Good morning!

So today I read a status update by Bear Grylls --Good to remember for year ahead: Corrie ten Boom: ‘Worry does not empty tomorrow of sorrow; but it empties today of strength.’

Wow, those words are so true in my life. Worry really does take so much energy to maintain. The more I worry, the harder it is to do everything else, even to have normal conversations without feeling stressed and snippy.

It’s not easy, maybe even impossible to flip the worry switch off.

One thing that helps me is to thank God for two good things in my life. Just like worry, it’s amazing how contagious it is, once I start.  Just opening my eyes to that one good thing reminds me of more and more things to be thankful for.

beauty for ashes…
