    St. Mother Theresa's words to live by....

    Life is short. Regardless of your beliefs, try to take the high road. Always.

    People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
    If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
    If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
    What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
    If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
    Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
    In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

    So true those words hoops5-life is short & getting shorter by the day. I loved Mother Teresa's version. She not only talked the talk but walked the walk, truly a remarkable person.

    I have always liked her saying, "Give til it hurts, then give some more".

    This is one of my favorite quotes of hers-
    "We are all pencils in the hand of God."

    To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible

    @hoops5 I'm always looking for inspiration for my Sunday School class each week. I'll be using this, thanks for sharing.

    It has almost been a year since hoops5 posted the above just felt like it was time for a reminder
