God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well. The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.
Today is my birthday; a new day has come and it’s better for me than it will be for some people. To those who are suffering, know I wish you peace, and may the light of morning bring needed release from dawn until evening; I pray you will find a never ending path of sweet memories in mind. This may be my hour and my time to shine yet, on this my birthday, knows your heart is mine.
I welcome each challenge this year offers me through hardship I’ve traveled and lived; I’ve conquered in stride with the grace of God evermore at my side. Each day of my life forms good fortune, anew. A handwritten chapter of dreams I pursue. I look not in sorrow, but with happy tears. Today is my birthday and this is my prayer, I wish mounds of love to my friends and fan everywhere; for you have stood by me, through thick and through thin and I know you would do the same, yet again. I wish you blue skies filled with sunshine galore and pray that warm tidings are near to your door. I may now be older, but I feel so blessed to have you, my friends and fans, for indeed, you’re the best.
I’m so very blessed not just on my birthday for all the friends and family God has sent my way.

Thank-you each and everyone for being a part of my life, I love you all dearly and for your love, calls, cards and wishes ongoing. Thank you and May God bless you each and everyone!
With faith, we can conquer the mightiest mountain and the grace of endurance is the great power of God at work within us. You can victory overcome every situation by faith and hope because God is in control of every circumstance. You can’t just run away from uncomfortable situation. You have to develop new strategy to graciously handle the situation. Be grateful for every circumstance because the light is shinning in every dark place. Always remember that you can survive life by faith.
How would you like to develop a mindset that could help you in overcoming challenges with anything that comes your way? The reality is that at some point in life, we all go through struggle. But we get to choose how we respond to it. We have the power to build an unstoppable mindset. Any successful person alive today is a testament to that infinite capacity of the human potential. This world can be cold and cruel if you let it, but if you just look at every obstacle as a new challenge that you are more than able to overcome, your suffering will be minimal, and your rewards will be great!
These are wonderful words of comfort. They speak of God as the Protector of those who trust in Him. They promise that while many will suffer destruction, the one who has trusted in God, who has fled to Him for safety, will be delivered. In this tough life we live we have to be able to find refuge and solace in God and his plans for us. Though at times we may feel like we can do it all by ourselves, the simple truth is, we cant. There is only one way to get through our lives and being able to reach our full potential requires that we trust in God when times are good and when times are bad.
The point is that God is our shelter when the winds begin to howl and under God’s wings we are defended, protected, perfectly safe. It means that someone else is in charge. Someone big, strong, and experienced. Someone who never goes off duty. Many in society have placed such a stigma on being as Christ-like as possible, that many try to do so, and when they aren’t able to live perfectly, they turn away because they feel too unholy to further establish a continual relationship with God.
It is the most natural thing in the world to dislike the people in your life who bring you down. We tend to feel angry and frustrated with them. But keep in mind that they aren’t born that way. Children aren’t usually born with genes that make them frustrate and anger other people; it is a learned trait. And it’s usually learned because it happened to them. If people are trying to bring you down it only means you are above them. When we’re around negative people it’s very easy to be taken down by their energy. If we’re not paying attention, we can soak up their darkness without even realizing it.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. There are many reasons behind a person trying to bring you down, but do remember that they are trying to bring you down which signifies them wanting to take you to an equal playing field, which is there level, a level down. There are many reasons why a person may want to bring another person down. One reason why a person would feel it to be necessary to bring you down is because they may not feel comfortable with who they are with themselves.
Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You got to keep going. Many of us have heard of how big a problem that bullying has turned into, and it is largely in part to parents not teaching their kids about self worth, leaving kids to turn to bullying for self esteem points. Another reason someone may try to bring you down is because they are jealous of what you have. You may not realize it but people love to spread hate when they feel that they aren’t getting enough love. It is important to be careful and protective of the things you have when you know or see signs of jealousy from someone that you may consider a friend. Always remember that people only rain on your parade because they are jealous of your sun and tired of their shade.
So in essence, it is important for many of us to have a beautiful outwardly appearance, but the only appearance people will truly remember when we are gone is the mark we left on the world. What type of mark will you leave on the world? It is never too late to start working towards leaving the world in as positive a place that you may be able to make it. Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself; no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are completely; the good and the bad and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.
