Mother's Day:


Thought for today: Today's quotes will all be from Mother Teresa.

A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace.

Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.

Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing.

Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness.

Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.

When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.

Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.

Fine Art and Jewelry. Have a sunny day.
