Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud.

Think of the times when an unexpected call from an old friend made your day. The times when people smile at you and you feel inexplicably happy. The time when loved ones drop in just to check up on you and make sure you’re alright. It happens at the exact time when you need to be pulled up.
If you have friends and family you’ve been meaning to get in touch with – call. Someone you plan to meet – visit. Something that needs to be done – do it. There’s no better time than *right now*. Because timing is everything.”
