In case you can't read this, it says:
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right,
Forget about the ones who don't,
And believe that everything happens for a reason,
If you get a chance, take it,
If it changes your life, let it,
Nobody said it would be easy,
They only promised it would be worth it.
I need to ask for prayer. I have severe vertigo and nausea and passing out and I can barely sit up or eat or drink anything. There is so much that needs to be done, shopping, banking, errands, preparing my husband's arrival, I really need to be able to function enough to even feel well enough to give someone else instructions if I can hire someone to help me do these things, but I'd rather do them myself. Thanks in advance.

After accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, always thank God for everything, even for things that you do not understand. This will create a condition of total surrender to the will of the Lord and you will be rewarded with a life of contentment and more blessings. Thanking God for all our blessings and even for unfortunate circumstances in our life means that we totally trust God to take care of all our needs. Even if we are in the midst of severe trials and fortuitous events, we must trust God that He will deliver us from all adversities the way He delivered Joseph, Daniel and Job from their seemingly insurmountable problems. In the end, God rewarded their complete trust and confidence in Him. A thankful person has peace of mind and is well loved by people because he appreciates even the smallest act of kindness done to him. Compare this to a person who is always complaining and is very negative in all his views in life. He is avoided like a plague by everybody. Being always thankful shows a character of humility and gratitude- traits that will surely endear a person to everybody he meets. He has a pleasant disposition and is ever patient and enduring in his relationship with others. Always thank others for even the littlest things we received from them. That is the secret for good interpersonal relationship. And thank God for everything He does for us. That is the secret to further open up God's storehouse of blessings.
