MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

Merry Christmas!

It’s that time of year again to wish all a Merry Christmas, the old year will soon come to an end as we count our blessings or not?   I am excited as I eagerly await the beginning of a new chapter in the Book of my Life; the year it will become a Bestseller.  Your?

My source for success will be a strong commitment to my desires and dreams.  2020 is a good as any start and a great time to begin asking new questions that lead to new heights or the completion of something worth an ending.

Benjamin Franklin tells us, It’s the dream that gives birth to changes. Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every New Year find you a better person.

I can’t find a better place to be then in the land of the living for another New Year.  This could be the year we find the inspiration we may have lacked last year by asking for help; that could be something new?  A change in the way we normally do things may be well worth it.

As for me, I am a little selfish and claim two New Years’ day celebrations, one is the traditional, January 1st, and the other is August 10, my birthday when it will truly be another new year for me.

In the meantime, wrap it up, I’ll take it, January 1st work for me.

It’s Something the Think About!

Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everybody.

I AIN’T MAD, BUT THE TRUTH IS…

I AIN’T MAD, BUT THE TRUTH IS…

The truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.  Mark Twain.

The truth about well done is better than well said.

We can hide many things, but no matter how hard we may try, the Sun, the Moon, and the Truth will eventually come out.  So, the truth is, to tell the truth, or someone will tell it for you.

Most pretend to not know the importance of being earnest, the truth is, telling the truth gives us the assurance of not having to remember what we say.

Taking into account all the Fake News we are bombasted with daily, the truth is, Facts do not cease to exist just because they are ignored.

Just because a man dies for what he thinks is true does not make it true.  The truth is we are surrounded by deceit and lies; the sad thing is telling the truth in this environment is likened to starting WW3.

When we stand face to face with another, it’s hard to be ourselves without embellishing who we are, but, the truth is if we give another or ourselves a mask, then and only then there is a possibility we may tell us the truth.

Most times, when we lie and then realize it was not detected, we give ourselves a sigh of relief before running from the facts.  The truth is, now we are lying to ourselves by acting as if it never happened.

Unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot forgive yourself.  The truth is you have to be unapologetically you.  Steve Maraboli

The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to give them a chance for you to trust them.  The thing is you’ll have your answer.

There have been times when I chose to look the other way, especially when I shouldn’t have but did it anyway.  The truth is, now I can never say I didn’t know.

What is done cannot be undone, like keeping unworthy secrets.  The truth is, at some point the secret becomes irrelevant, the fact that you kept it does not.

In a room where people unanimously maintain a conspiracy of silence, one word of truth sounds like a pistol shot.  Czestaw Mitosz

Everyone should choose how much truth they can stand, but when you cut pieces out of the truth that’s when you start to look like a moron.

We all should know the opposite of a correct statement is a false statement, and we should cherish those who speak the truth, the thing is we’re more interested in those who claim to have found it.

The thing is the truth is not always tasteful.  People often claim to hunger for it, but seldom do they like the taste when it’s served up.

Thanksgiving?

Did you know thankfulness is to be appreciative; and Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings?   W.A. Ward

We cannot pick our families, but we can choose who we sit down to fellowship with.

Therefore; Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whom You choose and cause to come near, that he may dwell in Your courts!   Psalm 65:4  The Amplified Bible

For quite a few of us, the Thanksgiving Holiday means extra days off of work, an array of good and not so healthy food for all to enjoy, parades, and of course football games.  Oops, let’s not forget family and friends, while keeping a close watch on the door, in an effort to keep you know who out.

Satan is always banging on the glass, asking to come in, especially if it’s a bonding session.  He knew on these occasions a misunderstood word or gesture can complicate a good meal, therefore creating and non-Christian like environment that can destroy the Thanksgiving Spirit; disappointing the pilgrims.  (Children, the un-involved, etc.)

With so much confusion and different activities going on, perhaps we are missing the whole meaning of Thanksgiving?

Did you know, Psalm 92:1-4, from The Bible Truth, tells us: And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the Lord, offer it at your own will… God does not compel us or require us that we show gratitude to Him?

The meaning of Thanksgiving (1st Corinthians 14:16) is the language to be used as an act of worship intended for only God?  And thanksgiving is the means whereby we acknowledge the receipt of God’s forgiveness.

So the true meaning of Thanksgiving is a relationship between God and man.  It’s an attitude of the heart, and that reinforces the relationship.

And, did you know some of us to realize He is worthy of our gratitude?  We belong to Him and have been blessed with life; an abundant life when we give Him all the Glory.

So, this Thanksgiving Day and all to come, before we start enjoying the festivities, let it be your will to Giving thanks to the Lord, for he is good.  His love endures forever.    Psalm 136:1

Then pray for peace.  🙂

Thank you, Lord, for each new day, for our health, the air we breathe, good food, our loved ones, and friends.  Let us be a blessing to all those we come in contact with.

Thank you for everything, your Grace sends.  It is in the name of Jesus Christ that we pray.

Thank you for your support.

CANCER: JUST SO YOU KNOW?

CANCER: JUST SO YOU KNOW?

Everybody’s Cancer Journey is not the same, and God is not in the business of dispensing pain or drama.  He is a healer, so stop blaming Him for what the World has to offer while listening to the Devil and the Devillets encouraging us to give up on Faith.

Here is an example.

When I arrived home from having a Mastectomy, a sweet-looking old lady, who happened to be with a friend, took me by the hand while rubbing it ever so gently saying, we all have been praying for you, baby.  And then she asked if I knew Betty Ann when I said “no” she said, “Good because Betty Ann only lasted 6 months.”

Run!  The Devil is a liar and comes in all shapes, forms, and fashions, especially when we are weak.  Did you know To Kill the Head is to Kill the Body?

