Prayer,  Spiritual


There is an inspirational saying of Mother Teresa’s that I have hanging over my desk.  There are many days when I need to read it, contemplate it, and absorb it – and today is one.  It brings me a sense of peace and reminds me that I need to accept what comes my way with grace and keep my chin up as I forge ahead.  Enjoy.

People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

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

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
