VIRTUES, FRUITS AND GIFTS

       I am a reader and writer; a ponderer and prayer.  I enjoy thinking about the big questions of life. Lately, I’ve found myself adversely impacted emotionally and psychologically by the horrifying and troubling cancer of hate and violence that seems to be metastasizing. I pray  hard for conversions of heart and mind – of my heart and mind and of others’ too.  I find that when I pray daily for virtues, and for the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit, I receive relief and peace.  Here is my prayer:  “I pray Lord that You help me to be more joyful, peaceful, humble, kind, loving, patient, gentle, generous, forgiving, accepting, understanding, faithful, self-controlled, charitable, prayerful, long-suffering, compassionate, tolerant, persevering, strong, courageous, grateful, trusting, truthful/honest, hopeful, wise, knowledgeable, reverent, awe-struck, prudent and merciful. My prayer and hope is that you may too receive peace of heart and mind. Together we can eradicate the “cancer of hate” and transform our world.  I believe.  Peace, Joy & Love.

About doctoraquarius

As long as I can remember I have written - poems, observations, stories. Then graduate school, marriage, raising a family, and work occupied my life 100% of the time, and my writing for pleasure took a back seat. I'm back. Retirement from my professional life as a school psychologist, grown children, and an empty nest have freed me to follow my passion. My wonderful husband of nearly 40 years encourages me and my God sustains me.
