I have to honestly admit that these words, penned by the beyond-brilliant author of "Wuthering Heights," do not always describe my own attitude. I do find them inspirational, and I hope you may, as well:
"No coward's soul is mine;
No trembler in the world's storm-troubled sphere.
I see Heaven's glories SHINE;
And Faith shines equal; arming me from Fear!"
-- Emily Bronte
II Corinthians 4:17-18; Romans 8:17-18; Hebrews 10:32-35.
[Bronte saw more than her share of personal tragedy and hardship in her brief life of 30 years. DISCLAIMER: while "Wuthering Heights" is a true literary masterpiece, I can't recommend reading it; it is frighteningly dark and creepy and ultimately depressing. You may find you have to spend a little time in the works of Edgar Allan Poe afterwards just to experience the sunshine again! 😃]
