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

Sunday


In the Cross of Christ
1825
words by John Bowring
music by Ithamar Conkey

In the cross of Christ I glory,
Towering o’er the wrecks of time;
All the light of sacred story
Gathers round its head sublime.

When the woes of life o’er take me,
Hopes deceive, and fears annoy,
Never shall the cross forsake me,
Lo! it glows with peace and joy.

When the sun of bliss is beaming
Light and love upon my way,
From the cross the radiance streaming
Adds more luster to the day.
 
Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
 By the cross are sanctified;
Peace is there that knows no measure,
Joys that through all time abide.

A Blessed Sunday to you.
Jesus loves you.
