Thank God For Women

One of God's greatest creations is that of a woman.
She is an awesome example of radiance, magnificence
And stunning beauty.
She is your mother, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt or friend-
Always manifesting elegance and confidence that only she can convey.

The world would be an empty place of existence
Without the touch of a woman…
Who would mend your first broken heart?
Who would chase your fears away?
The world is a much better place
Because of a woman's true inner being…
One of courage, determination and that of pure grace.

Be thankful for all of the positive women in your life,
For somewhere along the way …
They prayed for you-
Stayed when others left you-
Comforted you-
Held on when no one else believed in you-
Took pride in you-
Never lied to you-
Respected and protected you-
Nurtured and never forsake you-

Who could not love, honor and respect
A person who would give their all to you?
Let us honor all women not just on this day, but every day-
For some woman, somewhere has loved, honored and respected you …

Why not thank Him for one of his greatest creations?
For if it were not in His divine plan and some woman's caring heart-
There would be no you or I,
So, why not thank God for women?

Loving You.......

Years ago I heard a statement that in order to let others love you the way they are supposed to you must first learn to love yourself. At the time I took this phrase a simply a passing thought. But most recently I have analyzed myself more and more in a search to discover who exactly I am, and what my purpose is here on earth. I think at one point in everyone's life they go through the "what is my purpose" phase. Some people keeping searching all their lives, and some people finally figure things out. Personally it has been a long road toward that self discovery for myself, but praise GOD I am now entering that realm! I am beginning to see myself through GOD's eyes, and the view is simply astonishing! I am learning more and more about myself everyday!! We each need to begin today looking at ourselves and others through GOD's eyes, we each need to begin to think GOD's thoughts, and feel GOD's feelings......if we all could do this, what a wonderful world it would be! Begin today to change the world.....Simply by Loving You!!!!!

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only of the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press onto greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give as much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Christian Dwight Larson (1902 - 1978)
