"We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the fact
that people act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do
is play on the one string we have,
and that is our attitude."

Easter Thoughts All Year 'Round

...and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.
- I Corinthians 15:14

He is risen! Risen...indeed!

And what's that supposed to mean to me?
I live each day as best I can;
I reach out to my fellowman.
I sometimes slip
I sometimes sin
But I always get up and try again!
I read my Bible;
I know how to pray.
I try to walk the Christian way.
I know God cares
And I believe He sees
That the only desire of my heart is to please.
So He is risen! Risen...indeed?
Tell me--what difference does that make to me?

Well, it's very plain it means nothing to you

For I see your hand in all you do.

He could still be dead and bound in the grave

He would not have lost His power to save.

But don't you see? Can't you comprehend?

The tomb was the beginning--not the end.

His death was not all He had to give--

He arose that we might have the power to live!

He is risen! He is risen indeed!
Now I see what that means to me!
It means that I died with Him that day
In some mysterious "God-planned" way;
That my hands are now His
My eyes truly see
My soul is made new
My heart is free.
The power to live is mine at last!
The days of striving and failing are past!
Praise God! At last the truth I see--

He is risen!

He lives!

He lives through me!

"The true test of character
is not how much we know
how to do, but how we
behave when we don't
know what to do."

We have the power to
shrink our dreams to
fit reality or the power
to stretch our reality
to fit our dreams.

"God did not give us a
spirit that makes us afraid,
but a spirit of power and
love and self-control."

Excellence is doing the best
you can with where you
are, what you have and who
you are, while always being
willing to grow and improve.

The Two Boxes

I have in my hands two boxes
Which God gave me to hold.

He said, “Put all your sorrows in the black,
And all your joys in the gold.”

I heeded His words, and in the two boxes
Both my joys and sorrows I store,

But though the gold became heavier each day,
The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black.
I wanted to find out why.

And I saw in the base of the box, a hole
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

I showed the hole to God, and mused aloud,
“I wonder where all my sorrows could be.”

He smiled a gentle smile at me.
“My child, they’re all here, with Me.”

I asked, “God, why give me the boxes,
Why the gold and the black with the hole?”

“My child, the gold is to count your blessings,
The black is for you to let go.”

God can handle all our troubles and needs better than we can.
All that we must do is let them go, so that He can do His work.
Trust involves letting go and knowing God will catch you.

"Life is giving. Life is
receiving. In short, life is

Business is a series

"Even though you may
want to move forward in
your life, you may have one
foot on the brakes.
In order to be free, we must
learn how to let go.
Release the hurt.
Release the fear.
Refuse to entertain
your old pain.
The energy it takes to hang
onto the past is holding you
back from a new life.
What is it you would
let go of today?"

~ Mary Manin Morrissey ~

It's not the water
around the boat
that causes it to
sink, it's the
water we let in
