Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it is learned.

Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares, and brings you closer to me.

I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to give me happiness. God said no!

I give you blessings: Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me. God said….Ahhhhh,

Finally you have the idea. Know that loving God can only be if you love each oth-er. This day is yours don’t throw it away. May God Bless and keep you. “To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world”. May the Lord make his face to shine upon and give you peace…..forever!!
