SeaWater-SQ-FBWhen I look at my life, I cannot imagine what it would be like was it not for that handful of friends and my family, who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it; family and friends make life interesting.

Every morning when I wake up I chose joy, and happiness. I look forward to each day. I look for the joy and happiness each day can bring.   During your life journey you will meet people, experience events and possess a lot of things.   How you see life and feel about yourself will determine your joy.

Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s joy, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy it will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.

True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, and the appetite of creating something new in your life. If you enjoy life you can and will be successful. Live Simply, Live Well, and Make a Difference.

Some of the most difficult time to pray is when you are going through hard circumstances. When faced with great pain, or trial, or sadness it can be easy to turn away from God and look inward. Sadly, this will only result in more pain and greater discomfort.

This week the Victims’ families of Charleston South Carolina offered forgiveness and salvation to the shooter! This act of kindness shown by the families is a reflection of how love can begin the healing process and their faith in Christ. The outcome of this tragedy will be forever in the minds of all of us.

The word “forgive” means to wipe the slate clean, to pardon, to cancel a debt. When we wrong someone, we seek his or her forgiveness in order for the relationship to be restored. It is important to remember that forgiveness is not granted because a person deserves to be forgiven.

Would any of us, after such a horrific loss of a family member forgive the slayer? The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). If we withhold forgiveness to others, forgiveness will also be withheld from us. All of us need forgiveness. Don’t let a tragedy separate you from your faith in your savior.

RedBridge-PM-TCGHere are keys to move forward in life: When we deal with obstacles, tap into you’re inter self to maintain confidence, seek guidance and have patience while waiting for a clear response on how to move forward in your life.

The bigger the obstacle the less action you should take. This strategy goes against our instinct of what seem to be a usual tendency when things don’t go our way. It is a natural tendency for us to dig in and stand our ground to quit and just give up.

Asking for guidance and being patient and believing in a divine order, help’s with deciding between struggle and surrender.

We can spend our life fighting for preserving our will or to simply to let go and let God lead us. When you’re ready to admit that you don’t have all the answer that you need to help find your way, then you’re ready to surrender into a new life of happiness, gratitude and grace.
