  1. This one is my favorite:

    The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions,
    not our circumstances."
    - Martha Washington

    It says that we can be happy no matter what. You see, you never know what circumstances you may end up in, in life. But if you have a good attitude, an attitude that tells you you will be alright no matter what (and that is the truth of the matter if you have the Lord -- you will be alright no matter what), you will be alright and at peace. Bc all things work together for good to him that loves the Lord.

    We can belly ache about so many things. Or we can go forth with a positive attitude, changing the things we can, and accepting the things we can't change! But there are so many things we CAN change. So we must go forth everyday with a brave attitude, working dilligently for our families, for the world, for the One who loves us and gave us life.

    May your attitude be right today, and may you remain in his perfect peace. :)
