Yes– it is sometimes hard to obey St. Paul’s “Rejoice.” We must try to take life moment by moment. The actual present is usually pretty tolerable, I think, if only we refrain from adding to its burden that of the past and the future. How right Our Lord is about “sufficient to the day.” Do even pious people in their reverence for the more radiantly divine element in His sayings, sometimes attend too little to their sheer practical common-sense?

~C.S. Lewis, from a letter to Mary Willis Shelburne, May 4, 1962
