"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?  And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?  Any why do you worry about clothing?  Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like on of these.  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown in to the over, will he not much more clothe you--you of little faith?"...."So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.  Today's trouble is enough for today."  --Matthew 6: 25-34

Pebbles on the Shore--"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a prettier shell or a smoother pebble than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."  �Isaac Newton
