Experience is…..


Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you.  The sky’s are clear, the trees are green, and the mountains are high but just for today have it your way.Mountain-photo.~ Aldous Huxley

A Father’s Prayer


Build me a son, O Lord,

who will be strong enough to know when he is weak,
and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid;
one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat,
and humble and gentle in victory.

Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort,
but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge.

Here let him learn to stand up in the storm;
here let him learn compassion for those who fail.

Build me a son whose heart will be clear,
whose goal will be high,
a son who will master himself before he seeks to master other men,
one who will reach into the future,
yet never forget the past.

And, after all these things are his,
give him, I pray, enough of a sense of humor,
so that he may always be serious,
yet never take himself too seriously.

Give him humility,
so that he may always remember the simplicity of true greatness,
the open mind of true strength.
Then I, his father, will dare to whisper,
‘I have not lived in vain.’

My Hero


My hero is not an athletic, actor or artist but my grandfather.
In every family there is someone we can admire as our hero.  My grandfather was  just that kind of person.  He was a hard working family man who laid a foundation of life principles and lessons on  how to turn your struggles into success.  Every generation have been touch in one way or another by these core values.
Love – Everyone at there need level
Strength – In the mist of adversity
Tenacity – I never quite attitude
My hero left a legacy of  what  a husband, Godly man, father, and community leader looks like.  Who is your hero?

Loss but not a Loser


Often people never can (or should) “get over” significant losses, such as the death of a loved one, loss of a job, divorce or even loss of a home. The pain may always be with you in some capacity. Although much of the sharp pain of sorrow goes away in time, you may always have a sense of the loss. The grief process is not about getting over it, but about learning how to live with the reality of the loss.  I believe that God has you in the palm of his hand.  Just don’t give up.

Stop being a hostage


“If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.” ― George Bernard Shaw

For decades there have been hidden within families skeletons dancing around seeking freedom.  When will the day come that you will set yours free?

Remember, your enemy can’t hold you hostage if all your skeletons are out of the closet…..

Family


“You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn’t depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.”
― Trenton Lee Stewart,

Today, I thank God for the blood of Jesus Christ.
