There is nothing worse than seeing a loved one
in pain. Life can get pretty rough sometimes,
and our emotions can veer toward places we
would rather they did not go.
We can turn our mental blocks into building blocks.
We don’t always know why hard times
come to us; sometimes they’re simply a
result of living in an imperfect world...
a world corrupted by sin.
When hard times do happen, by faith,
we know that God is still in control.
When tough times barge into our lives, we may suffer
major setbacks and be forced to reconstruct our plans
and our priorities; however, even during our darkest
days, we must never forget that every obstacle, every
setback... could put us a step closer to fulfilling God's
plan and purpose for our lives. Our setbacks could be
stepping stones to a better life.

making allowances and excuses. Being of good cheer
empowers us to rise above the moment and situation.

A smile enriches those who receive it
without making poorer those who give it.
It only takes 14 muscles to smile and takes but a moment,
but the memory of a smile can sometimes last forever,
in one's heart.
We are drawn to people who smile.
Frowns push people away.
A smile draws people in.
Smiling is a great way to make
ourselves stand out while helping our
body to function better
Smiling helps improve our health,
our stress level, and our attractiveness.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
Smiling is infectious,
You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today,
And I started smiling too.
love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.
