I had a book with me this time and I was reading Elizabeth's Elliot's book Secure in His Everlasting Arms.
There in the book was this prayer for me.
" Almighty God, give to Thy servant a meek and gentle spirit that may be slow to anger and easy to mercy and forgiveness. Give me a wise and constant heart, that I may never be moved to an intemperate anger for any injury that is done or offered. Lord, let me ever be courteous, and easy to be entreated; let me never fall into a peevish or contentious spirit, but follow peace with all men; offering forgiveness, inviting them by courtesies, ready to confess my own errors, apt to make amends, and desirous to be reconciled. Let no sickness or cross accidents, no employment or weariness make me angry or ungentle and discontented or unthankful or uneasy to them that minister to me, but in all things make me into the holy Jesus, Amen.
---Jeremy Taylor, 1613-1667---
I can't even begin to tell you how thankful I was I sat there praying that prayer instead of making a complete ass of myself.
First there was this lovely Valentine from my oldest Grandson in Arizona.
Then a few weeks ago I won a giveaway from lovely Christine, across the pond. When I saw the envelope with the post mark I was just so happy that it came yesterday when I needed it at the perfect time.
I have so many things now on my list of things, I am going to do when I see again. For years now, I have been wanting to make this quilt.
I was reading Sharon at Moosecraft She so encouraged me that I thought it was about time to quit whining and do it. I am not afraid of the hand embroidery, and I have stared at those blocks. Pinwheels aren't my favorite but I think I could do this. I really think my list of things I want to do it going to get longer than I have time to sleep.
Now one more doctor appointment. I dreamed about this one last night though, in my dream I was taking care of bunnies in rabbit hutches. Some how in my mixed up brain taking care of bunnies would make my eyes work.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
