Give us this day our daily bread. –
One example is worth a thousand arguments.
~ William Gladstone ~
One day at a time! That’s all it can be
No faster than that is the hardest of fate,
And days have their limit, however we
Begin them too early or stretch them late.
~ J.R. Miller ~
He lives happy and master of himself
Who can say, as each day passes on,
I have lived! no matter whether to-morrow
The great Father shall give us a clouded sky or a clear day.
~ Horace ~
Eternal God, guard me against the love of praise, that I may not lose the sense of duty. Start me for the right places and give me strength with my days, that I may press toward their possession. Deliver me from drifting when it is mine to pull against the tide, that I may not be carried out of my course. Shield me from the storms that may gather about me, and bring us all to the desired haven safe in thy keeping. Amen.
