I'm an ordinary person
In the walk of life I chose
To love all others as myself
'Cause behind each thorn is a rose
I don't place a lot of value
On the material things we gain
I would rather have God's rainbow
And His sunshine after rain
If and when I have some doubts
About the path I chose
I look at what God gives us
In this ordinary Rose
God Bless You......

Hi a friend sent me a poem
from your site and I loved it.
I came across a piece that my husband cut out
of the paper years ago. I think he tried
to live by it . He passed away nov. 24th 1997
at the age of 45.

1. Keep skid chains on your tongue.
Always say less than you think.
Cultivate a low, persuasive voice .
How you say it often counts more
than what you say.

2. Make promises sparingly
and keep them faithfully ,
no matter what the cost.

3. Never let an opportunity pass to say a
kind and encouraging word to
or about somebody .Praise good work ,
regardless of who did it.

4.Be interested in others: their pursuits,
their work, their home and their families.
Make merry with those who rejoice, with those who
weep,mourn, Let everyone you meet,
however humble, feel that you regard
him as a person of importance.

5. Be cheerful. Don't burden or depress those
around you by dwelling on
your aches or pains and
small disappointments.
Remember, everyone is
carrying some kind of burden .

6. Keep an open mind. Discuss but don't argue.
It is a mark of a superior mind to be able to
disagree without being disagreeable.

7. Let your virtues, if you have any,
speak for themselves. Refuse to
talk about the vises of others.
Discourage gossip.
It is a waste of valuable time and
can be destructive and hurtful.

8. Take into consideration the feelings of others.
Wit and humor at the
expense of another is never worth
the pain that may be inflicted.

9. Pay no attention to ill-fated remarks about you.
Remember the person
who carried the message may not be the
most accurate reporter in the world .
Simply live that nobody will believe him.
Disordered nerves and
bad digestion are a common cause of back-biting.

10. Don't be anxious about the credit due you.
Do your best and be
patient. Forget about yourself and
let others "remember."
Success is much sweeter that way.

again use this in your site
if you want. bye for now. thanks again for
the inspiration
