Awake

All men whilst they are awake are in one common world: but each of them, when he is asleep, is in a world of his own.
– Plutarch

It was not until a few years ago that I started to understand the term, peace be with you. Its not about not going to war, its about a mental peace washing over you. In the middle of a struggle or difficulty its hard to be calm in all that is stressing you.

Peace is not about running away from your fears or issues, but about knowing that you can only do so much, the rest is up to God, and being completely comfortable with that.

Don’t run away, embrace the issues and work through them. Don’t. Ever. Give. Up.

Good night world… peace be with you.

Another night…

Priorities

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

– Ephesians 4:32

What are your priorities?
Mine are love, kindness, forgiveness, faith, hope and love (Love is in twice, because it is that important).

Their are many ways to love, some specific for certain relationships and others for everyone to enjoy.

Love through compassion, even when they are angry, bitter and hurt.

Love through giving. When you give of your time, talent and treasure, you are showing you care.

Love through prayer. Even if they don’t have faith, nothing should prevent you from praying for them.

Remember though, you are not God and you don’t know all that they are going through, so pray for guidance, support and love for them.

Love through faith. Faith in them and that God will guide them and they will make the right choice.

Love through forgiveness. Everyone makes mistakes, some are just much, much larger then others. You can still forgive and you should, you will feel better too.

Love though patience. Time is hard to sacrifice, we all what we want, and we want it now! Give of your patience and support. Help each other.

Lastly, love through kindness. A smile, a soft word, a kind word, a sign of affection. Each of these kind actions will make a huge diffrence for someone.

Someone said thanks to me today, it was like water in a desert, just what was needed.

 

Good night to you all and peace be with you.

Life Experiences

Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
– Martin Luther King, Jr.

Continuing with the theme of attitude; bitterness the cousin to anger will rear its ugly head if you don’t watch out. Life is hard, but then again no one said it would be easy.

I hope you are all enjoying this day of our Lord.

Peace be with you. =)

 

God bless…

A perspective on a glass half full or empty?

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
― Abraham Lincoln

T: The glass is half full and you always see it as half empty.
A: Can we at least agree its not full yet?
– West Wing

This post is based on the idea that perspective and attitude make up your life. Though each quote above is relatively simple, each reader will see them though their own eyes and predispositions.

In this case, I think of my current self-inflicted difficulties. I am going though a rough patch that I will not involve you in dear reader, but suffice to say, it doesn’t get any harder then this.

Getting away from the struggles, I ask to be… “sound in faith, in love and in patience.”  and “… to give up our wicked ways and our worldly desires and to live decent and honest lives in this world.  To be filled with hope, as we wait for the glorious return of God and Jesus Christ. He gave himself to rescue us from everything that is evil and to make our hearts pure. He wanted us to be his own people and to be eager to do right.” -Titus

With that I say good night, good and faithful servant, good night and peace be with you.

M.H.
