Oh it is one of those weeks. I have been full of joy and moving forward with each day, but today the circumstances are creeping in. I am fighting them off, we are dueling!

“Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs.” Mario Andretti

“He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper but he is more excellent who can suit his temper to any circumstances” David Hume

“Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.”

And lastly . . .

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances , for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:16-18

In the middle of this dueling match, one of the food reps came by to check in. I had told him that I was selling three of my tables/sandwich stations that I just don't use anymore. He has come across two people in the past week interested. One has to wait to see if the government extends their contract; the other is needing one soon. Yay, a possible positive circumstance!

And on a completely unrelated note . . . . well, maybe not (since life sometimes seems to be in the crapper . . . )

As I took a moment to peruse Overstock, looking for upcoming birthday presents, lookie what they have for your iPod:

...or, err your bathroom. Yup, might want to hurry over before these bad boys are all gone!

BUT, remember, ususally anything that falls in the bathroom lands in the toilet (even an iPod).

We don't live "under the circumstances." We live in the power of the Lord Jesus Christ!

I love all your quotes concerning circumstances. It is funny how we often hear/read just what we need just when we need it. I needed those. Thanks.
