I was going to start quoting from Pope Francis's book on Hope, but have two other things I want to share today. I have been using a bookmark from Daily Word and really think the three sections are worth quoting for you. The first is from Sue Sikking:
"Prayer is not a duty or a habit, but pouring forth of the heart in gratitude for every breath, every moment of life, every experience."
The next is from Eric Butterworth: "Things may happen around you, and things may happen to you, but the only things that really count are the things that happen in you."
The third is from May Rowland: "After all, it is our attitude toward life that brings us joy in living."
Let us live today in joy and gratitude!
