Of money and power to buy things brand new.

When you look in your heart, your soul, and your mind.
For when you are willing to share what's within,
Your fervent search for riches will end.
The joy and the laughter, the smile that you bring;
The heart unafraid to love and to sing;
The hand always willing to help those in need;
Ones quick to reach out, to labor and fee.
So thank you for sharing these great gifts inside;
The caring, the cheering, the hug when one cried.
Thanks for the energy, encouragement too,
And thank you for sharing the treasures in you.
Give people more than they expect,
and do it cheerfully.

After a while, you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn....
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure....
That you really are strong, and you really do have worth...
And you learn and learn....
With every good-bye, you learn.
Veronica A. Shoffstall
The more you give, the more you get
The more you do unselfishly
The more you live abundantly.
The more of everything you share,
The more you laugh, the less you fret.
The more you'll always have to spare.
The more you love, the more you'll find
That life is good and friends are kind.
For only what we give away,
Enriches us from day to day.
Prayer is the tiny nerve that moves the hand of God.
Sometimes God's greatest gifts are prayers unanswered.
HAPPY IS THE PERSON WHO KNOWS:
what to remember of the past
what to enjoy of the present
and what to plan for the future
Great are they who see that spiritual is stronger than
any material force, that thoughts rule the world.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

and the lock of the night
The true calling of a Christian is not to do extraordinary things,
but to do ordinary things in an extraordinary way!
God has given us TWO ears
and ONE mouth so that we can listen
twice as much as we speak

With Jesus we have an endless hope.

please don't let us forget that we cried.
LOVE: Jesus came to pay a debt He didn't owe,
because we owed a debt we couldn't pay!
No one can arrive from being talented alone.
God gives talent, work transforms talent into genius.
A friend is one who strengthens you with prayers,
blesses you with love,
and encourages you with hope.
Give a little kindness,
Give it every day,
Give a little tenderness,
As you go on your way,
The well of Love is endless,
And as long as you may live,
You'll find the more you give your love,
The more there'll be to give.
The best thing to give
your enemy is forgiveness
To an opponent, tolerance;
To a friend, your heart;
To a child, a good example;
To a father, deference;
To a mother, conduct
that will make her proud of you;
To yourself, respect;
To all men, charity.
Admit your errors before someone else exaggerates them.
Talking is sharing, but listening is caring.
Your imagination gives you wings,
but only by choice do you take flight!!
"We Don't See Things As They Are,
We See Them As We Are"
When I want to speak
let me think first:
Is it true?
Is it kind?
Is it necessary?
If not, let it be left unsaid.
THE WORLD NEEDS
A little more kindness, and a little less creed,
A little more giving, and a little less greed;
A little more smile, and a little less frown,
A little less kicking a man when hes down;
A little more "we", and a little less "I",
A little more laugh, and a little less cry;
A few more flowers on the pathway of life,
and fewer on graves at the end of the strife,
