A. Think. Thank God and adore Him...
B. Consider: The gift of the present day is a preparation for eternity. Make a firm resolution to use the day well for this intention.
C. Look Ahead: Foresee opportunities in which to serve God. Anticipate whatever temptations might occur. Prepare yourself by a good resolution to avoid carefully whatever might be against God's glory and your salvation. Then consider how you plan to carry out this resolution.
D. Humble Yourself: Acknowledge your dependence upon God. Hold your heart in your hands and offer it to His love, together with your good intentions. Ask His protection, His strength, that you be successful in His service. (from In the Midst of the World by Sister Joanna Marie Wenzel VHM, Visitation Sisters)
