lord, today is a new day. Help me finish the important tasks first, even if those tasks are unpleasant. Don't let me put off until tomorrow what I should do today. Amen.

I have been retired from the U.S. government for many years. I was a long time paying member of AOL until May 2009. Until October 2008 I had a fairly extensive genealogy website on AOL. They dropped support.
