Lift Us Up

I don't know about you - but I'm just in need of some encouragement.

Let's allow the wise words of others and the powerful word of God to lift us all up today:

"The best laughter, the laughter that can heal, the laughter that has the truest ring, is the laughter that flowers out of a love for life and its Giver." - Maxine Hancock

...Mary sat at the Lord's feet, listening to what [Jesus] taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, 'Lord, doesn't it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me."
But the Lord said to her, "My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her. - Luke 10:39-42

"A joyful heart is like a sunshine of God's love, the hope of eternal happiness, a burning flame of God...And if we pray, we will become that sunshine of God's love - in our own home, the place where we live, and in the world at large. " - Mother Teresa

...the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. - from 1 John 4:4

Enjoy the rest of your week, Sweet Ones :)
