by St Francis de Sales (1567-1622)
Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life; rather, look to them with full hope as they arise. God, whose very own you are, will deliver you from out of them. He has kept you hitherto, and He will lead you safely through all things; and when you cannot stand it, God will bury you in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father Who cares for you today will take care of you then and everyday. He will either shield you from suffering, will give you unfailing strength to beat it.
Be at peace, and put aside all anxious thought and imagination.
