"Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles . . . . it empties today of its strength." Corrie Ten Boom [Spark featured quote; August 22, 2010] I heard Corrie Ten Boom speak in the late 1960's. I had forgotten how inspiring she was.

    Quote of the Day

    "Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."
    – Helen Keller

    Helen Keller was one smart lady and her words still ring true-for those of us sturggling to succeed here on Spark, we need the hope that we can and the confidence that eventually we will succeed.

    Have a wonderful day.

    For yesterday I hold no apologies,
    For tomorrow I hold no answers,
    Today is a gift and I will honor it by fully living in it.

    May God Bless you today, tomorrow and always.

    If God didn't have a purpose for us, we wouldn't be here!

    Live simply.

    Love generously.

    Care deeply.

    Speak kindly.

    Leave the rest to God.
