Barkley - This is Another Day Lord

The photo was taken when Barkley had to have a cancerous growth from the corner of his eyelid removed.  It was caught early and he recovered quickly but he did NOT like the cone.  When I blew out my meniscus in  a fall around the same time, I too understood the patience required in the healing process.

From the Book of Common Prayer.

"This is another day, Lord . .
if I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely.
If I am to still still, help me to sit quietly.
If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently.
And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly."
