A BROKEN WING
She still sings.
She keeps an eye on the sky
With a broken wing,
She carries her dreams,
And you ought to see her fly
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams,
And you ought to see her fly.
Change your way of thinking.(think on things that are true, positive, etc.)

Some Life Changing Suggestions
While celebrating Memorial Day where men and women have fought and even given their lives for our freedom, let us not forget how blessed we are to have freedom. In spite of nations hostility toward one another, communities divided, issues of education, families divided and unrest everywhere, one man can make a difference. Yes, one man, Jesus Christ, made a difference in our world. Mother Teressa made a difference in our world, Billy Graham made a difference in our world, Martin Luther made a difference in our world and YOU can make a difference in our world
1. DO NO HARM. "By doing no harm, by avoiding evil of every kind, especially that which is most generally practiced." "IF, HOWEVER, YOU BITE AND DEVOUR ONE ANOTHER, TAKE CARE THAT YOU ARE NOT CONSUMED BY ONE ANOTHER."
To do no harm means that I will be on guard so that all my actions and even my silence will not add injury to any part of God's creation.
2. DO GOOD. "By doing good: by being kind and doing good in every possible sort and, as far as possible to all..." "GOD ANOINTED JESUS OF NAZARETH WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WITH POWER; HOW HE WENT ABOUT DOING GOOD..." Acts 10:38 "WHOEVER DOES GOOD IS FROM GOD." 3 John 1:1b
Doing good, like doing no harm, is a proactive way of living.
3. STAYING IN LOVE WITH GOD. "By studying His Word and being Obedient to it." "SEEK THE LORD AND HIS STRENGTH, SEEK HIS PRESENCE CONTINUALLY." Psalm 105:4
Living in the presence of and in harmony with the living God who is made known in Jesus Christ and companions us in the Holy Spirit is to live life from the inside out. It is to find our moral direction, our wisdom, our courage, our strength to live faithfully from the One who authroed us, called us, sustains us and sens us into the world as witnesses who daily practice the way of living with Jesus.

Thank you Mom!
Everyone comes from different backgrounds, different environments and different circumstances after birth. What I want to leave with all of you today is "THANK YOU GOD AND MOM FOR GIVING ME BIRTH IN ORDER THAT I CAN FULFILL THE PURPOSE FOR MY LIFE." Take what has been given to you and sail with it!!! Don't allow a "devastating life" stop you from having a "wonderful life"! It is your choice. YOU WERE BORN WITH A PURPOSE AND GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO FIND THAT PLAN. Use your circumstances to help, encourage and love others.
I had a wonderful family unit. My parents loved me, protected me, provided for me and most of all believed in me. There is not a day goes by that I don't thank God for this gift of life. Our family unit had many hard times, but we stayed strong in our faith and our love for each other.
God Bless all Moms around the world!

How Can I Change the dynamics of MY HOMEMY COMMUNITY AND MY WORLD?
RESURRECT GOOD MEMORIES INSTEAD OF BAD?
SPEAK POSITIVELY, EVEN THOUGH THE SITUATION MIGHT BE NEGATIVE?
MAKE A CONCERTED EFFORT TO RESIST THE EFFORT TO ENGAGE IN GOSSIP?
SAY A PRAYER OF THANKS ON OUR DRIVE TO WORK INSTEAD OF THINKING OF ALL THE THINGS WE DON'T WANT TO DO ONCE WE GET THERE?
SHOW FORGIVENESS TO SOMEONE WE DON'T THINK DESERVES IT? OR
ACCEPT THAT THE PAST IS DEAD, BUT WE HAVE THE POWER TO RESURRECT HOPE FOR OUR FUTURE?
IF WE REALLY BELIEVE: "THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HATH MADE, LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT" LET'S PUT SOME ACTION INTO MAKING OUR HOME, OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
IF YOU BELIEVE ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE-LET IT BEGIN IN YOU. AFTER ALL ONE MAN DYING ON THE CROSS, TAKING THE SINS OF THE WORLD UPON HIMSELF, MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU AND ME TO HAVE SALVATION AND HEAVEN AS OUR HOME.

MAKE ROOM FOR A THANKFUL HEART
A THANKFUL HEART IS something everyone of us would love to have BUT are we willing to work at a place where our HEART IS OPEN FOR BLESSINGS??? As I have been thinking about the Thanksgiving Season we in America have so much to be thankful for-but are we overlooking the positives crowded out by the negatives. I would like to challenge each of us at this Season of the Year to do some searching & correcting on issues that may be crowding out the blessings. THEN COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS ONE BY ONE!
