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!

Learning vs Performance

As we learn, we grow; as we grow, we reach a new level of aspirations.

Driven.  Ambition.  Goals.  Perseverance.  Focus.  Dream.  Aspire.

Ever ask yourself why you are tired all the time?  Are you doing, doing, doing?  Or are you learning and doing?  Alternating between the two can hinder our growth. The best way to grow is to give full focus and practice to what you desire to change in your growth process.  Purposely focus on the learning and then move into the performance.  Reflect on the performance to see what mistakes you made, and then adjust.  This is learning.

Wondering Weight

It is 3:00 am and my brain is working overtime, the weight of the wondering, over what?  What could be keeping me from enjoying a night of uninterrupted sleep?  In a moment’s notice, life changed, out of nowhere, life took a turn for the better.

The thoughts that weigh on our minds in the middle of the day, or the night, are not always heavy thoughts.  Generally, when someone lies awake at night the first thought is, “they are struggling with something”.  Why does it have to appear as a struggle?  It is a rarity for the world to mention the lighthearted wonders that keep us awake.

~A missed moment of hope for someone in need is a blessing not shared~

Divine Joy

Even in the struggles that we go through we rarely consider them a

“Divine Joy.”

As I am going through my new chapter in this life, I find the people that I encounter are intriguing.  I have been in the world of the homeless and poor, and I have been associated with the world of the rich and wealthy where appearance, titles, and dollars matter.  Of course, there is nothing the same in these two worlds, right?
