‘Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the greatest of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.’
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
“We pray for the big things, and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small, and yet really not so small, blessings.’
“Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I will say, rejoice; let your gentleness and consideration to be known all, for the Lord is always near. Do not be anxious about anything, but with prayer, and by supplication, and with thanksgiving, let your needs be made known unto God. And the peace of the Lord, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds, in Christ Jesus.”
