It is easy to get discouraged when you try something and it doesn’t work the first time.

If everyone stopped after one attempt there would be a lot of inventions out thereContinue reading “Don’t Let Life’ Setbacks Stop You”
Too often today people are looking down, focused only on their phones, their tablets, rushing to the next meeting or class. We miss all the joys of spending time with the people around us when we are looking down.

If everyone did one thing each day to lift someone else a little higher, make them feel just a little bit better, the world would be a happier place. Today is not over, what are you waiting for? Find an opportunity to brighten up someones’ day.
Sometimes we all feel like no one really sees us. This is not true, those who love us see us. Sometimes it is a friend or someone within our family, but they know even when we think they don’t. God sees you and knows you intimately.
