These guideposts direct you, giving insight. Sometimes God will miraculously open doors for you when you least expect it. They might appear to be coincidental but in reality they are meant for you to make a decision.
The guideposts are there. They could come in the form of temptations or the form of an arrow pointing you in a certain direction. You notice these guideposts. You have all sorts of choices in this world. Each choice you make leads you in another direction.
It’s the journey of life. As we look back at our lives, we see things happened because of our choices. We see the way things were aligned and we find comfort knowing there is a bigger picture at stake.

Many friendships will come and go in life. In seasons of change, a person will encounter new friends, and old friends will fall away. There are friendships that stay with you during a lifetime.

The seasonal friends may be those you work with. There may be minimal outside contact with them besides the day-to-day of working together.

Tonight is Oscar night. It’s the biggest night in Hollywood. It makes me think about all the glamour and glitz while the celebrities walk the red carpet. They wear the highest designer fashions. We turn on our televisions to watch their arrivals. We wait to see who will win the Academy Award. We hope our favorites take home the Oscar.
These inspirational heroes change us. They make us think differently about ourselves and the lives we live. Those who make a big impact in the world, leave a lasting legacy that transforms our lives.
In this excerpt from ‘Awakening the Dream Within’ it says, “In life, we leave a legacy to our children; we leave our footprints wherever we travel, and we leave our fingerprints on every heart we touch.” Continue reading “Who Are Your Inspirational Heroes”
I do believe however, when we reach our heavenly home, we will see lines of people and crowds of smiling faces. Those lives we touched in simple ways, as well as those we have greatly impacted, will be there to thank us.
On this side of heaven we may never know the impact we are having on others in our daily lives. We offer kindness, we give generously, and we help our fellow-man. Continue reading “On This Side of Heaven”
Can I change the world by mere existence? Can I move mountains by my sheer desires?
I might not be rich and famous, nor be of a celebrity status, but I am unique. My experiences, my pasts, my relationships are in essence what I am made of.
A self image is the heart of the soul. We search our pasts, we research our ancestry, we hunger for knowledge.
