Life is a Gift.

Life Is a Gift.

Today before you say an unkind word, think of someone who can't speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food, think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife, think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion. Before you complain about life, think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before you complain about your children, think of someone who desires children, but they are barren. Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep, think of the people who are living in the streets. And when you are tired and complain about your job, think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job. Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another, remember that not one of us is without sin

Dang it! I hate it when you can convict me from afar.
