Life After Death

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
                       Norman Cousins

Saturday, September 14, 2019 marks the one year devastation my family experienced as the result of the sudden death of my 28 year old nephew who was gunned down in front of his apartment after arriving home from work.

I would like to take this time to thank my Heavenly Father for His power of healing. If you have read the blog I wrote last year title, "The Day God Broke My Heart", you read of the hurt and pain I felt.

QUOTE FOR TODAY

I realized that if my thoughts immediately affect my body, I should be careful about what I think. Now if I get angry, I ask myself why I feel that way. If I can find the source of my anger, I can turn that negative energy into something positive.
                        Yoko Ono

Stay True To Yourself

Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.
                 Phillip Sweet

Enjoy Your Life

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
                       Earl Nightingale

Words Of Encouragement

Don't let a temporary emotion cloud your judgment!

Never make a permanent decision based on a temporary storm. No matter how raging the billows are today, remind yourself: "This too shall pass!"
                                           T D Jakes

QUOTE FOR TODAY

Humans aren't as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or animals on Earth. So maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, that were 'reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.'

                         Neil deGrasse Tyson

QUOTE FOR TODAY

Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
            John Rockefeller

"Beautiful People"

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
                               Audrey Hepburn

From My Heart To Yours

When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything about the rule of the law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.
                                   Pope John Paul II

My nephew was violently gunned down back in September after arriving home from work by someone who had forsaken his freedom by not knowing his purpose in life.

QUOTE FOR TODAY

 Age and size are only numbers. It's the attitude you bring to clothes that makes the difference.
               Donna Karan
