Blessed is he who has learned to admire but not to envy,
to follow but not imitate,
to praise but not to flatter,
and to lead but not manipulate.

Time
Too slow for those who wait.
Too swift for those who fear
Too long for those who grieve.
Too short for those who rejoice.
But for those who love, time is not.

Yes Wouldn't It?
If we noticed little pleasures
As we noticed littles pains.
If we quite forgot our losses
And remembered all our gains.
If we looked for people's virtues
And their faults refused to see
What a comfortable happy cheerful place
This world would be.

Nature forms us.
Sin deforms us:
School informs us:
But only Christ transforms us.

If you can't be a highway, then just be a trail:
If you can't be the sun, be a star.
It isn't by size that you win or fail:
Be the best of whatever you are.

Don't walk before me
I may not follow,
Don't walk behind me
I may not lead.
Just walk beside me
And be my friend.

Just to be tender,
Just to be glad the whole day through,
Just to be cheery when things go wrong,
Just to drive sadness away with a song,
Just to let love be our daily key-
That is God's will for you and me.

God has for you
A light for every shadow.
A plan for every tomorrow.
A key for every problem and
A baum for every sorrow.

The three great essentials of happiness are:
Something to do,
Someone to love,
And something to hope for.

What is charity?
It's silence when your words would hurt.
It's patience when your neighbor's hurt.
It's deafness when some scandal flows.
It's thoughtfulness for others woes.
It's promptness when stern duty calls.

A little more kindness in word and in deed.
A little more boosting that others may need.
A little more love for the folks that we know,
A little more effort so friendships may grow.
Just a little of these-as we plod along here-
Will make it a wonderful, wonderful year.

Best things to give
To your friend-loyalty:
To your enemy-forgiveness:
To your boss-service:
To a child-a good example:
your parents-gratitude and devotion:
To your wedded mate-love and faithfulness:
To all men-charity:
To God-your life.

I have only just a minute.
Only sixty seconds in it.
Forced upon me.
Can't refuse it.
Didn't chose it.
But it's up to me to use it.
I must suffer if I lose it.
Give account if I abuse it.
Just a tiny little minute-
But eternity is in it.

Happiness is good.
The place to be happy is here.
The time to be happy is now.
The way to be happy is to help make others happy.

Some go to church just for a walk.
Some go there to laugh and talk.
Some go there for observation.
Some go there for speculation.
Some go there to sleep and nod.
We should go there to worship God.

Do all the good you can.
By all the means you can.
In all the ways you can.
In all the places you can.
At all the times you can.
To all the people you can.
As long as ever you can.



Why spend the day in fear,
When help is always near.
God is by your side
In Him you can confide.

We all must feel some pain
And face our daily trial.
We than shall feel the gains
When God on us does smile.

Sometimes it's hard to cope
With all that we must face.
Hold tight to faith and hope
And know you have God's grace.

When words are rude,
And thoughts are crude
You need to clean
Out all that mean.

Open your heart today
Kind words to others say.
Let positive fill your mind
To others' faults be blind.
