“Therefore, do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own”.
Pretty sound advice huh? And yet, sometimes it is very hard to put into practice.
It was a little chilly today, so I grabbed my shawl and a steaming cup of green tea and headed out the door for my private time in my Secret Garden.
My study today reminded me of a video of a little squirrel in a great forest of trees and the daily danger it faces. The photography is stunning and I have to wonder how it was filmed….obviously, the cameraman/photographer was painstakingly patient and the close-ups of the predator and the prey….are nothing short of amazing!
Below is the link to the video….and I have also included it in my “Featured Video” in the upper right corner of my Home Page. Please take a look. I promise it has a happy ending.
It is not a sad video, though it shows the obstacles the little squirrel endures! It certainly had enough trouble of it’s own on this day and I am sure the little rodent was not thinking of tomorrow, but was definitely living in the “now”!
There have been times when I have been “anxious” about a lot of things.
Isn’t it comforting to be able to look back in your life and see how situations resolved?
I know that in my career…each time I changed positions…it was always better than the position before…sometimes monetarily and sometimes not… sometimes more of an emotional gain, but I could find a positive none-the-less.
I have a couple of good friends who are going through some difficult health issues and of course The Captain and I will keep them and their families in our prayers.
They are living in the “now”, much like the little squirrel in the video.
“Therefore, do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own”. Matthew 6:34
I send all my love, prayers, hugs and best wishes to all of you living in the “now”.
