Lord of my heart, give me vision to inspire me, that, working or resting, I may always think of you.
Lord of my heart, give me light to guide me, that, at home or abroad, I may always walk with you.
Lord of my heart, give me wisdom to direct me, that, thinking or acting, I may always discern right from wrong.
Lord of my heart, give me courage to strengthen me, that, amongst friends or enemies, I may always proclaim your justice.
Lord of my heart, give me trust to console me, that, hungry or well-fed, I may always rely on your mercy.
Lord of my heart, save me from empty praise, that I may always boast of you.
Lord of my heart, save me from worldly wealth, that I may always look to the riches of heaven.
Lord of my heart, save me from military prowess, that I may always seek your protection.
Lord of my heart, save me from vain knowledge, that I may always study your word.
Lord of my heart, Save me from unnatural pleasures, that I may always find joy in your wonderful creation.
Lord of my heart, whatever may befall me, rule over my thoughts and feelings, my words and action.
I thought this was a good prayer to start the New Year off with.
Hope you all had a safe and satisfying year end. I’ll be taking some photos of our accomplishments over the past several days. I’m kicking myself for forgetting the before shots. What kind of blogger am I? Possibly a tired one. We are in the process of transforming daughter’s room to guest room #2. Since all our kids have left the nest we figure it’s good to have a place for them to nest for the night when they come to visit. We also moved several large pieces of furniture around to make things more open. Yikes, we moved the piano. We took out some very large speakers (which son #2 has claimed) and replaced them with smaller ones that fit our smaller spaces. We’ll be picking up some new queen sized mattresses later this week and when I have the new bed made I’ll take photos and show you all the changes. We tidied up the yard and the garage, too. We did all this before Monday! So glad Dear has another day at home so he can recover before he’s back to work. Today I’m going to watch the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl game and sneak a trip in to Goodwill to take all the stuff we sorted out..
So what have y’all be doing?
