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 another remember that you have to face your own conscience 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
Celebrate it

And fulfill it
