If on our daily course our mind
Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures will, of countless price,
God will provide sacrifice.
Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,
As more of heaven in each we see;
Some softening gleam of love and prayer
Shall dawn on every cross and care.
These words, written by John Keble (1792-1866) are as relevant today as they were when he penned them.
How often do we see the positive in all the people we meet and in all the daily challenges we experience in our lives?
We are a world full of gossipers. How often do your pass on rumours without knowing whether what you are saying is true or not?
Think first, and speak second, and then only speak when you are sure of your facts!
And, when in doubt, pray to our Father God for His guidance – He will never let you down.
With many peaceful blessings
