Live slowly, think slowly, for time is a mystery. Never forget that love requires that you be the greatest person you are capable of being. Be grateful for life as you live it. May a wonderful light always guide you on the unfolding road. Amen.


Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work. I give you my feet to go your way. I give you my eyes to see as you do. I give you my tongue to speak your words.

I give you my mind that you may think in me. I give you my spirit that you may pray in me. I give you my heart that you may love in me, your Father and all people.

I give you my whole self that you may grow in me, so that it is you, Lord Jesus, who live and work and pray in me. Amen.
