"It has been well said that no man ever sank under the burden of the day. It is when tomorrow's burden is added to the burden of today that the weight is more than a man can bear. Never load yourselves, my friends. If you find yourselves so loaded, at least remember this: it is your own doing, not God's. He begs you to leave the future to Him, and mind the present."

George Macdonald
I really needed to hear these words today, my friends. They ministered to my heart and I hope they will to yours, as well.
Much love,
Susan P.

Absolutely. Another one I will add if I may. The past is past. I can't control that, either. I'm glad I don't have to, and that my Savior looks after my future.
Big hugs, dear friend.

What a good thought, I needed to hear this too, thank you!

Soooo, just trying to catch up here....but on the big things....the wedding was absolutely gorgeous! All of the hard work paid off! They look so happy. Happy "late" silver anniversary to you and your honey, and golden to your parents. How wonderful that you both celebrated so many happy years!

P.S. I hope Bonnie is feeling better about things, from her update, it sounds like she's doing better. That's good to hear, a break up is never easy.

((Hugs)) to you both!
