The way to happiness: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.

Heavenly Father, please walk through my house and take away all worries, sadness, financial crisis, illnesses; and please watch over and heal my family and friends. Please bring quiet where there is chaos, bring light where there is darkness and put love in our hearts. In Jesus' name, AMEN ♥
