Do you just put out a mediocre performance in life ? Mediocre is moderate quality work that is just run of the mill. Put out your best performance in all that you set out to accomplish in life and people will take notice that you paid attention to the various details in your job, your life and so much more.

Anyone can do a mediocre job and it shows up in all aspects of your life. I want to do an above average job that will last for years. Do not be indifferent take a stand and make valid points that will improve the environment, peoples lives and do things that people can benefit from for years to come.

Do not be a middle of the road person. If you do not move forward in life you will have missed out on a great deal of your life. Life is  about moving forward to bigger and better things. If you do not broaden your horizons in life eventually you run out of horizons and no one including you will know what you could have accomplished with the time that God gave you here on earth.

Jesus did not leed a mediocre life as he accomplished so very much while he was here on earth. He is our great redeemer and savior. He leed an exceptional life and he was not indifferent to other people. Jesus gave his life to save us from our sins. Jesus is unforgettable and inspirational. He cared deeply for people that were suffering and in pain and he helped them all at all cost. No task was too big for Jesus to accomplish. He helped the beggar on the street, the hungry, the downtrodden, sick people and anyone that needed compassion and kindness.

Set your sights high in life and never do a mediocre job. Do the kind of work that Jesus did to the best of your ability and remember to be kind, compassionate, loving, caring and bring hope, love, peace and joy into the lives of others everyday that you are  here on earth. God Bless you and go out and be one of Gods wonderful stewards.

Uplift and Enrich Peoples Lives

Remember to compliment people for a job well done or a service they provided for you. One compliment can make someones day a little bit brighter. Some people like to put people down. A true friend or kind person will never put a person down.


People have many great qualities and abilities that they should be complimented on. I think people that put others down do not feel good about their own situation in life so they put someone down to make themselves look better in their own eyes. It doesn’t take much of a person to put someone down. If you like to be complimented for a job or service that you performed you should extend that same kind of treatment to others.

God wants us to be kind and uplift people each and everyday of our lives. If you can’t think of anything good to say then keep your thoughts to yourself. We put our hearts and soul into our work. If you do not like something tell the owner discreetly and he will most likely correct the problem and make it right with you ASAP. Do not trash a business online as it has a ripple effect that will effect many more people then you ever imagined.

Tell your waitress that she did good job serving your table. Tell the man that trimmed your trees that your place looks so much better now. Compliment people and business’es that go the extra mile for you. Life is short and live the life you have as an exemplary citizen.



You enrich peoples lives by having a genuine concern for their well being. By sharing your knowledge with others, helping them, listening to them and sharing the good times and the bad times with them. Go out and empower people and compliment them and enrich their lives in many different and wonderful ways. Gods blessings to you and yours.

God And Doors

Many doors will be opened and closed for you in your lifetime. With God by your side you will be able to decide what doors should always remain open and what doors should remain closed. Take time with your decision as once a door is closed in your life it can be very hard to reopen it.

Doors are opened on new friendships. Try to always work out problems that may occur with your friends or new acquaintances. I never want to see a door closed on a friendship until you have done everything you possibly can to save the friendship. Relationships in life have to have  give and take in them in order to have them work. Relationships are not always easy to maintain. Do what the other person wants to do and do not have your way all of the time. Reach out to your friends and be genuine. Treat people with the upmost respect. Lift people up and never put them down.

Doors get closed on different chapters in your life according to your position in life, your health, your needs and wants in life. Decide if you you want more doors open in your life or you think it is necessary to close a few. Too many jobs or obligations on the table can be bad for everyone concerned. If you can not do justice to everything that you have to get completed it is time to close a door or two. Put 100 % effort into your jobs and your relationships with others as no one will be disappointed then. Life can be fast paced remember to slow down and smell the roses so to speak.

Remember to always keep you door open to God as he will take you far in life. Keep your old friends close to your heart and be open to new relationships in your life. As one door closes in your life another will open as the old saying goes. We will have many chapters in our life and many doors will be opened for us. Move forward in your life with good friends by your side and bring joy, peace, love and hope into others lives. God Bless you on your journey in life.

Look For The Positive In Everything If You Do Not Your Whole Life Becomes A Negative

If you look at the glass as half full it will always be half full even when it is full. There is always a silver lining if you only look for it. A sudden illness can be a blessing as you can analyze your life and make necessary changes before it is too late. You can teach others to embrace their illness and move forward in their life. Do things that you always wanted to do and felt that you did not have time to pursue in the past.

