Attitude Adjustment

Proverbs   19 – 19

A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment : for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.

1 Peter 4 : 12 – 14

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you :

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings ; that, when his glory will be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye, for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you : on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

Some people need an attitude adjustment when they talk about sick people. I have heard people say that the person got the kind of illness he deserved in life. Christ suffered greatly for our sins and he certainly did not deserve the punishment that he was dealt. God does not punish his loved ones with horrible diseases it is just part of nature that eventually we get illnesses  and diseases that will eventually kill us.

I cannot stand it when people are so rude and impolite to people that are dying from a horrible illness. The person that has the disease is actually a wonderful, kind,caring and compassionate human being. People try to categorize people into neat little packages they  think they know how to unwrap and what makes that person the way they are.

Those of you without sin let you cast the first stone and as you already know no one is without sin. Diseases and illnesses come to us in all of our life’s stages. We did not ask for the disease or illness to stand out in the crowd we want to blend in with the crowd just as we did when we were teenagers.

Do not judge or make fun of ill or sick people you will be their yourself someday and probably a lot sooner then you ever imagined possible. Show the love of God to the sick and ill so they can find peace in this world before they pass on.

Resilient

You have to be resilient to succeed in this World. You must not let peoples words or actions dwell inside of you. keep moving your life along in a positive direction. Be active in life belong to groups that lift you up and motivate you to get the most that you can out of your life.

Do things that will help others as that will help you become more resilient. By helping other people with their problems your problems become less significant. Stay spiritually connected to God as he helps us each and everyday of our lives on Earth. Don’t worry about small insignificant problems as you will be able to solve them with time and thought.

Bounce back from adversity as soon as you can before it follows you around constantly and consumes you. Tell yourself you can do it even if you think you may not be able to do it. A positive frame of mind can produce much were a negative frame of mind accomplishes nothing.

Always put your best effort into everything that you do. By giving your best you will receive a great gift of accomplishment. Take pride in your work and put your heart and your soul in your work and others will admire your work for years to come.

God wants us to be resilient. Jesus died for our sins so that we may live again in heaven. Live your life on Earth as how you would live your life in heaven. Always have a good, kind, caring, and compassionate personality that others can see in you everyday.

Help others when help is needed and help them feel resilient from the storms in their life. Go to church on the  Sabbath day to praise God for helping you be more resilient in your life.

Dependable

Are you dependable ? Are you there when your friends or family need you ? I hope you answered yes to these two questions. Dependability is a large part of life that affects many people besides yourself.

What would you do if  you went to an emergency room and everyone had called in sick for the day. You would be in dire shape or die before the day was over. You need to be accountable to yourself and others. Accountability starts with you and your actions speak volumes about you.

If you are not dependable on a job you will get fired and your chances of finding another good job will be slim to none. You cannot show up on a job whenever you feel like it. Restaurants need waiters, cooks, etc. to run a restaurant successfully that people will want to return to in the near future. If everyone just worked on the days they felt like working our economy would go into a tail spin. Dependable people are a must to keep things moving and flowing along in the business world and in life in general.

When I go to a store and they are supposed to be open at 8 AM they better be open or I will never return to that store again. I do not like waiting for people as they are stealing precious hours from my life. Life is too short to wait around for someone that is never on time or dependable. There is no excuse for being late unless an unforeseen circumstance arouse.

Dependability is not what is used to be. You should treat other people like you want to be treated. I am sure that you do not like to wait around for people so why should people wait around for you. Have respect and accountability for your actions and if you are late for unforeseen circumstances apologize and explain what happened to make you late.

Be dependable and accountable to God, your boss, family and friends as this will take you far in life.

Happiness

What makes you happy in life ? I love to travel and learn something new everyday. I love to visit with people in Rest Homes. I love their stories from the past. I find their lives and experiences very educational and informative. I love how their faces light up when you visit with them and bring a little sunshine into their lives.

20151210_180007

I love taking care of my pets and tending to their needs. My pets make me very happy. I love watching them play with toys and I just plain love watching them sleeping in comfort and ease. A pet purring or sleeping on my bed at night makes me very happy indeed. Pets love you just the way you are and you do not have to try to impress them.

20170716_210308

I am happy when I read a history book in my hammock and listen to the birds gently singing in the trees. One of my pets lays under the hammock while I read and she keeps me company while I read. I love to work outdoors at mowing  the lawn, gardening, weed wacking and much more.

People that share the same interest that you do are wonderful to be around and they bring great happiness into your life. Wonderful friends are necessary to have great happiness in your life. A strong connection with God is an absolute to a powerful happiness with life in this World.

Wesley Church

You cannot get happiness from wealth or material possessions. The things in nature are the things that will give you the most happiness down the road in life. People, animals, plants, mountains and things made by the hand of God are the key to happiness today and everyday in your life. God bless you with happiness in all that you do for others for you will be rewarded greatly  and in many many ways.

Home Memories

Leviticus 27 : 14

And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto the Lord, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad : as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand.

Proverbs 24 : 3 – 4

Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established,

And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

The old saying says home is were the heart is. My home sanctify’s me as I love every nook and cranny in my home. I have so many pleasant memories in my home. My Grandparents built the home that I have lived in almost my entire life. I have lived on my building site my entire life. I love walking around the yard, gardening, lawn mowing and much more. I used to follow my Grandfather around the farm and later on I followed my Father around the farm and learned how to repair many items by observing my Father at work.

20170726_202712

I have fond memories of eating breakfast and having coffee with my Grandparents. My Grandfather used to keep wintergreen mints in the cupboard and he would always give me one to eat when I came over to visit. I had a toy box at my Grandparents house and I still have the plastic doll that I used to play with. I would generally eat Cheerios for breakfast at Grandpa and Grandmas house.

