Sometimes there are words that soothe the soul
A friend is someone who
dances with you in the sunlight
and walks with you in the shadows.
"There are two ways of spreading light...
to be the candle,
or the mirror that reflects it."
You have 1,140 minutes in every day.
How would your life be different if
you spent just 15 of those minutes
daily giving thanks?
Just 15 minutes filling your mind
with concrete examples of how
fortunate you are?
Most of us would discover even after
a few days that the exercise was
Poet Courtland Sayers put it this way:
Five thousand breathless dawns all new;
One million flowers fresh in dew.
Five thousand sunsets wrapped in gold;
One million snowflakes served ice cold.
Five quiet friends, one baby's love;
One white sea of clouds above.
One June night in a fragrant wood;
One heart that loved and understood.
I wondered when I waked that day --
In God's name -- how could I ever pay?
For every minute you are angry with someone,
you lose sixty seconds of happiness
that you can never get back.
"When a friend hurts us,
we should write it down in the sand,
where the winds of forgiveness
get in charge of erasing it away,
and when something great happens,
we should engrave it in the stone
of the memory of the heart,
where no wind can erase it."
(The Human Touch)
'Tis the human touch in this world
The touch of your hand and mine,
Which means far more to the fainting heart
Than shelter and bread and wine;
For shelter is gone when the night
And bread lasts only a day,
But the touch of the hand
and the sound of the voice
Sing on in the soul always.
~Spencer Micheal Free~
"Dance like no one is watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like no one is listening,
Live like it's heaven on earth."
Tomorrows another day,
and I'm thirsty anyway,
so bring on the rain.
"Reach for the moon,
the worst that can happen is,
that you'll fall among the stars."
Put your troubles
In a pocket
With a hole in it.
