Love, Forgiveness & Gratitude

LOVE:
REAL love is unconditional, loyal, kind, honest...

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

FORGIVENESS:
Don't hold grudges, instead forgive so you can be free, so you can have peace and happiness.

"If we really want to love, we must learn how to forgive." - Mother Theresa

GRATITUDE:
Finding gratitude not only in the good times, but even in the difficult times. There is so much to be thankful for no matter what the circumstances of life may bring. Finding thankfulness in the hard stuff brings blessing & joy.

"Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation." - Brian Tracy

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." - John F. Kennedy

"If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present….Gratefully" - Maya Angelou
