The Human Scene

While beginning my  day, a couple of scenarios come into thought and I am reminded immediately that they are temporal since they are human, not spiritual.  Spiritual qualities like Love, Truth, joy, peace, kindness, compassion are the real and eternal.   Today, I will be happy for the things in my life right now!  Philippians 4:4, 12 state “Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!…I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.  I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”

Today, I refuse to wait until this happens or that happens but grasp this moment with joy and expectancy of Good!

Fantasizing

Frequently, much time is spent in thinking about future events; when one is out of debt, the children are grown, retirement, more leisure time and on and on.  This day-dreaming will never bring fulfillment, but more longing.  Joy is right here and we just need to open our eyes and count our blessings.

Philippians 4:4, 12 reads, “Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!…I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.  I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”

Rejoice now for today and all it’s blessings!
