Prayer of Saint Teresa of Avila

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

-- St. Teresa of Avila

I am trying to memorize this as my mantra while the spinal is taking effect on Friday so that I don't have a panic attack, as usual. I'm hoping to at least get a line or two to repeat while staring at the crucifix in the OR. ( I do love that the OR has a crucifix!)

Perhaps, dear readers, if you find yourself with a few minutes between 8:00 and 8:15 on Friday morning, you can say it once or twice for/along with me. Or just pray any kind of prayer. I love being pregnant and I love raising little people. The part that comes between the two is a definite trial for me.

God bless :)


  1. I'll say a prayer for you! I love that there is a crucifix for you... I'll also think a warm thought for you, I really dislike how cold the OR is on top of the stress of everything else.

  2. I will be enroute to Ft. Myers, FLA (suprise 80th Birthday for my Mom). I will be praying for you!!
