thinking anxiously about the future, we forget our present such that
we live neither for the present nor the future. We live as if we
will never die, and we die as if we have never lived. Let's take each day
as it comes, and live each day to the fullest. Remember, we are just
passing through in this life.
The story is told of an American tourist who went to the city of Cairo,
Egypt to visit a famous wise man.
The tourist was surprised when he saw this wise man living in a small,
simple room full of books. The only pieces of furniture were a bed, a
table, and a bench.
“Where is your furniture?” asked the tourist.
The wise man suitably asked: And where is yours?”
“Mine?” Responded the tourist surprised. “I’m here only passing through”
“I also am just passing through.” Concluded the wise man. “Life here on
earth is only temporal…yet, some live it as if they were going to stay
here forever, forgetting to be happy. The value of something is not in

happiness, and the eternal fulfillment that only He can give
We need God's love to cleanse us from our mistakes and wrongdoings. We
need His light to drive away all darkness. We need God's peace
to fill and satisfy our hearts. Let's open the door of our hearts
and ask Him to come into our life and give us the gift of eternal life.
is like a sea. As vast as we can imagine, as deep as we can think. Let us
waste time measuring our life. We will not succeed. Instead, explore
life. Reach for new harbors as we pass through different phases of
life. Make friends on each destination. Let us enjoy our journey.

let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in
the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as
well put that passing time to the best possible use. -Earl Nightingale
