June 24 Daily Quote

When a man is wrapped up in himself,  he makes a pretty small package.
John Ruskin


Time to start thinking of others.  Worrying about your own life exclusively doesn’t bring you peace or solve any of the problems that come your way.

Always looking to find more things to make you happy won’t bring happiness. Reaching out to others with what you have will.  Giving to others who are in need will show you how much you really have.

Wrapping yourself up in your life is suffocating. Go out and find yourself someone who needs you.  Give yourself some air.

Matthew 6:34

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.


Father, how true it is that each day has enough trouble. Each day requires that we work through whatever problems that present themselves. Some days we are successful and some days we just feel like we’ve treaded water into the next day. We thank You, Lord, that each days problems are already known by You. Thank You for the guidance You provide as we work through each thing. Keep us from the depression that comes from too much stress.  Fill us with Your love and bring us hope for tomorrow.


May 9 Quote of the Day

If you see ten troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you.
Calvin Coolidge


Worry about the future will only give you ulcers.

You can’t possibly avoid every single problem that life will throw at you. I am reminded of the ‘Temors’ movie where the survivalist, Bert, bemoans the fact that he had prepared for nuclear war, World War III,anything catastrophic that he could think of but he hadn’t prepared for underground monsters. Those he just had to find a way to defeat with what he had available. And he did with the help of his friends. You, too, should prepare the best you can but don’t worry that you can’t prepare for everything. If life throws something at you that you aren’t ready for, improvise! Don’t worry about all those troubles you can see.  Most of them will be gone before they get to you anyway.


May 26 Quote of the Day

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
Groucho Marx


What a great attitude to have! What happened yesterday, happened. It’s done. Over. Finished. Through. The problems of tomorrow aren’t here yet. They’ll cause enough trouble when they get here tomorrow.  No sense worrying about things that haven’t happened yet. Be happy in today.  It’s what you have.

Philippians 4:6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God

Father, all of our goals seem so important to us. We know what we want and we worry that we aren’t doing enough or doing the right things. Lord, help us keep in mind that You have a plan for us. You will give us the desires of our heart. We need only to wait on You.

Matthew 6:34

Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about it’s own things. Sufficient for the day is it’s own troubles.

Father, there are so many things on our minds each day. In this economy, so many worry that there will be enough food on the table or that they will have shoes for the kids. Bills are due and employment is not always stable. Father, lift our anxiety. Remind us that we have more value to you than the birds of the air and the lilies of the field whom you feed and cloth. Remind us that you daily work for our good which means that you can handle the problems of tomorrow. Help us to remember just to focus on what you have given us for this day.
