"Let me start this day with a happy thought because if I start with a happy thought, I will continue it with a happy action which will in turn give me happy results making my entire day fruitful." Roman Sleeveless
"A computer gives back to you the information you feed into it. In the same way your mind and your life give you what you think about. Think positive things which are good and inspiring and see the changes."
"We get to choose which sources of information we feed our mind. But this privilege and freedom is also a responsibility. God longs to bless us, but that blessing remains dormant until our heart delights in knowing and doing His will."
"If this is to be a Happy New Year, a year of usefulness, a year in which we shall live to make this earth better, it is because God will direct our pathway. How important then, to feel our dependence fully upon Him!" Matthew Simpson
Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world - stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death - and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem over two thousand years ago is the image and brightness of the Eternal Love? Then you can keep Christmas. ~Henry Van Dyke
“Christmas can be celebrated in the school room with pine trees, tinsel and reindeers, but there must be no mention of the man whose birthday is being celebrated. One wonders how a teacher would answer if a student asked why it was called Christmas.” ~Ronald Reagan
"Christmas is a gift of love wrapped in human flesh and tied securely with the strong promises of God. It is more than words can tell, for it is a matter for the heart to receive, believe and understand." Unknown
"'When Christmas is over,' said the merchant to the minister, 'it's over, and it's our job to rid the store of Christmas in a day.' 'Well,' the minister replied, 'I've got a bigger job - to keep Christmas in the hearts of my people for all year.'" Log of the Good Ship Grace
"The great challenge left to us is to cut through all the glitz and glam of the season that has grown increasingly secular and commercial, and be reminded of the beauty of the One who is Christmas." Bill Crowder
"Remember while December brings the only Christmas Day, in the year let there be Christmas in the things you do and say; Wouldn't life be worth the living, wouldn't dreams be coming true if we kept the Christmas spirit all the whole year through?" --unknown
"It costs you nothing to be grateful and appreciative, yet it has a considerable impact on the quality of your life. So, don't waste another minute. Every day, reflect on the priceless gifts you've been enjoying"
For three things I thank God every day of my life; thanks that He has vouchsafed me knowledge of His works; deep thanks that He has set in my darkness the lamp of faith; deep, deepest thanks that I have another life to look forward to--a life joyous with light and flowers and heavenly song. Helen Keller
How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people. -- Sir John Templeton
Thou hast given so much to me, Give one thing more, — a grateful heart; Not thankful when it pleaseth me, As if Thy blessings had spare days, But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise. ~George Herbert
The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings! ~Henry Ward Beecher
