Life is a Gift 2


Today before you think of saying an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children - Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn't clean or sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive - Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another - Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one Maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around.Life is a gift, Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, And fulfill it.

Life is what you make it

Life is what you make of it

Once there was an old man and very wise man. Everyday he and his granddaughter would sit outside a gas station in his rocking chair, waiting to greet tourists as they passed through his small town. One day a tall man who surely had to be a tourist, began looking around as if he were checking out the area for a place to live. “So what of kind of town is this?” he asked. The old man replied, “Well, what kind of town are you from?” The tourist said, “One where everyone is very critical of each other. It’s a real negative place to live.” The old man said “ You know, that’s just how this town is”. Later, a family passing through also stopped for gas. The father stepped out and asked the old man, “Is this town a good place to live?” “Well, what about the town you are from? The father said, “In the town I am from everyone is very close and always willing to lend a helping hand. I really hate to leave it. The old man smiled and said, “You know, that’s a lot like this small town”.

After the family had left the granddaughter looked up and asked, “Grandpa, how come when the first man came you told him this was a terrible place to live, yet when the family came you told them it was a wonderful place to live?” The old man looked down into his granddaughter’s wondering eyes and said, “ No matter where you go, you take your attitude with you. And that’s what makes it terrible or wonderful”
Have a lovely weekend and also remember that

Yes, life is what you make it!!

Let's us also be grateful to God for the gift of Life because life is a gift and not a right

Christian Ways To Reduce Stress

An Angel says, "Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice."
1. Pray
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.
5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
15 Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
16 Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
17. Get enough rest.
18. Eat right.
19. Get organized so everything has its place.
20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
22. Every day, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.
25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good "Thank you Jesus."
27. Laugh.
28. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.
30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
32. Sit on your ego.
33. Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
36 . Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU. "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)

Take Time

Take time to learn,
It is a sign of greatness.
Take time to think,
It is a source of power.
Take time to plan,
It is the first step to fulfillment.
Take time to work,
It is the price of success.
Take time to dream,
It is the fountain of achievement.
Take time to act,
It is an expression of belief in oneself.
Take time to give,
It is a symbol of maturity.
Take time to smile,
It is the window of the soul.
Take time to love,
It is a gift of God.

-Floyd Brown
