The Phrase That Pays

JW: Cast all of your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

JD – A little kingdom I possess, where thoughts and feelings dwell; And very hard the task I find of governing it well. – Louisa May Alcott

EB* – Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate the love of God and family and to create memories that will last forever. Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift. The amazing thing is that not only are we able to receive this gift, but we are able to share it with others on Christmas and every other day of the year. – Joel Osteen

MS* – Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values. – Thomas S. Monson

The other day was Louisa May Alcott’s birthday and so Google did their “doodle” thing and recognized the day.

After a brief fit of ADD that led me to a page with quotes from her, I found the quote above.

We are all in possession of our own little kingdom.

And most days it does seem really hard to govern.

The best advice that I have heard in the management of our little kingdoms is to submit it.

When we are running our little kingdoms solely with the purpose of serving and loving others it seems to just run better.

If you are struggling in the role of governor, maybe you can try submission.

Make it a great day.

Jake
