  • You & God : again

    I posted this 4yrs ago and this being Easter I felt we could use it again

    You and God.....

    People are often unreasonable,
    irrational, and self-centered;
    Forgive them anyways.

    If you are kind, people may accuse
    you of selfish, ulterior motives;
    Be kind anyway.

    If you are successful, you 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 may 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.

    -Mother Teresa

    Thank you for this.
    It made my day and I think my blood pressure dropped again.
    I'll keep you in my prayers for a donor match.
    Happy Easter.
