FAITH: LEARN IT... UNLEARN IT... RELEARN IT



🌿 If there be contradictions to life vs. His word, that is NOT His fault. It's us who create or form our lives by our thoughts, words, and deeds.. both good and bad. Know it or not but we receive or block blessings by the strength of our FAITH or by the lack of it. It's all there --- the spiritual power is ours... the blessings are all there ready for our taking. All that we have to do is act upon it.

🌿🌿 Here's what I've been taught about FAITH.  LEARN it and make it your strength..... UNLEARN that which destroys it.....  RELEARN to remember it.

🌿🌿🌿That, incidentally, is our job description and we are asked to do our job well day by day. God even put up a sign which says -- WORK IN PROGRESS. That's us. That speaks also for the rest of life and living.

🌿🌿🌿🌿 'Hope you're all having a pleasant and blessed weekend. God bless you all!

A LIE WOUNDS HEARTS



My best friend was on the phone but my eyes were on the clock. It was getting late in the evening. Very late. Yet leaving was not on my mind. She was sad. I felt it but more than that.... wounded deep. And the scars wouldn't heal. Two .. three years have gone now .. her husband passed and left her with a broken heart. The wound created ran deep, her heart scarred for life, I guess. Today she was still hurting.

πŸ˜” "Bakit, Len, ba't nya ginawa sa akin yun?" (Why did he do that to me?) 😢

I sat there, speechless.

☘🌿☘
A lie wounds hearts. Deeply. Unmercifully breaks the vessel of trust into smithereens. Beyond repair.

EVERY MOMENT IS A GOD-GIVEN GIFT. REMEMBER.


 Yes indeed! 
This speaks well on the subject.
πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ’•⚘🌷



HONESTY -- ONE TRUE PRECIOUS LEGACY


πŸŒ³πŸŒ·πŸŒ³πŸŒ·πŸ€ 
This one precious treasure we can, must, and should leave our children. 

Titles, power, position, wealth --- these can't give authentic joy and happiness where it matters most. Yes, they have their uses but only in this life .... and should be led by true wisdom and by the Spirit. Come your time, you can't bring these temporal riches to your grave. 

But honesty ---- can take you to the gates of heaven and up to the King's Holy Throne. The legacy you leave behind will live on in the hearts of your children.. and in generations following.
 πŸŒ³πŸŒ·πŸŒ³πŸ€πŸŒ·☘



IT'S A JOURNEY -- A TIME PUT THERE FOR ALL THE STAGES OF LIFE


🌳🌳🌳🌳 
It's a journey.... a time put there for all the stages of life. Whatever stage you're in right now, be in it with mind body and soul. Live it with all of you. 
🌳
 And if there is any rule you must remember:    Don't lie...... to yourself, to anyone, and particularly to your God.
 πŸŒ³πŸŒ³πŸŒ³πŸŒ³



HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED?


It's not what you get or receive but what you put out there to the world which truly defines you. It can be your good... or your bad but it's you. People will remember you by that. Ask yourself then - How do you want to be remembered?
☘☘☘☘☘☘☘☘☘☘☘☘



EVERYTHING COMES FOR A REASON


πŸŒ·πŸ’•πŸŒ·πŸ’• 
What better way to live your days. Everything comes for a reason. With a shared goal:   That you grow in courage, wisdom, faith, hope, joy, and love. For a better you.

FAMILY. -- OASIS IN A BUSY WEARY WORLD





--- This is amazing .. a green garden flanked by tall skyrocketing buildings all around. A refreshing green oasis in the midst of all that concrete. Rare beauty that connects straight to the senses and the soul.πŸŒΏπŸ¦‹πŸŒΏπŸ¦‹πŸŒΏ

πŸ’•Yeah, a pleasant day spent with family. This world and life and work may keep you glued to it, true. But always, and I say always, make time for your family. Create those precious moments which unfailingly bring a smile to your face with every remembrance. Like a huge lighted teddy bear....πŸ€— or a scrumptious plate of sesame chicken noodles at a Japanese restaurant😘....or giggling through a misstep☺ Every little thing in there create those golden memories. πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ’•

πŸ€—Create memories. Life is all about creating them.⚘πŸ’•⚘πŸ’•

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF FIRST ABOVE ALL

---------- About a few days ago, I was on the phone with a close friend kidded each other with the thought that the day of hearts was fast approaching. Well, when one is older or much older like we both are.. Valentine's Day is remembered with an undeniable smile or two. It never fails every time.

The she kidded me with "Hey what would you say to someone in love?"

😊I gave out a hearty laugh and said "Are you kidding me?! What's that question!?"

"Answer it..." she added with a teasing tone in her voice.

😊 . Okay, dear friend, tell me yours next okay? Anyway for what it's worth, here's what I think...... 😁

🌿🌿 Before anything else, make sure you know what love is. Not knowing that is the start of all relationship problems.

🌿🌿-- Don't come in when you're not too sure about yourself. This is not a here today and gone tomorrow thing. That might be truer in youth as the young always love to experiment.

🌿🌿-- Come in with who you are, bring the core of your heart into the moment. Don't even try to be what you are not. Nor do I want any Jekyll-and-Hyde games.

🌿🌿-- See me as a treasure worthy of your time, of your life. Not as something you would show off to your friends (or hide from them) and later leave on the shelf like you would your car in the garage.

🌿🌿-- Don't try to change me into your imaginary dream or lover. I am real - warts and all. I may have pimples on my face... heavy in big-size clothes... crooked teeth... pug nosed... and walk with a limp. See me as I am.. authentic and true even in my flaws.

🌿🌿-- Respect the people in my life, imperfect as some of them may be. Family, colleagues, and friends too. They are part of me as I am part of them. Welcome them into your circle as I would welcome yours into mine, too.

🌿🌿-- Don't heap your biases or prejudices on me (nor I you). Rather let's try to agree to disagree. After all, we are made differently from each other, by divine design.

🌿🌿-- Remember to put on your best manners, character, and personality with our every encounter. But be real. Nice, true, and real.

🌿🌿-- Be true to yourself. Only then can you be true to me, too.

*******
Okay, there you go. Be ready with your own list, mi amiga! Chat again soon😁

HOPE -- IS HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE


-- Here comes the sun.....🌝☀️🌞 Yeah.. and warms a chilly breezy🌬 morning walk. But it looks like I'll be getting tons of blue skies today.

😊 As I headed for home, saw this stump of an old tree. Apparently an old tree as its bark looked dry, withered, weary, and worn. But then again, right at the top grew young tiny branches ... with tiny leafy green leaves! Smiling at the rising sun.🌞 

🌳 Life from an old tree. H-o-p-e!❤ I guess it's telling us..........Hope is how you go through your day and life. 

❤ Dear God, thanks for the lesson and an awesome morning walk!
