STOP AND THINK – Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. (Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century American essayist)

Was Emerson right? Well, perhaps, if you’re an optimist. The positive-thinker sees everyday as ripe with opportunity and achievement, while “Gloomy Gus” sees the problems ahead and the obstacles to his achieving anything worthwhile. Remember, there are only a few things we can control, and one is our attitude. Begin today, thinking it will be the very best.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. (Proverbs 16:3)
