1/31/14 Bad decisions always produce bad consequences. We think we'll be the exception and not the example. When we ignore the rules, we inevitably pay the price. Wisdom is learning from your own mistakes, but brilliance is learning from the mistakes of others When you do the right thing, the right thing happens. God works it all together for good!
1/30/14 No great success was achieved without failure. It is a necessary stepping stone to achieving any success. Failure is a teacher of lessons we need to learn through experience. It does not mean defeat, because we only fail when we stop trying. Success and failure are both equally important. Never quit. It is the courage to continue with enthusiasm that counts!
1/29/14 Don't let your fears and anger turn you cold. Fear can cause you to become afraid of life, people, even yourself. Open your heart to the people you meet, greet, and love. Warm up to life and soak in the loving energy around you. Think and act with love. Give and you receive it back tenfold!
1/28/14 There is never a hopeless situation. Through pain and struggle comes strength and opportunity for growth. What appears at first to be an unsolvable problem turns into an exhilarating challenge. Let God give you what the world cannot. See the invisible bridges where there once was a dead-end!
1/27/14 Helen Keller said that life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. Happiness is your birthright. Letting go of old beliefs, ideas, and people means coming to the realization that these things are part of your past, not part of your destiny. Move on, and let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness. God has a special purpose for you!
1/26/14 Someday everything will make perfect sense. Why not laugh at the confusion and remind yourself that everything happens for a reason. God can bring you a downpour of blessings or make it rain without a cloud. You may be at a crossroad and view it as the end, but God has a bigger picture for your life. Trust and relax, it is only a bend in the road. God is faithful!
1/25/14 Compassion has no limit, and kindness has no enemy. You can never be too kind or too fair. Everyone is carrying some burden. Express kindness and compassion to those you meet. This alleviates their struggle as well as you own. Never judge or criticize anyone else's walk by understanding that their disappointment could someday be your own. Everyone desires peace of mind and love!
1/24/14 The word regret takes on a different meaning as we age. We see that certain mistakes did affect our lives, and some bad decisions can't be reversed. We have only a short time here physically yet our spirits live on. As children of God, we are redeemable and forgiven. Realize that every mistake was only a teachable lesson in the life class.
1/23/14 God's love will always find a way to express itself. Love is everywhere, but if we are not open to receive it, we miss out. Sometimes it can come wrapped in a different package than we thought. A struggle we thought was a disaster turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Never doubt the power of God's grace and love.
1/22/14 Don't look to tomorrow for your happiness today Joy can only be found one place at a time; right here, right now! Regardless of where you are going tomorrow, enjoy the rewards of today. Any experience can be joyful if you are good at the art of positive living through prayer and recognizing God's amazing love for you.
