Mathew 5


Jesus said in Matthew 5, β€œYou are blessed when you’re at the end of your rope.

With less of you, there is more of God and His favor”.

We’re blessed when we’re at the end.

When you’ve run out of options, that’s when God shows up and gives you the best.

That’s when He does more than you can imagine!

Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts.

No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.

Silent gratitude isn’t very much to anyone.It is impossible to feel grateful and depressed in the same moment.

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.

At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.

Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of default.

The way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement.

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.

The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes.

It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day.

What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.

I remember crossing the road in Syndey long ago

By the grace of God, we hit head on

What a whack in the face Rod Stuart was

My heart goes into the rapid pace

Oh my goodness

Me on my backside


On the footpath

I started to have tears running down my face

That day I was a kid of fourteen who thought she knew everything

He pulled me up so graciously

Dusting me off with dirt down my legs

I died of shame that day and suddenly here I was nose to nose with my hero

My impression still shames me

My hero was my hight with skinny legs. At least my long hair hide my shame


I couldn’t string two words together

To shy to say ” sorry ”

He had a lovely smile

Stupid me blushing, voiceless

My Brother Diamond Harry pushed me aside like a sack of dirty potatoes

Getting himself in the spotlight

Needless to say Diamond accepted the two tickets to the nightclub where Rod Stewart performed that night


Yes he went in all his glory but not me because I was the runt of the litter

So close, so faraway from my fantasy performer

Thinking back maybe he wasn’t my first!

Saved from the filly stables!

What a blessing to be a virgin

Redeemed for another day when I married

And I was no party either

Gee, I’m happy to have been a teenager full of naivety

Rod Stewart will always be a hero in my mind

Wonderful memories

My Brother Diamond Harry R. I. P. Passed over to young. Always on my mind
