be glad of life

A friend just recently gave this to me and I thought I would share………

be glad of life
becuase it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars; to be satisfied with your possessions; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by your admirations rather than by your disgusts; to covet nothing that is your neighbors except his KINDNESS OF HEART AND GENTLENESS OF MANNERS; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends…and to spend as much time as you can, with body and spirit. these are little guidposts on the footpath to peace.
(henry van dyke)

SO just a thought for the day. Sometimes we need to be reminded to slow down and enjoy the blessings God has given us, not worry about what we dont have and what we think we need.

I will have new pics to post later 🙂 Go out and enjoy this beautiful day!
