My mom was an incredibly generous person. I can remember her giving her time and money to various groups. I remember going door to door with Mom collecting money for the American Heart Association; we spent hours working with the Special Olympics. She had a special place in her heart for a group called Boys Town. I have one of her bookmarks from this group and I would like to share the quote with you.
“Dear Lord, I have been very hard on myself.
I make demands on myself which are too harsh.
I judge myself too severely.
I have put myself down too often.
That is how I grew up. That is how I was taught.
Dear Lord, I am now putting myself in Your presence.
I am one with You God as well as with others.
I am not going to beat up on myself or others anymore.
I am now experiencing being cared for and guided by You God.
Dear Lord, please heal my soul, mind, and body and those of all people.
I rest in Your peace and healing today and forever.
Every time I read this prayer, it is a fresh reminder that
God cares for us and is with us always.
Have a great week and God Bless
