Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present."

Something to strive for....

This was a post from another blog...I find it very inspiring!! Just a family trying to be faithful to the One who called us... People often ask me what I teach my children....so this is it in a nut shell.. Self-preoccupation, self-broodings, self-interest, self love-these are the reasons we jar each other.(make each other mad)Turn your eyes off yourself; look up and out! They are your brothers and sisters;they have needs that you can aid. Listen for their confidences;keep your heart wide open to their calls,and your hands alert for their service.Learn to give and not to take; to drown your own hungry wants in thehappiness of lending yourself to fulfill the interests of those nearest or dearest.Look up and out, from this narrow, cabined self of yours.....you will find to your own glad surprise the secret of the meekness and gentleness of Jesus, and the fruits of he Spirit will all bud and blossom from out of your life..
