Thoughts for today, and everyday....

Today, all I have to share with you are some words and wisdom from Mother Teresa. Please read, marinate in it and let it absorb into your soul.

People are often unreasonable, illogical,and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

NEVER between us and them! Love that last line! Definitely born of the Bible telling us we are not to conform to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds!
