My new prayer

Matt and I have been struggling lately with decisions, exhaustion and stress, I decided I needed a new prayer that I could say as my "stop and think before I speak break"...

Dear Lord, give me the wisdom to choose my battles, the strength to make my points be heard, the grace to listen with love and give in with grace, the love to always put my husband and family first in all things.

What do you think, I am going to try and say this whenever an argument is starting, preferably holding Matt's hand. I hope it helps me to remember that I love him always and that there is nothing we cannot get through.

Oh, other great quote I read. Mercy is the willingness to enter into the chaos of others and help. I think that maybe my new motto :)
