PEACE OF MIND - Sunday July 20, 2008

"To be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars; to be satisfied with your possessions, but not contented with yourself until you have made the best of them; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by your admirations rather than by your disgusts; to covet nothing that is your neighbor's except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manners; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends, and every day of Christ; and to spend as much time as you can, with body and with spirit, in God's out-of-doors -- these are little guideposts on the footpath to peace." -- Henry Van Dyke

What a fantastic bunch of 'guideposts' that Van Dyke leaves for us all to ponder.

May your day and the week ahead be full of PEACE for you and yours. -- Davielle
