“God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.” ~Daniel Webster. Our loved & lost were so ready to guard & defend freedom that they laid down their lives for it. They proved through their actions that freedom for all, is infinitely more important than the survival of one. The goal for today: honor our fallen soldiers by applying the same “do or die” approach to our everyday lives. Let us be just as willing to do what’s Right in our states, cities, communities & homes. Let us live by the Happiness, Peace & Freedom that they so courageously gave their lives to provide us with. Today, truly honor their sacrifice by living Right! Happy Memorial Day! Have a great day everybody!
“I’m Irish, you’re German… but what makes us both Americans is The Constitution” ~from the movie Bridge of Spies. I never get a lot of support on these type of statements, so I thought I might explain. My posts are never political, they are patriotic… there is a difference. In my mind the difference is that The Constitution is the government of God & always good… politics is the government of man & could go either way. The one we choose to follow will dictate the future of this great nation. The goal for today: follow the Right Leader! Have a great day everybody!
Once upon a time there was an idea… a dream. That dream was America & it was built on an unshakeable foundation. A foundation of Freedom & even if this entire nation collapses, that foundation will stand strong. My beautiful fiancé got me a book for Easter… The Federalist Papers & it gives us a pretty good idea of how to properly build on top of that foundation. The goal for today: live square & level, fair & just; live balanced & stable, with faith & trust; live in a manner that you earn what you get… & let Freedom be the end result! Have a great day everybody!
“Selfishness—self-centeredness, that we think is the root of our troubles” ~Anon. Selfishness… the human disease. We are faced with many troubles in the world today & they are all rooted in selfishness. Our money troubles, relationship troubles, educational troubles, emotional troubles, I could go on & on & on… they are all rooted in selfishness. If only we cared about each other, if we could only see the true value in putting the needs of others first, if we could only love each other enough… then we could change the world. The goal for today: please, PLEASE, think about how your actions affect others! Have a great day everybody!
I believe that we are all born spiritually perfect, in the image & likeness of God… & then we learn how to live wrong. Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love are our hereditary traits… & then the world teaches us how to be fearful, dishonest, selfish & resentful. Fortunately, God gave us brains to use… & from the age of 12 on, we get to decide for ourselves how we will live. Every day we get to choose to either live by what God taught us… or what the world taught us. The goal for today: make the Right choice! Have a great day everybody!
“For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.” ~Psalms 18:29. Where does Strength come from? Where does Courage come from? Where do we find Wisdom, Security, Freedom & Love? All of these things come from a place deep down inside of us all. The place that enables us to do things we aren’t supposed to be able to do. The place that creates the idea that we should never retreat, never surrender, never give in, and never give up. The goal for today: know that that place is your heart… & your heart is God’s home! Have a great day everybody!
“You’ve got to find some way of saying it, without saying it” ~Duke Ellington. I love this quote! I write like that… everything I say can be applied to an individual’s life… the life of our nation… & humanity as a whole. For example: I shouldn’t spend more money than I have… neither should the White House… or the G20. The Principles that govern all life on earth are at the root of the things I write. The goal for today: share the tools, that fix ALL of our problems, with individuals in an attempt to change the world from ‘We the People’… up! Have a great day everybody!
