Thoughtful Thursday



 
It is better to have eyes for beauty – than for blemish.

It is better to be able to see the rose – than the thorns.

It is better to have learned to look for things to commend in others – than condemn.

Of course other people have faults – and we are not blind.

But then we have faults of our own – and this should make us charitable.

~ JR Miller
