To Believe

I wanted to share this poem that held me up a few times when I was feeling low.
Some days I still struggle to believe that things will be okay. The self doubt, worry over my husband/childrens' and my own health and the everyday things.I know my God is there is for me but still I struggle. I can't explain it.

To Believe

To believe is to know that every day
is a new
It is to trust that miracles happen,
and dreams really do come
To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,
To know the
wonder of a stardust sky
and the wisdom of the man in the moon.
To believe
is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child's
and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we
learn to love.
To believe is to find the strength
and courage that lies
within us.
When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
believe is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time
to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful surprises
are just
waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
If only
we believe.

how do you balance 'worry' with living a life well ... do you plan for the future or live for today ?
I have a lot of worries right but I know it won't change things.I have to do some things I don't want to do but I am scared ...I can't talk about it like it is a jinx. Still I am getting closer.

Just a thought, not knowing what you are referring to, really. But in general my feelings are if we focus too much on the future, we lose too much of today, and we truly cannot predict the future,anyway. It only takes one small thing to happen to change our future and we would have to regroup anyway.

It is really amazing how resilient we can be at adjusting to the future as it gets here, if we are in the moment when it does.

I hope you can let go of some worry.
