Living one day at a time has been a learning, growing, changing thing for me. In turning my life over to the care of God as I understand him, I must trust him to provide for me without a doubt. I must take time to pray and meditate, in doing so I am given guidance. If I look to the world to fill my need without prayer and meditation, I am sure to head for disaster. There have been times that I have tried to control my life only to make matters worse.
When I step out on faith, things turn out far better than I could have done myself or imagined.
I must be honest in all my dealings. I must admit when I'm wrong or being selfish or self seeking. Making amends quickly. This helps save me from feeling guilt, shame or resentment. I must do my part to keep my side of the street clean. These are the tools I use to live a serene life.
I have heard that the angelic look of a baby is due to the fact that they fresh from heaven, fresh from God. I believe that to be true. God loves his children. He wants us to come to him. He provides all things to those who love him.
