Write it on Your Heart . . .

Strength of Day 16 x 20 © Laurie Pace 2013 Sold   "Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety. Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays." Ralph Waldo Emerson, Collected Poems and Translations.  My dad was the King of making lists.  If you have to make a decision, make a list. If you do anything, make a list of the pros and cons.  I realize now those lists were precious because they kept away the fret and anxiety. They allow you to move forward and not be drug down. We can never relive a day of our lives.  Think always before you speak and always speak from your heart and mind at the same time, not to sow seeds of discord.  As we move into 2018, I still am missing my Dad, but his legacy lives on through how I live my life and what things I passed on to my children, and how they live their lives. Sometimes I feel him right here with me. This year I will live with God's unfailing love and the legacy of love my earthly Dad left us.   This all ties in to the painting above, "Strength of Day".  Psalm 143:12 "In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant."
