"A man without ambition is dead. A man with ambition but no love is dead. A man with ambition and love for his blessings here on earth is ever so alive."--Pearl Bailey (1918 - 1990)
Though I like the first two sentences of this quote, it is the third that really resonates with me. The words "... and love for his blessings here on earth ..." are beautifully stated.
A few days ago, two friends and I had lunch and, in the course of our conversation, talked about the Lord's tender mercies. Those mercies or blessings are all around us ... if we but look.
Joy for today: having love for my blessings here on earth.
