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

Chapter 5, Page 20, Book 15

Joy is the happiness of love--love aware of its own inner happiness. Pleasure comes from without, and joy comes from within, and it is, therefore, within reach of everyone in the world.

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

May 20th - love and joy

Love - THE FEELING - is a fruit of love, the verb. 

Stephen Covey

Keep Calm and Carry On

With so much going on in our lives and in the world, love is something that can often take the back burner in our lives. No matter what may happen it is important for all of us to keep in mind the things that truly matter.  The way we carry on is determined by our attitude and a good attitude is what counts and carries us through many down times.

I’ve found that faith makes things possible even when our hearts may be unsettled. When we have faith, we can let out that breath we've been holding. We can relax.

Laughter is a another wonderful way to help release all that tension we build up. A good laugh can sometimes help calm me. 

When our nerves are frayed and our hearts unsettled, reaching out and doing something for someone else is a great way to forget what is ailing us too.

We just have to carry on no matter what. 

If you want to have the time of your life, change how you use the time in your life.

I like that "Keep Calm and Eat Chocolate". Chocolate is definitely one of my comfort foods :)

It is so true when we are hurting or going through tough times, it is good to reach out and help others; does help to take some of the stress off of us and it does help someone else to maybe feel better.

Oh yes, it is so easy to get side tracked. But the last Quote makes the important statement.


Not getting stressed is really important. Tim Fargo said it best, "If you want to have the time of your life, change how you use the time in your life."
