The following post on my facebook wall is a must for sharing as it remains true at all times.
SOMEONE HAS WRITTEN THESE 10 BEAUTIFUL LINES. READ AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE DEEPER MEANING OF THEM.
1). PRAYER is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “STEER-ING WHEEL” that direct the right path throughout life.
2). Why is a CAR’S WIND-SHIELD so large & the REAR VIEW MIRROR so small? Because our past is not as IMPORTANT as OUR FUTURE. So, LOOK AHEAD and MOVE ON.
3). FRIENDSHIP is like a BOOK. It takes a FEW SEC-ONDS to BURN, but it TAKES YEARS to WRITE.
4). All THINGS in LIFE are TEMPORARY. If they are GOING WELL, ENJOY them, they WILL NOT LAST FOR-EVER. If they are going wrong, don’t WORRY, THEY CAN’T LAST LONG EITHER.
5). OLD FRIENDS are GOLD! NEW friends are DIAMONDS! If you GET a DIAMOND, DON’T FORGET the GOLD! To HOLD a DIAMOND, you ALWAYS NEED a BASE of GOLD!
6). Often when WE LOSE HOPE and THINK this is the END, GOD SMILES from ABOVE and SAYS, “RELAX, SWEETHEART; it’s JUST a BEND, NOT THE END!”
7). When GOD SOLVES your PROBLEMS, you HAVE FAITH in HIS ABILITIES; when GOD DOESN’T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS, HE has FAITH in YOUR ABILITIES.
8). A BLIND PERSON asked GOD: “CAN THERE be ANYTHING WORSE THAN LOSING EYE SIGHT?” HE REPLIED: “YES, LOSING YOUR VISION!”
9). When YOU PRAY for OTHERS, GOD LISTEN to YOU and BLESSES THEM, and SOMETIMES, when you are SAFE and HAPPY, RE-MEMBER that SOMEONE has PRAYED for YOU.
10). WORRYING does NOT TAKE AWAY TOMORROW’S TROUBLES; IT TAKES AWAY today’s PEACE.
