I never managed to get to Sunday's Thought yesterday, for all kinds of good reasons. Then this morning, my friend who has brain cancer and yet remains so cheerful and productive and generous with her time and talent, sent me these words from Gandhi. (She also brought me flowers last week-- shouldn't I be bringing them to her? Plus, she grew them and arranged them in the most beautiful bouquet, which was most welcome on these gray rainy days.)
Anyway, here is what she wants us to ponder:
"Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
– I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
– I shall fear only God.
– I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
– I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
– I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.”
Now here is your cute puppy picture for the day:
