When I lose a game so badly that I am humiliated on the court, I thank my opponent for the free lesson. Failures are not endings; they are valuable opportunities to learn. It isn't over until the last point is scored. Many victories are snatched after one comes back from almost insurmountable odds. So it is with life. Work can be ...

... Every song is such a pleasure to hear. Each one is special. Each one is full of joy. Each one is full of love. Each one is full of life. All of them are blending together as well into one glorious song of thanks to God. Spring may look like sunshine and smell like flowers, but in my ears it will always sound like birdsong. My little singers are helping me to remember something very important as well. They are reminding me that I still have my own song to sing ...

... of my better angels whispering in my ear. I listened to the gentle voice telling my heart what to do, turned my car around, and gave that kind, old man a ride back down the road. I shook his hand, accepted his thanks, and headed home. The trip cost me 20 minutes of my time and maybe half a gallon of gas. The peace that filled my heart, though, was worth all the money in the world. I drove home singing along with the radio, wrapped in ...

... My kids close their eyes, spread their arms and fly with it, until they fall to the ground laughing. When I pray, I say thee and thou and grant me this, give me that. My kids say," Hi God !!! Thanks for my toys and my friends. Please keep the bad dreams away tonight. Sorry, I don't want to go to Heaven yet. I would miss my Mommy and Daddy" When I see a mud puddle, I step around it. I see muddy shoes and ...

... that did make my life happier, the things that brought lasting and permanent joy into my heart and soul couldn ’ t be bought in a store. They instead were found in the wide open arms of love. They were found in prayer, in thanking God everyday for my life, and in inviting His love into my soul. They were found in simple acts of kindness, freely shared, expecting nothing in return. They were found in gentle words of encouragement, big hugs of affection, and inspiring thoughts of goodness ...

... , when a certain piece of knowledge entered my brain. Slow to get there? Perhaps, but the knowledge was permanent. It was in the seventh grade that the teacher told me I gave up too easily, and would never amount to anything. Thanks Mr. McKenzie! But because of a supportive husband, who will never let me give up, I have been able to prove you wrong. My grade eight teacher flung my book across the floor, after reading one of my GOOD stories, telling me that I ...

... to do before the clock strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have. Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or. I can be thankful the grass is getting watered for free. Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or. I can be glad my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste. Today I can grumble about my health or. I ...

... . Cherish the moments of love you give and the moments of joy you share. Learn from your moments of pain and grow from your moments of failure. Most of all, though, take the time to pause for a moment right now and give thanks to God for your life and all the moments of happiness it has brought you. Life may be momentary but the love it gives you lasts forever.~Joseph J. Mazzella~[ by: Joseph J. Mazzella Copyright 2009 (joecool @wirefire.com)-submitted ...

... the Earth with its golden rays. Above, white clouds float in the brilliant blue sky. I hear a cardinal singing to his mate as he perches upon my back fence. And a bed of crocus open their purple heads to the heavens in joyful thankfulness. It's just another day. My small daughter bursts into the room, her giggle ringing through the house as she hugs my neck tightly. Her small hand fits into mine as she pulls me to the kitchen to show me the card she has made. A stick ...

... which is that most people are happy to help if they can. But there is another universal principle in play, which is, unless you are stranded on a deserted island, you are probably reluctant to ask for help-especially from a stranger. Thankfully, most of the time we are not coping with a mayday emergency. I recently learned that the word" mayday" has nothing to do with the month of May. Instead, it comes from the French word" m'aidez ," which means" help me" But ...

... us also did our best to live a life so beautiful that we made the world a better place just by being in it. Just think what it would be like if all of us started each day by remembering how much God loves us and by thanking Him for our lives. Just think what it would be like if we all took the time needed to fully love God, ourselves, and others. Just think what it would be like if each of us spent each and everyday sharing love, joy, goodness, ...

... a hundred groans in any market. The door of opportunity is so wide open that it's off its hinges.-Ernie Reb Stormy weather is what man needs from time to time to remind him he's not really in charge of anything-Bill Vaughn A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
