I have found that at times in life that next to a powerful sermon or a powerful song is a powerful thought.  In my studies concerning the things of ministry I accumulate information that I feel will bless the body of Christ.  The purpose of this article is to share some of that information with you.  I hope it blesses you as it has blessed me.  Please consider the following thoughts: 1) It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we loose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.  2) May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.  3) Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.  4) 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.  5) Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you back!  Don’t expect love in return!  Just wait for it to grow in their heart but if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.  6) Don’t go for looks, they can deceive.  Don’t go for wealth, even that fades away.  Go for someone who makes you smile.  It takes only a smile to make dark seems bright.  Find the one that makes your heart smile.  7) Maybe God wants you to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when you finally meet the right person, you will know how to be grateful for that gift.  As a final reminder, look at a good thought as you look at a good seed to be sown.  If planted in good soil (your mind/heart) you will experience good growth.
