I will look upon all things with love

Post by Livingstone Ochieng » 15 Apr 2019, 08:26

Henceforth, I will look upon all things with love:
I will love the sun for it warms my bones,
yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.

I will love the light for it shows me the way,
yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.

I will welcome happiness because it enlarges my heart,
yet I will endure sadness because it opens my soul.

I will acknowledge rewards because they are my due,
yet I will welcome obstacles because they are my challenge.
-Augustine Mandino

Thank you, very refreshing!!!!
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Peter 3:9 :angelic-grayflying:

Simple, but beautifully written. Seeing the stars on a clear still night is my favorite :) Thank you!
