From the Rock

My Father shared this quote with me a short time back:

John D. Rockefeller said that “These are days when many are discouraged. In the 93 years of my life, depressions have come and gone. Prosperity has always returned and will again.”

Although this wasn’t written about today, it certainly seems relevant.

Another quote from Rockefeller is this poem he penned when he was 86:

I was early taught to work as well as play,
My life has been one long, happy holiday;
Full of work and full of play-
I dropped the worry on the way-
And God was good to me everyday.

It is my aim to have a similar reflection when I am 86.

    "depressions have come and gone"….and they always pass. So true! Thank you for the reminder.
