Friday Food for Thought!!!

I received this in an e-mail from Tim's Inspiration and thought it was too good not to share.  Of course....I do believe it was written just for me, so if you see any of yourself in it, too....then, it's gonna make me feel lots better about myself!!!

;-)

LORD,

Thou knowest better than I know myself that I am growing older, 
and will some day be old.

Keep Me from getting talkative, and particularly from the fatal habit of
thinking I must say something on every subject on every occasion.

Release Me from craving to try to straighten out everybodys'
affairs.

Make Me thoughtful, but not moody; helpful but not bossy. 
With my vast store of wisdom, it seems a pity not to use it all….
but Thou knowest, LORD, that I want a few friends at the end.

Keep my mind free from the recital of endless details....
give me wings to get to the point.

Seal my lips to my many aches and pains....
they are increasing and my love of rehearsing them is becoming sweeter as the years go by.

I ask for grace enough to listen to the tales of others' pains.
Help me to endure them with patience.

Teach Me the glorious lesson that occasionally it is possible that I may
be mistaken. Keep me reasonably sweet, I do not want to be a Saint…
some of them are so hard to live with, but a sour old woman is one of
the crowning works of the devil.

Help Me to extract all possible fun out of life. 
There are so many fun things around us, and I don't want to miss any of them.

AMEN


Have a great weekend, Everybody!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
