    SEPTEMBER 15 Reflection for the Day

    No one welcomes pain with open arms, but it does have its uses. Just as physical pain serves as a warning that we may be suffering a bodily illness, so can emotional pain be a useful sign that something is wrong – as well as a warning that we need to make a change. When we can meet pain without panic, we can learn to deal with the cause of the hurt, rather than running away.

    Can I bear some emotional discomfort? Am I less fragile than I once believed?

    Today I Pray
    I pray I may be better able to face hurt or pain, now that I am getting to know reality – good and bad. I sincerely pray that my tendency to be supersensitive will disappear, that people will not feel they must treat me like blown glass, which could shatter at a puff of criticism.

    Today I Will Remember
    Throw away my stamp: “Fragile – Handle with Care.”
