Your life is something opaque, not transparent, as long as you look at it in an ordinary human way. But if you hold it up against the light of God''s goodness, it shines and turns transparent, radiant and bright. And then you ask yourself in amazement: Is this really my own life I see before me?

Do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
| A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people you''re at home.
