Deal only with the present,
Never step into tomorrow,
For God asks us just to trust Him
And to never borrow sorrow-
For the future is not ours to know
And it may never be,
So let us live and give our best
And give it lavishly-
For to meet tomorrowís troubles
Before they are even ours
Is to anticipate the Savior
And to doubt His all-wise powers-
So let us be content to solve
Our problems one by one,
Asking nothing of tomorrow
Except ďThy Will be done.Ē
~Helen Steiner Rice~

Happiness is something we create in our mind,
Itís not something we search for and so seldom find,
Itís just waking up and beginning the day
by counting our blessings and kneeling to pray,
Itís giving up thoughts that breed discontent
And accepting what comes as a gift heaven-sent,
Itís giving up wishing for things we have not
And making the best of whatever weíve got,
Itís knowing that life is determined for us,
And pursuing our tasks without fret, fume or fuss,
For itís by completing what God gives us to do
That we find real contentment and happiness, too.
