No Resolutions

The holiday season was busy in our household and I did not even think about New Year’s Resolutions. So in place of resolutions this year, I have copied a C. S. Lewis quote and placed it where I will see it often.

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”

I need to be reminded of this when I am overwhelmed by memories of failure and feel regret.

“My flesh and my heart faileth: [but] God [is] the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” ~ Psalm 73:26

Two Golden Days

A small piece of newsprint that I found in a New Testament that belonged to my Dad is titled, “Two Golden Days.”

“. . . There are two golden days about which I never worry: yesterday and tomorrow.  Those days belong to God. Therefore, that leaves me only today. Any man can fight the battles of just one day. ‘Oh, friend, it is only when we add the burden of those two eternities – yesterday and tomorrow – that we break down. Those are God’s days. Leave them with Him. Therefore, I will journey just one day at a time.’ ” 

This torn section from a printed page is now in my Bible. May the words be so for me!

What’s With the Change?

It only took three mornings for my body to catch up with my mind: 
  • Clocks changed þ 
  • Later bedtime þ
  • Psyched for an extra hour of sleep þ 

I told myself that six o’clock is the new five o’clock, but my body responded, “No, no, no! It’s coffee time and you need to get up.”

I’ve always wondered why the "powers that be” mess with time. Maybe it’s because they need something to make them feel powerful.
