Margaret Schaut

One more conservative viewpoint on the world at large.

Getting Through What’s Coming: Do It Anyway


Mother Theresa

Americans are in for the fight of their lives, and of course, our country demands that from us. As we’ve been told over and over again, freedom isn’t free.

Preparations for what is coming aren’t limited to food and water, weapons and survivalism. It will call us out to greater, better, stronger and more ethical than perhaps we’ve been in years.

Mother Theresa, dealing with the hopeless, found strength and fortitude in the following verses:

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

I would add:

The society around you may find you or your loved ones ‘useless eaters.’ Feed them anyway.

I couldn’t agree with Mother Theresa more, but sometimes it is hard to just keep on going? Lovely to see you back on board Margaret.
