The power of a smile. A smile can make a person feel happy and welcome. I think there is a reason why we can`t frown and smile at the same time. When we see someone that looks like they are having a bad day just smile. It will mean a whole to them. There is a saying a “smile is just a frown turned upside down” Let’ s make somebody day today. Smile .Shalom Peace and Love!
There is so much negativity in the world today however we can make the decision to be positive. One of our greatest characteristics should be displaying a positive attitude so that can have victory and not defeat in every area of my life. Shalom Peace Love Linda P. Thompson
We celebrate thanksgiving day every year in November. Thanksgiving is everyday. When we wake up in the morning the first things we should do is give thanks. We give thanks for waking up, getting up, dressing ourselves to go to work or just to do our daily activities. In everything give thanks. We can’t take anything for granted. Shalom , Peace and Love!
As the rain pours outside, the sound of the rain brings a gentle calm and a refreshing . Let’s meditate and allow the refreshing to come to our minds for a cleaning and renewal. Our old mindset is gone. We are starting with the new! Shalom Peace and Love!

Remember things can’t change until we change. It is a decision. Speak positively regarding the children acting up, spouse doesn’t bring the roses or pay enough attention to you, people on job acting up etc. Believe for a change and speak it even before you receive it. Linda P. Thompson
How do you feel when someone tells you that you look beautiful or you are such a pleasure to be around. It should make us feel good however sometimes compliments are hard to receive when people dont feel worthy . Sometimes voices from the childhood comes in to play reminding the person of the harsh words that were spoken to put them down therefore as an adult the individual finds it hard to believe the compliments are honest after being told that you are ugly ,dumb or just don’t add up to everyone. Since words are powerful, let’s use words wisely to build up people instead of tearing them down.
Have you ever thought about how powerful words are when we speak? Words bring about good or bad feelings. Sometimes we say we would never kill anyone with a gun or knife but do we ever think that harsh words can wound others and have a serious impact as well.
Let’s decide to make the best of each day to be joyful . Happiness is situational but joy is an emotion that helps up to remain calm and stable even if there is turmoil. Let’s decide to be joyful even in bad times. There are many things that can change us from being happy in a matter of seconds.
