An Inspirational

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 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.
