Why is life so tragic? so like a little strip of pavementover an abyss? I look down: I feel giddy: I wonder how I am ever to walk to the end? -Virginia Wolf
As we look towar the hours ahead, we can be thankful that we only need be concerned with only a single day's worth of hours. No more. What may come tomarrow, a decision that might be necessary next week, a big change in our lives coming next year, all will be handled with ease, when the time is right.
How fortunate we are, those of us whoshare the program for living! Our worries about the future are over, is we want them to be. We need to take only one step at a time. One day at a time. And always in the care of God. Relief froum our lives worry is immediate when we live the actions "Let go and let God."
Life does present us with tragidies, and we learn from them. They need not detour us, however. In fact, they strength us and encourage personal growth. And no experience will ever be more tha we and our higher power can handle.
I will turn to the program and everthing it ffers today. Just today, and no more, is my concern.

Thanks Jen, those are words my partner needs to hear today. She has been stressing lately over what might happen with her job. I will be sure to have her read it today. Thanks again.

Depression is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of being too strong for too long.
