- 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 is 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.

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm
God explained, pointing to different
parts of earth. "For example,
northern Europe will be a place of
great opportunity and wealth, while
southern Europe is going to be poor.
Over here I've placed a continent of
white people, and over there is a
continent of black people. Balance
in all things."
God continued pointing to different
countries. "This one will be
extremely hot, while this one will
be very cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel , impressed by God's
work, then pointed to a land area
and said, "What's that one?"
"That's Washington State, the most
glorious place on earth. There are
beautiful mountains, rivers and
streams, lakes, forests, hills, and
plains. The people from Washington
State are going to be handsome,
modest, intelligent, and humorous,
and they are going to travel the
world. They will be extremely
sociable, hardworking, high

God smiled, "There is another
