Tolerance is your gift to the world.

 I play the silly Facebook quiz games and occasionally read a horoscope or two. πŸ˜‰. They mean nothing to me. It’s harmless fun!  I’ll even shake that Magic 8 ball!  It’s all in good fun.  I do not take stock in the outcome of a “ game”.   I  do, however, follow and believe in scripture.  I even subscribe to and read often alldevotion.com. 
It just seems to be spot on some days and leads me to look for the right verses to focus on for the day/days ahead. So, when today’s blog title came up as my God wants you to know... I was amazed at how fitting it was for my life at this time. 
Slow to anger. That’s what God wants and that’s who I am. I once taught with someone who asked me why I forgave so readily and easily.  That’s simple!  He wants me to and that’s an easy one to obey! Anger towards another won’t hurt that other person anyway. For you, it will fester. Let it go!
Today my devotion read as the following and I couldn’t agree more!  Thanks alldevotion!

“Angela, today God wants you to know that tolerance is your gift to the world. 

It is easy to respond to hurts and frustrations with anger. The real measure of communion with God is tolerance.”

I Start my Day with Lemon Water

We all want our days to go well.  How do we achieve this?  Start your day on a positive note and set your good intentions for the day ahead. Breathe goodness into your day right away. Because...you may wake up and your back is sore from sleeping funny; or your head is focused on the negativity you feel dragging you down in one way or another.  Stop.  Listen to your body and quiet the demons in your head. You have the key to this day’s happiness. Find it. Keep it on an imaginary keychain you place near the space you wake.  For me it’s lemon water!  I start my day with lemon water!  This is how I know it’s going to be a good one!

You Only Have One Life...Choose Wisely!

“Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey.  They don’t need to, it’s not for them.” - Joubert Botha
Every person should take time to reflect on what they really want out of life.  Many want only what they think they are supposed to want. Many people spend their entire lives following the conventions of society and end up unhappy and wondering...”Is this all there is?” You must make the time to sit with yourself and really think what it is you want out of life.  Have you had big dreams, but thought that they were out of reach? What do you want to accomplish? How can you make a difference in others’ lives? 
Identifying exactly what will give your life meaning will take time and is subject to change as you grow wiser.  You have the power to change your life and really live!  Emerson said “Dare to live the life you have dreamed of for yourself.”
Step 1. Think.  Reflect. Step 2. Identify YOUR dreams. Step 3. Take action. Society is messed up!

Grief to Grateful

Rewind...back up in time...I’m sorry for not being empathetic enough when someone I care about had lost someone they loved either through death or divorce.  I didn’t truly or fully understand grief until my dad passed away two years ago this month.  Yes, I told you I was sorry and I was. I told you to hold on to the memories and you continued to do that, as do I. But seriously knowing the pain? Nope, nada, I didn’t know how deep was your pain. Now I do.  You see, losing someone you love; be it through death or divorce (as that, too, is the death of a love story)is truly the most painful life event. I equate the circumstance to having a limb unwillingly removed. It was there; now it’s gone.  I loved my dad. It’s that simple. I loved him for one million little and big reasons. If you knew him, you know. I miss him everyday.  I’m reminded of him everyday. I see him in small and big ways everyday. I still trust and listen to him and imagine what he would say/do. A sort of “wwdd” (what would d…
