    THE SCULPTOR'S ATTITUDE

    I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock
    strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am
    important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

    Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful
    that the grass is getting watered for free.

    Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that
    my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away
    from waste.

    Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

    Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was
    growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

    Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that
    thorns
    have roses.

    Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a
    quest to discover new relationships.

    Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy
    because I have a job to do.

    Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my
    mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

    Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can
    feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body
    and soul.

    Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the
    sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

    What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I
    will have!

    What will you choose to do with Today?
    Have a Great Day...unless you have other plans.

    Hi Danny,
    I really liked that one:) I'm thankful that God keeps helping me to make better choices each day. It's like building muscles...every time you make a good choice it gets easier the next time.
    Have a great day:)

    Here's something I received from a Christian site:

    Trust the past to the mercy of God
    The present to His love
    and the future to His providence

    May He Bless you all....
