Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. ~Carrie Fisher

We cannot live only for ourselves.  A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.

What should I include in the “Chocolate Survival Kit.”

Time Alone With God

Sometimes time alone for anything is a challenge for me. As soon as I settle down, serious thoughts crowd in. Nonsense thoughts fall into place too. And then menacing thoughts are not far behind.

Time Alone with God is possible! Some ideas from Rick Warren on building quiet time with God.

Start with focusing on God. My friend Carl says, “enjoy and acknowledge the blessings He has givenWhen you pray, you should pray like this, ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name …” Matthew 6:7-9
Pray a prayer of surrender: stop trying to include God in your plans and instead ask God to include you in his. “May your kingdom come, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven…” Matthew 6:7-9

A Word From My Sponsor

created by helen

“Those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of goodness” James 3:18

Every day we are either planting seeds of conflict and drama with the people in our life or seeds of peace.

Inspired Thoughts by Waves of Gratitude: Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it….all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself… ‘How did I get through all of that?” —unknown

Nurture Enthusiasm

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Nothing great is ever accomplished in life without enthusiasm.” You have to have a passion to see something great happen. That’s why you need to nurture your enthusiasm if you want to change.

If you say, “Well, I kind of, sort of, maybe want to change” it isn’t going to happen. If you say, “Well, I’d like to change in my spare time” it isn’t going to happen. But if you are passionate about your goal it will become reality.

Unfortunately, it’s easy to lose your enthusiasm. So how do you maintain it? Speaking from personal experience, it takes more than positive thinking or psycho cybernetics. It takes God in your life.

The word enthusiasm comes from two Greek words. The word en which means “in” and the word theos which is Greek for “God.” To be enthusiastic means to be “in God.” When you get in God, you have enthusiasm deep in your heart.


Help me release.
Lay Your hands over my fists.
Teach my fingers to relax,
to uncurl and spread wide,
letting my resentment fall away,
and leaving my palms open to receive
Your waiting blessings.
~Abigail Wurdeman

Still the waters of my mind

Still the waters of my mind, Lord, so that I may make my decisions based on an undistorted picture of reality.

Clearing The Space That Surrounds Us

I clear the space that surrounds us.
I set aside the clutter of my day
so the chaos does not obstruct my view of You.

I clear myself.

I breathe out the weight of my ego

so my heart is opened to you.

I open my eyes.
I find you at my side,
waiting for my frantic mind
to settle finally on You.

We meet,
joining in the sacred ceremony of our routine
in the quiet motions that still my wild heart.
It’s time to be in this moment.
I am with You and nowhere else.
By Abigail Wurdeman

Focus On What Is Working

Focus on what is working in your life then, what is not working will eavesdrop and begin to work as well.

Right now, I am going to list ten things that are working in my life. You hear that “what is not working?” look out!

From my dear friend Beth who shared this quote from Bro. Ishmael Tetteh


Father I hold tight to Your truth and trust You to work in my life.

Dealing With Difficult People

Dealing With Confrontation and Difficult People
I read this and read it again. And then, I even committed preciously expensive printer ink to it and printed it.

You will thank yourself and Alia, the writer.

Be The Change

Ever wish you could do something to change the world but you get discouraged because there’s only one of you and you don’t know where to begin?  Well, chances are you can’t change the world all by yourself, at least not all at once. But you can change it, one act of kindness at a time.

Consider these 11 ways you can change the world.  It only takes…
1. one compliment to make someone feel appreciated.
2. one visit or call to end someone’s loneliness.
3. one show of trust to make someone feel trustworthy.
4. one offer of hope to end someone’s hopelessness.
5. one request for help to make someone feel needed.
6. one person listening to make someone feel important.
7. one burst of laughter to make others want to join in.
8. one outstretched hand to pull someone to safety.
9. one person caring to make someone fell valuable.
10. one act of forgiveness to erase someone’s guilt.
11. one hug to make someone feel huggable.

Be the Change
