Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery!
— Anne Frank
Someone once said happiness is like a butterfly: if we chase it, we’ll never find it. But if we sit quietly, it will come and land on us. Faith and courage are the same. All we have to do is sit quietly and ask for these gifts from God. In time, and with patience, they will be ours, and so will the happiness we can then pass on to others.
Anne Frank wrote the above words facing a concentration camp and certain death. If she could find happiness and faith and courage within herself under those circumstances, then certainly we can too. These gifts are ours, already within us, if we but look for them.
