A local restaurant in my town had this beautiful life sized tomb on display….
I shared this poem in bible study today and felt led to share it with all of you too….this is something I play over and over in my head daily. My life changed since I first read this poem…I pray yours does too.
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
Everything I do is for God…from cooking, to cleaning, to loving people, to blogging…it is for my Savior, my Father, my Maker…His best for me is enough. His death on the cross is enough.
Thank you, Lord for what you did for us on the cross and for giving your spirit to be with us always.
Enjoy your week leading up to Good Friday and Easter! Love to you, Janelle
