"All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling must be removed from you, along with all malice. And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ." (The New American Bible, Saint Joseph version, Ephesians 4:31-32)
My Daily Creed
"Let me be a little kinder,
Let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me;
Let me praise a little more,
Let me be, when I am weary,
Just a little bit more cheery;
Let me serve a little better
Those that I am striving for.
Let me be a little braver
When temptation bids me waver;
Let me strive a little harder
To be all that I should be;
Let me be a little meeker
With the sister that is weaker;
Let me think more of my neighbor
And a little less of me."
"Is it raining little flower?
Be glad of rain;
Too much sun would wither thee,
'Twill shine again.
The clouds are very black, 'tis true;
But just behind them shines the blue.
Art thou weary, tender heart?
Be glad of pain:
In sorrow sweetest virtues grow,
As flowers in rain.
God watches, and thou wilt have sun,
What clouds their perfect work have done."
