“The only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve others.” Albert Schweitzer~ theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician (1875-1965)

Even when your own need is great there will always be others who need more than you do. There’s great comfort to found in giving of yourself in the service of those less fortunate because it inspires a sense of abundance from which true prosperity can be manifest.
