    Life is So Daily! 
    Mary Southerland

    Today's Truth
    This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9, NLT).

    Friend to Friend
    Life is so daily, isn't it? Hard times come … and they usually come with big doses of discouragement, fear, depression or anxiety. We often attribute the presence of those nasty emotions to the difficult circumstances we are currently facing. Anyone would struggle when faced with trials - right?

    Yes! But what if my frame of mind has less to do with stress and more to do with not being able to see what God is doing all around me? What if regular doses of gratitude could actually be the antidote to freaking out in times of stress?

    Four of our grandchildren spent the night with us last week. They are beautiful and bright and very well mannered. In fact, I was almost shocked by how grateful they were for everything Dan and I did for them. And how they expressed their gratitude was just mind blowing.

    Mimi and Papa, thank you for dinner. It was delicious. 

    Thank you for inviting us to spend the night. We love it here!
