...with love all things are possible

Believe ...

John  is the kind of guy you love to hate.  He is  always in a good mood and always has something  positive to say.  When someone would ask him  how he was doing, he would reply, 'If I were any  better, I would be twins!'

He was a natural motivator.

If an employee  was having a bad day, John was there telling the  employee how to look on the positive side of the  situation.

Seeing this style  really made me curious, so one day I went up and asked him, 'I don't get  it!'
'You can't be a positive  person all of the  time.
How do you  do it?'

He  replied, 'Each morning I wake up and say to myself,  you have two  choices today.  You can choose to be in a good  mood or...you can choose to  be in a bad mood

I choose to be in  a good mood..'

Each time something  bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or... I can  choose to learn from it.  I choose to learn from it.

Every time someone  comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept  their complaining or...I can point out the positive  side of life.  I choose the positive side of  life.

“Yeah, right, it's not that  easy,' I protested.

'Yes, it is,'  he said.  'Life is all about choices.  When you cut away all the junk, every  situation is a choice.  You choose how you  react to situations.  You choose how people  affect your mood.

You choose to be  in a good mood or bad mood.  The bottom line:  It's your choice how you live your  life.'

I reflected on what he said.  Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to  start my own business.  We lost touch, but I  often thought about him when I made a choice about  life instead of reacting to  it.

Several years later, I heard  that he was involved in a serious accident, falling  some 60 feet from a communications  tower.  After 18 hours of  surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was released  from the hospital with rods placed in his  back.

I saw him about six months after the accident.

When I  asked him how he was, he replied, 'If I were any  better, I'd be twins...Wanna see my  scars?'

I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his  mind as the accident took  place.

'The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my  soon-to-be born daughter,' he replied.  'Then,  as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two  choices:  I could choose to live or...I could  choose to die.  I chose to live.'

'Weren't you scared?  Did you lose consciousness?'  I  asked.

He continued, '...the paramedics were great.

They  kept telling me I was going to be fine.  But  when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the  expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses,  I got really scared.  In their eyes, I read  'he's a dead man'.  I knew I needed to take  action.'

'What did you do?' I asked.

'Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,' said John.  'She asked if I was allergic to anything 'Yes,  I replied.'  The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply.  I took a  deep breath and yelled,  'Gravity''

Over their laughter,  I told them, 'I am choosing to live.  Operate  on me as if I am alive, not  dead.'

He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his  amazing attitude.....I learned from him that every  day we have the choice to live  fully.

Attitude, after all, is everything.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry  about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.'  Matthew  6:34.

After all today is the  tomorrow you worried about  yesterday.


Life Is An Echo

What you send out - comes back.
What you sow - you reap.
What you give - you get.
What you see in others - exists in you.

Remember, Life is an Echo.
It always gets back to you.


Broken Dreams

As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God
Because He was my Friend.

But then instead of leaving
Him in peace to work alone,
I hung around to help
With ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried,
“How can you be so slow?”
“My child,” He said, “What could I do?
You never did let go.”

There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk
Away from you: let them walk.
I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you,
Loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you,
Staying attached to you.
I mean hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you let them walk.
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.
The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might
Be made manifest that they were not for us.
For had they been of us, no doubt they
Would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]
People leave you because they are not joined to you.
And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.
Let them go.
And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means
That their part in the story is over. And you've got
To know when people's part in your story is over so that you
Don't keep trying to raise the dead.
You've got to know when it's dead.
You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something.
I've got the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift,
I believe in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful,
it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God
Means for me to have He'll give it to me.
And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it.
Stop begging people to stay.
Let them go!!
If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you
And was never intended for your life, then you need to......
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ......
If someone can't treat you right, love you back,
And see your worth.....
If someone has angered you,
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge......
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction......
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets
Your needs or talents
If you have a bad attitude.......
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......
If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take
You to a new level in Him........
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.......
If you keep trying to help someone who won't even
Try to help themselves......
If you're feeling depressed and stressed .........
If there is a particular situation that you are so used to
Handling yourself and God is saying
"take your hands off of it," then you need to......
Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
GOD is doing a new thing for this New Year!
Get Right or Get Left .. Think about it, and then,
"The Battle is the Lord's!"
