It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 5, Page 6, Book 13





God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

WORD FOR TODAY:

Peace


Freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.






Breathe Deep. Smile. Hold the smile. There — feels better already, doesn’t it? Again…. Perfect!

Wouldn't it be great if life were like an elevator lifting us up to new heights easily and effortlessly. The only job we'd have to do would be to enjoy the ride to the top. But life is more like a stairway where we take it one step at a time, learning and growing as we go.

One of the secrets of happy and beautiful life, is to live one day at a time. If we would learn it, it would save us from the worry that in so many people spoils the day

We should never be anxious about either yesterday or tomorrow. Yesterday is gone, and we never can get it back to change anything in it. It is idle, therefore, to waste a moment of time or a particle of strength fretting over it. Tomorrow is not yet ours, and we cannot touch its life—until it becomes our today. 



 You'll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart. 

George Michael

Good word for me today. But thank goodness, my peace is restored. One shouldn't get upset at something they cannot change. PEACE is a good word to know.
