what we make them is our own choice

008Sometimes I think we get so wrapped up in what we don’t have, what we think we want and how we believe things should be that we lose sight of the things we have been blessed with. It isn’t what you want or what you do not have that matters it is the things you have been blessed with that is important. If you neglect those you love or ignore the blessings you have you may wind up losing them all.

If you think there is greener grass somewhere else then you need to wake up and see your grass is only in need of some maintenance. No relationship be it in love, business or friendship will last if it’s neglected or if its taken for granted. Love needs to be nurtured in order for it to grow and for it to last. If we all paid more attention to that which we have been blessed with we would see we really don’t need anything else to be happy. If we can get beyond the illusions of the grass looking greener in the next yard we may notice our own lawns are what we made them and what we make them is our own choice. True it takes two to make a relationship to work but it takes one to make change and inspire change in the other. Someone has to make the first move and work hard to improve the relationship. Usually if one cares and shows it the other will follow if there was love there to begin with.

Don’t let the glitter, fancy lights and other distractions pull you away from and steal from you the blessings and gifts God has given you.
