  7. I’m finally learning to live with a spirit of love and power, not being afraid of tomorrow. God has it covered and, as Yeshua said, each day has enough of its own troubles.

    Such apt quotes Mitch! Incidentally, I was born on May 13th and somehow Friday the 13th has always been a magically brilliant and lucky day for me. I actually look forward to it while many people around me fear it. I suppose I do have a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. 😊😇❤️

    I, too, love that Plato quote. Better to investigate the Light than fear it.
