One Random Act of Kindness

You know who is the most excited about this time of year?

Satan that’s who!

You see Satan loves all the happiness and joy being had by so many.  It is precisely that joy that brings sadness to the hearts of so many others.  Individuals who have lost a love one.  Those who are dealing with health or family issues.  People struggling with a housing or financial hardship or just those who truly have no one to share the holidays with. For them the holidays can be a time of sadness and loneness and that’s the window of opportunity Satan see as a chance to break their faith.  But as a Christian we are warriors for Christ and we can help keep old Satan at bay.  Try being extra nice to those around us, friends and strangers.  Smile at a stranger.  Take a day and volunteer at a homeless shelter. Take an afternoon and spend it with an elderly person who has no one else to spend time with. Call up a family member or friend you’ve haven’t spoken to in a while just to see how their doing.  Do whatever you can because if you are lucky enough to know joy and happiness this holiday season by committing just one random act of kindness each day between now and Christmas you would be amazed at just how much of an impact you may have on someone’s life.

Memories of Us

It’s been a minute hasn’t it been, but there you were in my dreams again tip toeing into my subconscious when I thought I had forgotten all about you.  I’m not going to lie seeing you again brought a smile to my face,  all the good memories we created together flooding my mind.  It’s funny now to think there was a time that the thought of you and I, what we were and how that is no more made me sad. But that time has passed, I’m so much stronger now. Aware now of all the love that had always been afforded me by so many.  To finally understand that the love of the Lord is stronger than any love I could ever desire.  I’ve learned to embrace myself, to love myself. So yes now the memory of the happy times between us, and there were some damn good times, makes me smile for I accept now they were an essential part of the journey I’ve been on to being the person I am today.  Goodbye for now it was nice seeing you again and I hope you have found the happiness that you were a part of in me finding mine. 

Thursday

Good Morning all we wake to another day thanks to the Lord our God and that day is Thursday. Thursday! Yeah I know Thursday just that day you’ve got to grind through to get to Friday. But let’s make this Thursday one to remember. Go out be bold today. Do something you’ve been wanting to do but were to afraid too, as long as it’s legal 😄. Treat yourself to a gift, as long as it doesn’t break the bank.  Take that special someone to lunch or dinner. Buy that special someone roses for no reason other than to say I you love, yes that means you too ladies. Do whatever it takes because Thursday isn’t just that day you have to grind through to get to Friday Thursday can be whatever you want it to be. So make it great! 

My best friend, My strongest ally is the Lord

Each day I awake anxious to continue my conversation with you, to thank you for the chance to walk another day upon the Earth. I am encouraged in the belief that no matter where the day shall take me I never walk alone. Each day my life is little more enriched by the knowledge you are my savior and my soul burns with the light of a thousand lights knowing that because of my faith in you and your love for me nothing is impossible. I endeavor to let nothing or no one come between me and my faith. I am reassured in the belief that as I continue to give you praise and strengthen my faith in you nothing can diminish your love for me. I revel in the knowledge that I need not worry about earthly problems because you help carry my load and in your ultimate wisdom will bestow on to me the strength and courage to overcome.  I am fortunate enough to have found you for you are truly my best friend and my strongest ally and it is for that reason that I am truly blessed.

The power of music

Have you ever looked around at a concert and seen people of all colors and genders smiling, dancing and singing along. At that moment the race, gender, sexual orientation of the person next to them is irrelevant the only thing that matters is the beat surging through their souls. That’s the power of music. In its purest form it knows no boundaries and can fill a person’s heart with happiness. If there is a universal language it is clearly music maybe one day we can embrace each other the way we embrace music.

Our search is over

Our search is over. We have finally found each other. The hurt from past relationships having molded us into who we are today. Not two bitter souls but two individuals who learned from and gained strength from heartbreak. Two hearts that were broken having healed and ready to love again. We know that life is better when shared with someone we love who loves us back and it is through our past heartbreak that we appreciate each other that much more. Your very presence, the sound of your voice, the touch of your hand, comforts my very soul. It sometimes seem that we have known each other forever and while that isn’t true I can never see myself without you again. You are not simply my lover you are my best friend. The person who supports my dreams and keeps me moving forward in times of adversity. You always listen to me and provide me with a shoulder to lean on when needed. Each night I hold you close to my heart. Each morning I smile when your face is the first thing I gaze upon. Our love for each other so strong that others can just glance at us and feel it. Our search is over and I couldn’t be happier.

Your opinion of my happiness is not required

Can you look at me and judge me because I exude confidence and I am happy? The simple answer is no. Your opinion is not required, your approval is not needed for me to be happy. What you must understand is that I am not confident because of a sense of arrogance. I am confident because I have a healthy belief in myself and my abilities.  It is this belief that allows me the freedom to know anything is possible when I put my mind to it and there is a world of possibilities waiting for me to take hold of them.  Knowing this makes me happy and I have earned the right to be. That is something neither you nor anyone else can take from me. I will not allow the negativity of others to sap the positivity that I exude. I will not let your unhappiness thrust on to me. I am who I am because of my belief in myself.  You can not judge me and you never will because I have already judged myself to be worthy of the happiness I enjoy.
