Story of the Week
Make Yourself Happy
(By: Smitha)

"When the rain stopped, I felt like it would be perfect to go for an evening walk. I woke up my friend, who had broken her arm a month ago and was waiting for the cast to be removed, as I thought a walk would make her feel fresh too. Our walk led us to a fruit juice shop. As I was taking my last sip of tropical mango juice a little boy came running in to get some juice and seemed to be in a hurry. The little one did not realize that tinned juice cost a bit more than fresh juice. When he realized that he did not have enough money to buy it, he started to walk back to his Dad to get more money. It looked like they were in a hurry and did not want to miss their bus. I called the boy and gave him the canned juice and paid for it. The boy accepted it, smiled, thanked me and ran to his Dad. They both waved at me as they got onto the bus. It was a small incident that made me realize that it isn't difficult to make yourself happy. You just have to do small acts of kindness and brighten another person's day."

Pastor's Quote of the Week
"When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace."

(From: HH The Dalai Lama)

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        I can think of nothing else to say right now but Thank You, but then, that kind of Does say it all.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
