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.

As you might know, the head of a company survived
9/11 because his son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was
his turn to bring donuts.

One woman was late because her
alarm clock didn't go off in time.

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
because of an auto accident.

One of them
missed his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
time to change.

car wouldn't start.

One went back to
answer the telephone ..

One had a Child that dawdled
and didn't get ready as soon as he should have.

One couldn't get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a band-aid. That is why he is alive today.

Now when I am stuck in traffic , miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone all the little things that annoy me I think to myself, This is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment..

Next time your morning seems to be going wrong , the children are slow getting dressed, You can't seem to find the car keys, You hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated; It May be just that
God is at work watching over you.

May God continue to bless you
with all those annoying little things
and may you remember their possible purpose.

A very strong video from 9/11

Balance in all things.......

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the Archangel found him resting on the seventh day.
He inquired, "Where have you been?"
God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."
"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."
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 achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats, carriers of peace, and producers of software."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."
God smiled, "There is another Washington. Wait till you see the idiots I put there."
