Why worry? There are really only two things to worry about....
Remember that old Irish adage? Perhaps you don't, but, having grown up in an Italian/Irish Catholic household, I know the verse well.
It's never been attributed to any specific author but reads this way:
Why Worry? In life there are only two things to worry about: whether you are well, or whether you are sick.
Now if you are well, you have nothing to worry about. And if you are sick, you only have two things to worry about: Whether you get better, or whether you die. If you get better, you have nothing to worry about.
And if you die, you only have two things to worry about: Whether you go to heaven, or whether you go to hell. Now if you go to heaven, you have nothing to worry about. And if you go to hell, you’ll be too busy shaking hands with your friends, that you won't have time to worry. So Why Worry?
Hmm. I'm not sure that very last part about not having time to worry in the nether world is true. #DontWantToRiskIt
But, especially on a day like today when I find myself fretting over things that are absolutely irrelevant in my life in the largest sense, I needed this reminder. #LetGoLetGod Besides, the only things I really worry about are my Peeps; a few of whom are pictured above.
Live well, do good and don't let worry consume you; especially when the source is not even worthy of your time. Happy Monday, y'all!
Ps 119:105 R. Alleluia, alleluia. A lamp to my feet is your word, a light to my path. Gospel Mt 5:38-42 Jesus said to his disciples: "You have heard that it was said, (An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.) But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil. When someone strikes you on your right cheek, turn the other one to him as well. If anyone wants to go to law with you over your tunic, hand him your cloak as well. Should anyone press you into service for one mile, go with him for two miles. Give to the one who asks of you, and do not turn your back on one who wants to borrow."
