One of my favorite quotes


  • Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.
  • Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
  • Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I’am alive.
  • Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
  • Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
  • Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.
  • Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.
  • I can complain because I have to go to school or I can eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
  • Today I murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord had provided shelter for my mind, body, and soul.
  • Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped
  • And here I’am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping
  • What today will be like is up to me
