"Don't let your worries get the best of you, remember Moses started out as a basket case."

"Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on the front door forever."

"God himself doesn't propose to judge a man until he is dead, so why should you."

"Peace starts with a smile."

"Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous."

"God doesn't call the qualified, he qualifies the called."

"God promises a safe landing, not a safe passage."

"The will of God never takes you where the grace of God will not protect you."

"Prayer; Don't give God instructions, just report for duty."

"The task ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us."

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

Be Grateful for..

"...The teenager who is complaining about doing the dishes, because it means she is at home and not out on the streets."

"...The taxes i pay because it means i have a job."

"...The clothes that fit too snug because it means I have enough food to eat."

"...My shadow that watches me work because it means i am out in the sunshine."

"...The lawn that needs mowing, the windows that need cleaning and the gutters that need fixing, because it means i have a home."

"... All the complaining about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech."

"...The parking spot i find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means i am capable of walking, and i have a car."

"...My huge heating bill, because it means that i am warm."

"...The pile of laundry to wash and fold, because it means i have clothes."

"...The weary and achy muscles at the end of the day, because it means i was capable of working hard."

"...The alarm that goes off early in the morning, because it means that i am alive."
