St Paddy's Day

May love and laughter light your days
And warm your heart and home.

May good and faithful friends be yours,
Wherever you may roam.

May peace and plenty bless your world
With joy that long endures.

May all life's passing seasons
Bring the best to you and yours!

Do From the Heart

Do the kinds of things that come from the heart.
When you do, you won't be dissatisfied,
you won't be envious,
you won't be longing for
somebody else's things.

On the contrary,
you'll be overwhelmed with what
comes back.

You are as young and old ...

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt,
as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear,
as young as your hope, as old as your despair.
