Thankful

Today I am thankful to God for giving me the strength to forgive myself so that I can forgive others. Forgiveness is a difficult thing but I was blessed to have a good friend guided by God to help me.

Easy being bad

Vengeance

Vengeance is the way of the fool that doesn't realize that by not seeking revenge they have already won!

Assume

Today I am going to assume that in none of my encounters with any person that they are trying to take advantage of me.

"Why's everybody want to be somebody when they already have a body? All it takes for you to be somebody is that you have a body. All it takes for you to be someone is that you live under the sun. That's all it takes, for you to be. That's all it takes for you to be somebody. Even the people that you think are somebody, just remember that they have a body just like your body." - Sean Jordan

Mean something

Our prayers must mean something to us if they are to mean anything to God. Do not make prayer a monologue, make it a conversation.

Get to know them

I wonder how insecure, guilt ridden and scared some people must be to go to such great lengths to ostracize and portray a very nice, well mannered, polite and respectful man as something he's not. Why do some people not question what is clearly an untruth in front of them simply because a friend or family member says it's so? The only way to truly know someone is to get to know that person.

My mantra

My mantra is Philippians 4:11-13 - I am not saying this because I am in need for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation whether well fed or hungry whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through God who gives me strength.

Best requisite

Change

Snowflakes in the Desert

We used to share everything from a diamond to a rose,
and when somebody asked you, the love for me it showed.
Now that I feel the loss of you, I don’t have much of a clue,
My world is telling me all the wrong things to do.
I feel so confused, but you see something other than my words,
I float through a shiny window through a tapestry of birds.
If I knew, my life would be merry, I’d be so complete today,
But in this world I’m used to, the answer is the wrong thing to say.
My world is a desert with heat that never goes away,
I wake up to voices that blow my haze astray.
Did you know, your hair is like rain drops, your eyes can see right into my soul,
My soul is like a bed of flowers, but all you envision is musty coal.
We used to dream, so it seemed, about all the things we would try,
It seemed the only thing that we’d do right together was cry.
Then you walked, and you talked, so normal and routine, the sky got so cloudy, the wind came from nowhere, I remember a wondrous scene.…