As for me, I sought the Lord. He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.  Psalms 43:4

Just so you know, with or without cancer life is a steady stream of ups and downs, ins and outs, good and bad, so on and so forth’s.  In other words, Cancer is just another worldly battle we may have to fight uphill.

I pray this next statement is not you from sheer experience.

Did you know there are those who fall apart if they see or hear the word cancer spoken in the same sentence as their name?  If this is you, you may already be dead in your head, coupled with you decided that fate for yourself.

Not I, Jesus Christ and Perseverence is King in my book.

Now don’t get me wrong, perseverance is not an easy task; it takes a steady persistence in a course of action, purpose in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement, with little or no indication of success, but this is clear; All things work together for the good of them that love God and those called to his purpose.

And just so you know, sometimes just surviving cancer is not enough; we have to overcome the memory and the toll it takes on our friends and our bodies.  I did not say to forget.

I had to learn to love my scars; they’re a blessing because they remind me of the fact that the Dead Don’t Heal.

And I discovered worrying does not empty tomorrow’s troubles and you don’t get to choose if or how you get hurt in this world.

Those who want, have the Creator on their side, not to mention they have already been given Eternal Life, whom or what shall they fear?

So breath in your courage and exhale your fears because new beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.

Remember Resilience relies on its goals to strive, and to overcome the unexpected, creating Sustainability, which is all about Surviving.

And just so you know it’s time for us to go int the world as over-encourages, because the world is already full of critics.

It’s Something To Think About!

CANCER?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

CANCER?

I don’t know about you, but I am a 3rd Stage Cancer Survivor who is I am tired of talking about what cancer did to me.  I prefer to talk about what it did not and could not do.

When I first read the poem What Cancer Cannot Do, (I don’t know who the author is) it left me with an odd feeling that something in me wanted to come out.

I soon found myself dissecting each verse for a better understanding of why Cancer is so limited it can’t cripple love or shatter hope, corrode faith, eat away peace, destroy confidence, kill friendships, shut out memories, silence courage, reduce eternal life or quench the spirit.

In 2008 I had cancer, and the more I thought about it, the more I understood just how limited Cancer really is.  It was obvious to me that cancer couldn’t cripple love simply because most know relationships don’t last because of the good times.

Relationships last because of love, respect and caring, coupled with the healing spirit we received from God.

Cancer cannot shatter hope.

No one I know plans to live a hopeless life.

Hope is a feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent.  So if you have hope, you have what you need to press forward.

Cancer cannot corrode Faith. 

I know faith can go far beyond what the eyes can see, so focus on the fight, not the fright.

I am living proof that no matter what the statistics say, there is always another way.

I suggest when you reach the end of your rope to tie a knot and hang on because your seeds of faith are always within you.  Sometimes it just takes a crisis to nourish and encourage their growth.   Did you know if we feed our faith through Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, our fears will starve to death?

Cancer cannot eat away peace. 

It matters what we do, but peace cannot and will never be kept by force.  I suggest we not be in a hurry while doing everything quietly and in a calm spirit.

Did you know no matter how much havoc cancer may wreak on our bodies, it does not have the final say?

Craig T. Owen’s analysis tells us If God doesn’t take cancer out of us on earth, He will take us out of cancer, and home to heaven.

Cancer cannot destroy confidence.

Confidence is the foundation of all success and achievements.  Then again, not everyone will be saved.  That’s Life!

Be confident that cancer is not a death sentence for all, take your chances by using the Power of the Holy Spirit, while listening to your doctor, not the wagging of tongues.

Help yourself by being mentally and physical humble in your confidence, yet courageous in your fight, and remember confidence is feeling good about yourself without anyone having to tell you how beautifully bald, or how brave you are.

Cancer cannot kill friendships. 

When someone has cancer and you are a friend, be that friend.  Don’t miss your opportunity to reach out and touch the things you know as a friend and use them to help.  No pity parties allowed.

And just so you know, some friends can’t manage their own fears, so they may be unable to support you.  We need to understand, if that was to happen, it’s not always about you.

Cancer cannot shut out memories.

If you attempt to shut your mind down, that action allows depression to strengthen its hold.

And just in case you are not brain dead or planning on it, take into consideration Bill Watterson’s point of view, he calmly reminds us, The mind is like a car battery, it recharges by running.

Cancer cannot silence courage.

Courage is moving forward, not a disease you fear when wondering what’s ahead.  And just like all success is not final, not all failures are fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

Did you know with Jesus Christ you are stronger than you struggle and fiercer than your fears?

By developing discipline and strength, you can move far beyond any setbacks, and you will gain the courage to embrace who you are and your divine purpose.

Cancer cannot reduce Eternal Life.

We are eternal beings, and we that love God will never die.  Christians sometimes make themselves into elephants afraid of mice.  You have The Creator on your side, not to mention you’ve already been given Eternal Life.  Whom or what shall you fear?

Criss Jami points out; To be afraid of death or anything other than God Himself, in his and my opinion, is like an insult to Him.

Cancer cannot quench the spirit.

The word quench in Scripture is speaking of suppressing the fire.

Ephesians 6:16 tells us above all, taking up the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 

I know cancer is wicked, but it’s your belief in God and trust in your doctors that will put the fires out.  I believe that because it was done for me.  I also believe what is written in the Bible as the Gospel Truth, so because of that, I believe Jesus Christ is the reason I am alive today.

I am not trying to take anything away from the seriousness of cancer, but I found the best way to cope, for me, is to treat cancer just like I would any other illness, setback or life event as just another part of life we will have to deal with, So deal with it.

It’s Something To Think About!

To God Be the Glory!
