Are You Anxious About the Future?

Are You Anxious About the Future?

So many unknowns exist in our world today. Do these make you anxious about the future?     From politics, to violence, to natural disasters, to so many other things out of our control…they certainly create moments of fear, anxiety, and sometimes, sheer panic.   Yet, in spite of how it looks, God is still in control, but He allows us as humans to choose which paths to follow.

I Nearly Died 32 Years Ago Today – But for the Grace of God

I Nearly Died 32 Years Ago Today – But for the Grace of God

By the Grace of God … I’m Still Here Today! 🙂   On this day 32 years ago – God spared my life and the lives of my 3-year-old son Andrew, 4-month-old daughter Shara, and another 2-year-old child I was caring for, when a raging fire trapped us in our 2nd-floor apartment.   I had to drop the children out the window to police officers who arrived ahead of the fire department.

Are You Content Where You Are, Yet Looking Forward to Where You’re Headed?

Content for Now… Excited for What’s Ahead! 🙂   If you celebrated  St. Patrick’s Day yesterday, I hope you had a nice day! I had an amazing experience 43 years ago, in March 1974.

One of the things that stood out to me the most flying over…

Faith and Inspiration to NOT Quit!

Faith and Inspiration to NOT Quit!

Don’t You Quit! 🙂 I’ve been reviewing and recycling older posts, and again came across one that is so timely even 5 years after  I first wrote it! This one reminds me of a poem entitled, “Don’t You Quit!”   The first stanza goes like this: “When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, when the funds are low and the debts are high, and you want to smile, but you have…

What Would a Dream Society Look Like?

What Would a Dream Society Look Like?

Imagine, If You Will… 🙂 Imagine your dream society… one with no fear, no destruction or violence, no diseases, no death … just peace and harmony, love and compassion, where everyone treats one another respectfully and kindly, and where there is TRUE justice and righteousness. Sounds like some kind of heavenly utopia, doesn’t it?  Some days it helps to ponder such fantasies or dreams to help us through the harsh realities of life as we know it, much like taking…

Learn from Your Past Failures – But Do NOT Let Them Define Your Future Successes

Learn from Your Past Failures – But Do NOT Let Them Define Your Future Successes

Wow, 21 days into 2017 already! Are you still working on your goals or action plans for this new year? I’ve been going through older posts that didn’t get many views and/or comments, for whatever reason, and re-publishing some select ones. This seems especially relevant right now for this topic.   Are you worried that your past failures will define your future success? They don’t have to!   Success is not instantaneous, as much as we might like it to…
