I don't know how to say it
But somehow it seems to me
That maybe we are stationed
Just where God wants us to be,
That the place I'm fulfilling
Was the reason for my birth
And just to do the things I do
He sent me down to earth.
Sometimes I get to thinking
And as my labors I review
That I should have a higher place
With greater things to do.
But I've come to the conclusion
When my envying is stilled
That the place to which God has sent me
Is the place he wanted filled.
Since God knows and understands
All things of earth and sea,
I fancy that He placed me
Just where He wanted me.
So I'll plod along and struggle
In the hopes that when the day is through
That I'm really necessary
In what God wants to do.
And there isn't any service I can give
That I would scorn,
For it just might be the reason
God allowed me to be born!
When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2,000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. it just happened to be a 2,000-step process."
Your life is your gift from God, what you do with it is your gift back!
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
A smile is a curve that can very often set things straight!
"Most men are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great."
"Spread love everywhere you go: First of all in your house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to your next-door neighbor ...Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting."
I hope you all leave here feeling better and happier!
