Hello everyone. Remember, every day is a new day and the Bible says in Proverbs 14:29, “Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.” Think about it: In our world, we want everything, and we want it now. We want everything microwaved, instead of waiting on something to really be slow-cooked in the Crock-Pot. It may be hard in the moment to wait, but patience always pays off.
Remember: Happiness is trying to give something away—a smile. It can’t be done. It always comes back, even a confirmed grouch will return it. Try it.
