Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Anyone can be susceptible to the blues

on August 12, 2014

Even though most of us have never met Robin Williams, we are deeply saddened by his loss. He was a great man who made us laugh and feel good, and I was somewhat surprised to know that he was dealing with depression himself. When I feel blue, I look for happy thoughts, and thinking of Aladdin or Hook or Mrs Doubtfire gives me smiles. So it’s just tragic that he (and others like him) have felt so poor about their lives that they would end it. I guess anyone is susceptible to depression.

There are so many friends, family, and fans that love and care for him. Likewise, when there’s someone you know that’s dealing with depression, be there to support them and lift them up. Refer them to

In tribute to Robin Williams, here’s some of his inspiring quotes:

“Carpe Diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary!” – The Dead Poets Society
“Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.” – Aladdin
“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.” – The Dead Poets Society
“You’ll have bad times, but it’ll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren’t paying attention to.” – Good Will Hunting
“You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you’ll win, no matter what the outcome.” – Patch Adams
“All you have to do is think one happy thought, and you’ll fly like me.” – Hook
“Crying never helped anybody do anything, okay? You have a problem you face it like a man.” – Jumanji
“But if there’s love, dear… those are the ties that bind, and you’ll have a family in your heart, forever.” – Mrs. Doubtfire

I hope he’s at peace now and bringing some laughs in heaven. He will be thoroughly missed.

Robin Williams, 7-21-1951 to 8-11-2014
