Chapter 3, Page 19, Book 13
What we have here is Oreo cookies in some sort of festive package with neon colored filling. To motivate us all into thinking that spring is fun we can now eat cookies with a buzzing bee, a smiling sun, what appears to be a flower, a frog, and a bee landing on a flower with the text Happy Spring beside it.
The Blind Man
One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a sign by his feet, that read: I am blind, please help.
A creative publicist was walking by the blind man and stopped to observe that the man only had a few coins in his hat. He put a few of his own coins in the hat, and without stopping to ask for permission, took the sign, turned it around, and wrote a new message. He then placed the sign by the feet of the blind man, and left.
Later that afternoon the creative publicist returned by the blind man and noticed that his hat was almost completely full of bills and coins. The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was him who had changed his sign? He also wanted to know what the man wrote on it?
The publicist replied: I just changed your message so people could relate to it. He wished the man well, said goodbye, and went on his way.
The blind man didn't know it, but his new sign now read:
TODAY IS SPRING AND I CANNOT SEE IT
The Moral of the Story:
CHANGE YOUR STRATEGY WHEN THINGS AREN'T WORKING.
HAVE FAITH THAT YOUR CHANGE WILL BE FOR THE BEST.
WORD FOR TODAY:
expecting the best in this best of all possible worlds
Most things take on a whole new light when we are optimistic. Attitude is everything! Attitude influences the course of my life.
I choose to have a happy attitude today and every day and experience life to the fullest
I choose to be optimistic about the future. . My attitude is everything, for it helps me create a better reality for myself and others too.
If we throw away our hopes and dreams because the situation looks grim or change takes too long, we may miss out on those blessings coming our way
It's very easy to complain. It's easy to imagine that our sufferings, our struggles, are unlike any that others have experienced. It's harder to see, especially in the tough times, that God's blessings are still around.
We need to watch out for those blessings in store for us each day, especially when you are finding that hard to do. Tomorrow is the first official day of Spring here. It still feels very much like winter, but I'm optimistic it will soon feel like Spring too.
