The closing passage is taken from the Book of Joshua and is one of my favorites. A friend shared it with me years back when I was contemplating making changes in my life and now I am passing it on to you…
“Keep what is written in the holy book on your lips and in your heart, at all times. Recite it day and night, so that you will be sure to do all that it says. Only then will act with wisdom and be successful on your journey. I am telling you: Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be dismayed or discouraged for your God is with you wherever you go.” (Josh.1)
