so i’ve been living in an apartment with a really sucky landlord. lately, i’ve been on a search for a better apartment, with a more responsible landlord. about two weeks ago i saw an ad on craigs list for a very quaint, yet updated space closer to downtown. it was reasonably priced- so i went down and took a look. when BJ and i got there, the owner showed us another space that was also available, but she hadn’t posted it. this space was much bigger than the first, had a washer and dryer, and a loft! i put in an offer for the 2nd condo but didn’t hear back from the owner before the anticipated deadline. well- much to my surprise i received an email from her today saying that she wants me to rent her space. God is so good… i hardly deserve his grace.
People are often unreasonable, illogical, 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 false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;Build anyway.If you find serenity and happiness, They may be jealous;Be happy anyway.The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;Do good anyway.Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;It was never between you and them anyway.
I’ve posted this before but it’s always worth a repost.
are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and make it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return empty, but accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
