Life always gives us exactly the teacher
we need at every moment. This includes
every mosquito, every misfortune,
every red light, every traffic jam,
every obnoxious supervisor (or employee),
every illness, every loss,
every moment of joy or depression,
every addiction, every piece of garbage,
every breath.

Thought for the Day 2/22/2019

Friday Tale:
Life hangs by a thread.
A simple snap and we're dead.

All of our money, fortune and fame,
That same little thread holds it again.

We think we are secure in the strength of our might,
When we have not the power to even last the night.

Our fate and our destiny is guided for sure
By the One who gave the rules, we make the detour.

If only we realize it is not by our wits,
That we survive, even prosper, it is because He permits.

It's only a thread that holds us up
But a thread is like steel, when we've drank from the cup.

The cup of life made available to all
Hanging by a thread, yet secured from a fall.
~ A Mountain Wings Original

Because you have the Lord your dwelling place -
the Most High, who is my refuge -
no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
 ~ Psalm 17:5

My steps have held fast to your paths;

But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind
and straining forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal for the prize
of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Only by letting go of what stops us

new roots and truly flower.
~ Peg Streep

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord....
He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out
its roots by the stream, and does not fear when
heat comes, for its leaves remain green.....
