Thought for the week: One should never take the easy road, but rather the right road no matter how long the travel.


Giving up doesn’t always mean you are weak. Sometimes it means that you are
strong enough to let go. God is closest to those with broken hearts. Count the
garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll. The emotion that breaks your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it. Let go. Why do you cling to pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday. It is not yours to judge. Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?
