Facing The Day

26 Jan

Today I’m going to see something on TV
that angers me, probably News, and I’m
going to tell the TV what I think.  Lord,
temper my temper with self-control.

When I see something beautiful today,
may I slow down enough to enjoy it.
Better, may I actually stop, put down
what I’m doing and take in the full
blessing.

When I am tired, remind me to rest;
if I encounter sadness, help me
remember hope.  May I be friend
to the stranger, a helping companion
to the wounded, and a voice for the
voiceless.

Maybe we’d better go through the day
together.  I think I’m going to need help.

May it be so.  Thank you.
