I don’t know about you, but I could stand to chew on some positive, encouraging words today. As the whole world swirls farther and faster down the toilet, I won’t settle for despair. I want to read some words that speak hope and joy to me today.
Try these words on today.”

“At the end of my life, when I stand before God, I hope I don’t have a speck of talent left. Then I can tell God I used every bit of mine.” Erma Bombeck.
Keep deception and lies far from me
Give me neither poverty nor riches;
Feed me with the food that is my portion;
That I not be full and deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?”
Or that I not be in want and steal,
And profane the name of my God
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” Arthur Ashe

And, to me, the most positive, uplifting, encouraging words in the world:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Jesus
