Weekly thoughts and announcements from our Pastor, Fr. Tom Lewandowski.

Happiness!

Maybe God wanted us to meet the wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right  person, we know how to be grateful for that gift.  +++  Maybe when the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one that has been opened for us.  +++ Maybe the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on the porch and swing with, never say a word, then walk away feeling that it was the best conversation you’ve ever had. +++  Maybe it is true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it is true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until  it arrives. +++ Don’t go for looks, they deceive. Don’t go for wealth, even that fades away.  Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.  Find the one that makes your heart smile. +++ There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them up from your dreams and hug them for real. +++ Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go; be want you want to be, because you only have one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do. +++ The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, enough trials to make them strong, enough sorrow to keep them human, enough hope to make you happy. +++ Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. +++

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. +++  When you were born, you were crying and everyone else around you was smiling.  Live your life so that when you die, you are the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
