Saturday Review and Planning
Jalál (Glory), 4 Kalimát (Words) 174 Badi - Saturday, July 15, 2017 CE

"O thou handmaid aflame with the fire of God’s love! Grieve thou not over the troubles and hardships of this nether world, nor be thou glad in times of ease and comfort, for both shall pass away. This present life is even as a swelling wave, or a mirage, or drifting shadows. Could ever a distorted image on the desert serve as refreshing waters? No, by the Lord of Lords! Never can reality and the mere semblance of reality be one, and wide is the difference between fancy and fact, between truth and the phantom thereof."
‘Abdu’l-Baha (‘Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Baha’)1

I don't think I have a lot to worry about, and, even if I do, there isn't much I can do about it anyway. I need to place everything in Baha'u'llah's hands. I worry too much about things I can't do anything about, instead of focusing on the t hing I can do something about. Once I place a situation in Baha'u'llah's I need to leave it there instead of attempting to take it back with worry.


Goals I Accomplished

         *BoxCheckB* "In the Age of Magical Thinking, Chap. 1
         *BoxCheckR* "Hawks With Sins "Word Of Illusion

Yesterday, my router lost is connection twice and I had to manually reboot it. So far today, it only lost its connection once. I hope and pray it last until I can afford a new one. A Cox router cost about $60.00, but I don't think I have to have a Cox router to keep my Cox internet connection. If I can find a cheaper router then I will, but only if I can keep the Cox internet connection. I'll have to do a search to see if I can get something cheaper. I'll also have to call Cox to see if I can use another router and still keep my Cox internet connection.

I think I've finished "Poem 27 of 200 Dedicated to The Blessed Beauty", which is The King of Glory. However, I'm not quite sure, so I will wait until Sunday to remove the restriction off the private setting. I've found that it's, almost, always a good idea to let a poem rest overnight before deciding if it is finished. I know that I can't always do this because some of the poem's I write are for one-day contests, but when I can let the poem rest overnight I will.
