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.

Greatest gifts of Life

A group of students were asked to list what they thought 
were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.”
Though there were some disagreements, the following 
received the most votes:
1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter’s Basilica
7. China’s Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one 
student had not finished her paper yet. So she asked 
the girl if she was having trouble with her list.
The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite 
make up my mind because there were so many.”
The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have,
and maybe we can help.”The girl hesitated, then read,
“I think the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ are:”
1. to see
2. to hear
3. to touch
4. to taste
5. to feel
6. to laugh
7. and to love.”
The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.
The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that 
we take for granted are truly wondrous! 
A gentle reminder — that the most precious things
in life cannot be built by hand or or brought by man.
