When asked by an interviewer how he navigates our challenging times,
Dr Esau McCaulley said something I'm making my new mantra
“I have a bias for joy.”
Saint Paul in his first letter to the Thessalonians said something similar:
"Always be joyful. Always keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful"

The English writer G.K. Chesterton summed up the human condition this way:
“We’re all in the same boat, and we’re all seasick.”
The challenge for a Christian is to learn how to smile in the storms of life.
Or as my beautiful wife Linda likes to say:
“Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain.”
No matter how the elections turns out, if we keep our eyes on Christ he will raise us up … to joy.
Take heart, because I have overcome the world - John 16:33

"I am given life to live.
My life is in this present moment.
I am not thinking about tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.
Nor am I thinking about today's sunset.
Without being bored, I am thinking in this moment only about being with God.
I am ever giving thanks to God for the joy of living this moment together with God.
There is no boredom in me."

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” Budda
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself." Jesus
