Lift the Shadows and Lighten the Task
Look upon matters in a cheerful light, seeking to lift the shadows that, if cherished, will envelop the soul.
Cultivate sympathy for others. Let cheerfulness, kindness, and love pervade the home.
This will increase a love for religious exercises, and duties large and small will be performed with a light heart.

Proverbs 15:1 KJV
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
Colossians 3:12-14 KJV
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
