Let’s Rejoice When We Can

Let’s rejoice when we can!
Let’s not worry how long
the good will last or when it will end –
afraid of rejoicing for fear
the good will be gone tomorrow.
Let’s rejoice for the good we have
right now, and let tomorrow
take care of itself.
This moment is good.
-Karen Molenaar Terrell

“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.”
-Matthew 6

Preparing for the Worst?

How much of our time should we spend preparing for the worst? And how much time should we allow ourselves just to enjoy the life we have?
