Day And Reason # 1...

"This is the beginning of a new day.
You have been given this day to use as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good.
What you do today is important
because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever;
in its place is something that you have left behind...
let it be something good."
- Unknown

That "Certain Someone"
Who Gave You "This Day"
And Every Other Day You've Ever Had
And Ever Will Have
Who Loved You So
That He Sacrificed
A Part Of Himself
- His Only Son -
For YOU.

So That You Might
One Glorious Day
Access The Greatest Banquet Of All
With Him
In The Highest,
He Died
On A Cross
Like A Mere Criminal Of That Era
- He Humiliated Himself So
For YOU.

God Is Life.
God Is Love.
And GOD Is All.
All The Reason You'll Ever Need
To Carry On Living.
Because You Are Loved -
Truly Loved

Day And Reason # 13...

When we think we're in trouble
we can always seek solace within!
You don't have to croak to do that, folks!
In fact, it is most fun
to do it alive and kicking
- preferably kicking out of your life
all and any nuisance(s) to be found
soiling it...!
No trouble will be too much for you
with such a luminous attitude!

I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.
- Emily Bronte (1818-1848)

Only odd that it is a woman saying it
for manfolk!

Many thanks for that, Emily!
Then again,
guys with girly names
(such as Lindsay,
just for example)
probably need that!

Day And Reason # 14...

To enjoy the air we breathe
the drift we feel
the stream at our feet
the glory of nature all around
while the appropriate music plays!

Day And Reason # 15...

 Why - so many interesting encounters to make still!
 We have no right to turn our backs on those
 (nor is it well-advised to do so either!)

Day And Reason # 18...

If you're not yet eighteen,
you want to get there - fast!

If you're past that momentous mark,
you wanna feel eighteen again!

If you're twice removed from it,
you're twice as much inclined to!

And if you have an eighteen year-old
reminding you how far removed from it
you really are, nowadays, alas...
Well then you want to stick around
to see that eighteen year-old
grow old and grey too!

And, maybe, thanks in part to you,
make only half as many mistakes as you have!

Day And Reason # 26...

Because there will always be
that the next day will be better
than the last miserable one.

Never lose that
