Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
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

Psalms 23

 Psalms 23 is one of my favorites.  
I've been reading The Living Bible translation of the them this week.
This is my favorite translation of this chapter.

Because the Lord is my Shepherd,
I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in the meadow grass 
and leads me beside the quiet streams.
He gives me new strength.
He helps me do what honors him the most.
Even when walking through the dark valley of death,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me,
guarding, guiding all the way.
You provide delicious food for me in 
the presence of my enemies.
You have welcomed me as your guest;
blessings overflow!
Your goodness and unfailing kindness
shall be with me all of my life,
and afterwards I will live with you
forever in your home.

Such comforting thoughts for me and it is why I am Happyone.

Have a blessed Sunday.
Happyone : )

  3. I enjoyed this translation so refreshing to read another one as I usually read the new King James and NIV.
