Smiles

A simple smile is worth more than a thousand words.

Smiles

Change a life with your beautiful smile.

The Race

The race; the epic battle of the tortoise and the hare. The timeless fable of an overconfident hare that was sure it could beat the slow moving tortoise.

The Race

While the story seems to be about the race; it is a metaphor about life.

Life is like a race; realistically, a marathon. It has a beginning and an end, with a lot of distance in between. So many things can happen along the way; obstacles can pop up, staying focused, pushing yourself when you hit the wall, and pacing yourself to finish.

Rushing to the end and trying to have, and accomplish everything in life is not always the important part of the race. Slow and steady, enjoying the run and scenery along the way, will bring far more pleasures to life.

It is not important how you start the race; but how you run the race and finish it that matters. Enjoy the race of life and all that it offers.

Bright Colors

Let your life and love be brighter than the worries of the day.

May your heart be filled with happiness and your palette filled with bright colors, so you may paint the world that you would like to live in.

Be the palette for the world to paint from.

Celebrate Life

Celebrate Life


Celebrate life at the start of each and every day that you wake up. Sing praises and count your blessings for the health you have, the breath you take, the steps you walk, the food you have, a place to live, transportation, money, employment, family, friends, and everything else that we take for granted.

Enjoy the life you have and the journey that you are on, no matter if you are in the valley or the mountain tops, and be grateful for it all.

Spread love, hope, and a positive attitude to everyone. Help all you can, anytime you can and be the example for others to follow. Tell people that you love them often and how important they are to you and to others. Forgive those that hurt you with words and actions and show them kindness and love.

Make your life, your family and friends more important than work and other things that may rob you of your joy.

Praise the Lord for all that He provides for you.

Celebrate the life that you have been blessed with.

Matthew 6:9‭-‬13 KJV

Acceptance of Others

Acceptance is a characteristic that all desire at some point in their lives. That feeling of approval that provides a sense of belonging.

Accepting someone for who they are, not for what they should be, or have; seeing the person for their physical being, their hearts and minds, their true inner self, and embracing them without expectations or judgement. Loving and caring for them, for their good sides and bad, their past and present lives, and supporting them no matter what, so that they may see and feel a true acceptance in life.

Being accepted without fear of judgment, condemnation, malice, failure and the sense of not measuring up can and will change a persons life.

Love and accept everyone as you would want them to do for you with an understanding, nurturing, kind heart and open mind.

Philippians 4:5 NIV
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

Being a Survivor

Being a survivor is far more than meets the eye.

It is a major event in peoples lives. For some, it is surviving tragic events, cancer, other illnesses, or the loss of loved ones. For others, it is surviving struggles with physical, mental and emotional impairments. Then there are those that are surviving daily challenges in life such as unemployment, loss of income or barely making it, having a place to live, taking care of and feeding a family, staying healthy and surviving what the world throws at them.

Surviving is deep-seated in each person that takes a lot of effort, willpower, fear, desire, strength that you did not know that you even had, and a willingness to face and overcome something that is far bigger than you.

Being a survivor is much more than winning; it is the beginning of a new journey in your life. It changes your life forever and opens your mind, heart and spirit to the blessings in life that we take for granted everyday and a side of yourself that you may not even realize existed. It humbles you, teaches you lessons, and makes you stronger than you have ever been. Own it! You deserve it!

Being a survivor is one of the greatest blessings and gifts that is given to us.

Isaiah 26:3 NIV
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

Dandelions are the parachutes of life

Dandelions are the perfect example of giving life after a collapse.

Dandelions

It is a beautiful and cheerful little flower that stands tall as if to be smiling at the world. It provides pollen for bees, food, and herbal remedies for humans, but yields far more to life. For as its life collapses and the beautiful flower dies, a new growth begins.

A beautiful white globe of winged seeds appears. Sitting waiting for the right timing, the right wind, to lift them from their stalks, and float them in the wind to their new and unknown destination.

A journey that is elegant and light, drifting without thought, gliding to the place that their seeds will land. Planting their seed into the ground to begin a new life for the world to see and enjoy.
A testimony to overcoming destruction and starting a new life.

They are the parachutes of life in the world and an example of new seeds of life being planted.
