i will try this day.

"i will try this day to live a simple, sincere and serene life, repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity and self-seeking; cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence; exercising economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God."
-bishop vincent.

[as your desire for spiritual perfection grows, you will find yourself thinking more definitely of Heaven. your desire for Heaven will become stronger and stronger. you may even have to control a dislike for the needs and obligations of daily life.

the more one thinks of his eternal destiny, the more he will realize that his earthly life is a journey toward something far grander than this world. he sees each day as a step toward Heaven, and he looks at himself to see whether he is on the right path. slowly he comes to value the events of his daily life according to God's Will and Heaven's eternal happiness.]