Negativity will swallow you up and devour you like a wolf devours its pray if you let it embrace you and control your life. Do not look at life as a negative as life is a gift from God. Positive things occur in everyone’s life some more than others but always embrace the positive moments and run with them to the finish line. Living positively can help you make positive and everlasting contributions to the World.

God will help you get through anything and everything that you will ever encounter in this lifetime. God knows what you need and he will give it to you when he feels the time is right. We are very impatient in life and we want things right now. Good things come to those who wait.


Some days it is hard to find a positive event. Think of one thing  every morning when you wake up that made a positive impact on your life or the life of someone you hold Dear. Think of an awesome vacation or an award that you won when you least expected it. Remember today is the day the Lord hath made let us rejoice and be glad in it.

I find life to be a positive everyday. Talking to and helping friends and others is a big positive in my life. I enjoy my feline family and watching them play with cat toys and their soft meows and purrs. I love writing Inspirationswithlaura, and about caring for cats on my website: and I also write about my travel adventures, restaurants and review pet products.

Learn something new everyday and live life to its fullest. Enjoy the great outdoors. Do what you love to do and what God has called you to do. I choose to live my life as a Positive as their is no time for negativity in my life. Spend time with family, friends and your loved ones. Go out and be positive and God bless you and yours.

Easter Memories

We would always go to church on Easter Sunday and we would generally go to the sunrise service. We would eat breakfast with our church family. After breakfast we would attend our church service.Our minister would always give a wonderful sermon about Easter. I would have on a new dress and a Easter bonnet on. My Mother would have  a new dress on and my Father would be dressed in his Sunday suit.

Christ and Easter

Christ died for our sins on the cross. No one can have a greater love for one than to lay down their life for one.   Christ is the reason we can know that our spirit or soul will be in heaven someday. Christ is risen. He has risen indeed. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Easter Gatherings

For lunch on Easter we would generally eat with our relatives. We would have a ham dinner, potatoes, vegetables, sweet potatoes, and dessert. While the adults would visit the kids would play board games. The youngest children would eat at the card table while the main table was reserved for the adults.

Easter and Children

Easter eggs would be hidden in the house for us youngsters to find. We would eat the candy inside of the plastic eggs. My Mother would help me decorate Easter eggs with various colors and designs on them. I had an Easter basket for years that my Grandmother gave me. I recently gave it to my young cousins children. I hope they will enjoy it as much as I did as a child. I had a stuffed Easter bunny and little baby chick toys.

Easter is a Time of Renewal

I eat out with friends or relatives after Easter Sunday worship now. Easter is a time of renewal and new beginnings. I enjoy tulips and Easter lilies and all of natures beauty each and everyday. I hope you and your family will make many memorable and Happy Easter memories. God Bless you and yours.

Do Not Procrastinate

Do not say that I will get that done tomorrow for none of us know for sure if we will have a tomorrow. Do not put off what you can get done today for another day. Make good use of your time and move along quickly and efficiently. Get together with a good friend today and spend quality time with them.

Get Up Early

Get up early in the morning and you will be very surprised by what you can get completed in just one day. Do some book work, house cleaning, grocery shopping, blogging, washing clothes, vacuuming, lawn mowing or snow removal depending on the season and then relax and read a book or work on a hobby.

Sitting around thinking about what you should do will not get the task at hand done. Start your projects early so you are not over taxed by having a vast amount of things you must get done all at once. Have a list of things you want to work on everyday and keep marking them off your list as they get fully completed.

Never Procrastinate

Never procrastinate as you may end up with a mountain of repairs and bills that have to be paid all at once. Keep a running list of things that you want to get fixed or remodeled in your home. Keep up on your car maintenance also to avoid very expensive car bills down the road.

God does not procrastinate as he listens to our thoughts and dreams everyday of our lives. God answers our prayers in a timely manner. God is our compass and guide on earth. Let God guide you to get together with your loved ones today to enjoy each others company. Let God help you stick to a schedule that will strengthen your faith and get all of your task done in a timely manner that will please others and God.

All of us have a struggle about something each and everyday in our lives. We may struggle with our feelings about a particular event or issue that has to be dealt with. We struggle with health, family and financial problems.

Life Can Be A Constant Struggle

Sometimes I struggle with trying to get the lid off a container of food or medicine. Putting a new piece of furniture together or figuring out your taxes can be very frustrating indeed. Balancing  family and work can be very difficult. Life is a constant struggle with something new and different each and every day. Without changes in our lives we would not evolve and we would be stagnant and dull. I want to learn new things and branch out and become more informed and in the now rather then staying in the past. The old saying goes  “nothing ventured nothing gained” and how very true that statement is.

