Thought for the week: A single moment of misunderstanding is so poisonous that is makes us forget the 100 lovable moments spent together within a minute.


Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live all of your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.

Trust yourself, then you will know how to live.

Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be you own, instead of someone else’s. Trust your ability. Trust is to human relationships what faith is to gospel living. It is the beginning place, the foundation upon which more can be built. Where trust is, love can flourish.

News is due by Saturday at 1 p.m. News will be accepted by call or text.
