Some days, we simply need a prayer or a thought that brings everything back into focus. Reading this morning on St. Teresa of Avila and I found a prayer that is often called "St. Teresa's bookmark" due to the fact that it was found written on a slip of paper inserted into a prayer book that she was known to use. I think this prayer is appropriate for many of us today. I pray it blesses and focuses you as it has me.

Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing alarm you. While all things are passing; God is unchanging. Be patient and you will gain everything. With God in your heart nothing is lacking. God alone suffices.
