Thought provoking!

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.
He asked her,'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.
Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'
This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.
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's crying out to GOD for a companion.
Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.

Looking back over the last year, it is hard to believe all that God has accomplished in our lives. I can't believe our precious son will be one tomorrow! It seems just like yesterday we got a call that we had been "chosen". In only a matter of 3 days, we were in the delivery room, watching our beautiful son be born. God is soooo good! This has been a year of firsts for us... Trying to sell a house for the first time, sending our 4 yr. old to school for the first time, watching the baby smile, speak, walk, etc... for the first time,going through (AND BEATING) cancer with a parent for the first (and hopefully only) time. I'm reminded often to cherish the moment! How precious our two sons are, I so enjoy watching all they accomplish day after day. My greatest joy is truly that my children grow up loving and fearing God, being great men of God, teaching others how to be the same, loving each other, and their families, and did I mention LOVING THEIR MOMMY?! Every time one of them smiles and says "I love you mom" I just get chills... Does God really love me that much to grant me this much joy? He must, cause I assure you I am the world's happiest wife and mother!! I reflect on the joys and heartaches my husband and I have shared. I thank God for each and every one of them, cause they've brought us so close and we share a bond that no one can break! In the uncertain economic times we are experiencing, I am glad one thing is certain... God's love for us, that He will always take care of us, and that we can depend on HIM! I pray we never lose sight of that!

*Walk with your eyes open, live a life examined; abide in Christ so that you can see with the eyes of Christ all the chances you have to change the world one obedient opportunity at a time.
