10 and 90

In case you missed the quote of the day today (top right part of the page everyday) I thought I would just repeat it:

Quote of the Day
"Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it."
Lou Holtz

It seems to me that we are at our worst as people/Christ followers/spouses/etc when all we can do is look at the deck of cards we've been dealt and cry about it. Eventually it's time for the "woe is me" stuff to stop and action to be taken. I love reading stories about those who start out in terrible circumstances yet somehow persevere and then . . . surprisingly . . . prosper. People in poverty, people who have been abused, people who are disabled. People like Helen Keller. May we all stop focusing on what we don't have and start moving forward to what we could. And please pray for me that I will do the same!

May Light increase!

...and when you get involved in the lives of those around you it soon becomes apparent that no matter how lousy you think your situation is, there is always someone who's been dealt a worse deck than you have! Good reminder Mark!
