Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. - Philippians 4:8 (NRSV)

Some days everything seems wrong, and everywhere I go appears dismal. I notice dirt on the floor, smudges on the windowpanes, a new gray hair, and an endless list of stressors. While driving, traffic lights take too long to change, drivers are aggressive, and I have to avoid potholes.


Today's Prayer
Dear God, help us to shift our focus away from what is stressful to see what is lovely in the world you have created. Amen.
