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

He's Always There

 Happy Sunday

He's Always There

I'm a participant in the adventure of life,
Now, I can make it trouble or I can make it strife.

I can let my face show a scowl or maybe a frown,
When others say things are looking up, I can look down.

But life here is really short, from beginning to end;
The Bible tells me I might expect threescore and ten.

So, I've got to make my life count for something good.

I want to be able to say, I helped all I could.

So, when my time comes to go, and I leave here below,
May friends say that kindness to others did I show.

For I have a Master you can see, most faithful to behold,
And He's building me a home, on a street of pure gold.

So, I'm going to wear a smile, as wide as a country mile.

And I'll share some cheer, before I think of leaving here.

So, if you are feeling low, and life's not being quite fair,
Then left you eyes toward Jesus, for He is always there.

So true! He is always there. I love how your leaves are beginning to turn. I noticed a few pretty yellow dogwood leaves this morning.
