my life ..

is not a race to be won, but a journey to be enjoyed

so i decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. then i realized that this pleasure is from the hand of GOD
ecclesiastes 2:24  (nlt)

how many people do you know zealously work for retirement, but never take the time to enjoy themselves along the way? finally, that fateful day arrives when they retire, but sixty days later, they curiously die from the stress of overworking all their lives. enjoy every moment of every day, no matter what season of life you’re in right now. if you can’t afford the luxuries of culture, be content knowing this is the worst off you will ever be. focus on what you do have, and thank GOD for all HS wonderful blessings

also, be careful not to always look so far into the future that you view your present disdainfully. don’t hate where you are right now just because you would rather be somewhere else. the mind always searches for what it does not possess. the child who has all the latest toys still wants the one another child has! the young valet parking attendant dreams about one day having the car of the wealthy business owner who frequents the restaurant. but that same business owner yearns to make more money this year than he did last year. there is an endless search for achievement, but true fulfillment is only attained through visualizing life as a journey that is to be enjoyed, rather than an arduous race to be won

following his victorious campaign in which the old city of jerusalem was returned to the nation of israel, moshe dayan became israel’s prime minister, having enjoyed each one of his distinct leadership roles, no matter where those roles took him. in life, enjoy where you are at the present moment, but don’t set up camp there

daily confession
FATHER, i thank you that i enjoy the fruit of my labor and i live for YOU and experience the fullness of the abundant life YOU give me
