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

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

There's A Wideness

I usually post a Bible verse on Sunday
but today I'm posting the words of a hymn
that you don't very often hear.

There's A Wideness
by Frederick W Faber

There's a wideness in God's mercy,
Like the wideness of the sea;
There's a kindness in His Justice,
Which is more than liberty.

There is welcome for the sinner,
And more graces for the good;
There is mercy with the Savior;
There is healing in His blood.

For the love of God is broader
Than the measure of man's mind;
And the heart of the Eternal
Is most wonderfully kind.

If our love were but more simple,
We should take Him at His word,
And our lives would all be sunshine
In the sweetness of our Lord.

God loves you and wants you to be happy! Have a blessed Sunday and enjoy your day!
