Spiritual & Inspirational Sunday February 14, 2010

Welcome to my Spiritual & Inspirational Sunday post. For over twenty-five years I have collected various spiritual and inspirational quotes and messages. My hope is that when you read these, you will pause and reflect. Perhaps you will share this post with a friend who just so happens to be in need of reading what I am sharing today.

Though a day late, I have chosen to share the contents of an email I recently received from a friend. Isn’t this a wonderful list of basic commands to follow! For me, this list is a great reminder to have faith.

BTW:  I wanted to share something exciting with you- that being that my cousin is the lone female astronaut on the International Space Station. Her name is Kay Hire. She was on the Space Shuttle Endeavor which was launched into space last Monday. You can go to and click on nasa tv and depending on the time of day you can watch the astronauts working. A very basic description of their mission is to take another “room” to the ISS and attach it. All of the space shuttles will be retired by the end of the year leaving only four more flights to go.   Blessings. …susan

                                You Shall
You shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

You shall not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

You shall not carry grudges, for they are the heaviest of all life's burdens.

You shall face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time anyway.

You shall not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor bedfellows.

You shall not borrow other people's problems. They can better care for them
than you.

You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone.

Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!

You shall be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own.

You shall not become "bogged down" by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.

You shall count your blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot
of small blessings add up to a big one.
