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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

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

Parable of the house built on the rock

Luke 6:45-49

45.  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart 
bringeth forth that which is good; 
and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart 
bringeth forth that which is evil: 
for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

46.  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, 
and do not the things which I say?

47.  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, 
I will shew you to whom he is like:

48.  He is like a man which built an house, 
and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: 
and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, 
and could not shake it: 
for it was founded upon a rock.

49.  But he that heareth, and doeth not, 
is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; 
against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; 
and the ruin of that house was great.

Little stream behind the baseball park
where I walk around.

A blessed Sunday to all.

Busy long weekend at our bungalow. I'm just getting around again. You have me singing that Sunday School song. Glad we have a rock as our foundation!
