Carrying prayer

Do not be discouraged at your faults;
bear with yourself in correcting them,
as you would with your neighbor.
Lay aside this ardor of mind,
which exhausts your body,
and leads you to commit errors.
Accustom yourself gradually
to carry prayer into all your daily occupations.
Speak, move, work, in peace,
as if you were in prayer,
as indeed you ought to be.

François Fénelon


After a most chaotic week I'm joining Sandy in the quiet

I try to not be discouraged by my faults... but struggle, to be honest. Must trust HIM to bring me closer and closer to faultlessness. Nothing/No one else can.

I'm the hardest one I bear with. This is a good word from Francois.
