To quiet your hurts and sorrows and disappointments……..

To make your journey smoother……

To neutralize your lingering doubts…..

To fill an empty heart…….

To forgive and , perhaps , forget…..

To appreciate your gifts, however small or large…..

To restore your emotional health……

To capture the positive……….

To live each day in peace and tranquility ,

………………….make happiness, satisfaction, and gratitude your priorities .

Will all the woes disappear ?   Absolutely not.  But it will help to know there’s always, always, a rainbow if you just seek it.

Life is a roller coaster :  up and down, up and down , and there’s no changing that.

But the  decision to understand  that sadness and  stress and  turmoil are always lurking is healthy.  That is a fact.  But it is even healthier to move on to acceptance and serenity .   Both give you peace of mind.

Love the sunshine,  the birds,  the camellias,  the church chimes,  the smiles,  the rain,   the volunteers,  the music,  the lenten roses , the poetry,  the breeze , the sunrise,  and on and on.  These are ours for the taking———-always with us .

Move on.  Move up.  Move out.

As our pastor says,  “Be blessed and a blessing “.
