Thoughts are the essence of our search for purpose. The adventures that quite possibly move us toward our center. What is the center that defines many of us? We were born with it, yet it
takes a lifetime to learn it. To know it. It is the core, the fundamental essence of our future.
These core values and beliefs can lead us to where we share new revelations, new beginnings and a new awareness that leads us closer to God.

When you lose your Mom it leaves a powerful, but empty void in your life. You feel many emotions, but most of all I experience the love that my Mom gave to me. What a wonderful woman she was. I love her for everything she gave to me, her love, her care and her gentle touch. She meant so much to me. She led me through this life, she gave me the courage to carry on. And carry on I will. Her spirit is with me, Her touch, her love will always be with me.
She meant more than the world to me. God knows I will miss her, but I have learned that God gave me a gift, and that was the gift of Love from my mother. I will always cherish her. I will always love her. I will always think of when she knew just the right thing to say to me. But I will be strong. I will hold my head high and live the rest of my life in triumph in honor of my Mom.
Mother, I love you and I know that you are in in heaven with Dad. Now its time for me to live the lessons you thaught me. They will not be in vain. Thank you Lord for giving me the priviledge of living my life at the feet of such a beautiful woman. I thank you Father, through My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
May you rest in glorious peace in heaven Mom. May God bless and keep you!
1 Timothy 6:6 Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing in this world and it is certain we can take nothing out of it. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
That’s really not a radical statement. But as you study it you will find it is true. We came into this world as a baby with nothing. Slowly we absorbed the world’s trinkets and because the world was and is fallen there is unimaginable sin. So whatever we acquire here it is a product of a sinful world. Yet how do we cope?
Our work is to stay in the ‘Word” ask for discernement from the Lord to understand that only though Him can we gain Godliness, contentment, satisfaction , joy and hope. That’s powerful! God’s only requirement is that you develope a relationship with His Son and our Savior Jesus Christ.
Be content in the ” Word” stay in the “Word” daily. Spend time with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Let Him be the first that you speak to each morning and talk with Him, like I am speaking to you and contentment will follow. Yes contentment is in you through the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
Having Joy. You may not think you can get it. Simply put. It is a gift from the Lord. Just like discernment God can give you joy. You see joy is a little bit of heaven here on earth. It is a state of mind and sometimes God will give you a sample of it and allow you to experience it in your heart, soul and mind right here on earth. Through God’s word you can develop it. You must have a relationship with His Son Jesus Christ. No one comes to the Father ( God) accept through His only Son, Jesus Christ.
If you want to experience Joy, remember it is a work in progress. Build your relationship with Jesus Christ and ask Him to release the Joy of God’s kingdom in your heart. The world will not change, but in the mist of turmoil. You can experience the Joy of our Lord, yes right here on earth.
John 3:16- For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, who so ever believes in Him shall have eternal life.
Apparently Mick Vick and LeSean McCoy had a 40 yard race in practice and Mike Vick won. As reported by the Birds 24/7, McCoy has taunted Vick, calling him Old Man for quite some time. So Vick took him up on a race. According to those in attendance Mike Vick all 32 years old defeated the 24 year old McCoy. Vick is known to be insanely fast, and apparently he still has what it takes. Just another reason that Chip Kelly is probably salivating at what Mike Vick has to offer.
Let’s see bravery is to stand up and stand tall, confront the villain and win. Don’t ever back down. But the most magnificent Man to ever walk this earth, Jesus Christ gave us a different take. What is courage? Could it be the ability to turn the other cheek, go the extra mile without retaliation? Could it be the ability to stand up for the downtrodden people in this world? Could it be the ability to love and forgive those who spitefully misuse you? Yeah, for some that’s a hard pill to swallow. It contradicts all that we are taught. Yet it takes a courageous person to go against the grain and follow these precepts. That’s what Jesus taught us. As we learn more about Him, we learn to be more like Him. Look to Jesus and the Cross to learn how to walk with Him and for Him in His courage.
