Nine Things

Gentleness... when I want to kick the cat.

Patience... when I have already repeated myself half-a-dozen times.

Goodness... I want this to influence my actions.


Faithfulness... even when I feel like I have been abandoned.

Self-control... chocolate is not always the answer (nor is that skein of yarn).

Kindness... not just in my actions, but also in my heart.


Peace... even when it is one of "those days".

Joy... like a rainbow on the inside... are tears the transformed waterdrops?

Love... which never fails, always hopes, always trusts.
