Some thoughts by Mother Teresa, taken from a flip calendar titled "Heart of Joy":
"We too often focus only on the negative aspect of life.
If we were willing to see the good and the beautiful things that surround us,
we would be able to transform our families,
From there, we would change our next-door neighbors
and then others who live in our neighborhood or city.
We would be able to bring peace and love to our world
which hungers so much for these things." *
*"Communion with Christ gives us
our strength, our joy, and our love."
"As we received freely, we give freely.
This is a beautiful gift from God."
"God wants our will and our desire to be for him,
for our family, for our children,
for our brethren, and for the poor."
"He is the Life that I want to live.
He is the Light that I want to radiate.
He is the Way to the Father.
He is the Love with which I want to love.
He is the Joy that I want to share.
Jesus is Everything to me.
Without him, I can do nothing."
