Believe . . .

in God

in yourself and in your dreams

in the beauty 
of everyday moments

in the joy
 of simple pleasures

in the power
of a smile

in the gifts
of family

and friendship

in your ability
to touch the hearts
of other people

and make a difference
in this world.

Believe it with all your heart!

YES. YES!!!! My husband and I were having a conversation one day about BELIEVING and having FAITH and how the two are NOT as ALIKE as we may think. There are those who simply DO NOT BELIEVE, so already, they are defeated. Then there are those who BELIEVE....EXCELLENT! But there are FEW who actually have FAITH...hmmmmm.....what is FAITH? WE hashed out ideas, but Ruben talked about how when FAITH " when there is nothing left" and you just DO what is necessary, in spite of maybe loosing the vision, or the BELIEF, the DREAMS...WOW. Faith is serious business....the final frontier before heading out to the sunset of eternal is it ever interesting to be a human being!!!

FAITH HOPE AND MOSTLY LOVE to you Maria my friend! Anita

Good morning dearest!

THANK YOU for coming over today.....I love that scripture in Proverbs about " one man sharpens another." We all learn from each other and then find something else to ponder and then spend a life-time trying to figure is a blessing!

HOPE YOU WEATHER IS O.K.??? Is the heat off?

Coooooooooool breezes to you! Anita

I think sometimes we all need to be reminded that we can make a difference, sometimes in very small ways-sometimes without even knowing it. This was a lovely reminder.
