“I accept the universe!”

“Egad. She’d better.”

There are things in my life I cannot control.

There are things in my life that I can. Such as how I spend my time.

Today, I chose to turn off the television, close Twitter, avoid email. I will light a candle against the darkness, sit down with my notepad and pen, and write.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
