Life Is

I am posting a poem by Mother Teresa  (1910-1997).

Life is …

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it.

Now please stop by thank Charlotte and Ginger for their gracious hosting of Spiritual Sundays. Have a blessed week!

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, Colossians 3:23
