The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings butshorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spendmore, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger housesand smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have moredegrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, moreexperts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh toolittle, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up tootired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added yearsto life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back,but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor Weconquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things,but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered theatom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We planmore, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. Webuild more computers to hold more information, to produce more copiesthan ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and smallcharacter, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the daysof two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality,one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything fromcheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in theshowroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technologycan bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either toshare this insight, or to just hit delete...
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe,because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that isthe only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost acent.
Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, butmost of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comesfrom deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

We all have some kind of purpose on this earth,
It's not to hurt people or tell them their worth.
Everyone was put here with an equal chance,
Take a look around you, take a good long glance.
Some were meant to heal, and some to teach,
Some are used to build, and some to reach.
You may not know your purpose just yet,
God will tell you, when he knows you are set.
Don't rush your fate, it has already been planned,
And God will always be there to lend a helping hand..
You will go through times that are really rough,
But you will always have someone, when the going gets tough.
Don't judge others, for when you do,
There is always someone else, judging you.
Think about things before they are said,
Say your prayers before going off to bed.
Take time just to sit, and observe all things,
A flower and it's petals, or a bird and it's wings.
For when you just look at what is around,
A new aspect on life could be what you have found.
Live for today, live one day at a time.
Live for yourself, and for God, that's no crime.
For when you do all these things to make your life great,
You will find your own way to the pearly white gate.
Let us love one another:) You are God's blessing to me indeed really you are.
You have yourself a awesome week with Jesus, God bless you in all you do in Jesus my sweet and Blessed all friends:0)
Love and Blessings.

What to Do When we Don't Understand God's ways!
As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You willstretch out Your hand Against the wrath of my enemies, And Your righthand will save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Yourmercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, havingour hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed withpure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope withoutwavering, for He who promised is faithful.
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,"says the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are Myways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safepasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desiresof your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will dothis.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your ownunderstanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make yourpath straight.

Where there is love the heart is light,
Where there is love
the day is bright,
Where there is love there is a song
To help when things
are going wrong. . .
Where there is love there is a smile
To make all things
seem more worthwhile,
Where there is love there's quiet peace,
A tranquil place
where turmoils cease
Love changes darkness into light
And makes the heart
take "wingless flight" . . .
Oh, blest are they who walk in love,
They also walk
with God above .
And when man walks with God again,
There shall be Peace On Earth for men.

"Reflections Of A Mother"
I gave you life,
but cannot live it for you...
I can give you directions,
but I cannot be there to lead you...
I can take you to church,
but I cannot make you believe...
I can teach you right from wrong,
but I cannot always decide for you...
I can buy you beautiful clothes,
but I cannot make you beautiful inside...
I can offer you advice,
but I cannot accept it for you...
I can give you love,
but I cannot force it upon you...
I can teach you to share,
but I cannot make you unselfish...
I can teach you respect,
but I cannot force you to show honor...
I can advise you about friends,
but cannot choose them for you...
I can advise you about sex,
but I cannot keep you pure...
I can tell you about alcohol & drugs,
but I can't say "No" for you...
I can tell you about lofty goals,
but I can't achieve them for you...
I can teach you about kindness,
but I can't force you to be gracious...
I can pray for you,
but I cannot make you walk with God...
I can tell you how to live,
but I cannot give you eternal life...
I can love you with unconditional love all of
and I will...

Sometimes I wonder when things go wrong,
Has God forsaken and left me alone?
Then I remember through trials and distress,
He’s always with me,
I’m most richly blessed.
I asked God for strength,
that I might achieve;
I was made weak, that I might learn to humbly obey.
I asked for health,
that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.
I asked for riches,
that I might be happy;
I was given poverty, that I might be wise.
I asked for power,
that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things,
that I might enjoy life;
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for,
But everything I had hoped for,
And almost despite myself,
My unspoken prayers were answered.
He’s always with me
I am, among all men, most richly, blessed.

When troubles come into our life,
Our path may be dark and seem uphill;
It's then, we must keep our Faith strong,
We need to rest awhile, pray and be still.
It's difficult sometimes to go on,
With tears on the cheeks to glisten;
We must press on and keep our Joy,
God has Promised He will always listen.
With Faith as a grain of mustard seed,
The night of dark despair will turn to day;
We will smile again as we walk on,
If we remember to be still and pray.
God has Promised He will never leave us,
We must have Faith and Trust in Him;
What He has Promised He will do,
If we follow Him, He will lead us from sin.
Without Faith, it's impossible to please God,
That would be a sad situation to be in;
Today, in Faith, we need to make Him our choice,
Then, some day, we will live forever with Him.

1. God Loves You! The Bible says, "God so loved theworld that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"
The problem is that . . .
2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God. The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God isperfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Biblesays “The wages of sin is death.”
The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago,
3. God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the crossto pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for usin that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”
Jesusrose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. Heoffers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said "I am theway, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me."
God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many asreceived Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, evento those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christto forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
4.If you want to accept Christ as Savior and turn from your sins, you canask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this: "LordJesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on thecross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift ofeternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."
Did you pray this prayer???
GOD BLESS YOU!!!
