    The devil wins by making us regret the past, playing it over and over in our minds, or wasting time anxiously imagining scenarios regarding the future, none of which ever come true.

    He wins by getting us to obsess over the past and worry about our future - anything to keep us from simply living the Grace of the present moment, our current lives.

    Live the present moment.

    God only gives you the Grace for this present moment, not the past or some feared future, but now.

    Leave the past to the Mercy of God, and have confidence in His Divine Providence for your future.

    Live the present moment.

    That’s the only thing you have the Grace for right now.

    God is with us in this present moment. We are having a power outage! BGE said it would last a couple more hours. I have a freshly charged cell phone.
    As far as I can see, no power in town. Wonder what happened? The man next door is president of the fire department and he was in his yard with a flashlight, just as mystified, it seems.

    I looked online at the BGE outage map
    10,000 customers are out
    That’s a lot
    They are estimating a return to service at 10:45pm

    We now have power and I am hoping to hear why this happened, maybe tomorrow. But all's well that ends well, said Ma Ingalls.
