Good Morning !! "This is the day the Lord has made, I shall rejoice and be glad in it".
Just as the example in Bob Bly's article below states..you have to take action in order to create a
good (lucky) outcome.
My "luck" is being able to rise every morning and thank God for another beautiful day.
Even if it's raining..(the sun is shining somewhere)..I rejoice and fill my day with activities
with or without
friends or family. I enjoy playing games with others, even though my
skills are not the best. I enjoy the company and the competition, it keeps me on my toes!
Another "lucky" thing
I'm grateful for... this morning
I met a group of friends from the apartment at the Cracker Barrell for breakfast.
Lots of good conversation and delicious food.
I'm especially "lucky" and grateful for my family. The last week or so I really felt 'needed'
again. (Very important for us older folks)
My daughter's knee surgery went well, but she did need
transportation to her
Physical therapy a couple of times lately..also my Granddaughter needed a ride
to pick up her car that was in repair, so I had a good time with her and my great-grandson
Now that may not seem like anything special..but, I don't get to spend as much time with
them as I'd like.
Our young people lives are much too busy. This generation is moving at a very fast pace.
When an opportunity comes along I am happy to help and be with them.
So I feel
life is what you make it..not luck, but the attitude we have about
our circumstances..and we make our own circumstances...don't we...
Maybe God is trying to tell us something when we are questioning our life situation.
Slow down, "Be still and hear the voice of God".
Bly's article about Luck !
Morrie was an unhappy man because he always had money problems
-- which he blamed either on bad luck, bad timing, or the Lord.
he heard about some lucky guy winning the lottery, for
instance, it made him miserable.
One day he was angrily cursing his bad luck and money woes.
"God," Morrie moaned, "Why can't
you let me win the
lottery just once?"
Suddenly a voice boomed down from the heavens and said:
"MORRIE, MEET ME HALFWAY -- BUY A TICKET!"
Some of my readers
are a bit like Morrie.
They want to be rich -- but, perhaps out of fear or risk
avoidance, they never take even the first step that could lead to
more money and a better life for them.
If that describes you, my advice this week is: BUY A TICKET.
Buying a ticket, of course, does not guarantee you'll be a winner.
But NOT making the effort guarantees failure. Right?