At times we struggle with our own Christianity by saying why me when something bad happens to us. We must always remember all of us have different health problems and some are more serious than others are. God is always by our side and he knows our every thought and what we are going through. You are never truly alone with God by your side.

Breakdowns And Repairs

Our car can break down and we can be in debt for sometime until we get the transmission, engine or other damages paid off in full. We can have a major appliance breakdown,roof repair,tree damage, etc. If we save our money over time we will finely get these items paid off and be out of debt.

Remember God is Always By Your Side

Don’t let life’s daily struggles get the better of you. Talk things over with a trusted friend. Remember the trials of Job. God will help you with the many struggles we must all face in our lifetime. keep a positive attitude and let Gods light shine on you everyday.

Never Expect Something In Return For A Kind Deed

God Knows if you do something out of the goodness of your heart or if you just want notoriety. If you want notoriety for your kind deeds they are not really all that kind. Christian love is full of kind deeds for others. You help your neighbors out because you want to help them. You volunteer at organizations and at church because it makes you and other people feel better.

Memorials that remember our deceased loved one is a good way for people to remember them as long as possible. Memorials that help other people and enrich the lives of others are a wonderful gift to benefit mankind for many years to come.

If everyone wanted notoriety for every good deed that they did the World would be in a really bad place. People find out when you do good deeds and you do not need to blow your own horn. Anonymous gifts are the best kind of gifts for you to give to organizations. With a charity auction do not charge them to auction off their items after all it is a charity that no one should benefit from except the charity that helps those in need.

God knows all of your actions and why you pursue your actions. God never gives up on us even with all of our flaws and problems. God hopes that we do good deeds from the kindness of our hearts and not just because we want something.

Let there always be goodness and kindness in your heart that shines on the lives of others. Make someone extremely happy today and always. Go forth each day with a spring in your step and joy in your heart. Remember today is the day the Lord hath made let us rejoice and be glad in it. Let others have joy in their lives as their is enough hurt in the World without you being unkind to someone. Do kind deeds out of the goodness of your heart.

Active Christian

Are you an active Christian ?  Do you go out of your way to help someone in need ? Do you put a smile on someones face everyday ? Do you bring joy into peoples lives ?  I hope you can answer yes to all of these questions.

If someone is suffering try to ease their suffering to the best of your ability. Talk to people and comfort them with kind words of support and have empathy for them. The sound of someones caring and concerned voice can make all the difference in the world to the person you are talking too.

Help support worthy causes in your community any way that you possibly can. Help people in need in third world countries. Support charities in your hometown that help the less fortunate.

Surround yourself with like minded people and friends. Attend church and support your church in all the ways that you possibly can. Read your scriptures and study your Bible and practice the good works that God gives to all of his followers. Read a daily devotion and think about what you read throughout your entire day. Think about how you can apply the devotional reading to your day and how you can help others by what you read in your daily devotions book.

Greet every person that you see in church today if at all possible. Tell them I am happy to see you today and how was your week. Shake hands with people or give them  hug. Help people to feel that they are appreciated and loved with their Christian family. Christian fellowship is very important in your life and the lives of others.

Treat all people with the upmost respect in a loving, caring, kind, compassionate and Christian manner. People will notice and see Gods good works through you if you are a good Christian steward.

The Beacon In The Lighthouse

May everyday of your life have a beacon shining brightly in it as the beacon in the lighthouse does to protect and guide you everyday of your life. God is a beacon that shines brightly in ours lives every single day of the year.

Be a beacon in peoples lives. Help keep people on the right path in life by setting good examples for them to follow. Guide young people at an early age to be nice to each other and to respect others.

A beacon leads the ships to shore safely so they won’t get destroyed by the storms in the seas. The lighthouse beacon has saved many a sea faring people. Be a beacon to others and lead them to safety in the storms in life. There are many storms in life just as there are at sea. Be a good guide and don’t let any of your followers get lost in the shuffle. The shepherd always guides his sheep and watches over them so they won’ t get eaten by wolves or just plain wonder off and get lost completely.


A lighthouse beacon is a guide at night so no one will get lost at sea. It keeps everyone safe at sea and is like a night watchman. The lighthouse bacon protects the ships by from being torn apart from stem to stern. Without our friends acting as lighthouses in our lives we can get torn apart from stem to stern. Be that beacon kind of friend that others will turn to in the storms of their life.

door county lighthouse

Always let the light in your heart shine thorough so that others may see it and project their light onto the world also. Without light we would be in total darkness to the needs of the people we love or like, cherish, honor, respect and wish to comfort and support and help in the storms of life.
