STOP AND THINK – Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections. (Tim Timberlake, protestant pastor)

If happiness depended on living in a perfect environment, none of us would know what it is like to be happy. No one lives in a perfect family, community, or society. But we know a lot of happy people, don’t we? How can that be? Well, as Timberlake suggests, it means we have to overlook the imperfect, strive for the best we can, and be happy in the effort.

The Lord God: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
