I Have Only Today

My Life is an instant.
An hour which passes by;
My life is a moment
Which I have no power to stay.
You know, O my God,
That to love you here on earth –
I have only today.

~ Therese of Lisiux
Therese is famous for her “Little Way” of prayer in which she sould seek out the menial task, welcome unjust criticisms, befirend those who annoyed her, and help those who are ungrateful.
(From Richard Foster’s Prayers from the Heart, p. 46)
