The source of a true smile is an awakened mind. Smiling helps you approach the day with gentleness and understanding.

Just One Drop of Water

Another perspective on the importance of just one drop of water –

God Fills the Earth with Joy

The third psalm in our morning prayer today is Psalm 65

You still the tumult of the seas
(the roaring of their waves)
and the tumult of the people.

The ends of the earth stand in awe
at the sight of your wonders.
the lands of sunrise and sunset
You fill with Your joy.
