Personal Thoughts On this Labor Day Weekend:

On this Labor Day weekend in the United States, it was time yet again to take stock of all one is every so hopeful for.    As the team @ #outsiders worked on some weekend curations (since the work to "Transition" never ends) they were gracious enough to allow me to use this from +Jonathan Huie that they regularly use to underscore all that one has to be hopeful for.  For me, the admonition By Goethe is the wish I have for all as we embark upon a new day and continued on-going development of #outsiders:

There are nine requisites for contented living:
HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure;
WEALTH enough to support your needs;
STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them;
GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them;
PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished;
CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor;
LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others;
FAITH enough to make real the things of God;
HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
