Gift of Life

gift 1.jpg

 

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 is 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.

About cessyiel

Am about your average girl, very opinionated. I live in a glass half full world. In my world, every hurdle is a stepping stone to greatness. Every wall hides behind it bronze when I knock it down, and another appears, behind it there is silver. When stubbornness persists, and another emerges suddenly, the surety in my heart is that there is gold. I believe in possibilities with the right motion set in place. Writing is my comfort zone, and I put my heart out to express how we ought to respond to life and its many hurdles.
