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

Leaving Soon

A nice sunny day again like yesterday and we leave mid day for our cruise. Debbi will be picking us up and driving us to our ship. Nice we live close and don't have to fly anywhere first.

Finished reading Tea Time for the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith. It was the 10th book in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. I enjoy it as I did all the others.
A quote from the book.
"And most of all I am grateful to you for being my friend, Mma; I am grateful to you for that. That is the best thing that anybody can be to anybody else - a friend."

I've also just finished reading The Daily Walk Bible. Each day I read a few chapters and now at the end of the year I've finished reading the whole Bible. I read the Bible through like this every year. I finished up a week early this year.
Here's the last 2 verses of the Bible.
Revelation 22:20&21
"He who has said all these things declares: Yes, I am coming soon!"
Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all Amen!

I'm bringing 2 books with me to read on the cruise.
I have a few things to do yet and Debbi will be here soon so off I go. Will blog when I can.

I hope you have a Happy Monday.
Happyone :-)
Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp, but which,
if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
