Today’s Reflection: Opened a book and it opened to the page that has this prayer. It made my choice of today’s Reflection for me. Thank you, St. Teresa of Avila.

Today’s Reflection: Push My Buttons Prayer –
Lord, it’s likely that sometime today
someone will push my buttons
challenge my good will
misread my intentions
tick me off
try my patience
rattle my cage
judge me in haste
test my kindness
or do all of the above…

Give me the grace I’ll need at such times
to respond with patience
to trust and accept
to listen carefully
to reach out in peace
to be fair and just
to anticipate goodness
in all my words and deeds…

I know this is a lot to ask, Lord,
but I need your help
to do for others
as I’d have them do for me.
Amen. — Rev. Austin Fleming.

Today’s Reflection: Lord, give me increased patience each and every day. Keep me from hurrying through life at the pace of the world when I should be quietly living at the gentle pace of the heart. Now that I am older, let me take a new look at the world and appreciate the slow and gradual changes that are the essence of the garden. – Maureen Gilmer.
