“I will try this day to live a simple, sincere, and serene life, repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking;

“cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence;

“exercising economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God.

ln particular I will try to be faithful in those habits of prayer, work, study, physical exercise, eating, and sleep which I believe that Holy Spirit has shown me to be right….” *

    1. Yes, today was a good day to remind myself as it was a trying day. My daughter-in-law went to the emergency room. I was terrified for her because of her compromised immune system. After several hours she is home. We are all drained from the experience her most of all.

  1. Thank you Lori. I heartily agree particularly when the things in your life are far from ‘ideal’. Choose to not let the circumstances dominate or take away from the potential in each day.
