Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.

This is for me today - we had 1.75 inches of rain yesterday:

Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.

Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the testing point.

C.S. Lewis

In his 1942 novel, “The Screwtape Letters,” author C.S. Lewis makes an important observation on the nature of courage. He argues that all spiritual virtues — such as love, hope, faith, patience, and mercy — have little meaning if they disappear in the face of danger or persecution. It is easy to be kind, forgiving, or strong when times are good, but retaining those qualities during times of adversity requires great courage.

Wow, what a way to grieve:

Trust your gut. Forgive yourself. Be grateful.

Cheryl Strayed

In her breakout memoir, “Wild,” author Cheryl Strayed recounts her solo thousand-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. For a backpacking novice and a woman traveling alone, reeling from her mother’s death and a recent divorce, it was a risky journey to undertake. But Strayed’s mental and physical journey gave her an anchor in arguably the hardest time of her young life. Strayed’s commitment to self-compassion in the face of adversity is a testament to how much we can survive by trusting our own internal compass. By forgiving our missteps and recognizing what we do have, we can move forward in new, exciting ways.

At the end of the day, we must go forward with hope and not backward by fear and division.

Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

Warren Buffett

Billionaire investor and business magnate Warren Buffett’s description of shade on a warm, sunny day is a perfect metaphor for the importance of long-term thinking and investing in the future. When we realize our actions can either help or harm our future selves — or later generations — the choices we make become immensely impactful. It may require sacrifice and hard work today, but we will surely be thankful for our efforts in the long run.

It is love alone that gives worth to all things.

Teresa of Ávila

Saint Teresa of Ávila was a 16th-century Catholic nun and mystic. She is known for her inspired spiritual writings and for founding numerous convents across Spain. In her books, letters, and poems, she described the asceticism and contemplation that she practiced alongside her fellow nuns. She believed love was a divine force that imbued earthly life with meaning and value. She wrote, “Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.”

Mix a little foolishness with your prudence; it's good to be silly at the right moment.

Horace

From Roman poet Horace comes a bit of levity not always found in moral adages. In a quote from "Odes," his collection of lyric poems published between 23 and 13 BCE, Horace reminds us that while virtue and discipline are important, it is just as necessary to find lightness, humor, and silliness in life. Moments of laughter and playfulness rescue us from feeling the weight of our obligations and help us stay balanced as we navigate the day-to-day.
