A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit. (Proverbs 15:13)

We were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. (1 Thessalonians 2:7)

For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory. (1 Thessalonians 2:11-12)

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)
