I falter, but eventually trust in God's plan, even when there is no evidence of that plan; it tends to work out and in ways unimaginable when I'm in the fray.

Thank you for this wonderful post and reminder today

Thank you for your kind words... I always do my best to trust in the Lord... I may never understand the why or the what but I know with certainty that we are his and he loves us... God Bless, and have a Happy New Day

Hi Beth and Richard Witt - the quote by Thomas Jefferson is certainly one to heed.

I find myself so frustrated with this truth... I read volumes about the holocaust and if nothing teaches the truth of Jefferson's words that does, but people never seem to learn from the past...I feel like we are like little sheep walking to slaughter... Have a Happy Day Grant

Beth,

I enjoyed the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson,

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. - Thomas Jefferson

For sure we are now witnessing the truth of those words... I just pray that we will not all silently be lead to slaughter... Have a Happy Day

Beth & Richard, great statement for today, and worrying can cause a lot of health issues.

One of my sons is an ER Doc for many years and he would confirm your statement... he tells me he has never seen so many suicides, drug-related deaths, women being physically beaten, children molested, physical pain and suffering and so many stress-related conditions... Fear is killing more than the Virus, very sad... Have a Happy Day
