Commentary of the day
Julian of Norwich (1342-after 1416), recluse
Revelations of divine love, ch 85

"Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself"

And in this sight I marvelled highly. For notwithstanding our simple living and our blindness here, yet endlessly our courteous Lord   beholds us in this working, rejoicing; and of all things, we may    please him best by wisely and truly believing, and enjoy with him and in him. For just as truly as we shall be in the bliss of God without end, praising and thanking him, so truly we have been in the foresight of God, loved and known in his endless purpose from the beginning of time.

In which love without beginning he made us; and in the same love he keeps us and never suffers us to be hurt in any way by which our bliss might be lost. And therefore when the Doom is given and we are all brought up above, then shall we clearly see in God the secret things which are now hidden from us. Then shall none of us be stirred to say: “Lord, if it had been otherwise, then it would have been well;” but we shall all say with one voice: “Lord, blessed may you be, for it is thus, it is well; and now we truly see that all things are done as you ordained before anything was made.
