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

a little bird told me

There are some little sayings that we say often and might not realize that the original idea came from the the Bible.  I've come across some of them as I read the Bible. 

 "a little bird told me"
Ecclesiastes 10:20
Curse not the king, no not in thy thought, and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber:
for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
✝     ✝     ✝     ✝

"laughter is the best medicine"
Proverbs 17:22
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine:
but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
 ✝     ✝     ✝     ✝
 "I am sick at heart"
Proverbs 13:12
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick;
but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
✝     ✝     ✝     ✝
"saved by the skin of my teeth"
Job 19:20
My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
✝     ✝     ✝     ✝
These are just a few.  I'm sure there are many, many more.  Do you know any?

A blessed Sunday to you my friends.
God Loves You.
