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.

Charity

I Corinthians 13:4 - 7 and 13
4. Charity suffereth long, and is kind, charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

5. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth.

7. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

13. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