I remember the Christmas dinners that we used to have and all of the wonderful family gatherings that we used to have at our home. Home is a place of happy and wonderful life long lasting memories. A home has laughter, love,joy,peace and hope in it from all the people that have enriched your life by coming into your home and sharing their life with you.

Home is were you have family time and talk over the days activities at the end of the day. You have love and concern for each others needs. You make each other smile in a happy home and all that enter your home are glad that they came. Peace and happiness may it fill your home for all of your days.

Life Is About Serving People And Lifting Them Up

Visit people often and help them and put a smile on their face.  Hold doors open for people and great them with a firm handshake. It is so rewarding to give people a gift that they were not expecting.

Do something special for your friends. Call up your friend and invite them on the spur of the moment to go for a drive or out to eat. You will make your friend happy and you will be happy also. Spend quality time with your friends and don’t miss a moment of your time together.

Wesley Church

I love visiting with people in the rest home or in assisted living. The people I visit with enrich my soul with wonderful lessons on what life is really all about. We can learn a great deal form our elders and other people that we visit with, We all have our ups and downs in life it is how we handle them that makes all the difference in the World how our life turns out.

Do not dwell or live in the past as you can not change its outcome. Make new and fond memories in others lives and in your own. Look at things in perspective and never lose your focus on what is truly important in life. We should serve God, community, family, friends and strangers. A friend in need is a friend indeed as the old saying goes.

An illness in my life was a blessing in disguise. It has made me into a more outgoing and caring person. I have become a lay minister in my church. I see things differently then I used to. I enjoy visiting with people and having them tell me some of their lives stories. There is always someone who is in worse shape then you no matter what your illness or situation is.

 

My goal is to help brighten or enrich peoples lives and put a smile on someones face everyday and to be kind, compassionate, caring and to be an awesome listener and to learn something new each and everyday and to share my knowledge with others.

2014-10-12-09-13-37

God bless you each and everyday and never forget that you can always become a better and more outstanding you that will make God and your family proud of the person you are today.

What Grade Would You Give Yourself In Life ?

Have you done everything or accomplished everything in life that you had to do or wanted to get done? Have you worked at your goals in life and have you left the world in better place as far as what you have done with your life? We all have thoughts to ponder as we try to figure out the correct path to follow in our life. With Gods help and love we can accomplish most things that we set out to do.

Are you working on the mission that God has set for you ? Let God be your compass and your guide with your path in life. Be kind, caring, compassionate, loving, and very caring with other people. Always put yourself in the other persons shoes. Never judge someone as you have no idea whatsoever as to what they have gone through in their lifetime.

20150830_072601

Live each and every day to its full potential and do not waste any days because all of us have finite days on earth and a limited time frame to accomplish our purpose or mission on earth. Enjoy life, savor life, cherish life and spend quality time with family and friends. Do not make life more difficult than it has to be and don’t sweat the small stuff. In the whole scheme of life there will be hiccups now and then but don’t let them stop you from reaching your finish line.

How do we begin to grade ourselves in life ? Have we done good things and been kind and caring and helped spread Gods good works ?  If you can answer yes you are definitely heading toward a high grade in life.

Life is wonder-less and glorious  and a constant journey to learning and understanding and bettering ourselves and each other each and everyday. Follow the path God has set for you and you will be filled with the grace of God.

Embrace Your Illness Do Not Let It Empower You

Illness comes to knock on all of our doors eventually. Illness does not care if your door is locked it just burst in the very moment you do not expect it. Be ready for illness in your life and embrace it. You take control of your illness to the best of your ability. Find things to do that you like to do and travel and get out as that will occupy your mind and give you new things to think about.

boat-house

 

Never sit around and just concentrate on the illness that you have as that is when it will empower you. Try to get out and live your life the best that you can  with the illness that you have and then you will empower your illness.  Never think  poor me as all of us have health battles to empower in life.

Find new hobbies and new things to do when you cannot possibly  do all of the things that you used to do. Read books, enjoy the great outdoors, write, surround yourself with friends and let God be your guide in life. Find a cause to support and help others that our fighting health battles.

20150831_072830

Only you can take control of your life. If you tell yourself in life that you cannot win chances are you won’t. Make positive changes in the World everyday and embrace your illness as you may find  a new you that is also an improved you. You may find yourself to be more outgoing or more creative.

God is always by your side even when you think he is not. God does not want any of his children to suffer. God will help you embrace your illness if you let him. Go out and help others embrace their illness and do not let them get empowered by their illness. God Bless You and strengthen you everyday.

Home

Home is a place where laughter abounds around every corner. Memories  are found in every nook and crevice of your home. We always come home for celebrations and funerals. Home is where the heart is. There is no place like home as the old saying goes.

We gather around the table on Thanksgiving day reflecting back on all the people in our lives that have made Thanksgiving day a day to be truly Thankful for. We are thankful for our families, friends, good health, a good job and so much more. God has blessed us with a bountiful harvest of family, friends, and good food and an everlasting tie to God that cannot be broken.

20150604_200323

We come home at Christmas time to be with our family and awesome friends, We reflect on all the people that have come and gone in our home throughout the years. We remember past Christmases as a child and what a joy it was to find that perfect Christmas present under the tree waiting for us to unwrap it and have fond memories of it yet today.

20151210_180007

A home changes throughout the years as people die and babies are born. A new family moves into your old home place to make fond memories of their own. They remodel your home to meet their current needs at the time. There is a constant circle in the chain of life. Life cannot go on without changes in it. We have to adapt to constant change in our life day after day if we are to survive in this World.

All of us come home to die or to be buried in our hometown. We all want to be in a place where everybody knows us and loves us for who we are. I  love my home, family, friends, pets and God my creator.
