Do everything with love (1 Corinthians 16:14; NLT).

May I treat all I feel with love,
With understanding, Lord, and care.

May I check all my thoughts with love,
Correcting them, through instant prayer.

May I speak every word with love,
Say sorry, when I get this wrong.

May I do everything with love,
And serve you gladly, all day long.

May I rejoice, and praise your name,
Commune with you, Lord, all the time.

May I accept both good and bad,
Until our spirits intertwine.

May I treat everyone with love,
No matter what they say, or do,

And trust our Father constantly –
Then I will be like you.


The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).

    • I’m so sorry, Alan, and I understand just what this is like. As soon as I’ve posted this message I will pray about yoyr fatigue. Hold fast to God. ✝️ With love from Ruth xxxx

      • Hi Ruth, God bless you for your compassion and prayers! I am not long out of bed where I had to retreat to at 8.30pm last night, I couldn’t fight any longer. I feel quite a bit better today, if a bit achy with being in bed so long. I usually only do 6 hours in bed most nights, that has been my pattern since high school. I hope you are well today sister, God bless you too!

      • Hello, my dear friend, it’s good to hear that you’re feeling a bit better today, and I’m sure that from long practice you know how to stay within your limits. Too long lying down (or sitting, or standing), makes my back ache, so I understand your aches as well. Maybe we can think of each other pottering around gently today! I thank God that today is a bit easier for you so far. With much love, from Ruth 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺
