The First Time

Dear Readers,

 

Remember the anniversary of our first date. We locked eyes and laughed over COFFEE; Unaware how the universe was preparing our HEARTS for something greater. All those nights I prayed and cried out of anguish. All those FROGS I kissed they only proved to be a prince then you came along and showed me that I was deserving of a KING. I will love you because you keep me warm when the harsh winds of life roar. I will love you because you make me laugh on the days that I want to give up. I will love because you show me compassion, patient and you support my need to be ME. I will love you even when you don’t understand my complicated HEART. I will love because you are love expressed in the image of our creator, Yes, I will love you for vowing to be my LAST LOVE, yes my KING, I shall LOVE THEE.

Valentines Day is for suckers

Here we go again. Another Valentine’s Day or as I call it a day for SUCKERS. Valentine’s Day is a day for some women to hold men hostage for “A RING”. A few women will receive roses, that will dry up and die just like the relationship they are in. The majority of women who get excited on Valentine’s Day, due so because this is the only day out of an entire year when their partner will express love towards them.

My hope for women on this Valentine’s Day is for them to know their own worth, and stop measuring how someone else sees their value. Women of all ages must understand the value of self-love rather than waiting for someone to show love to them. You are more precious than any DIAMOND RING. You have a beauty that Surpasses the life of any ROSE. Don’t buy into the myth that Valentine’s Day is that one special day to show your loved. The Bible says that” Love is patient, Love is kind, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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 truth. It always protects, always trusts, always……..

The power of a remarkable attitude

Dear readers,

In is book Man’s Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl wrote these amazing words: “We who lived in the concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last pieces of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: The last of his freedom is to choose his own attitude in any given set of circumstances -to choose one’s own way.”
