Abandonment to God to start the week

Father, I abandon myself 
into your hands.
Do with me what you will,
Whatever you do, I will thank you,
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
as in all your creatures,
And I'll ask nothing else, my Lord.

Into your hands I commend my spirit;
I give it to you
with all the love of my heart,
For I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
To surrender myself into your hands
with a trust beyond all measure,
because you are my Father.

Charles de Foucauld

Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
