These words come from Apples of Gold, compiled by Jo Petty -
"There is nothing I can give you which you have not,
but there is much that while I cannot give you, you can take:
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present instant.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow;
behind it, yet within reach, is joy.
The Mission Focus from the United Methodist Women Prayer Calendar for today is the United Methodist Neighborhood Centers, Chattanooga, Tennessee.
May your day be filled with peace and joy!
