The Devil And The Duck

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm..
He was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods.
He practiced in the woods; but he could never hit the target.
Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for dinner.
As he was walking back he saw Grandma's pet duck.

Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved!

In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his Sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing.

After lunch the next day Grandma said, 'Sally, let's wash the dishes'
But Sally said, 'Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen.'
Then she whispered to him, "Remember the duck?'
So Johnny did the dishes.

Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, 'I'm sorry but I need Sally to help make supper.'
Sally just smiled and said, 'well that's all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help?
She whispered again, 'Remember the duck?' So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to help.

After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally's; he finally couldn't stand it any longer.
He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.
Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, 'Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of you.'

Thought for the day and every day thereafter:

Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done... And the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.)...whatever it is...You need to know that:
God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing.

He has seen your whole life... He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven. He's just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.

The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness; He not only forgives you, but He forgets.

It is by God's grace and mercy that we are saved.

Thank You Lord

I want to thank You for what You have already done.
I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards; I am thanking You right now.
I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better; until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me;until the pain in my body disappears; until my financial situation improves; until the children are asleep and the house is quiet; until I get promoted at work or until I get the job; I am going to thank You right now.
I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief;
I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed; I am thanking You right now.
I am thanking You because I am alive. I am thanking You because I made it through the day's difficulties. I am thanking You because I have walked around the obstacles.
I am thanking You because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more and do

I'm thanking You because FATHER, YOU haven't given up on me.

God is just so good, and He is so good all the time..

Not Much Happy Thoughts

Excuse this blog for it's straying from it's original theme, a place where I post all my happy thoughts. A place where I share inspiring things and everything that is positive and encouraging.
I am in the dumps lately and I am very much distracted/disoriented and not myself lately.

I've been misplacing so many things and I don't have the will and patience to look for them. Our house is a huge mess because I am not the me I used to be.

Yeah sure I attend happy events and get so many nice stuff out of them, win a lot of contest and stuff. But all of them are too temporary and shallow. I guess I should change my perspective and stop over reacting, over analyzing and stop being a smart ass that I am sometimes and just be simple and uncomplicated.

I need to get away from me, my head and my environment, even for a brief time. I think I'm all burnt out. I feel so empty.

Say It Now

If you have something to say, say it now before the moment passes you by and you can no longer say it.

Life is fleeting. Tomorrow never comes. Today is all we have. What's said is said, what's done is done. There's no sense going over and over. This I know.

But the moment passed, I was not able to say what I wanted to say. Now, I just filled a suitcase full of regrets.

I wish I was a dumb person so I don't have to over analyze things. I wish I had a delete memory and feelings button. Everything will be easy.

Datach and ignore. A philosophy I have to learn.

I Need To Get Away

I had enough of sad I had no time to mourn. I need time alone. This is where I wanna go and this is what I want to do take one of those Caribbean vacations.

I heard that Breezers has a special all inclusive vacation package and that includes all meals, transfers, transportation and entertainment and everything I want that I could think of. All I need to do is bring myself to take a vacation alone. I heard Bahamas are great if you have company but how can I reflect if I have a company with me.

And maybe since its an all inclusive vacation I virtually need much to enjoy the place. They will do the rest to entertain me if I wanted to and not force me if I don't want to like a companion you'll take with you on this wonderful place.

But I think I'd just sulk in my room if I see honeymooners in there. That would suck much.

Lucky Messages

Nobody knows the future. But it's great to hear someone tell you something good. I'd rather hear good news than bad ones. I had enough of sad. I wanna be happy.

Life is so fleeting. People come and go. Today is all we have tomorrow never comes.

Stop over analyzing things. Things happens because they have to and they do. If it's bound to happen you can't stop it.
