A Prayer

Thank You Lord for all the many blessings I have recieved. Thank You for all the Blessings My Family has received. Please continue to bless each and every one of us so that we may be more of a blessing to others. AMEN

Thats my favorite Prayer. I have said it hundreds of times and it means a lot to me. It says what I want it to say and it gives thanks even when times are not so good, because lets admit it, we dont always feel blessed.

But that last line brings every thing together.

So that we may be more of a blessing to others.

You see, I don't think we were put here to find true "happyness" , to achieve Nirvana, to become one with the universe. I think we were put here to learn and to grow and to help others to learn and to grow. All that other stuff will come later. If we learned and grew and helped others.

Each little bit of knowledge you gain. it's a blessing. Each bite of food you take, its a blessing. Each opportunity to help another, its a blessing. If you are secretly correcting the spelling in this blog, Well Bless your heart.

Now this is where my sense of humor seems to take over. Where I work I sometimes feel like I am surrounded by Idiots. Why did I wind up there? What did I do to deserve this? Well after giving it some thought , I could only come to one solution. Obviously those people need help and the Lord, in his infinite wisdom , sent me over here to help them...LOL.

Lead by example, even when no one is watching.

Even when you are surrounded by sadness and unhappiness it is possible to make yourself feel good. We have been blessed with the ability to chose. and we should always chose to feel good. It is important and it is contagious. So feel good and as Spock would say, "Live long and Prosper".
