“One Of These Days”...

“One Of These Days”....
I got this beautiful message in my inbox..Wish to share with you all:)
Today we have higher buildings and wider highways, but shorter temperaments and narrower points of view.
We spend more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses, but smaller families. We have more compromises, but less time. We have more knowledge, but less judgment. We have more medicines, but less health.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk much, we love only a little, and we hate too much.
We reached the moon and came back, but we find it troublesome to cross our own street and meet our neighbors. We have conquered the outer space, but not our inner space.
We have higher income, but less morals… These are times with more liberty, but less joy… With much more food, but less nutrition…
These are days in which two salaries come home, but divorces increase. These are times of finer houses, but more broken homes.
That’s why I propose that as of today -- You do not keep anything for a special occasion, because every day that you live is a special occasion. Search for knowledge, read more, sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to the needs. Pass more time with your family, eat your favorite food, visit the place you love. Life is a chain of moments of enjoyment; it isn’t only survival.
Use your crystal goblets. Do not save your best perfume… use it every time you feel you want it. Take out from your vocabulary phrases like, “one of these days” and “someday”. Let’s write that letter we thought of writing “one of these days…”
Let’s tell our families and friends how much we love them. Never pass up a chance at adding laughter and joy to your life. Every day, hour, and minute are special… Because you never know if it will be your last…
“one of these days” can be very far away, and you may not be there to see it…

I Thank You Lord!

I Thank You Lord
For All  the Blessings
You Gave me This Year..
For the Sunny days and
for the sad, cloudy days..
For the peaceful afternoon
and for the Long dark nights...

Thank you for the health and sickness
for the sorrows and Joys I had this year.
Thank you for all things you lent me and
then took back again..

Thank you lord for the friendly smiles and
for the helping hands I received ..

Thank You Lord for the loneliness, for difficulties,
for uncertainties and tears and for a struggle along;
because all these brought me close to you.
Thank you Lord for all the blessings
That You stowed upon me...

Thank You Lord for all the times
 I almost went astray..You guided me back
On the narrow path and led me on the way.

I thank You for all Your timely help
In all those days of strife
I thank You Lord
For Your gift of eternal life

I don't know what awaits me this year?
Whatever you wish .. My Lord,

And Love..Love for you  each day
and for those around me..

Giving me patience, humility, yielders
and a giving heart, Give me..
Lord ! you know what is good for me
that which I know not how to ask;

Grant me an obedient heart and listening ears
An alert mind and active hands. So that
I may submit to your perfect will of my life.
Oh Lord! Walk with me, please, in every day and every hour..
Thank You, Lord, for Your blessings on me.
