Life is still beautiful!


I believe this…
…a person is lifted up by humbling himself,
 not by exalting himself in the eyes of others.
…strength is found through weakness,
not by being confident in your own abilities.
…fullness comes by becoming empty,
 not by running after pleasure.
…life is gained by losing it,
 not by looking out for number one.
…riches come by giving them away,
 not by storing them up.
…greatness comes by becoming a servant,
 not by seeking power and celebrity.

    Yes, I agree with you completely here…life can seem an irony in that losing it all can actually bring you everything yet everybody seeks to have more, more, more. God bless you my friend.
