March 1, 2014 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

Be Patient with Everyone
 — from writings by St. Francis de Sales

Be patient with everyone, but above all with yourself . . . do not be disappointed by your imperfections, but always rise up with fresh courage.

How are you to be patient in dealing with your neighbor’s faults if you are impatient in dealing with your own?

They who are worried by their own shortcomings will not correct them.

All positive progress comes from a calm and peaceful mind.
