harmony

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. – Mathma Gandhi

9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,[a] serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly.[b] Never be wise in your own sight. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it[c] to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12: 9-21

celebrate the children

celebrate

Celebrate the children they grow up all too fast –
They’re our hope for the future, our echoes of the past.
You are their role models, in all you do and say,
So teach them well to face a world that changes day by day.

Celebrate the children, give them hope and pride,
An honest set of values to be a constant guide –
Give them strength and patience to face tomorrow ìs fate,
For life gives us no guarantees; we labor and we wait.

Celebrate the children, with love and tender care,
Remember in a world of hope your dreams are theirs to share –
Support and stand behind them and help them find their way,
The leaders of tomorrow are the children of today.

Celebrate the children,
Celebrate the children,
Celebrate the children,
…they grow up all too fast
