'I don't know what God's will is for me'. I've said it a million times... I've heard it said a million times & I've finally found the answer. We have free will, but if we didn't... if God could force us do what He wanted us to do... He would have us love each other. He doesn't care where I work as long as I love my co-workers. He doesn't care where I live as long as I love my neighbor. The goal for today, if I'm confused about God's will, I will find someone to give love to! Have a great day everybody!
There is a fine line between greed & ambition. I want more out of life... does that make me greedy? I guess that depends on what 'more' means to me. I don't want or need more 'things'... I'm not looking for material satisfactions, but I don't believe that we should ever stop wanting more peace & happiness & usefulness. The goal for today, be more ambitious... because there is no such thing as too much inner peace! Have a great day everybody!
I was unhappy, so I did what everybody said to do... I changed people, places & things. I moved, found a new job, new friends & a new girlfriend. Now life was going to be wonderful... a fresh start. But it wasn't! I spent the next 5 years just as unhappy as before. What went wrong?? I got a new job, but still had a fear of running out of money... I found new friends, but still had a fear of not fitting in... I found a new girl, but still had a fear of being alone. The goal for today, change myself, from the inside, out... overcoming fear is the key to happiness! Have a great day everybody!
"If trouble comes we cheerfully capitalize it as an opportunity to demonstrate His omnipotence" ~Anon. If I have a problem today, I'm not going to hang my head & say why me... I'm going to find the solution & put it into practice. I'm going to prove to myself & the people around me, that any problem can be overcome. The goal for today, don't get trapped beneath my problems... cheerfully rise above them & be Free! Have a great day everybody!
"I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country" ~Nathan Hale. As I stare down row after row of white crosses marking the graves of our fallen heroes, it is impossible to keep the tears from welling up in my eyes. My heart breaks, but at the same time, it swells with the glorious notion that so many Americans were willing to lay down THEIR lives to preserve OUR Freedom! At the end of the movie Saving Private Ryan, Tom Hanks whispered 2 words with his dying breath... "EARN THIS" & that's my goal for today & every day... Earn their sacrifice! Happy Memorial Day! God Bless America!
I have finally found out what life is really about! I 'thought' I wanted money, women, power & fame... but now I know better. The one & only thing that I truly want & need, is to love, help & be a positive part of the lives of the people around me! All that material stuff will take care of itself & I will always have what I 'need' so long as your needs are my #1 priority. The goal for today, remember that life is not about how much I 'have'... it's about how much I give! Love & Service! Have a great day everybody!
"For good nurture and education implant good constitutions" ~Plato. As a parent I should be selfless, honest, pure & loving. As an educator (we are all educators in one form or other) I should teach others to be selfless, honest, pure & loving. If we follow this model we can have a world full of people who's constitution is good. The goal for today, learn, practice & teach the principles that ultimate in good constitution! Have a great day everybody!
"Live dangerously and you live right" ~JWVG. True Freedom isn't always the safest way of life, but it is definitely the right way to live! Yes, we are allowed to carry guns & smoke & drink & do all sorts of things that could potentially be dangerous... "But as for me... give me Liberty or give me death" ~Patrick Henry. I am not... & will never be, willing to give up my Freedom in exchange for safety! The goal for today, Freedom! Have a great day everybody!
"Be as you wish to seem" ~Socrates. If I want to be viewed a certain way... I will act a certain way. If I want to be respected... I will earn that respect through my actions! If I want to be viewed as honest... I will tell the Truth! If I want to be viewed as selfless... I will give freely of myself to others! If I want to be viewed as loving & caring... I will give love & kindness! The goal for today, remember that being a good person is the best & easiest way to be viewed as a good person! Have a great day everybody!
Question: If God is All, and He brings nothing but good, then what/who causes these natural disasters that take so many lives? Answer: 1st - God is all 'GOOD'... bad comes from man. 2nd - Natural disasters are a direct result of man abusing nature & forcing her to defend herself. 3rd - Natural disasters are only bad for humans... they are good for the planet & if the planet didn't defend itself from us by destroying us every once in a while... we would destroy it & then there could never be life here again... it would be the end of all life on Earth. It hurts my heart too but the more I begin to understand all this stuff, the more I realize that those people who have…
