Hi Jaime, hope you are having a fine day. Just read this and thought it was good, so I wanted to share it with my spark friends.
“A lesson from the lawn.”
Imagine if a blade of grass decided it had had enough. It was done with having its head snipped off every weekend and its seeds – its future – cut off in their prime. Who could blame it?
Yet, what does that ol’ blade of grass do? It doesn’t say: “I give up! I’m getting nowhere!” It just keeps on growing. It continually takes in the energy from the sunlight and converts carbon dioxide from the air into food to make more leaves and more seeds.
A blade of grass is resilient. We too, can learn to be as resilient as the grass. We may be cut down on a regular basis, yet our strength is in standing up, dusting ourselves off, and starting all over again. Even when grass is covered in concrete, it finds a way to grow up through the cracks.
And, so must we.
We need to take a “leaf” out of the grass’ book. Connect with our own resilience and keep on going. And with God's help and grace we will make it!

(Hi Jaime, I am not too much for "prepared" prayers, but I thought this was good and worth sharing. It seems to cover it all so to speak.)
The Knots Prayer
Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind,
Erase the will nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct
and most of all,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the 'am nots'
that I have allowed to hold me back,
Especially the thoughts that I am not good enough

I came across this ealier and thought it worth sharing...
Success comes in CANS!
Failure in CANT'S!
No one has ever succeeded at anything significant by believing that it couldn't be done. The very first step towards success is to believe that trying makes sense:
The task can be accomplished.
The reward can be earned.
The goal can be reached.
It CAN be done.
It is NOT unrealistic to believe that our journey CAN be done. In fact it is a necessary component of success to believe it can be done.
