Flaws

Flaws
What we think is a flaw, sometimes is what makes someone or something so very special.

Flaws

Flaws show up in many ways. Some are visual; like a crack, blemish, a mark, a chip, a knothole in wood, or a distortion in a pattern. Some are invisible that we only think we can see; then some are not flaws at all; but are something very beautiful that appears uniquely different.

At first glance we look and see something that we think is hideous, unsightly, or unworthy.

We tend to focus on the imperfections and flaws so much; that we miss the actual beauty that the flaw gives to the masterpiece itself.

Humans do the same thing with their lives. They focus on the imperfections and flaws that they see. They begin to see things that they think are flaws; extra wrinkles, love handles, gray hair, droops and sags, and a variety of other things that bring on anxieties and self-doubt.

No matter how much they fight against it and try to ignore the flaws, self-doubt creeps in; causing anxiety and distress. The battle to once again seek perfection, creates hurt, anguish, conjures blame, denial and resentment; that robs them of the joy and the actual beauty inside and out.

Our idea of perfection is not the same as the ideas of others and God’s; that we tend to ignore and not listen to.

Instead; we should realize the beauty in all the flaws and imperfections that we think we see. Knowing that we were created by an incredible, awe-inspiring Creator just as we were meant to be. Each and everyone, made similar, but very uniquely in our own ways, that creates the value and self-worth that is very special and very priceless.

Flaws are never bad; they are a blessing and a thing of beauty in the creation of all things.

Embrace your flaws; show the world and yourself how special you really are.

Psalms 139:14 NIV
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Balance your life

Balancing your daily life can be quite the task. With work, family, chores, children, school, hobbies, church, errands, and other outside distractions; days, weeks, and even months can become hard.

Balance your life

Prioritizing and finding the time to fit it all in can become extremely stressful: especially if you are doing it alone. Like a juggler; you can only have so many balls in the air; before you begin to drop some.

Understanding that it is only possible to fit so many things into one day and that some things must wait is the key. Removing things that are not essential; is perfectly fine and does not make you a failure.

Being humble is ok; and asking for help from friends or family can save your sanity, your health and your family.

Find that balance for a healthier, happier and more stress-free life.

Psalms 68:19 NIV
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.

Rainbows

Rainbows are a sign of hope, peace, tranquility, a sense of calming, and witnessing the beauty after the storm.

Rainbows

The young and some old; think of that magic wish or a pot of gold and good fortune at the rainbow’s end, and some just admire the amazing splendor of it all.

For some, a rainbow now carries a personal symbolic meaning that represents inclusivity and diversity, an all-encompassing image of love and friendship.

For others it is a reminder of God’s love for us and His covenant and promise that the waters will never again flood and destroy all life.

The peace and tranquility one finds in a rainbow is unique within each person and the belief and sense of comfort that comes from it.

The song “Somewhere over the rainbow”; that was sung by Judy Garland, Israel Kamakawiwoʻole (IZ) and others; is a comforting reminder of hope and dreams that can come true.

Genesis 9:13 NIV
I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

A bad day

Sometimes a bad day is just a bad day.

A bad day


Don’t let it consume you or define you.
Rise above it; turn it around; and move forward. A good attitude and determination will bring you through all things.

Every day is a new day and a fresh start to your life. Live it the best you can and enjoy each moment of it. Life is too precious not to.

Prune your life

Pruning branches on a tree or plants; help the trunk to grow stronger, shaping it to become healthier, grow better; yielding better leaves, fruit or flowers.

Prune the branches in you life, shaping it to produce a healthier, happier and more vibrant life.

Matthew 7:18 NIV
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

Vision

Vision comes in all forms; from the ability to physically see; to something seen in the mind (as in a dream or spiritual experience).

Vision

Vision can be a beautiful or impressive sight; the power of imagination to design or plan something; to imagine what the future of something could be, and the endless possibilities of your mind.

The power of sight is a wonderful thing; the power of vision is an amazing gift.

Let your vision open your world and unlock your potential deep inside.

Remove old baggage, unnecessary items, the confusion, and the complexities to experience a cleaner, happier, healthier, and a more peaceful journey.

Keep it simple and enjoy your blessings of a new life. Always K.I.S.S. “Keep It Simple Silly”.

Philippians 4:19 NIV
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Servants Heart

Serve others quietly with a gracious heart and a lack of expectations or hidden agendas.

Servants Heart

Acts of servitude, kindness and love will change lives and the world. It is not the size of the deed or action; but the thought that lasts forever.

Live your life with a pure servants heart that is filled with desire, compassion, a mindset and a desire to selflessly help and bless the lives of others.

Ephesians 6:7 NIV
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people,

Small Steps

Small steps lead to big things; that open up a world of possibilities.k

In our daily lives; small steps; one foot in front of the other; no rushing; no haste, slow and steady; can be a great guideline for living life.

American astronaut Neil Armstrong took the first small step on the moon in 1969.
A step that opened the doors to information about the moon and space. A step and a quote that has been remembered to this day.

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” ~Neil Armstrong

Let your small steps lead you to your big journey one step at a time. The rewards are endless.

Proverbs 16:9 NIV
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Proverbs 16:9 NIVLohttps:rd establishes their steps.
