1. , .

It is in the home, through the lives of his parents. Harold J.

The quality I have as a unique human being gives me the right to be here. Readers Digest What comes around goes around. The longer you wait for something, the more you appreciate it when you get it, because anything worth having is definitely something worth waiting. Never limit yourself when it comes to happiness. Learn how to take risks, because life is so much beautiful outside the comfort zone. Let go of the things that make you sad. Apologize when necessary. Life is short to be wasted on regrets. Be humble. Reach for the stars. Keep on achieving those dreams. We always wait for the right time, not knowing that each time is right. We keep looking forward for tomorrow but really, theres no better time to be happy but now. Happiness cant be found at the end of the road. Its the journey itself that matters. 3. True happiness is not about a big laugh or tears of joy. Its about a simple smile whenever you remember someone who made your life simply but completely happy. Some lessons are best learned through pain. Sometimes our visions clear only after our eyes are washed with tears. Sometimes, we have to be broken so we can be whole again. Remember, If God made the day to be perfect, He wouldnt have invented tomorrow. Never expect, never assume, because its better to feel surprised than to feel disappointed. Life is hard but God provides. God is unpredictable but God guides. Life is unfair but God cares. Life is always a challenge but God sustains. Im only a person who is willing to give you the best of what I can be, but Im not a perfect person so I hope you can appreciate the things that I can only give. Like being as simple as I am. Gazing idly into the future and dreaming about it, instead of making the best of the present. London Opinion Quit Gossiping Anticipating evils in the future Faultfinding, nagging and worrying Dwelling on fancied slights and wrong Scolding and flying into a passion over trifles Thinking that life is a grind & not worth living Talking constantly about yourself & your affairs Saying unkind things about acquaintances and friends Lamenting the past, holding on the disagreeable experiences 4. Pitying yourself & bemoaning your lack of opportunities Writing letters when the blood is hot which you may regret later Thinking that all the good chances & opportunities are gone by Carrying & criticizing see the best rather than the worst in others. Dreaming that you would be happier in other places or circumstances Belittling those whom you envy because you feel that they are superior to yourself. Dilating on your pains & aches & misfortunes To anyone who will listen to you. Speculating as to what you would do in someone elses places and do your best in your own. Ecclesiastes 3 A TIME FOR EVERYTHING To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance; 5. A time to cast away stones; and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose, a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to tear, and a time to sow; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time to war, and a time of peace God has put everything beautiful in its time; also He has put eternity in mens hearts, so that no man can find out the work that God does from the beginning to the end. MAYBE SOMEDAY. I dont mean to make life harder for you, but I know that I sometimes (I meanmaybe always) do.

Full many a race is lost Ere even a race is run, And many a coward fails Ere even his works begun. Think big and your deeds will grow, Think small and you fall behind, Think that you can, and you will; Its all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed, you are; Youve got to think high to rise; Youve got to be sure of yourself before You can even win a prize. Lifes battle doesnt always go To the stronger or faster man; But sooner or later, the man who wins 7. Is the fellow who thinks he can?

George Louis Leclerc de Buffon The truth is , laughter always sounds more perfect than weeping. Laughter flows in a violent riff and is effortlessly melodic.

