Put the Glass Down and See the Difference
The problems and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. But think about it a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed Ė incapable of doing anything.

Pay It Forward
As I walked to my car just amazed at God's love that had just been shown. I cried when I told my husband because I just felt right there, right then, in a world where there is so much going bad, I witnessed God's love.

The value of friendship: Priceless
Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture you can change a personís life. God puts us all in each otherís lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others.

The Second Chance Wont Come...
Life might not give you a second chance. So never waste a moment when you can make up for your deeds.
