Not Permitted

The feeling of nature on the skin reaches a part of the inner core of your soul that changes your emotional and physical being at the very moment of contact.  The feeling of wind on your face, the hot sun beaming down on you and the ocean waves crashing. Sounds and feelings that are indescribable.  A feeling that everyone should experience, yet not all are able to embrace such peaceful sounds and see the beauty of the ocean.

Flowers In Flight

In a roller-coaster flight, the winding tracks go up, the ride gains momentum, pushing toward the top only to decline in the valley of the ride.  Doesn’t sound like much fun, does it?  Just as we climb every mountain before us to gain momentum, we also fall deep into the valley prey to disappointment. Sometimes in these moments, we lose friends, opportunities, sometimes even family.  At what cost shall it be to climb the mountain or turn on the winding track into the path of our purpose?

SO SERIOUS ~ TwEEtIe…NOT!!

hA ha hA…

the wind blows to the north

the wind blows to the south

the wind blows to the east

the wind blows to the west

do we really know which way the wind blows?

similar to the story of our life, you never know which way it will go

so serious

release the inner child, your true self, a life of inspiration to others, not a life expecting a pat on the back for a job well done because you climbed that mountain of hell.

sure, sharing your life story and how you have overcome is great, at what point will you stop making it about you, stop being so serious and live a little more freely.

legalistic

scripture tells us more than our brains can comprehend.  remember not to be legalistic or pretentious, displaying perfection. nowhere in the bible does it say that you can’t laugh, that you can’t have fun.  Jesus had a fun filled life and ….in case you didn’t know…you ain’t GOD!

yep…my grammar is not perfectly placed in this blog….you know what…I did it ON PURPOSE!  So serious……get out and enjoy the sunshine, enjoy family, friends, and stop displaying yourself on social media, or your blogs, or anywhere.

If you want to share the love of God, and all that He has done for you, make it personal, face to face, one on one to those who need it most.  Take a walk with your neighbor, visit the hospitals, the nursing homes, share a moment with a veteran, someone is always facing a harder walk than you. Whether it be cancer, drug addiction, loneliness, depression, whatever it is…it’s not the end all of end alls…get off your soap box and stop drowning yourself in your own pitty or if you are pattin’ yourself on the back…careful not to break your arm for lack of reach…boasting is a sin too!

It’s not about me, it’s not about you, it is about others and bringing smiles,

hope, and love to other people!

 

Jesus tells us that man’s praise is short-lived and shallow (Matthew 6:2), but God himself will reward the things done in secret (Matthew 6:4).

Feel the wind, go have some fun and live life.

Stop seeking man’s praise and start living your best life yet!

I am here to say…don’t quit! Continue reading “Unlock Your Future”

Hiding Place

Ever consider going away somewhere just so you can hide from the mundane of daily duties and dealings?  Absolutely, I have, we all have.  Our thoughts instantly go to a place far away such as the beach, the peaceful serenity of the mountains, or a destination of hibernating so no one can find us, no drama, and no responsibility.  Just you and Calgon!
