Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations, and say continually:
"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart has trusted in Him and I am helped. He is not only with me but in me and I in him."
--- St. Francis de Sales
Nature's abundance is everywhere, no matter in flowers.....

Fruits .....

Or sea vegetables from our grand oceans!

This morning my friend Marie forwarded me this site:
which has beautiful photos and funny jokes. I thought this joke was appropriate for some Mondays---
The Pharmacist's Monday
Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully she explained,"It's the druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone. I had to call multiple times before he would even answer the phone." Immediately, the husband drove downtown to confront the druggist and demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a word or two, the druggist told him,"Now, just a minute, listen to my side of it. This morning the alarm failed to go off, so I was late getting up. I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car, just to realize that I'd locked the house with both house and car keys inside and had to break a window to get my keys."Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket. Later, when I was about three blocks from the store, I had a flat tire.""When I finally got to the store a bunch of people were waiting for me to open up. I got the store opened and started waiting on these people, all the time the darn phone was ringing off the hook."
He continued, "Then I had to break a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change, and they spilled all over the floor. I had to get down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels and the phone was still ringing. When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer, which made me stagger back against a showcase with a bunch of perfume bottles on it. Half of them hit the floor and broke.""Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up, and I finally got back to answer it. It was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer.
And believe me mister, as God is my witness, all I did was tell her." :o)

I like to wake at early morn
and greet a brand-new day
Just as I like to greet a friend
who happens 'long my way;
Just like a friend who bears me gifts,
a new day comes to me,
With arms well filled with blessings rich;
its sunny smile I see.
I like to have a bright new day
greet me like that at dawn;
I think the sun smiles more and more
as o'er me it speeds on;
There's magic in a brand-new day,
as though 't were heaven-sent,
And it would bless me all day long
until the day is spent.
I feel at dawn a new year come,
a new world open too;
The past is gone with its mistakes,
and good alone's in view;
I think that when a new day dawns
with sun a-shining bright,
God in His heaven smiles on me
through every ray of light.
