Learning to live in the present moment is part of the path of joy.
Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn that as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.
You've got to make a conscious choice every day to shed the old - whatever 'the old' means for you.
Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.
Real life isn't always going to be perfect or go our way, but the recurring acknowledgement of what is working in our lives can help us not only to survive but surmount our difficulties.
Always remember that striving and struggle precede success, even in the dictionary.
Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
Faith is the very first thing you should pack in a hope chest.
Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.
Let's choose today to quench our thirst for the ''good life'' we thinks others lead by acknowledging the good that already exists in our lives. We can then offer the universe the gift of our grateful hearts.
An authentic life is the most personal form of worship. Everyday life has become my prayer.
Every time we remember to say 'thank you,' we experience nothing less than heaven on earth.
