You Are A Star

IMG_3036

Though the world can seem like a tough and hopeless place these days, take YOUR day and make the very best of it. Add fresh flowers to your home, eat a favorite food, take some time to read a good book or flip through a favorite magazine. Be good to yourself. YOU are a star! A bright and shining star!

((Hug)) yourself. Sounds corny, but give it a try. Tell yourself YOU are special.

Yes you are…

special….

special…..

special!

Take peace in knowing that you are loved and blessed.

1 Corinthians 13:13 - And now these three remain: faith, hope and love...
