AN OLD SWEDISH PROVERB says “Worry gives small things a big shadow.”

Paul writes; “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6

Matthew quotes words of Jesus; ”Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? ” Matthew 6:27 NLT

When I read quotes by another the first thing I want to know, who said it? Why? And, what have they experienced to make me want to swim in their words?  You see when I get in my worry boat building my shadows I don’t need a party downer I just need one to justify my worries.
