Getting Along


I find it is important to get along with others even those we don’t have interests with.

As children, we were told to get along with others. It wasn’t an easy task especially when they didn’t want to get along with us.

I hope that we learned something from that experience. Often the things we learned in childhood are still with us whether positive or negative.

Let our lives be as positive experiences as it can be. Amen!

Generosity


I am sure a lot of people may think generosity means you are willing to give a lot of money away. 

It may be part of the deal but generosity means to give a lot of yourself way whatever it is.

Generosity is one of the gifts God has given us. I am sure he would love us to give away as much as we can. Whatever he has given us we should find a way to give it to others.

If you have a good sense of humor or you are passionate I am sure people would enjoy receiving it from you.

So whatever you have give it away to others. I am sure you get a lot in return as well. Amen!

Hanging Out At Coffee Shop




I think something good to do is to hang out at a coffee shop. It is a good way to practice your life purpose. See who shows up that you can encourage whether they need it or not.

I have been told getting a latte every day is expensive. In a way, it is true but not expensive as well if you are putting yourself in other's lives.

I don’t really like coffee so why I buy an Americano with white chocolate in so takes the coffee taste away. The same goes for eggnog latte. Actually, most coffee drinks take the taste away. 

The least expensive drink is buying drip coffee. If you don’t like coffee you can by tea as well. It isn’t much more in price.


There are those who go to the same coffee shop every day so it is a way to meet new friends. I sometimes run into old friends too. 

What better way to enjoy life than hanging out with others. Who knows they may even like you.

Things Do Happen




Monday late afternoon we received my mother’s lift chair through UPS so she can get up easier than trying to lift herself. Also, the chair is able to allow her feet to be up so her feet and legs don’t swell.

I figured when the chair arrived it would all be together so she could move from her other chair to the new one. I was mistaken I had to assemble the new chair. I was a bit upset by that but thinking more about it made a lot of sense. Assembling the chair wasn’t that difficult even for someone like me who isn’t that mechanically inclined. Now the chair is ready for her to use it.

It made me realize things don’t happen always like you expect. It makes me upset usually as well for a short period of time. I have to learn the lesson over and over again. I am sure most people do. We should learn to go with the flow but the flow we don’t like usually.

Until next time enjoy your life even when things don’t go the way you feel they should. Amen!

The Bright Side


There is nothing better than encouraging and edifying others. I believe is part of life's purpose.

At a young age we are told by our peers and some adults we will not manage to be anything. Wouldn’t it be nice if they heard the positive instead.

Edify


The words edify means to build others up. I have a group on Facebook I call edify. I use scriptures daily to build others up.

I hope I am doing the same here with living a life of purpose.

We all need to know we are here for a reason. We are created each for a purpose just meant for us. Remember that whenever you wake up in the morning. Amen!

A Sense Of Humor


Do you know God has a sense of humor?  I do because I have a sense of humor and I was created in his image.

Many people think God is mean and uncaring. The reason many who represent God are mean and uncaring.

God wants to have a relationship with his children. Reach out to God and he will reach back. Amen!

Love Around The World


It would be nice if love was the center of all of our lives unfortunately, it isn’t.

Hate seems to be in the center more times than not.

In fact, those who call out hate are causing it as much as anyone.

We all have free will to decide what our lifestyle can be but when others don’t agree with it doesn’t mean they hate you.  Of course, there are those who do hate because of your choice of lifestyle which is a sad thing.

I am sure there are those who are living in the alternative life style hate themselves as well which is really sad.

I don’t agree with the alternative lifestyle; however, I would always be kind and considerate to them. This doesn’t mean I agree with it but we are to love others. Amen!

Not A Joyous Season?


We know this time of the year it is supposed to be a joyous season with the birth of Christ, Santa Claus, Rudolph, and many presents.

This isn’t the case for everyone. There are those who deal with depression on some level, the loss of a loved one or they have poor health.

I have not always had a joyous time this season so my thought is we should find others who are going through what we have before or still going through spending time with them. It will be good for both parties.

My mother is a remarkably strong woman. She must at the age of 99. She has had a loss of many over the years of life but still keeps going on. When she entered rehab after her fall and again before leaving the facility she was asked if she ever thought of suicide. You could see on her face like what are you talking about. She was kind to the social worker by saying no.

It is not as though she doesn’t feel well but mother keeps moving on looking forward to her 100th birthday next September. Her memory isn’t all there anymore; however, I would say better than most.

So I won’t end this by wishing you a happy holiday season instead make it through this season by helping others for all to have joy and the reason for the season at that. Amen!

Holidays We Remember



There are always holidays we remember whether it is on Christmas Day or the days leading up to it.

I am sure the ones we remember the most are those with the family that are not with us anymore or now live a distance from us. I remember several of them more than others. I mostly remember those that were there but are gone now. Also, I remember the ones when I was a child though I don’t remember all the details.

When I was in elementary school the last day before our Christmas break which they still called it in those days we were supposed to watch the movie “Heidi” with Shirley Temple. A snowstorm happened where we didn’t see Heidi, we were sent home early. Probably the only time I didn’t want to leave school early. I saw Heidi on another occasion on television. I can’t tell you the details of the movie; maybe I should watch it again.

Have yourself a wonderful holiday enjoy the memories of the past at the same time.

Being Busy


We all know with the holidays it means we will busy for December. It isn’t though we are not busy the rest of the year the holidays whether it shopping or going to parties it just busier.

Though we will enjoy our friends, co-workers, and family for these parties I believe we can use our purpose in a greater way. We might even be able to discover more of our purpose. This is something we all should look into.

I appreciate you all and I look forward to you looking in here in between everything else you do. Happy holidays with good cheer. Amen!

There’s Snow


Where I am there is no snow; however, the mountains got snow over the weekend for those to enjoy.

I am being tricky here to mention for those in the mountains there is a purpose. For most, it is to go skiing while for others it is to keep it safe for those who are skiing.

If I were at the mountains my purpose would be to enjoy the snow, throw some snowballs, going sledding perhaps, or hiking.

We all go to places for a purpose but there can be purposes we don’t even realize until we arrive and spending our time. This is what I find as exciting to our life purpose not only to do what we are here for but surprises come our way too.

Officially Holiday Season


I have now seen Christmas trees on the back of cars and my favorite coffee shop has their tree up and decorated. It means the holiday season is officially underway.

I know there have been stores with their decorations and items up for sale since the beginning of November but when people are buying trees to me this is official.

Unless you buy a fake tree the real ones won’t last through the season until buying at the end of November.

So enjoy the holiday shopping and the season. It is a great time to see old friends and meet new ones. A great way to use your purpose you were created for as well. Happy Holidays everyone. Oh I forgot a month until 2020. Unreal for sure.
