Story of the Week
*****************
Mother Teresa was a happy person. In the middle of the poverty and illness and hopelessness of Calcutta she exuded joy. Listen to something she wrote. It's called,.....

"Anyway"

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, others may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

If you give the world the best you have, it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and other people anyway.

The Prayer

Dear God,        
        I care not so much what others may think of me. It is only what You think of me that Truly matters.

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

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