Life Is A Gift
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
Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to
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.
