Be Grateful

Be grateful for…

Be grateful for the skies of blue that smile from day to day;

Be grateful for the kindly friends that walk along your way;

Be grateful for the health you own, the work you find to do,

For round about you there are less fortunate than you.

Be grateful for the growing trees, the roses soon to bloom,

The tenderness of kindly hearts that shared your days of gloom;

Be grateful for the morning dew, the grass beneath your feet,

The soft caresses of your babes & all their laughter sweet.

Acquire the grateful habit, learn to see how blessed you are,

How much there is to gladden life, how little life to mar!

And what if rain shall fall today & you with grief are sad;

Be grateful that you can recall the joys that you have had.

–Edgar Guest

A Legend of Gratitude

Posted by happypizza on November 11, 2008

There is a legend about two angels who were sent to earth to gather up the prayers of mankind.

One was to fill his basket with their petitions and the other was to gather their expressions of thankfulness. Some time later they both went back to the heavens.

One had a basket heaped high and running over with the innumerable petitions of men. The other returned with a sad and heavy heart, for his basket was almost empty.

The thanks of men were heard rarely on earth, even though the angel had searched diligently.

Let us not forget to express our thankuflness in our prayers.

Quotables…..

Rock Bottom:

  • God’s love hangs on even when we let go.

  • When you hit bottom, that’s when you can start on your way up, with God’s help.

  • Failure, like the darkness of night, may slow me down. But the dawn will come, the sun will shine again, and I will be on my way.

  • As sure as the sun rises, God’s love will always be there for you.

  • What looks like the end of the road is more often just a bend in the road.

  • When we know that God loves us, we know that everything is going to be okay.

  • If you can look beyond your problems, you will see that those dark spots are merely the shadows of bigger and better things to come.

  • Failure cannot defeat the man who will try again.

  • The sun rises every day, and every night the stars shine.

  • It is in coming to the end of our own strength, accepting that we have weaknesses, and admitting that we need God’s help, that we find our full potential.

  • If we never experienced failure, we would never appreciate success.

  • At the bottom, there are only two possibilities: either you stay there and die, or you fight and slowly lift yourself out of the hole.

  • The purpose of our existence is not to make a living, but to make a life.

  • Setbacks aren’t losses, they’re opportunities–vacant lots on which to build new dreams.

  • No matter how low they take you today’s mistakes can’t keep you from trying again tomorrow.

  • Just as the crushing of a rose brings out it’s sweet perfume, so the difficulties of life release the sweetness within us. If we let them, they can bring out qualities such as love for others, tenderness, compassion, humility, and closeness to loved ones.
