The Present…

The Present…

 Nothing happens by accident…

If one day when you wake up, you would find on your bed a beautifully wrapped present with delicate bows, you would open it before even washing your face, curious about what is inside….

Maybe what you find is something you do not like very much…then you would put away the box wondering what to do with the present…

But, if the next day you find another present, you would open it also and, if this time you find something inside that you like very much….

A memory from someone that is far away….a beautiful clothing you saw on a window shop…the keys to a new car….a beautiful winter coat…or just a beautiful flower from somebody that remembered you…..

This happens every day, but we do not realize it…

Every day when we wake up, it is there, before us, a present sent to us by Allah….a whole day to use in the best possible way

Sometimes it comes with problems, issues that we do not seem to be able to solve.  Sometimes it comes with sadness, deception, even tears…

But other times it comes full of surprises, happiness, success and achievements……

What is important is that every day we receive a present, wrapped especially for us while we sleep: THE NEXT DAY.

 We are presented this box with coloured bows, no matter what the day brings……..

That day when we wake up every morning is a PRESENT…..

The present that life gives us.

It is not always what we wish or what we hope for……

But it is the best for us, what we need most, what we have to learn…..what we need to grow…

Open your PRESENT every day, giving thanks first to the Creator that gave it to you, without thinking what is inside the box.

If today you do not receive the present you wanted, wait for the next one….and appreciate what you received today

Tomorrow… Open your present with love and enthusiasm, because one day your dreams and the life plan for you will come inside the box, beautifully wrapped for you…

Life does not care about what we want….just about what we need…..

And that is good.

May you have a day full of blessings, in which you can feel the loving presence of your Creator, and may the present of every day bring you peace, spiritual growth, and enlighten on all we still have to learn about every day, and the plan life has for us, every day….
