Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Can I have another weekend, please?


Beginning week two of school, after a labor intensive weekend (no pun intended!), I re-read this prayer, and also added this one to my daily prayers. Wishing you a beautiful September week.

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your will.

I ask my prayer in Jesus' name. Amen.

-- St. Ignatius of Loyola

    God bless your Week Two!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
