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.

The Cross

Sometimes when things seem to be going all wrong for us and our problems too many or too big to bear, we should still take time to count our blessings.

The young man was at the end of his rope. Seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer. "Lord, I can't go on," he said. "I have too heavy a cross to bear."
The Lord replied, "My son, if you can't bear its weight, just place your cross inside this room. Then open that other door, and pick out any cross you wish."
The man was filled with relief. "Thank you, Lord." he sighed and he did as he was told. Upon entering the other door, he saw many crosses, some so large the tops were not visible. Then he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.
"I'd like that one, Lord." he whispered. And the Lord replied, "My son, that is the cross you just brought in."

Psalm 116: 1 & 2
I love the LORD, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.

Have a blessed and happy Sunday. Remember God loves you!
