THOUGHT:

Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.

THOUGHT:

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

Look at everything in life with a positive attitude and a determination to see something good even when good does not seem to be present. If God put it there, it has a purpose. Look harder for the lesson - you'll be better for it.

That you should put away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of truth.
