As The Sun Sets

And as the sun sets,my mind wandersover the day past. Was I good enough,kind enough,loving and forgiving? What will the morrow bring?Continued sadness, or joy,hope or despair?The answer, residing ever,and always, in me. For, it is in faith I live,and in faith, hope,and in hope, peace. Yes, there may be sorrow,even anger and regret,but theyContinue reading “As The Sun Sets”

Change Requires Action

Nothing happens by itself, change requires action. When you want something to change you must be the one making the change. It should go without saying but the reality is this, you cannot change another person. The only thing you can change is the choices you make and the actions you take. If you areContinue reading “Change Requires Action”

Be Like A Mustard Seed

Be like a mustard seed my children, strong in faith, generous with love. Though the mighty seed may seem small and insignificant, in truth it is exceptional. From a small seed grows a big tree. A tree, that when nurtured, provides sustenance. This is a seed, that when fully developed, provides something that enhances otherContinue reading “Be Like A Mustard Seed”

Two Sides To Every Story

There are two sides to every story, so why do so many people forget that? Whether it is my version vs your version, or he said/she said, there is always more than one side to every story.

It is in the learning,the stretching of the mind;in the growing up,ourselves we start to find. Yet in the learning, there is a struggle,and sometimes failure, yes, it’s true;it’s how we handle each of these,that determines if we make it through. We expand our horizons,when we’re learning something new;and open many new doors,to help ourContinue reading “It Is In the Learning”

Keep Your Eyes Focused

When you are walking through life remember to keep your eyes focused. Set your eyes upon the path you are walking, living your authentic life. Sometimes, people gaze too much on the past that it inhibits their journey. If you are always looking back you miss the things happening right in front of you. YouContinue reading “Keep Your Eyes Focused”

What if is a Question We’ve All Asked

‘What if’ is a question we’ve all asked. The reality is that this is a question everyone asks themselves more than once throughout their lifetime. What if I had handled the conversation differently? Or, what if I just walked away, picked up the phone, or went to visit more often? The lists go on andContinue reading “What if is a Question We’ve All Asked”

Live Life With a Forward Motion

Don’t sit back and wait for things to come to you, live life with a forward motion. Your life won’t change while you’re sitting back, do nothing. You need to take the bull by the horns and take action. If you do nothing, change nothing, then nothing will change. You won’t grow, or progress, youContinue reading “Live Life With a Forward Motion”
