Little Things in Life

Too often we don't realize

what we have until it is gone;

Too often we wait too late to say

"I'm sorry - I was wrong"

Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones

we hold dearest to our hearts;

And we allow foolish things

to tear our lives apart

Far too many times we let

unimportant things into our minds;

And then it's usually too late

to see what made us blind

So be sure that you let people know

how much they mean to you;

Take that time to say the words

before your time is through

Be sure that you appreciate

everything you've got

And be thankful for the little things

in life that mean a lot

Live Each Moment

I may never see tomorrow,

there is no written guarantee.

And things that happened yesterday,

belong to history

I cannot predict the future,

I cannot change the past

I have just the present moment,

I must treat it as my last

I must use this moment wisely,

for it will soon pass away

And be lost to me forever,

as part of yesterday

I must exercise compassion,

help the fallen to their feet.

Be a friend unto the friendless,

make an empty life complete

The unkind things I do today,

may never be undone

And friendships that I fail to win,

may never more be won

I may not have another chance

on bended knee to pray

And thank God with humble heart,

for giving me this day

Redeem the Time

Life is full of choices and different voices

Choose the best and you will fret less.

Be careful how you lend your ears

This will make for more days with cheer.

Keep your Lord close and never roam

This will make for Peace in your home.

Don’t listen to lies, keep your eyes on Paradise

Unseen enemies speak words that are not true.

Keep your ears for Jesus and His Love for you.

Be mindful of things you cherish

Some things are destined to perish.

So make sure you balance them with heavenly things

And oh such pleasure and Joy they will bring.

Be not subdued by things untrue

Keep your heart full of Jesus and His Love for you.

And you will sing everyday along life’s way.

Scripture says to Redeem the Time.

Finish Every Day

Finish every day and be done with it.

You have done what you could.

Some blunders and absurdities

no doubt have crept in;

forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day;

begin it well and serenely

and with too high a spirit

to be cumbered with

your old nonsense.

This day is all that is

good and fair.

It is too dear,

with its hopes and invitations,

to waste a moment on yesterdays.

Learn To Be Happy

Happiness is a skill that can be learned. The essential factor whether or not

you will live a happy life is based less on external factors such as wealth, success and fame,

and more on your attitude toward life, toward yourself, toward other people,

and toward events and situations. Regardless of your attitudes in the past,

you have the ability to change and become a master of happiness.

Today is the best day to improve your skills. Either things will go exactly the way you want –

and then you can focus on the feeling of joy.

Or things will not go the way you want and you'll have the opportunity

to attain greater mastery over your attitude.

Throughout the day, keep asking yourself:

"What attitude will enable me to experience joy and empowerment right now?"

I Believe

I believe every person has within themselves inexhaustible reserves of potential they have never even come close to realizing.

I believe each person has far more intelligence than they have ever used.

I believe each person is more creative than he or she has ever imagined.

I believe the greatest achievements of your life lie ahead of you.

I believe the happiest moments of your life are yet to come.

I believe the greatest successes you will ever attain are still waiting for you on the road ahead.

And, I believe through learning and application of what you learn, you can solve any problem, overcome any obstacle and achieve any goal that you can set for yourself.

Promise Yourself

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can

disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to

every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel like there is

something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your

optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best,

and expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others

as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to

greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give

every living person you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself

that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too big for worry, too noble for anger, and too

strong for fear, and too happy to permit the

presence of trouble.