Colin Powell The human heart, at whatever age, opens only to the heart that opens in return. Maria Edge worth Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you dont mind, it doesnt matter. Jack Benny First letter of Paul to the Corinthians I may be able to speak the languages of men and even of angels, but if I have no Love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell. I may have the gift of inspired preaching, I may have all the knowledge and understand all secrets, I may have all the faith needed to move mountains but if I have no Love, I am nothing. I may give away everything I have, and even give up my body to be burned- but if I have no Love this does me no good. LOVE is patient and kind, it is not jealous or conceited or proud. Love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable. LOVE does not keep a record of wrongs. LOVE is not happy with evil but is happy with the truth. LOVE is never gives up and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. LOVE is eternal. Reality check: People who criticize a lot are insecure. People who complain a lot seldom make actions. People who insult a lot are commonly ugly. People who flirt a lot, lacks love and attention. 11. People, who gossip a lot, never had true friends. On the other hand, People who are successful are usually those who once weak and poor. People who achieve a lot got many inspirations. People who stick to one lover, experience true love and the people who are happy are always kind to others. Behind every personality lie a positive and a negative experience. Hope you reflect on the positive ones. Carry a heart that never hates, carry a smile that never fades, carry a touch that never hurts and always carry a friendship that lasts forever. Great friendship is about two main things: first is to find out the similarities and second is to respect the differences. Happy people are not necessary does who have no problem. They are those who have learned to live with things that are less than perfect. Do you believe that there are no accidents in life? Everything happens for a reason. Every people we meet will have a role in our lives be it small or big. Some will hurt and make us cry to become stronger; some will simply inspire and love us to make us happy, whole and complete. Some will teach us lessons not to change us but for us to realize our mistakes and to help us grow and make us a better person. People change usually; they change into everything they said they wont be. You deserve a day where worries dont get in the way of anything, a day where even if some people are insensitive or unkind, youre not going to mind because the blessings you receive are far better than the burdens you experience. If you were to make the biggest decision in your life, would you rather be happy but wrong? Or sad but right? Think of it. Readers Digest Pretending to be strong is a brave thing to do. But know what? Crying is braver, why? Because not everyone can accept the fact that not all things are meant for us. 12. Be thankful that sunrises and sunsets are free, or else we couldnt afford them. Be thankful that behind every storm is surely the rainbow of hope and future sunshine. Be thankful for mistakes because life would be boring if we are all perfect. Be thankful for stress so that we can be reminded to relax and balance our life. Have a thousand reasons to be thankful to God. Having you as part of my life reminds me that loving my friends is never a waste of time so I always thank God for the friendship we are sharing and for the years to come. A nice wake up is always a gift from God. Let us turn this gift into a blessing by our act of sharing and to you I share a blessed morning. God bless. Lord, as I put my hope and trust in you, give me the wisdom to know when to hold on, when to let go and when to move on in life. Learn to let go of someone who causes you too much pain. Its good to hurt all at once than to be hurt everyday. Thanks for sharing a bit of your life, for inspirations and very nice wishes for the friendship youve shown me. I may havent done enough to make you feel that I value you but theres only few. True happiness is not about a big laugh or tears of joy. Its about a simple smile whenever you remember someone who made your life simple but completely happy. I may not have the best love life in the world. But I am blessed with super great relationships with my friends on earth. God makes life a little rocky, not to grind you into dust but to polish you into a brilliant gem. Be with people who know your worth. You dont need too many people to be happy, just a few real ones who appreciate you for who you are. God placed different people in our lives for a reason. Some to challenge us, some to inspire us, some to stretch us, some to encourage us, and some more for other good reasons. But dont forget that you also play a unique role in someone elses life. So be happy with whatever youre doing, no matter how small or how difficult your task is, only you can do it. God only knows how far your influence can go. 13. Id rather choose being hurt with the truth than making me believe all his lies. Leave me rather than to be with me but his heart belongs to someone else. Break up with me rather than use me and just be his option. Give up on me rather than staying in the relationship when I know Im the only one fighting. Let me go rather than hear painful words from him. Yes it hurts, but Id rather be alone than be with someone who takes me for granted and doesnt realize my worth. A sweet line from Jesus: Ive come to you not to make you love me, but rather to make you realize that youre worth loving. Be careful in ignoring things you thought are just nothing because maybe someday youll realize that the one you