- As Gandhi proclaimed, "happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony"... Oh to live deeply, finding success in channeling our energy more effectively!
- The words below hit home with their reappearance in my inbox last week. Images and faces we see each day are a vivid reminder of the abundance of opportunities and the lifespan of influence. Frequently I hear the voice of Jim Parker echoing a piece of wisdom he blessed me with in 2002, "at any time, we can easily be placed for just one person". We could be at school, in a city or an office, on a trip, or in this world for just one person.
I'd much prefer a single, rich, confident yes to any one of these questions, over a whole list of hopefully's... even if it takes a lifetime to achieve.
Is anybody happier because you passed her way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to her today? Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single sister of the many that you passed. Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does the girl whose hopes were fading, now with courage look ahead? Did you waste the day, or lose it? Was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness, or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber, do you think that God will say, "You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?"
