Today I send you a collection of 36 tips to get the most out of life that a friend would send me. Although we do not pretend that they are "the word of God", the truth is that they contain a lot of "common sense" that, as we have said many times, nothing is so "common".

Take a look and please let the Lord use them to draw attention to some of them about things that we are not doing and that could be robbing us of some of the wealth and joy that life has for us.

Why not put these tips into practice all this week? I assure you they will be worth it. God bless you.
