BLESSINGS

 

When you have little, everything you receive is a precious blessing.

 

I remind myself daily to give thanks for the the things that seem trivial and mundane, yet they embrace my life. Moreover, God knows that I'm grateful for those things that seem very large.

There just isn’t a lot of me to give, but I’m certain that I am somebody. And since I am somebody, I should not use my station in life as an excuse not to lift the burdens of someone else. Rightfully so, I should do what I am cable of doing. And what I’m cable of doing I should do such with all my energy. With God's guidance, and without hesitation, or fanfare, I will do all those things I can do. 

 

People say waking up every day is a blessing from God. Well, why not show God you are grateful by performing as many acts of kindness as you can; now this would be much better than fearing a loving God and overwhelming Him with obligated praises.

 

If you wisely count your blessings, you will run out of numbers and die of old age before you are done.

 

Religion should be your desert and not your main course.

 

Be patient with your child, and your child will do likewise.

 

Don’t judge your children and they will not judge you. And don’t expect your children to be perfect and they won’t demand the same of you.


It is hypocritical for a man to pray when bad things come his way and he doesn’t pray and thank God for the good offerings. He should be grateful for those little things that he seldom notices.

 

I have never been blessed with much money, but I have been blessed with wisdom, faith and empathy.

 

Our blessings and performances are only a function of the gifts and talents that God meant for us to display.
