I'm not doing very well at my Lenten practice. I forgot yesterday until very late, so I thought I would do two today. I forgot again. So, maybe I'll do one tomorrow since everything is snowed under here.
I'll try to do better, of course I am reminded of the immortal words of Master Yoda, "Do or do not, there is no try..." It's one of my favorite sayings that I tend to share with anyone who tells me they will "try." Particularly, if I feel it seems to be an empty promise.
My efforts to do better, come with all the best intentions though. I just know my tendency to procrastinate. What I can promise, however, is to keep making an effort.
For today though, I will leave you with this thought from St. Francis of Assissi
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me
sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where
there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to
console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For
it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are
pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
