Thought Provokers for Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014

Reflect upon your present blessings,
of which every man has many;
not on your past misfortunes,
of which all men have some.
 
Charles Dickens

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *
Blessings we enjoy daily,
and for the most of them, because they be so common,
men forget to pay their praises.
But let not us,
because it is a sacrifice so pleasing to him who still protects us,
and gives us flowers, and showers, and meat and content.

 Izaak Walton

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

The best things are nearest:
breath in your nostrils,
light in your eyes,
flowers at your feet,
duties at your hand,
the path of God just before you.
 
Robert Louis Stevenson

 Keep a grateful journal.  Every night, list five things that happened this day that you are grateful for.  What it will begin to do is change your perspective of your day and your life.  If you can learn to focus on what you have, you will always see that the universe is abundant; you will have more.  If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough.

Oprah Winfrey

 Blessed to us is the night,
for it reveals the stars.
