IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

In the outer world we manifest, in the inner world we achieve. ~Sri Chinmoy
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that I don't take every slight as an injury
  • that I can feel sadness for another alcoholic/addict but do not have to involve myself in their insanity
  • that I have my place today and it is very comfy
  • that I have to be willing, every day, to let go of character defects and be grateful if I let one stay in God's lap

Go very slowly, very quietly, from one duty to the next, taking time to rest and pray between. Do not be too busy. Take everything in order. Venture often into the rest of God and you will find peace. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

Great stuff about slights, character defects and involvement in insanity. I seem to have been doing a bit of that this week. I'm glad I'm past that point.

Take everything in order, I like that.

I had great difficulty with being patient with someone who wouldn't take things in order today. I managed not say anything fowl until after I had hung up the phone.

Patience is not always MY virtue.
