TERRIFIC TUESDAY!! April 12, 2011

Dear friends, today is another terrific Tuesday. I want to share with you some statements written by SETR, a friend who had endured many hardships, but whose faith continues to grow even in the toughest situations. This is a compilation of several series of statements. I’ve done very little editing, so what you will be reading is quite literally straight from the heart!

God made you to carry the weight of one day. Do not weigh yourself down with the years behind it or the day ahead. Just enjoy your day.

Life’s not a bed of roses as Shakespeare rightly said and although we all have to face difficulties and go through rough times…have our hearts broken…love people and lose them…There’s one thing that keeps us constantly going, that does not let us stop – helps us fight to the end, and hold on; and that is HOPE.

The hope of happiness, laughter, joy…the rainbow between the rain…the soothing after the pain…of finally finding the way in hope of a brighter day.

Don’t let a failure weaken you or let your worries overtake. Don’t let denial shake your hope for mountains can be moved by faith.

Don’t let criticism pull you down, or a fall make you sad, for the one who gets the King’s crown is he who is never scared to stand.

Don’t let an unkind work hurt your heart or being honest fill you with guilt, for by joining together bruised pieces and parts is the way champions are built. Don’t let your confidence get gripped by doubt, or dishonest means lure you away, for many the quitter may jump and shout. Coward is he, and it’s what he’ll stay.

Don’t let judgment trouble you, or the impatience that struggle brings. Smile on good moments, however few, for miracles happen in little things. Life may be complicated, fate may turn its face, but with just a little belief in yourself, never-ending battles can be overcome with Grace. There’s always a silver lining to a dark cloud, a new beginning, a new way. The sun is yet to rise again and bring with it a brighter day.

We should not judge people by their peak of excellence, but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started. When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals; adjust the actions steps. Allow Love to guide and inspire your words, thoughts, and actions. Nothing is impossible. The word itself says “I’m Possible!” Change your thoughts and you change your world.

Life is a constant challenge with its ups and downs, where everyone has the control to decide what s/he wants from it. Take the time to enjoy life’s simplest pleasures. Relax, pamper yourself, and take time to pause, breathe deeply, and think about the person you see in the mirror AND BE HAPPY ♥♥♥

Happiness is not something you design for the future. It is something you design for the present. Every moment and every event of every person’s life on earth plants something in that person’s soul. You can choose the design.

This is what I choose each day. I choose love. I will love God & what God loves.

I will choose Joy. I will enjoy what life has to give.

I choose Peace, forgiving other so that I may be forgiven.

I choose kindness. I will be kind to the poor for they are alone, kind to the rich for they are afraid, kind to the unkind because that is God’s way.

Send no one away without a word of cheer, a feeling that you care.

Gradually a feeling of wonder, certainty, gratitude, and then joy will follow. Take a moment to love your life. It is the only one you have.

May you have a wonderful day, a better night, and a loving tomorrow!

Thank you, SETR, for these inspiring words, and thank you my dear friends for taking time to read this Terrific Tuesday message.
