Pass this on is so neat ! Will make you think!


Saturday, April 26, 2014

This was sent to me today and I thought to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

~There was a blind girl who hates herself because she was blind. She hated everyone except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, " If I could see the world, I'd marry you". One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, " Now that you can see the world, will you ......marry me?" The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at him for the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying; " Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine." This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what our life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who cant speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before you complain about your children - Think of someone who desires children but they are barren. Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets. Before whining about the distance you drive - Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job. But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another - Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive. Please copy, paste, and pass this on. I have a feeling it will bless someone else who needs to be refocused just as it did me

Love Betty

    Thank you so much for this blog!! The first story was such a shock, I actually gasped when I read what the boyfriend said. To carry the analogy further. Jesus gave His own life that we might live. Thank you for reminding us to be thankful for what we have and to be generous with others.

    We often miss the generosity around us when too focused on our own miseries. How much better to look for love! Great story!

    We often take things for granted. Although I think I'm a decent person, I sometimes look back and cringe at things I've overlooked.
