By default,

most of us have taken the dare

to simply survive.


Get through.

For the most part,

we live numb to life –

we’ve grown weary

and apathetic

and jaded … and wounded.

As 2014 comes to close in a few short days,

remember tomorrow is a new day,

another opportunity to pursue your dreams.

 Every day is a new day to begin your life.

 Don’t waste it on yesterday’s disappointments.

 Old age is no excuse.

 Too young is not an excuse.

 What is a viable excuse?


Life hadn’t turned out

for George Bailey as he planned

in the classic movie,

“It’s a Wonderful Life.”

 He thought in his desperation,

he would end it all.

Many were praying for him

and a guardian angel was sent to rescue him.

 In his heart-rending plea,

he cried out it was better

that he was never born.

 His wish was granted.

He got to see his town,

friends and family without him.

 The angel told him,

“You see George,

you really had a wonderful life.”

He came to the realization

that he wanted to live again.

“In anguish he cried

“I want to live again!”




Myron Niesley, California tenor, is called the hightest-paid radio singer because he receives five pounds for singing one note- the final and top one of a theme song, which others in the chorus cannot hit so perfectly.

God has just one person to come at the right moment;

a place which no one can fill but that person and at that time!


Toil-worn I stood and said,

“O Lord, my feet have bled,

My hands are sore,

I weep, my efforts vainly poor.

with fainting heart I pray of Thee,

Give some brave other, work designed for me”

But my Lord answer made,

“O child of Mine,

I have looked through space and searched through time,

There is none can do the work called thine.”

Soul-sick I knelt and cried,

“Let me forever hide

My little soul

From sight of Him who made me whole,

My one small spirit in the vast,

Vast throngs of like mean myriads, present, past!”

But my Lord answer made,

“O child of Mine,

I have looked through space and searched through time,

But I find no soul is like to thine!”

There is only one you.

There never has been and never will be another you.

You are so special the Lord cherishes you.

He doesn’t want to lose you.


“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,”

saith the LORD,

“thoughts of peace, and not of evil,

to give you an expected end.” 

Jeremiah 29:11




Purpose and meaning

“I believe that nothing

that happens to me is meaningless,

and that it is good for us all that it should be so.

As I see it, I’m here for some purpose,

and I only hope I may fulfill it.”

~Dietrich Bonhoeffer
