“Blessed the man who follows not the counsel of the wicked nor walks in the way of sinners, nor sits in the company of the insolent, but delights in the law of the Lord and meditates on His law day and night.”

PRECIOUS LESSONS from Mother Teresa
(Credits to: Lotus Pond by R. Valencia and S. Bismark, PDI Sept. 19, 2015 p. G4)
*NOT ALL OF US CAN DO GREAT THINGS – BUT, WE CAN DO SMALL THINGS WITH GREAT LOVE.
*I ALONE CANNOT CHANGE THE WORLD – BUT, I CAN CAST A STONE ACROSS THE WATERS TO CREATE MANY RIPPLES.
*THESE ARE THE WAYS WE CAN PRACTICE HUMILITY: SPEAK AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE ABOUT YOURSELF. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. AVOID MANAGING OTHER PEOPLE’S AFFAIRS. AVOID CURIOSITY. ACCEPT CONTRADICTIONS AND CORRECTIONS CHEERFULLY. ACCEPT INSULTS AND INJURIES. ACCEPT BEING SLIGHTED, FORGOTTEN AND DISLIKED. BE KIND AND GENTLE, EVEN UNDER PROVOCATION. ALWAYS CHOOSE THE HARDEST.
*I’M A LITTLE PENCIL IN THE HAND OF WRITING GOD, WHO IS SENDING A LOVE LETTER TO THE WORLD.
*PRAYER ISN’T ASKING, IT’S PUTTING YOURSELF IN THE HANDS OF GOD – AND LISTENING TO HIS VOICE IN DEPTH OF OUR HEARTS.
*IF YOU’RE HUMBLE, NEITHER PRAISE NOR DISGRACE CAN TOUCH YOU – BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
*A LIFE NOT LIVED FOR OTHERS ISN’T LIFE AT ALL!
*NEVER WORRY ABOUT NUMBERS. HELP ONE PERSON AT A TIME – AND ALWAYS START WITH THE PERSON NEAREST YOU.
*GIVE YOURSELF FULLY TO GOD. HE’LL USE YOU TO ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS ON THE CONDITION THAT YOU BELIEVE MUCH MORE IN HIS LOVE THAN IN YOUR WEAKNESS.
*PEOPLE ARE UNREALISTIC, ILLOGICAL AND SELF-CENTERED – BUT LOVE THEM ANYWAY.
*LOVE IS FRUIT IN SEASON AT ALL TIMES – AND WITHIN REACH OF EVERY HAND!

Today is typically celebrated with fireworks, picnics, barbecues and family get-togethers which commemorate probably the most important day in our country’s history. As a nation, the United States of America is very blessed because of the sacrifice of all those who fought to procure and protect our freedoms.
If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God,
then we will be a nation gone under.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
the plans of his heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!
Let us never forget that we are the United…
