Hello world, no matter the outcome of your day always remember you have a GOD that is bigger than any of troubles or worries of your heart so hand it over to Him and be at rest.
Here is my thought for today The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything. Hmm! That is the philosophy of life if you want to be happy. I remember a story of a group of friends that i read from a book sometimes ago.
This Group of friends, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and assortment of cups ” porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite ” telling them to help themselves to the coffee.
When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups”..And then began envying each other”s cups.
Now consider this: “Life is the COFFEE; the jobs, money and position in the society are the CUPS. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us”. God brews the coffee, not the cups.
Once again The happiest people don”t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
I remain your humble friend,

You are complete and still complaining… A beg you don’t have cogent excuse if you fail in life.
DO SOMETHING WORTHWHILE WITH THE ABILITY GOD GIVE YOU FROM TODAY.
Once upon a time, a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant and he got it. The pay was really good and so was the work condition. For those reasons, the woodcutter was determined to do his best.
His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he supposed to work.
The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees.
“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Go on that way!”
Very motivated by the boss words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he could only bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he could only bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.
“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.
“When was the last time you sharpened your axe?” the boss asked.
“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees…”
Many people are like this woodcutter, they didn’t see sharpen their axe as important. Your axe is your mind and sharpen is to educate, don’t be too busy trying to achieve with your strength alone you to educate your mind on a regular basis to achieve greater success.
The woodcutter suffered, don’t suffer yourself. To educate means to have a training in order to rain in the future. Your life depend on this, as you can not perform above the level of knowledge you have access to, try your best to educate your mind and get formal education as well.
YOU NEED TO EDUCATE IN ORDER TO ERADICATE IGNORANCE OF THE FUTURE.