ignored is the thing youve been wishing for. You have only two options in life: Change or accept. So try to change what you cant accept and accept what you cant change. A smile makes you look younger while laughter makes us feel healthier and friends? They make us remember to do both. All the water in the ocean could never sink a ship unless it gets inside. Likewise all the pressures in life can never hurt you unless you let it in. Faith teaches us to believe no matter what situations were having right now. Hold on, be strong, and dont give up. God works in ways we cannot see. I guess Spiderman wasnt kidding when he said, no matter how much goodness youve done to them, they will still hurt you. Dont give up when you still have something to give because nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. Sometimes we have to make a big mistake to figure out how to make things right. Mistakes are painful, but they are the only way to find out the reality. I dont believe that laughing is always been the best medicine. Because I know that sometimes a cry can cure what a laugh cant. It doesnt matter what a man believes. What matters is what he does. We judge a man not by his doctrines but by what he does. 14. Throw your worries to the wind and let them fly to God. In the end, it is He alone who guides the wind to breeze joy and love back to you. Ill choose a lazy person to do the hardest job, because surely theyll find an easy way to do it. Bill Gates Some lessons are best learned through pain. Sometimes our visions clear only after our eyes are washed with tears. Sometimes, we have to be broken so that we can be whole again. Remember, If God made the day to be perfect He wouldnt have invented tomorrow. While it is wise to learn from our own experience, it is wiser to learn from the experiences of others. Each time the world needs an extra touch of love and gentle caring, God creates a friend. Whatever mistakes we have made, our only way out is to move forward. This is lifes proven formula: dont look back in regret but move on with hope. Its painful to fall in love with someone who has someone else especially if you tried everything to ignore the feelings, worst if that someone made you feel as if youre someone special but then youre just special and never would be the one. In life youll find special people who change your life just by being part of it who make you laugh until you cant stop who makes you believe that theres really good in the world that convinces you that theres an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. Theyre called friends. If youre in a relationship, theres no harm in looking and admiring others. Its like window shopping, good to see whats on offer. But it doesnt mean that you have to buy it. A breath of prayer in the morning means a day of power and blessings. Let Gods providence remind you that He is prepared the best for you today. The heart remembers all special moments when goodness made a difference. May the love you share with others return to you in countless ways. The most painful in this world is neither death nor love that is lost. But rather lies that are keep untold in conscious pretensions. Take a room for Jesus in your heart and He will make a room for you in heaven. Sometimes it breaks a heart to say goodbye but if its the only way to make things better, its easier to live life and work alone than to carry baggages you dont own. 15. God said, Dont get tired of doing what is good, dont get discouraged and dont give up. For you will reap a harvest of blessings at the appropriate time. Whether you trust a person or not, whether you question his actions or you spy on him. If a man wants to cheat, he will find a way for it. In life you have a decision to make. Either you will step forward into growth or you will step back into safety. Choose wisely, because when you take risk, you risk even more. Dont settle for merely a comfortable life. Explore and dream, otherwise you stagnate. Nothing is too expensive than missed opportunity. Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you and leave without feeling better and happier. Be the expression of Gods kindness. Let us not think of the few things we did not get after praying. Lets think of the countless beautiful things God gave us without asking. If you really love someone, show it. It will be sweeter than telling it. And if you dont love that person anymore, tell it. It will be better than showing it. When hard days come, push. When mistakes are get worst, push. When things are hard to understand, push. When you feel like quitting, push. When everythings empty, push. P-pray U-until S-something H-happens Keep pushing! Life is full of uncertainties; well never know when our time on earth is up till its over. So, take many pictures, laugh much, have a long walk with someone, take time to look at the stars, eat like theres no tomorrow. Its never the tears that measure the pain. Sometimes, its the smile we fake just to show others were alright. I wake up today smiling as I remember I have a loving friend. I hope many years from now I would still wake up smiling for the same good reason that I have you. 16. God balances our lives by giving us enough blessings to make us happy and enough burdens to keep us humble. Lets enjoy life in all humility and graces. Isnt it beautiful to wake up in the morning and realize that there are persons who are willing to love you everyday? Someone whos not getting tired of waking up just to see your smile? Someone, who is looking forward to be with you, value those persons whom you still have, and let them be your reason why you still wake up. If only people could realize how much shorter time is, maybe theyd maximize every fraction of a second to be happy whenever they