One of the best I Have read on Life...

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We ' ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We ' ve added years to life not life to years. We ' ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor! We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We ' ve done larger things, but not better things. We ' ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We ' ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We ' ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time wh! en there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this thought to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just ignore... Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn ' t cost a cent. Remember, to say, ' I love you ' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it.
A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

An Old Story .. . .Good to get Reminded.‏

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off! Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.
2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.
3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.

He Knows Your Name

When you are having problems
And feel there's no help around
First take one step forward
To get to higher ground.
If you think that God doesn't hear you,
Then that,is really a shame.
Not only does He hear every prayer you say;
But,He Know you,By your Name.
It does not matter just where you are
When you call upon the Lord,
He will be listening with a well-tuned ear.
And will understand every word.
Be ready to listen to what He says,
As He tell you what to do.
For that, will be your instructions.
Because the rest will be up to you.
You should thank Him for His Kindness,
Because He was standing by.
And not, As you thought;He has turned away.
And would,never hear you cry.
Even though you have made so many mistakes,
He will not hold you to blame.
For Now,You are fully Forgiven.
And remember, He Knows Your Name.

A woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirrorand noticed she had only three hairs on her head. Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today?"So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. "H-M-M," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?" So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail."So she did and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. "YEA!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"
What an attitude!!!!
Wish I were like that all the time.....

A good story...

One day a man saw a old lady, strandedon the side of the road, but even inthe dim light of day, he could see sheneeded help. So he pulled up in frontof her Mercedes and got out. HisPontiac was still sputtering when heapproached her.Even with the smile on his face, shewas worried. No one had stopped tohelp for the last hour or so. Was hegoing to hurt her? He didn't looksafe; he looked poor and hungry.He could see that she was frightened,standing out there in the cold. Heknew how she felt. It was that chillwhich only fear can put in you.He said, "I'm here to help you, ma'am.Why don't you wait in the car whereit's warm? By the way, my name isBryan Anderson."Well, all she had was a flat tire, butfor an old lady, that was bad enough.Bryan crawled under the car lookingfor a place to put the jack, skinninghis knuckles a time or two. Soon hewas able to change the tire. But hehad to get dirty and his hands hurt.As he was tightening up the lug nuts,she rolled down the window and beganto talk to him. She told him that shewas from St. Louis and was only justpassing through. She couldn't thankhim enough for coming to her aid.Bryan just smiled as he closed hertrunk. The lady asked how much sheowed him. Any amount would have beenall right with her. She alreadyimagined all the awful things thatcould have happened had he notstopped. Bryan never thought twiceabout being paid. This was not a jobto him. This was helping someone inneed, and God knows there were plenty,who had given him a hand in the past.He had lived his whole life that way,and it never occurred to him to actany other way.He told her that if she really wantedto pay him back, the next time she sawsomeone who needed help, she couldgive that person the assistance theyneeded, and Bryan added, "And think ofme."He waited until she started her carand drove off. It had been a cold anddepressing day, but he felt good as heheaded for home, disappearing into thetwilight.A few miles down the road the lady sawa small cafe. She went in to grab abite to eat, and take the chill offbefore she made the last leg of hertrip home. It was a dingy lookingrestaurant. Outside were two old gaspumps. The whole scene was unfamiliarto her. The waitress came over andbrought a clean towel to wipe her wethair. She had a sweet smile, one thateven being on her feet for the wholeday couldn't erase. The lady noticedthe waitress was nearly eight monthspregnant, but she never let the strainand aches change her attitude. The oldlady wondered how someone who had solittle could be so giving to astranger. Then she remembered Bryan .After the lady finished her meal, shepaid with a hundred dollar bill. Thewaitress quickly went to get changefor her hundred dollar bill, but theold lady had slipped right out thedoor. She was gone by the time thewaitress came back. The waitresswondered where the lady could be. Thenshe noticed something written on thenapkin.There were tears in her eyes when sheread what the lady wrote: "You don'towe me anything. I havebeen there too. Somebody once helpedme out, the way I'm helping you. Ifyou really want to pay me back, hereis what you do: Do not let this chainof love end with you."Under the napkin were four more $100bills.Well, there were tables to clear,sugar bowls to fill, and people toserve, but the waitress made itthrough another day. That night whenshe got home from work and climbedinto bed, she was thinking about themoney and what the lady had written.How could the lady have known how muchshe and her husband needed it? Withthe baby due next month, it was goingto be hard....She knew how worried her husband was,and as he lay sleeping next to her,she gave him a soft kiss and whisperedsoft and low, "Everything's going tobe all right. I love you, BryanAnderson."There is an old saying "What goesaround comes around." Good friends are like stars....Youdon't always see them, but you knowthey are always there.~GOD BLESS!~
