Hope will not be doomed to disappointment, because the love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. -Rom. 5:5

Reflection. Did you know that children do better in school when their parents encourage them to have a hopeful, positive attitude? Parents have the power to give their children a gift more valuable than anything money can buy, namely the gift of hope and encouragement. A pat on the back goes a long way.

Prayer. Heavenly Father, give me the grace to choose happiness.
