GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
So, about everyday life in 2017 for the dwellers of the third rock from the sun ... it's complicated.
And busy. And loud. And messy. And stressful. But...does it really have to be? Hmm.
It's funny, really, how we over complicate things. Micro-analyzing, nitpicking, obsessing over minor league details. Sometimes we don't just sweat the small stuff, we downright drench ourselves in a sea of doubt over matters that we either can't control, don't completely comprehend or haven't even happened.
All we really need to do is give, care, try, forgive, be kind ... and try a little more. Oh, and zipping our lips once in awhile probably couldn't hurt much, either.
Stay calm -- and kick worry to the curb, yo.
Is 58:9b-14Thus says the LORD: If you remove from your midst oppression, false accusation and malicious speech; If you bestow your bread on the hungryand satisfy the afflicted; Then light shall rise for you in the darkness,and the gloom shall become for you like midday; Then the LORD will guide you alwaysand give you plenty even on the parched land. He will renew your strength, and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails.
