I was going through a bunch of grapes this morning. Some had to be tossed out, but the bunch was good and the grapes sweet.

Sort of like life.

Some of it has to be tossed out ... but the rest is good.

We can spend a lot of time lamenting the lousy grapes that come our way.

But with the smallest adjustment, we can put our mind and heart on all the rest that's good and sweet.

Be assured: you're a capable person. You've come through a lot, and you'll manage the day, and in the end, you'll be able to breath a sigh of relief and pat yourself on the back.

Where will your eyes be today?

Look to Jesus often during the day; you will find a way through whatever lousy grapes come your way, and you will find your life ... and don't forget to pat yourself on the back now and then and remember what a remarkable person you are!
