Sunday Sayings Inspired by the Pope's Visit . . .

While I'm not a follower of organized religion, I have a very strong belief in a Higher Power.  My belief has helped me thru some very difficult times in my life and continues to do so every day.  I've been following Pope Francis' visit to our country.  I am drawn to this beautiful human being.  For me, he symbolizes peace, love, acceptance and, most of all, hope.  To see people come together with such joy for this man makes me smile.  He truly is a Pope of the people.  He is a Pope of the children.  He is a Pope of the poor and of the sick.  I don't think he feels all that comfortable with all the pomp and circumstance that is bestowed upon him.  I think he just wants to do what I believe is what we are put on this earth to do.  Help one another.  Be kind to one another.  Love one another.  As I looked for a "Sunday Saying" today, I came upon one that inspired me because I believe it encompasses ALL of what we're here to do yet it's the simplest of things for most . . .  SMILE.  : )

We all smile in the same language:

“We are the same as plants, as trees, as other people, as the rain that falls. We consist of that which is around us, we are the same as everything. If we destroy something around us, we destroy ourselves. If we cheat another, we cheat ourselves.” — Buddha:
