This week has been kind of a rough one. I've managed to procrastinate having my wisdom teeth out long enough, that one is now impacted sooooo way to go me ;) That's what you get for being too cheap to do it. I am waiting on the first available appointment for surgery...and not very patiently I might add. If you can spare a quick prayer for me to quit whining and being a wimp, I would greatly appreciate it!
Today is the feast of St. Francis Desales. Among his many writings, I came across this next quote which hits pretty close to home. "Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." I'm kind of a rockstar at losing my peace, and running my mouth, (aka, not doing things quietly.) So this is awkward.
It takes humility to do things quietly, with a calm spirit. To not have the need to tell everyone what you've accomplished, or how busy you are, is so difficult in a world that glorifies those things. But it is said that the last word spoken by St. Francis was, "humility." After all of the accomplishments he obtained for our Lord, his final thought was only of humility. My challenge for today is to do my work well, and for the Lord. Join me?
