Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect.

Don’t be a “get-this-day-over-with” person. Open yourself up to the rich blessings that God pours onto you at every moment of life. Value yourself. Put a little garnish. Enjoy life! Have some style! Create ambience in your life! Be five-star! No, I’m not talking about luxury. I’m talking about enjoying life. About breathing with passion. Sing. Dance. Dream. Stop to smell the flowers. Listen to the birds and watch sunsets. Play like a child. Eat more ice cream. Embrace the people that you love. Take vacations often. Give more. Smile more. Worry less. Say “thank you” with all your heart. Have more fun. Don’t be ordinary. Because you’re not. You’re God’s child. Live with gusto!

"The grace of God means something like: here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you."
--Frederick Buechner

“Nothing has turned out as we expected! It never does. Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect. We take what we get and are thankful it’s no worse than it is.”
--'Gone With The Wind'
