One day at a time





Lord, for tomorrow and its needs,
I do not pray;
Keep me, my God, from stain of sin
Just for today.

Let me both diligently work,
And duly pray.
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Just for today.

Let me be slow to do my will,
Prompt to obey;
Help me to sacrifice myself
Just for today.

And if today my tide of life
Should ebb away,
Give me thy Sacraments divine,
Sweet Lord today.

So for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray,
But keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,
Just for today.

May my actions be a living epistle that expresses my prayer for peace. All day I will be a living prayer, and tomorrow will take care of itself. I can only control one thing today, me, so help me to do what I intend and stay on coarse. BE HERE NOW!

I'm just trying to be like you Vicki, you should know that by now. Actually I was in the deepest swirl of thoughts and mania I have felt in a long time. I reached into my mind and pulled out the word BE, then I pulled out the word HERE, and then NOW. I didn't even know what I was thinking at the time, but I put it together and found my way back to some image of sanity. We will have to share that one.

I love this prayer too Rosy! I just said it and I feel better already. Thank you for posting that.
It's beautiful and so true!  I keep walking past that Hydrocodone doggie syrup and just want to down it.
But now even just a little to steady my nerves...would send me into a full blown addiction...I KNOW
in my heart it would. And I don't want to be dependent on pills forever, and go through these ct withdrawals ever again because that's what would happen. These last 18 days have been HELL for me, don't ever want to start again.
Poor Doggie. She has a bad cough and the good vet gave her some good stuff for her condition.
I have a very bad back plus a lot of other things that give me pain. But somebody wrote that it felt like the
pills were making it worse. I don't know, it felt like that to me too.
I will pray and pray
Just for today....
