It's A Wonderful Life

Have you not consider how wonderful it is to be alive? How thoroughly rewarding it is that we are loved by people that mattered most to us? Have we not appreciated that the sun shines after a stormy day or the light dawns after the darkness of the night? There are so many things we ought to be thankful for. Surely, we thrive in the fresh air we breathe. We hear the singing of the birds in the morning and the swaying of the leaves and grasses as the wind passes by. We are thrilled by the surging of the waves in the picturesque seashore. And have we not gotten the thrill of our lives by journeying to the imperial mountains that stand majestically amidst the clouds. The tiny creatures of the day and night show how wonderful it is to be alive. Have you seen the flying eagle as it soared ecstatically among the clouds, impervious of all the din down below? How we love to stroll by our favorite bay walk as seagulls come flying by? How we marvel at the majestic sun as it sets in its golden halo as the night slowly creeps in? And how we savor our favorite ice cream bar as we exchange pleasant stories in the moonlit night?

Ah, the earth is so peaceful as the light of the moon encompasses us all. And yes, have we not felt the presence of an Unknown Being who have made all of these things possible? How wonderful it is to be alive and cared for by an Almighty God who is so gracious in providing all of our needs. ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE.

instead of thinking of any negative things, instead of putting yourself into despair, you should be grateful everyday because the fact that God gave you another day to see the sun shine, is the biggest blessing you could ever have
thanks for sharing kua mel

Also, I think if we stop to feel gratitude with the things we take for granted ...we'd realize just what a wonderful life we really do have ...even though there are trials that come our way. I think there is always something good to appreciate. :)

Yup, life is wonderful.. All the problem and shortcomings are just part of life and that what makes life amazing. If life is always happiness, must be boring right no challenges. Sometimes, we forgot to thank how lucky we are to be able to experience life. Yes life is not fair at times, life sucks when huge problem hit us, life is boring when you keep doing the same thing all the time, life is a mysterious when you always seek answers to all your question, life is a miracle because you able to wake up in the morning and more . All these makes life wonderful. Like you said let's be thankful we are alive. Thanks for the post

Hi Arvin,
It is not only in the blessings alone that will make us realize that ours is a wonderful life but the visible manifestations of God's glory and grandeur. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

It really is a wonderful life Mel. And yes, I found pleasure by merely hearing the birds singing early in the morning. Praise be to God!
