Attitudes Truly are Contagious, so ask yourself one Question. Is mine worth catching?

"Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the world worthwhile."
Carrying sad and painful memories of the past is what creates pain body. Living in the NOW is not easy, but it is so worthwhile. Carrying grudges, sad memories of the past, and trauma; keep one from living in the PRESENT. Clear your mind everyday of these thoughts and live LOVING the PRESENT. Living the present is what we are meant to do. God tells us to live in the image of him, and that includes our thoughts. It is just as sinful to hang on to past angry thoughts, as it is to covet our neighbors goods. Letting go of the things we left behind and taking only the lessons we have learned from them, releases us from pain body.
Going to the gym everyday, eating healthy, and losing weight will not do as much for us as letting go of the the things that make us victims in our own lives. Hanging on to the past makes us victims in the present, letting go of the past makes us healthy and happy in TODAY. Choose the PRESENT and be in optimal health, so when success comes to us we are ready for it!

"It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it~"
Somerset Maugham

The Barbarian and Radical Way

Love QuoteImage by Mina Uk via FlickrIf we could see things from God's perspective we would choose them, but we can't; so we must depend on our faith, and knowledge of his word to choose his way. If radical obedience was "easy " we would all do it. We are obedient to many others, (teachers, parents, bosses) Why not God? We should all be "running" to the path of God's demands, yet, because he gave us "free will," we don't always choose his way. We don't choose his way because everything he asks us to do "we think of as hard," change your mind and decide to choose his way and life may not be easier but it will be better.
"The most spiritual activity you will engage in today is to choose. We think we want the freedom to choose rather than making the choices that bring freedom." Erwin McManus.
Think about the choices you make everyday, a teen may choose to engage in sex, but that choice may bring an unwanted pregnancy, a driver may choose to drink, but that may bring the death of him/her or another. Make choices today that bring freedom. "The real power of life not the freedom to choose, but making the choices that GIVE YOU FREEDOM" Erwin McManus, Author of "The Barbarian Way."
"How you set your mind determines what's going to happen in your day. What's going to happen in your finances, or in your relationships." Based on 1 Peter 4:12.
Joyce Meyer, Author of "Power Thoughts", and "Go Radical."

What mind set will you start your day with?

There is a reason it is called The Pepsi "Challenge"

Patchwork Quilts, 1982Image by dannie4852 via FlickrGOOGLE

or the third time in 2010 we did not collect enough votes to stay in the running. I will probably run again in March when they start accepting new Grantees. I am collecting resources now to get to the top in April. I will be asking many craft, and quilting sites to offer me their support. I will begin collecting them on my Face book page for the "challenge." It is a difficult challenge to win because it is based "totally" on people voting for me. I never give up, so I'll be in the fight again come March or April. So look for us and go to my page on Facebook to offer your commitment to vote for me. Please share with friends and family because this challenge is not about me it is about the disabled. Visit OUR GRATITUDE regularly to check for updates and our new start date.
I hope all that read this will go to the page join and lend "helping others with no expectation of return," is how life is meant to be lived. I hope to serve the disabled in my community and many others with this program. Please join in and lend me your support by beginning to collect bloggers, friends, and families to vote for us during our next challenge.
