“A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.”

~ Denis Waitley ~

If you should meet someone without a smile, give them one of yours. No other gift could cost you less to give or be of such great value when received.

~ Chick Todd ~

“Work for justice with joyous compassion, dispense mercy with generous kindness, live righteously, and walk humbly before God and man.”

Jaspard to Fortitude Foundling in The Adventures of Fortitude Foundling

“Pay attention to your dreams. They are the map-reading system for the many precious moments in your life. The best way to get through life is to live every single moment of it, waking or sleeping, because each of them is brand new.

“Hold on to them. Share them. Make them realities. Make sure you give them the resources they need to survive. Get help with them. Give help for them. Make sure they are dreams, and not illicit appetites. Dreams have a purity that is edifying, enlightening, and uplifting. They are spiritual, and therefore a gift from God. They are your lifeboat in a sea of doubts and woes. They are the very best reflection of your soul which is made in the image of God. He created you to contain, use, and enjoy one of his most essential characteristics: Self-determination. Some call this gift “Free Will.” It was through an act of his will that he created all that there is (including you, beloved), and without that act of his will nothing would exist. The same power of self-determination is in you, and your dreams are the guide to using that power. Let your dreams, then, be your map and compass as you journey through life. In doing so, you honor the Giver by honoring the Gift. It is the highest form of worship, and also the simplest. It requires only that you accept the gift of self-determination and use it to make your dreams come true.”

Spoken by Talrad to Forti

Dreams are the theme song for the experience of Hope. Prayer is the instrument that plays the song. Sing a dream to God and He will give it His Harmony.

Whatever, whenever, wherever, whoever, however, if ever, forever — at your service.
