From friends' facebook posts:

"God does not send us two classes of providences--one good, and one evil. All are good. Affliction is God's goodness in the seed. It takes time for a seed to grow and to develop into fruitfulness. Many of the best things of our lives--come to us first as pain, suffering, earthly loss or disappointment--black seeds without beauty--but afterward they grow into the rich harvest of righteousness! J. R. Miller"
 "It never seizes to amaze me how blessed my life has been for so many years! God loves doing the impossible in my life and I love it!!"  C. Z.
I so totally concur with both!

Love adds chocolate?

(I copied this from a friend--it's a li'l cheesy, but sweet. . .)
Love  Adds a Little Chocolate
A house is a house--until love comes through the door, that is. And love transforms a house into a very special home for very special people: your family.
Money, of course, can build a charming house, but only love can furnish it with a feeling of home. 
Duty can pack an adequate sack lunch, but love may decide to enclose a little note inside. 
Money can provide a television set, but love controls it and cares enough to say 'no' and take the guff that comes with it.
Obligation sends the children to bed on time, but love tucks the covers in around their necks and passes out kisses and hugs. 
Obligation can cook a meal, but love might embellish the table with a potted ivy trailing around slender candles. 
Duty writes many letters, but love adds joy. . .a joke or a picture or a fresh stick of gum inside.
Compulsion keeps a sparkling house, but love and prayer stand a better chance of producing a happy family.
Duty gets offended quickly if it isn't appreciated, but love learns to laugh a lot and to work for the sheer joy of doing it.
Obligation can pour a glass of milk, but quite often, love adds a little chocolate.
