Lessons I've Learned

There was time in my life when I allowed another’s lies to define who I was.        That was a lifetime ago; and that time has ended.        We learn, as Christians, to see Jesus when we look at people; but how many of us actually have that thought running rampant through our mind every second of our busy days?        My former mother-in-law never missed an opportunity to voice to my mother that she told her son he should…

From the Heart – What we all long for

Then, after you look at the picture below, you will see why it must have…

Ten Rules for Being Human by Cherie Carter-Scott

Ten Rules for Being Human Inspired by: Cherie Carter-Scott You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.” There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the   experiments that ultimately “work.” Lessons…
