We get in the habit of wearing disguises in front of others that we begin to appear disguised before ourselves.
10/31/13 You decide your habits and your habits decide your future. Our character is a blending of all our habits. Our habits are usually consistent and unconscious at times. Ultimately your character reaps a destiny. If you are not careful, you can become a slave to a constantly repeated act. Don’t let bad habits make you. Acknowledge and change them!
10/30/13 God longs to give you the desires of your heart. You need to stay filled with hope no matter how dire the circumstance. When you put your trust in God, you are in a place of security and strength. No matter how long you’ve been down, get up each day with a positive attitude. Nothing can steal your joy or enthusiasm! Stay open to receiving the blessings.
10/29/13 Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers. Most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself. There is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle before you. That something is superior to circumstance. God is your shield and strength; your treasure within.
10/28/13 Those who possess God-like character live humbly and share what they have rather than receive. By seeking to make others comfortable, you will sleep comfortably at night. Happiness cannot be bought, but it is a free gift to those who give their time to others. Joy is a priceless byproduct of living to serve.
10/27/13 Life is full of obstacle illusions. Make it worth your while and live in the present. Think of an obstacle as a stepping stone to build the life you desire. Fear and anger are your enemies while love and acceptance are your friends forever.
10/26/13 Fear is a physical reaction to perceived danger. God created this ability in you to respond quickly in danger. Your brain receives the warning and your body reacts quickly releasing adrenaline. Your muscles and heart rate increase; eyesight and hearing become more acute. This all happens in a moment. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. God has given you the ability to survive in danger as long as it is rational.
10/25/13 There are no secrets to success, only lessons. Listen to the things people don’t say as well as the words they do. Focus on the best in others, and remind them of the things they do well. Make someone else’s day with enthusiastic encouragement. Success is having a loving family and being a true friend to another.
10/24/13 Success doesn’t mean we avoid failure. We all fail sometime, because that is the secret to success. The potholes and wrong turns in life move us in the right direction. We only fail when we stop trying! It is how we profit or learn from our mistakes. Fail forward, not backward. Every detour is an opportunity for growth and successful endeavors.
10/23/13 Is a relationship with God the most important thing in your life? If not, why not? Do you know where you will spend eternity? Do you think on these things? Read God’s instruction book for life and find all the answers to your problems and rest for your weary soul. Every step you take with God gives you victory and peace over life’s problems!
10/22/13 You are always in a battle on the battlefield of your own mind. Don’t let negative thoughts dwell there. God has a unique plan for you with a Divine purpose. God speaks through you, and His power gives you life. Eliminate evil, malice, or angry thoughts because they only bring misery to the person thinking them. Your thoughts eventually become actions so ponder positive things!

I believe everyday is a gift from our Creator. As we age, some may fear the unknown~death. People who become aware of their mortality find they have actually gained freedom to live. They have found they have an appreciation for the present. We are all here to contribute love, forgiveness, and service. As I age, I want to nourish my soul's purpose. If we are open to grace, people will appear in our lives to encourage growth of our souls. Allow me to provide daily nourishment through loving words, because joy is our birthright. I call these my daily "Truth Vitamins" for spiritual health. Join me in discovering together our inner soul purpose with "Love~that's all there is".
