January 1, 2018

Happy New Year! May 2018 bring only great things for you and your family! I keep a constant reminder of how I should live hanging on the walls of the places where you will routinely find me. It is on the wall of my residence bedroom, my KACC Ardmore apartment, my office in Addison and in my ranch house. I need the daily reminder to help keep me focused and I pray that I live up to the printed words. I borrowed these words years ago from someone to help guide me in my daily life and I want to share them with you. May you all find them helpful and meaningful in your own lives. May we all live up to them all of the days of 2018 with God’s favor!


O God:

Give me strength to live another day;

Let me not turn coward before its difficulties
or prove recreant to its duties;

Let me not lose faith in other people;

Keep me sweet and sound of heart, in spite of
ingratitude, treachery, or meanness;

Preserve me from minding little stings or
giving them;

Help me to keep my heart clean, and to live so
honestly and fearlessly that no outward
failure can dishearten me or take away the
joy of conscious integrity;

Open wide the eyes of my soul that I may see
good in all things;

Grant me this day some new vision of thy truth;

Inspire me with the spirit of joy and gladness;
and make me the cup of strength to suffering
souls; in the name of the strong Deliverer, our
only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ..
