Joy in Perseverance
I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking. ~ Og Mandino
Pick a big dream, a once in a lifetime dream, a song in your heart dream, a gift to mankind dream, a purpose-filling dream. Then run with it and persevere!
Feel gratitude for the time spent developing your talents. The joy is in the journey with its obstacles and surprises. When we reach the peaks on the first horizon, another horizon appears. What then?
Persevere again. Great missions are never achieved; they are lived. They continue to beckon us forward. They need constant tending, and in that tending are many small achievements. Beyond success is fulfillment more rewarding than any physical destination.
We are pulled forward purposely; life continuously seeks expansion. We were made to experience and participate in that joyful, creative flow of living energy. It's music is vigilance, and we are its dancers.
To persevere is to move in alignment and in harmony with life.
When you feel like your journey is becoming long and difficult, recall these enduring words spoken by John Quincy Adams (1767-1848): "Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish."
Ask yourself these questions: What is my personal journey?
What am I firmly committed to accomplishing during my lifetime?
What has stopped me from completing my goals in the past?
What do I need to believe to consistently work toward my goals and develop the habit of perseverance?
What joys do I experience each day while living the purpose I intend to fulfill?
What will I realize when I have completed my ultimate mission?
Whatever the answers, persevere. The God-given gifts inside you will carry you forward!

Anam Chara - Living A Life Of Value
Much of our lives we spend comparing what "me" has with what "you" has. Usually this is to the detriment of "me." We take our values from the world of the visible and ignore the values of the invisible. We build our sense of self on the sifting sands of fortune.
Win Your Own Lotto
When people talk about enrichment, they are usually thinking of financial enrichment. (Show me the money!) But, we can enrich many other aspects of our lives too such as: spiritual, mental, physical, and social, as examples. Winning the multi-dollar lotto is not impossible, but are you spending your life waiting for your fortune to come to you? For those of you that feel powerless at work, you have more control over your destiny than you think you do.
Sissys Show of Support
I had been fighting with the software program that I used to build my website. The software program had a bug in it and would occasionally anger the main brains of my computer. Without warning, my computer would lock the program shut and forbid me to enter the website's file. I never knew from day to day which time I saved the file and closed it would be the last time I'd be able to open it. It didn't happen very often, but when it happened, it was like the file no longer existed. My computer had put an invisible prison wall around it and I was no longer allowed to enter in and work within the file. I would have to recreate the website from scratch every time this happened.
Go On ! Give your Enemy a Hug
Another preposterous idea from yours truly, even the thought makes some people shudder.

In the Eyes of a Child
It was way past 10:00 pm when I came home from a grueling day of schoolwork and extracurricular activities. The wind was rustling about overhead as I paced through the door of our humble abode. I moved towards the nearest couch and plumped myself to rest. Defeat and exhaustion filled my frame as I laid back against the soft cushions. But then I remembered our Hematology project which was due the next day. Galvanized, I scrambled off my feet and immediately headed towards the personal computer situated on the other side of the room. Just then, my little brother Michael dashed out of his room and came straight at me. He was holding a pen on his right hand and a piece of paper on the other.

Turning Your Life Over To God and Trusting Him To Lead You Is Like . . . . .
. . . . . riding a roller coaster for the very first time. You've heard things about roller coaster rides, but what you heard depended on who was doing the telling. From some people (usually kids, or chronological adults who remained kids at heart and kept their iron stomachs) you heard glorious stories about the thrilling climbs and descents, about the twists and turns and maybe even roll-overs. Their words and facial expressions and body language were filled with exhilaration and excitement. Even if they didn't tell you outright, you just knew from listening to them that they would jump at the chance to do it again and again and again. From other people, such as older folks, the faint-at-heart, etc., you heard about wrenched backs, whiplash, and the inevitable nausea.
"How are you doing?" you ask. There's a pause before the reply. "You don't really want to know." The eyes look down. The body language says, "If you turn and walk away, I won't blame you."
Who is My Mother?
Text: Matthew 12:46-50, Mark 3: 31-35, Luke 8:19
The blaring sound leapt under Jerry's skin and strangled him awake in an instant. His eyes popped open in terror and for a darkened moment he forgot where he was.

Reach Your Dreams
About fifteen years ago I was rummaging through some old boxes in my basement when I discovered a stack of poems that I had written during my childhood. As I began reading, I discovered a long-forgotten world ? one that sang with romance, adventure, and mystery. It was a world of princesses, heroes, and castles, where the princess was always rescued and the dragon always slain.
