Losing weight

From the July 19, 1993 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


This year I'm going on a diet! In prayer and humility I'm going to reject those enticing spoonfuls of impatience, indifference, intolerance, criticism; refuse to partake in bouts of depression, ingratitude, selfishness. Instead my diet includes unlimited amounts of quiet patience, true compassion, bubbling joy, deep understanding, unending forgiveness, unconditional love.
