Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
~~ Luke 2:8-14, New King James Version
I consider nearly all our diseases to be produced from the following causes: – First, from bad air. Second, from impure water, and other poisonous drinks. Third, from diseased, poisonous and unwholesome food. Fourth, from attacks of animalculi and insects. Fifth, from narcotic, acrid and corrosive poisonous drugs.

Hippocrates observes, “He that is ignorant of botany and the physical powers of plants, how can he understand the diseases of man? For out of them is the whole of the human body composed.”

But how can the characters in a play guess the plot? We are not the playwright, we are not the producer, we are not even the audience. We are on the stage. To play well the scenes in which we are “on” concerns us much more than to guess about the scenes that follow it.
~~ C.S. Lewis
All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.

Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.
