Today is Friday, January 16th, 2015; Karen's Korner #2985

I always like it when Karen's Korner readers respond to something which I have sent.

Yesterday's was written by Anne Graham Lotz titled "When Bad Things Happen". (If you ever want to look back to any/all Karen's Korners - . The latest 20 are listed on the front page; all others are listed under 'archives'.)

Florine Swanson emailed something she had received yesterday from "Minute Meditations", a quick read:

"We know that we aren't always going to be happy.

Sadness, even tragedy, is going to cross our paths more than once.

But if we strive to be joyful on a daily basis,

we seem to develop reserves upon which we can draw."