could. As the sky closed into a twinkle evening, may God of heaven shower you a lot of wishes and dreams and make your night truly magical one. A smile is a language that everybody understands. It costs nothing but it creates much. It happens fast but its memory lasts. So keep smiling and stay happy. Worries are like bird. Let them fly over you, but dont let them build a nest on your head. Life is beautiful, keep worry free. Not everything that you wanted and work hard for is always meant to be yours. Somehow you lose, but there will come a better one that you surely deserve more than anything. Letting go of someone you love is like putting your favorite teddy bear in a donation box. You will miss it, but you know that someone deserves it more. Sometimes, if the string gets too tangled and messed up to solve, its better to cut it out. Start a new one and just leave that tangled part alone. The single hand that wipes your tears during your failures is much better than the countless hands that come together to clap you on your success. 17. A stupid past will always be remembered but can never be changed. But, mistakes can always be corrected and should never be repeated. Life seems never the way we want it, but we must live it the best we can. Theres no such thing as a perfect life, only a life sprinkled with perfect moments. You can close your eyes from the things you dont want to see, but you can never close your heart from the things you dont want to feel. Confidence may not bring us to success but it gives us the power to face any challenge. The best helping hand is at the end of your own arm. When you feel you cant handle things, just put your hands together and pray. Remember that while we do what we can, God will do what we cant. Start your day with these exercises: Stretch your patience, Run miles of faith, Flex your love for others, Kick those worries away, Smile your heart out, Jump to good decisions, And bend into right conclusions! Smile is a sign of Joy. Hug is a sign of Love. Laugh is a sign of Happiness. And you are a sign of Gods Love. Have you seen my smile? Ive been looking for it the whole day. Im wondering perhaps you know where it is, because the last time I saw it when I was with you! 18. I dont believe that laughing has always been the best medicine, because I know that sometimes a cry can cure what a laugh cant. Let me share this beautiful txt, I asked God, how do I get the best out of my life? God answered, Face your past without regret, handle your present with confidence, and prepare for the future without fear. Then He added, Keep the faith and drop the fear. Dont believe your doubts and never doubts your beliefs. Life is wonderful if you know how to live, the present is inevitable. Remember the power of God. Gods gift to me are people like you, with well meant prayers, I whispered my thanks to Him and asked Him to bless you in ways only He can do. You Are a Part of Me You are so much a part of me now That Ill never be the same I realize that as I think of how interwoven Our lives have become Weve been touched by each others minds and ideas and opinions And weve shared things that we could never forget Youve made me feel needed and safe and complete 19. Youve listened to my most private thoughts Youve been content to walk where Ive walked But also led me down exciting new roads of your own Im a different person because of all that youve unlocked And discovered in me And on your birthday I want you to know that you and your love Will forever be a part of me. Happy Birthday to you! Confidence comes not from always being right But from not fearing to be wrong. Never turn down assistance or hesitate to ask for help. Remember, your need is someone elses opportunity to give. Proverbs 15:13 A happy heart makes a cheerful face We are all given by God a mind capable of vast improvement; one has to put to full use of all his God-given gifts, talents, or abilities and utilize every available opportunity for his own use and improvement. Ellen White Im in Love with You Lately, Ive been having a hard time keeping my mind on anything but you! I find myself daydreaming about us all the time, and when I do, I cant help but smile. When people ask me whats going on, I say, Nothing, but thats not true. 20. A lot is going on- And its all because of you. I hear your voice in all my favorite songs. I see your face wherever I go. Im happy, sad, and confused all at once- and it feels wonderful! Five Powerful Questions: 1. What is the one thing I could do that would have the greatest positive, long-term effect on my life? 2. What is one thing I could do that would improve my relationship with someone I care about? 3. Ask this one often: what is there in my life right now that is worth being happy about? 4. What can I do today to develop a more healthful lifestyle? 5. If it were someone else in my situation, what would I tell him to do? 6. What can I do in the future to avoid any mistakes? Jenita D. Guinoo 21. Dont Quit When things go wrong, as they sometimes will When the road youre trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low and debts are high And you want to smile but you have to sigh When care is pressing you down a bit, rest if you must But dont you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns As everyone of us sometimes learns and many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out Dont give up though the pace seems slow You may succeed with another blow. Success if failure turned inside out, The silver tint of the clouds of doubt And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So stick to the fight when youre hardest hit, Its when things seem worse that you must not quit! LET IT GO If you are holding on to something that doesnt belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need it to let it go! If you are holding on to past hurts and painslet it go! 22. If someone cant treat you right; love you back and see your worth. Let it go! If someone has angered youlet it go! If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revengelet it go! If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addictionlet it go! If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talentslet it go! If you have a bad attitudelet it go! If you keep judging others to make yourself feel betterlet it go! If your stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Himlet it go! If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationshiplet it go! If you keep trying to help someone who wont even try to help themselveslet it go! If youre feeling depressed and stressedlet it go! If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying Take your hands off of it, then you need to let it go! Let the past be the past. Forget the former things. God is doing a new thing for you. Let it go! Get right or get leftthink about it, thenlet it go! Let Gods love, peace and blessings be with you always The past cannot be changedthe future is still in your power. Gems for thought When Love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece. One song can change a moment, one idea can change the world, one step can start a journey, but a prayer can change even the impossible one. A nice wake-up is always a gift of God. Let us turn this gift into blessings by our act of sharing. And to you, I share a blessed day morning! 23. Never get discourage when things do not measure to your expectation. Always remember that the greatest glory in life is not winning, but rising every time we fall. The best out of life is facing the past without regret. Handling the present with confidence and preparing the future without fear. Then keep the faith and drop the fear. Dont believe in your doubts and never doubts what you believe. Life is a wonderful if you know how to live meaningfully! Dont try to find person without weakness, for youll not find any. All persons have their negative sides. We all have limitations. We all commit mistakes because the truth is everyone can be naturally nice but no one is perfectly kind. Friendship is not measured when both take care of each other. Its measured when one ignores and the other still continue to care. Life has been unfair to everyone, you give extra effort on all you do yet youre never satisfied on what you are receiving but still you should never give up as what Bob Marley said, They made the world so hard, so well keep on fight in. Special persons are part of my memories that even time can never erase and when Im blessed with a person like you, my memories are worth keeping forever! Whenever I have a problem, I just sing. It helps me realizedmy voice is worse than my problem. Friends are people who build houses in our hearts. Encourage them to live there forever so that you will never feel empty. Some people dont know how to be satisfied, without knowing that sometimes wanting more means losing everything. When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone. When I was sure of losing, I won. When I needed people the most, they left me. When I learn to dry my tears, I found a shoulder to cry on. And when I mastered the skills of hating, somebody started loving me. You cant tap your back for a job well done. You cant hug yourself for comfort, and you cant cry on your shoulders when tears fall. Those are the reasons why you have friends in your life. To let them do those things that you cant do for yourself. God Bless You! Is such a little prayer but it means so much It means May the Lord with His gracious hands give you more than you have prayed for. 1. The final test of faith Is not how much you believe? But how much you Love? 24. No body loves a woman because she is beautiful or ugly, stupid or intelligent. We love because we love. 2. No one perfectly loves God Who does not perfectly love some of His creatures? In life, it is not the kind of work that matters most, But it is how you work your works! 3. Jesus said, Love one another. He didnt say love the whole world. Courage is the anchor that holds one steady, and enables one to climb on and on. 4. Never measure the mountain until you have reached the top. It may not be as high as it seems. The mind has a thousand eyes, and the heart but one. Yet the light of the whole world dies when love is done. 5. Be nice to the people you meet on the way to the top Because youll have to meet them again on the way back down. The real measure of a persons wealth is what they have invested for eternity. 6. Look for strength in people, not weaknesses, good not evil. Most of us find what we search for. It is easier to pick a wise man by the things he doesnt say. 7. If you want to succeed, You have to forge new paths And avoid borrowed ones that promise success. Faith is continuing to run, confident that you will get your second wind. 8. Management produces orderly results. Leadership creates useful change. You need both to be effective. Man needs more than a new start, He needs a new heart. 25. 9. Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people Who have the habit of making excuses? You never get a second chance to make a first impression. 10. Live is to living, not for thinking. To live freely, We must liberate ourselves from negative thoughts. Where you maybe tomorrow Depends wholly and solely on the road you are taking today. 11. Some of the best lessons we ever learn, We learn from our mistakes and failures. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future. Success lies not in what we start, but in what we finish. 12. Love makes the time pass. Time makes love pass.
