No need for worry!

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue, if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things."
-Philippians 4:6-8

Worry accomplishes nothing and it will take over our lives if we allow it to. My desire on this day is to set aside any concerns in my life and focus on the good things, of which there are many, and I know that God's peace will be the highlight of my day!

Smile and have a peaceful day!
