There are times when I miss looking out my back window and seeing the mountains. Today is one of those days. This picture is a great and easy fix for that. I am grateful.
Michael and I spent this afternoon talking with someone about healthcare coverage. At the end of our conversation, I truly believed she’s a saint. We were just one of her calls today–and she is scheduled every hour for the rest of the day. God bless all you insurance helpers out there. You have a very tough assignment.
The whole exercise was a test of our patience. In light of that, I think it’s a great time to pull a prayer out of my files to share.
Prayer for Patience
My dear Lord, teach me to be patient when all day long my heart is troubled by little troublesome crosses. Teach me, Lord, to be sweet and gentle in all events of my life, in disappointments, in thoughtlessness of others, in the insincerity of those I trusted, in the unfaithfulness of those in whom I relied. Let me forget myself so that I may enjoy the happiness of others. Let me always hide my little pains and heartaches so that I may be the only one to suffer from them. Teach me to profit by the suffering that comes across my path. Let me use it that it may mellow me, not harden nor embitter me; that it may make me patient, not irritable; that it may make me broad in my forgiveness not narrow or proud, or overbearing. May no one be less good for having come within my influences; no one less pure, less true, less kind, less noble, for having been a fellow traveler with me on our journey towards eternal life. As I meet with one cross after another, let me whisper a word of love to You. May my life be lived in supernatural, full of power for good, and strong in its purpose and sanctity. Amen
May God bless us all.
