Smile though your heart is aching

Smile even though it's breaking.

When there are clouds in the sky

you'll get by.

If you smile through your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow

You'll see the sun come shining through

For you.

Light up your face with gladness,

Hide every trace of sadness.

Although a tear may be ever so near

That's the time you must keep on trying

Smile, what's the use of crying.

You'll find that life is still worthwhile-

If you just smile

Emotion, yet peace

OH, another one, i like, goes something like, "we rarely succeed at things we don't have fun doing."

matters too.

Mine is God never gives you more than you can handle.

This is and all things are possible through him....... These have both proven true over and over again recently as God smacked me in my face to go back and finish school and keeps somehow making things work, days by day. Even when IM sure it's not going to. Everyday it does.
