"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

concerning the future

“There are nine requisites for contented living:
HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure;
WEALTH enough to support your needs;
STRENGTH enough to battle
with difficulties and forsake them;
GRACE enough to confess
your sins and overcome them;
PATIENCE enough to toil
until some good is accomplished;
CHARITY enough to see some good
in your neighbor;
LOVE enough to move you
to be useful and helpful to others;
FAITH enough to make real
the things of God;
HOPE enough to remove
all anxious fears concerning the future.”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
