Written it in a time of homelessness and deep anguish:
Help me to feel peace within myself and all around me.
What I look at, who I talk to, even where I travel to.
May my thoughts be of peace and happiness.
And if trouble comes my way you will rescue me.
And the peace I've found in you will guide me home safely.
What you are in love with,
What seizes your imagination,
will affect everything. It will decide
what gets you out of bed in the mornings,
what you do with your evenings,
how you spend your weekends,
what you read, what you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you.
Fall in love, stay in love,
and it will decide everything.
I am only one, but I am one;
I cannot do everything
But I can do something;
What I can do I ought to do,
and what I ought to do
by God's grace I will do.
Lord, help me to live this day quietly, easily; to lean on your great strength trustfully, restfully;
to await the unfolding of your will patiently, serenely; to meet others peacefully, joyously;
to face tomorrow confidently, courageously. I do not fear to tread the road I cannot see,
because the hand of the one who loves is leading me.
