What are you going to do, now that you don't have to do anything? (Gerhard Forde) I also find this comes in handy since I have 7 children: "So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Jesus Christ, as quoted in Matthew 6:31-34 (NIV)
