Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him. --James 1:12 (Revised Standard)
Almighty God, help me as I start this day to remember how easy it is to drive the peace from it. May I do my best to keep it, and defy any indolence or disposition that may make me spoil it. May I lay me down at night in peace and sleep because of the contentment that has filled the hours. Amen.
