Ten Commandments

While searching online I found the Ten Commandments of Helen Steiner Rice. She is one of my favorite inspirational poets, but I had not heard of these before. I enjoyed them so much I wanted to share with you. Have a blessed day, everyone!


1. Thou shalt be happy


2. Thou shalt use thy talents to make others glad.


3. Thou shalt rise above defeat and trouble.


4. Thou shalt look upon each day as a new day.


5. Thou shalt always do thy best and leave the rest to God.


6. Thou shalt not waste thy time and energy in useless worry.


7. Thou shalt look only on the bright side of life.


8. Thou shalt not be afraid of tomorrow.


9. Thou shalt have a kind word and a kind deed for everyone.


10. Thou shalt say each morning -- I am a child of God and nothing can hurt me.

Thanks for this post! I needed it today. Go over to Sharon's (sharonsroses)post and read her entry today. God is just placing good things for me to read today, I am being blessed on a rather 'down' day.

I loved this! Thanks for sharing this with us Debbie!

I use to be such a negative person and I still have to work at being positive sometimes.

My aunt forwarded me a great email and I think I'll post it. It certainly relates to this.

What great commandments.

And I didn't tell you yet, but I love the pretty header picture. Makes me want to sit and blog outside.
