The modern - day teacher ; Thich Nat Hahn describes this beautifully:
"Although we cannot cover the entire world with peace,
We can cover our own feet & step at a time, walk along, bringing peace with us."
If we try to fix a troubled world while we ourselves are filled with anger & confusion, we are of little value.
Our ultimate contribution is who we are.
We do not cover the truth of who we are with good intentions or fight for causes.
First we face ourselves.
When we are ready, we can bring true ease of heart wherever we go.
Oh my goodness, these last couple of weekends I've been sick.
Last weekend I had a bad head cold.
This weekend I got food poisoning.
I'm tired of being sick.
Is this the way my body is self cleansing inside & out, Spring Cleaning so to speak.
OK, enough is enough, I want my life back.
Isn't it wonderful
How God will bring the right people
Into your life,
Just when you need them.
People who will
Love,support, guide and pray
For you regardless
Of the circumstances.
I read this and thought how profound and wanted to share.
God certainly works in mysterious ways, huh ?
A friend of mine gave me this card which read;
When LIFE gets too HECTIC,
I've always found that a NICE,
HOT BATH can SOLVE most PROBLEMS.
I've been in here since last THURSDAY.
It made me laugh so I wanted to share it with YOU !
I hope it will lift your spirits after having a hard day.
It did mine ! :)
Today was my first day back to work. I was a sub so my co-workers could do a refresher class for CPR - First Aide.
To my dismay I was informed that a pass co-worker will be working with me again. This co-worker came up to me to let me know. OH NOOOOOOOO !!!!! My emotions got the best of me. I worked with this lady for 2 yrs. It was like walking on egg shells. I couldn't wait to go home. It was getting sooooooo bad that I was counting the days.
I started to cry. I cried to my director. I told her I couldn't work with her again. :(
They made a change without even asking me how I felt.
It was miserable ! You couldn't please this lady for nothing.
She was very jealous of me and thought she should have the job I got as the lead teacher. OY
Last yr. was the best yr. because I was working with someone else that we meshed. It was wonderful !
Now we had a yr. apart they seem to think things will be different. Who are they kidding ?
She is the same person. You can't change over a yr.? They really don't know what to do with her ?
I've seen her inaction. OMG, I don't even want to go to work now. I love those little ones.
I'm too upset to even think of it. It didn't work before, why would it work now ?
All I want to do is cry. It is that upsetting to me. :(
Everyone says that they understand how I feel and don't blame me because they know how she is.
So I am suppose to keep an open mind and in-brace it. Give it a chance.
That is all I can do. If I didn't need this job I would honestly leave and don't look back. That is how bad I remembered how it was the 2 yrs. I worked with this lady. :(
Your thoughts turn into your beliefs,
Your beliefs turn into actions,
Your actions turn into habits,
Your habits create your character,
Your character defines your life.
I read this and thought I would share........
Hummmm.......makes a lot of sense huh.........
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It is not rude,
It is not self - seeking. It is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
But rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trust,
Always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13: 4 - 8
Just a friendly reminder what LOVE truly is.
A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly,
"I know what the Bible means !"
His father smiled and replied,
"What do you mean, you "know" what the Bible means ?
The son replied "I do know !"
"Okay," the father said, "What does the Bible mean ?"
"That's easy, Daddy" the young boy replied excitedly,
"It stands for "Basic Information Before Leaving Earth."
I read this and wanted to share it.
So simply profound, that I didn't have anything to add but......
Sounds good to me and certainly makes a lot of sense too. :-)
May God grant you always........
"A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you.
Faithful friends near you.
And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you."
Just wanted to share this........
I just wanted to tell my EP friends that are very dear to me, I am sooooooo sorry for miss leading you.
Today May 4th is not my birthday but is a very special day to me.
This is the day that my angel was born 22 years ago; Aaron Joseph.
In his honor, I wanted to celebrate his birthday for my special day.
I just felt the need to do so.
I miss him very much and wonder what he would of been like if he was here with me today.
I know he is watching over me and my family and I feel very blessed.
HAPPY 22nd BIRTHDAY AARON JOSEPH !!
Mommy loves you very much. xxxxoooo
Life is not a race........but indeed a journey.
Be honest. Walk hard. Be choosey.
Say, "Thank You", "I Love You", and "Great Job" to someone each day.
