Irish philosophy of life

The following words make me feel so good each time I read them, I hope you’ll enjoy too:

In life, there are only two things to worry about, 
either you are well, or you are sick.

If you are well, there is nothing to worry about, 
but if you are sick, you have two things to worry about; 
either you will live, or you will die.

If you live, there is nothing to worry about, 
if you die, you have two things to worry about; 
either you will go to heaven or to hell.

If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about, 
but if you go to hell, 
you’ll be so busy shaking hands with your friends, 
you won’t have time to worry!

So, why worry?

In the well with God

A certain care-free young boy who was walking through a field on a sunny day, fell into a well. However, he was not hurt. His mother came running but was unable to extricate him from the well. She stood at the mouth of the well. Fearing that her son might be worried, she did her best to comfort him. Sensing his mother’s anxiety, the little boy said to her, “Mother, do not worry! I was talking to God when I fell and we fell into this well together.”

How comforting, when in the furnace of affliction, to know that He is there with us too!
