————

Enough is as good as a feast.  –English Proverb

————-

Even nectar is poison if taken to excess.  –Hindu Proverb

————-

Only when we know what to say yes to can we say no everything else.

For character and success, two things, contradictory as they may seem, must go together… humble dependence on God and manly reliance on self.  –William Wordsworth

————–

Spontaneity is good.  Routine is good.  Conflicting goodness?  No.  Balance is life. –Terri Guillemets

————–

Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

————-

Life is a balance between what we can control and what we can’t.  You must learn to live comfortably between effort and surrender.

————-

Life is about balance.  Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you.  Trust, but don’t be deceived.  Be content, but never stop improving yourself.

Philippians 4:11b  —   I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

Matthew 6:33-34  —  (Jesus said), “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.  Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8  —  For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing…

Philippians 4:5  —   Let your moderation be known unto all men.  The Lord is at hand. (KJV)

********************************************

Two things I ask of you, Lord;
    do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
    give me neither poverty nor riches,
    but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
    and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
    and so dishonor the name of my God.

–Proverbs 30:7-9