Go to church, take time for prayer.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh.
Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper.
Love your life and what you've been given, it is not accidental........
Search for your purpose and do it as best as you can.
Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be.
Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them.
Some of the best things really are free.
Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming.
Forgive, it frees the soul.
Take time for yourself..........plans for longevity.
Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know.
Live for today, enjoy the moment.
I read this and wanted to share it. It touched me deeply.
Living Life says it all. Beautiful words to live by. Love it !
Don't be so busy adding up your troubles,
that...... you forgot to count your blessings.
I read this and wanted to share it. Love It !!! So profound and true. :-)
I learn from Noah's Ark ;
One........Don't miss the boat.......
Two........Remember that you are in the same boat.........
Three.....Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.......
Four.......Stay fit. When you're 600 years old,
someone may ask you to do something really big..........
Five.......Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done........
Six.........Build your future on high ground.......
Seven.....For safety's sake, travel in pairs.........
Eight......Speed isn't always an advantage.......
The snails were on board with the cheetahs.........
Nine......When you're stressed, float a while........
Ten........Remember, the Ark was build by amateurs;
the Titanic by professionals.........
Eleven....No matter the storm, when you are with God,
there's always a rainbow waiting.........
Makes sense......huh.......wanted to share this...........
I have in my hands two boxes,
Which God gave me to hold.
He said, " Put all your sorrows in the black box,
And all your joys in the gold. "
I heeded His words, and in the two boxes,
Both my joys and sorrows I stored,
But though the gold became heavier each day,
The black was as light as before.
With curiosity, I opened the black box,
I wanted to find out why,
And I saw, in the ba
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.
I showed the hole to God, and mused,
" I wonder where my sorrows could be ! "
He smiled a gentle smile and said,
" My child, they're all here with me. "
I asked God, why He gave me the boxes,
Why the gold and the black with the hole ?
" My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
The black is for you to let go. "
2. Not yet
3. I have something better in mind
There's a little truth behind every; just kidding.
There's a little curiousity behind every; just wondering.
There's a little knowledge behind every; I don't know.
There's a little emotion behind every; I don't care.
An interesting fact about October 2010 I wanted to share;
Did you know that Ocotber of 2010 has;
5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays all in 1 month !!!!
It only happens once in 823 years. WOW......isn't that truly amazing !!!!
We take so much for granted in this country,
like peace, security, prosperity and freedom.
Watching you play earlier today, I remember my job as a parent
is to help you become strong, thoughtful and caring as well as happy.
It's my job to help you become a person who enjoys freedom with responsiblity,
a person who solves problems with thought to the future and to the well being of others,
a person who holds strong values including a love for family and community,
a person who loves life, with the wisdom to know you will make mistakes and the gumption to fix them.
I will try to help you become a man or woman who deserves freedom because ot the quality of character.
Here is my commitment to you:
Around our home, I will set a few firm limits on things like,
respectful speech, chores for the family, family meals and learning time.
I'll hope and pray you make thousands of great mistakes when you're young
when the price of learning is small.
And when you do, I'll smile and hold you resonsible with love , not anger.
I will give you many opportunities to struggle.
I'll often let you solve your own problems.
I'll not teach you to be weak or overly dependent on me.
When you are sad, I'll be there to listen, or hold your hand.
When you are happy, we'll celebrate. We'll laugh and build memories.
We'll spend time with beauty, art, music, nature and divine spirit.
I will try to help you discover that you are a child of God, that life is worth living,
that most people are worth loving, that good can grow in our hearts and souls.
I'll do my best and then it is up to you.
I pray that you choose joy every day, and that you live in a country that ,
never forgets its commitment and divine calling to raise children of character and value.
This was written by Bob Sornson
If more parents follow this creed........how beautiful would that be.......hummmmm
I just wanted to pass this on. I feel the need to do just that.
Suffering has to come because if you look at the cross,
He has got his head bending down,
He wants to kiss you,
And He has both hands open wide,
He wants to embrace you.
He has his heart opened wide to receive you.
Then when you feel miserable inside,
Look at the cross and you will know what is happening.
Suffering, pain, sorrow, humiliation, feelings of loniness,
Are nothing but the kiss of Jesus.
I read this and it touched my heart that I wanted to share it........
