Hardships and Life

Do not be judgmental of people. You have no idea whatsoever of the battle scars and hardships they have gone through in their life. It might seem like a small thing to you but for them it has changed their outlook on life completely. We all have some battle scars that we carry with us everyday.

The baggage that we carry with us affects our relationships with other people directly and indirectly. We may put up a suit of armor when we meet someone for the first time. We may think the other person has one up on us and we must be on guard at all times for self preservation.

Being made fun of or picked on stays with you. You wonder will it happen to me again soon. If you cannot treat a person as you want to be treated stay away from that person and let them live their life in peace and harmony. Teasing is sometimes a form of bullying if it goes on too long.

If you do not like how someone dresses they may not like how you dress either. We have the right to choose our own attire as we see fit. We tend to wear clothes that we feel comfortable in and warm in. Some of us want the latest and trendiest fashions while the rest of us don’t really care about fashion trends. Fashions come and go.

You have no idea what a persons home life is like or what their job is like. Some of us get the ideal job in life while others get a job that they can barely make ends meet. If your mate has a horrible job they will not feel like cooking, doing chores and other household repairs. Let them rest and relax for awhile and talk over your day with each other. treat yourselves to a night out on the town once in awhile.

Always remember you have no clue whatsoever as to what a person has had to endure or go through in their lifetime. Some people can bounce back from adversity and other will carry the load on their back forever. Be kind, caring and considerate of other peoples feelings and remember only God can judge someone.

Stormy Weather In Life

Some days of your life will be stormy and threatening as the weather is. Will you seek shelter from the storms of life or get sucked up in its vortex.

When you are feeling like your life is whirling out of control faster and faster seek help. Talk to friends about your problems as they may have the perfect solution to get you out of the vortex that you are in. Ask God for guidance in your life often. If necessary talk to a counselor as they have dealt with many different problems and situations in their career.

Never stay out in the storm too long for you may be swept away in its torrents. Seek a hobby, go on a trip to get away for awhile, change your career or whatever it takes to get you out of lives storms. Remember things will never get better until you ask for and embrace help for yourself.

 

Get a game plan for your life. Think where do I want to be ten years from now. What is the fastest possible way I can improve my life. Pray to God for guidance with your life. Ask God what can I do to serve you and others and help my self get out of this vortex that keeps pulling me in.

God wants all of his children to be happy and productive in life. There are all kinds of ways to be productive in life. Reach out to others and help them each and everyday. Volunteer , visit with people, and get a job that helps other people. Be one of Gods wonderful stewards.

Always reach for the stars in life as you rise up to be the person that God wants you to be. Life is short do not ponder. The storms will pass over you if you let them. Do not dwell on past storms in your life for clear skies are ahead for you with God by your side.

Home and Family

We love the comfort of our home. We feel safe and loved when we are at home with our family around us. After we come home from a trip the comforts of home await us. Home is our happy place where we can relax and unwind after a hard days work.

Home awaits the return of the young soldier who has gone to war. His parents, wife and kids welcome him home with open arms and hugs and kisses. He feels safe and loved once again in the comfort of his home and family. He can go to sleep in his favorite recliner or watch the game on TV. Friends come over and they have a cook out and share their corner of the World with each other.

The college student is happy to return home on Holidays to get together with family and friends. He enjoys eating his Mothers home cooked meals once again. He goes to sleep in his old familiar room and bed. All of his old toys and possessions are exactly as he left them in his room. We love home where everything is familiar and welcoming.

We always want to return home because of all the memories that our home has for us. We remember family gatherings with our Grandparents. We always loved Grandma’s homemade pies, cookies, jello, cakes and much more. Grandpa would always have fresh wintergreen mints for me to eat that I loved. Grandma would always have a red jello with cut bananas in it ready for us to enjoy every Sunday of the week.

We come home to die when we are old. We feel comfort in our hometown and our family church. We want to buried in our hometown cemetery. We want the minister of our family church to take care of our funeral service once we have passed away. We want our family and friends at our funeral service. When we have let our earthly home we will live in our heavenly home with God and his Angels. Home is always their for us.

Mediocre

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.

upper range light

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: cattaleswithlaura.com 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.

Struggles

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.
