For thou shalt forget thy misery; Thou shalt remember it as waters that are passed away. — Job 11:16
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many; not upon your past misfortunes, of which all have some.
— Charles Dickens.
’Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home!
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which, sought through the world, is ne’er met with elsewhere.
Home! home! sweet, sweet home!
There’s no place like home!
— John Howard Payne.
Lord God, my soul fills with gratitude for the blessings which I have received and enjoyed. Help me to conform to thy will concerning my duties. May I not try to resist thy providence. I pray that thou wilt bless my daily life, and make my home a place to dispense kindness and cheerfulness. Amen.
