If you wish to be respected, then be ever respectful.

If you wish to be understood, then sincerely understand others.


If you wish to be appreciated, then be ever grateful.

If you wish to be loved, then give love in each moment.



If you wish to be wealthy, then act to create real value.

If you wish to learn, then take time to teach.

If you wish to climb higher, then life others up.

If you wish to be wise, then share what you know.

Whatever you wish, life will surely give it.

What you must do, though, is to truly live it.

There is so much to live for and so much to see.

You will have whatever you are willing to be.

O God, early in the morning I cry to you.

Help me to pray

And to concentrate my thoughts on you

I cannot do this alone.

In me there is darkness,

But with you there is light

I am lonely, but you do not leave me

I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help

I am restless, but with you there is peace.

In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience

I do not understand your ways,

But you know the way for me…

Restore me to liberty,

And enable me to live now

That I may answer before you and before me.

Lord, whatever this day may bring,

Your name be praised.

 

Amen

Thank You for all that I have

all that I am, and all that

I may one day become.

 

I know this is possible because

of the opportunities You gave me,

the teachers You sent my way.

 

Please help me give back to the world,

by being the glowing example

that You mean for me to be

each and every day.

 

In my actions, my words, and my love

may others see You shining through me.

 

Amen

We are blessed with so many things. We really count them all, but it doesn’t matter whether it may be small or big. With our lives, with the air that we do use in breathing to this world and with many things that we have have. We are blessed for the food that we eat everyday, for the water we drink.

We are blessed with our families who loves us so much and with the people who cares for us. Just be grateful for all of them.

Thank you God for many blessings and graces. Thanks you for the gifts, for the family , friends, and many blessed people around me. Thank you for all I have, and for all I am.

Count Your Blessings

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;

Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes;

Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears;

Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full years instead of your lean;

Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth;

Love your neighbor as much as yourself.

Look to this day

For it is life, the very life of life

In its brief course

Lie all the verities and realities of your existence

The bliss of growth

The glory of action

The splendor of achievement

For yesterday is but a dream,

And tomorrow is only a vision

But today, well lived, makes every yesterday

a dream of happiness,

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Thanksgiving is the holiday of peace, the celebration of work and the simple life… a true folk-festival that speaks the poetry of the turn of the seasons, the beauty of seedtime and harvest, the ripe product of the year – and the deep, deep connection of all these things with God.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,but to live by them.

~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Remember God’s bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!

 ~Henry Ward Beecher

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.

 ~H.U. Westermayer

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.

~Meister Eckhart

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.

~E.P. Powell

So once in every year we throng

Upon a day apart,

To praise the Lord with feast and song

In thankfulness of heart.

~Arthur Guiterman
