Thought for the Month
Just for Today, Lord
I will live through the next 12 hours
and not try to tackle all of life's problems at once.
I will improve my mind.
I will learn something useful.
I will learn something that requires effort, thought and concentration.
I will be agreeable.
I will look my best, speak in a well-modulated voice, be courteous and considerate.
I will not find fault with friend, relative or colleague.
I will not try to change or improve anyone but myself.
I will have a program.
I might not follow it exactly, but I will have it.
I will save myself from two enemies - hurry and indecision.
I will do a good turn and keep it a secret.
If anyone finds out, it won't count.
I will do two things I don't want to do,
just for the exercise.
I will believe in myself.
I will give my best to the world
and feel confident that the world will give its best to me.
