Weekend Morning Story - God is at work in our lives !

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect himself from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky.

The worst had happened - everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger.

"God, how could you do this to me?" he cried.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him.

"How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers.

"We saw your smoke signal", they replied.

It's easy to get discouraged sometimes when things appear to be going badly. But we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering.

Beautiful Morning Thoughts !

Do not complain about others. 
Change yourself if you want peace. 
It is easier to protect our feet with shoes than to carpet the earth.

Slow down and enjoy life. 
It is not only the scenery you miss by going fast 
but you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

Luck is not in your hands. 
But work is in your hands. 
Your works can make your luck 
but luck can not make your works. 
So always trust yourself.

Everything in life has a beautiful ending. 
And if it is not beautiful, then be sure, it is not the ending.

The truth may walk around naked, but the lie has to be clothed.

Refreshing Morning Poem !

Decide to be happy today, 
to live with whatis yours - 
your family, your business, your job.

If you can't have what you like, 
maybe you can like what you have.

Just for today, be kind, cheerful, agreeable, 
responsive, caring, and understanding. 
be your best, dress your best, talk softly, look 
for the bright side of things.

Praise people for what they do and 
don't criticize them for what they cannot do.

If someone does something stupid, forgive and forget.
After all, it's just for one day.
Who knows, it might turn out to be a good day!
