Quote for the day- April 28, 2012

.Quote for the day:


I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
– Elie Wiesel

Something else to meditate on:

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
– James 1:27-27

19 Thoughts

19 Thoughts

2. Fear knocked. Faith answered. No one was there.

3. What you are is God’s Gift to you. What you become
is your gift to God.

4. I am God’s Melody of life and He Sings His Song
through me.

5. We can never really go where God is not, and where
He is, all is well.

6. No matter what is happening in your life, know
that God is Waiting for you with open Arms.

7. God Promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

8. Do your best and then sleep in peace. God is Awake.

Grace of God will not protect you.

11. We are responsible for the effort, not the outcome.

13. Begin to weave and God will Give you the thread.

14. When God says “no”, it’s because He has something
better in store for you.

15. The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power
behind us.

16. Prayer: don’t bother to give God instructions, just
report for duty.

17. It’s my business to do God’s Business and it’s His
Business to take care of my business.

18. Serenity is not freedom from the
storm, but peace amid the storm.

19. How come you’re always running around looking for
God? He’s not lost.

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
– Romans 13:9</i>

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.

Survival Skills 101

(To be honest, I am nowhere near mastering these skills, but I do hope to master most of them some day – Ninure da Hippie)

Survival skills 101

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.
3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, My purpose is to __________ today.’
4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan Salmon, broccoli , almonds &walnuts.
6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
7. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
9. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
11. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
12. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

17. Forgive everyone for everything.
18. What other people think of you is none of your business.
19. GOD heals everything.
20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
21. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch!!!
22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.
– Mark 1:35

Prayer is an attitude toward life that sees everything as ultimately sacred, everything as potentially life-changing, everything as revelatory of life’s meaning. It is our link between dailiness and eternity.
– Joan Chittister

A Psalm for the Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Psalms 15

Lord, who can be trusted with power,
and who may act in your place?
Those with a passion for justice,
who speak the truth from their hearts;
who have let go of selfish interests
and grown beyond their own lives;
who see the wretched as their family
and the poor as their flesh and blood.
They alone are impartial
and worthy of the people’s trust.
Their compassion lights up the whole earth,
and their kindness endures forever
.

(A Book of Psalms, translations by Stephen Mitchell)

Risk Growth – a Thought For Today

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”—Anais Nin
 

People “come out” all the time; and the coming out issues are just as diverse as the people navigating these coming out processes. Regardless of the issue at hand, most everyone who ventures out of their “buds” reports how much freer they feel than before taking the risk to blossom.
 
Sure, it’s often warmer—and maybe even safer, sometimes—in the bud. At the same time, it is very dark; and it is often lonely, because we don’t make room for others in those buds. We can’t stretch when we are cramped in those tight buds.
 
To grow and flourish, the human spirit requires light and air. So, the next time we are feeling a bit cramped spiritually, why not take the risk to break free of the bud—to blossom and grow in the light and fresh air of God’s love?
 
Grace and Peace,

“Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, so that you may live and occupy the land that the Lord your God is giving you.”
– Deuteronomy 16:20

“You can look at a slum or a peasant village, but it is only by entering into the world — by living in it — that you begin to understand what it is like to be powerless, to be like Christ.”
– Penny Lernou

Famous Last Words….

FAMOUS LAST WORDS

Consider these quotes from the past:

“This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” –Western Union internal memo, 1876.

“Everything that can be invented has been invented.” –Charles H. Duell, Commissioner, U.S. Office of Patents, 1899.

“The wireless music box has no imaginable commercial value. Who would pay for a message sent to nobody in particular?” –David Sarnoff’s associates in response to his urgings for investment in the radio in the 1920s.

“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” –Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

“Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.” –Popular Mechanics, forecasting the relentless march of science, 1949

“I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won’t last out the year.” –The editor in charge of business books for Prentice Hall, 1957

“But what … is it good for?” –Engineer at the Advanced Computing Systems Division of IBM, 1968, commenting on the microchip.

“There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” –Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977

“640K ought to be enough for anybody.” — Bill Gates, 1981

It’s amazing that we’ve accomplished so much technologically in this country considering the pessimistic views held by many (even more amazing when you consider that some of the achievements eventually came from people who at one time held the pessimistic views themselves).

What is your vision for the future? What would you like to accomplish? More to the point, what would you like to see God accomplish through you? There will likely be someone around you ready to tell you that “it can’t be done”, or “we’ve tried that before with no success”, or “it’s too much trouble”.

And they may be right. Or they may have a “grasshopper complex” like the ten spies in Numbers 13 who were unable to see what God could accomplish because they were looking so intently at the obstacles in their way.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

May the God who can do more than we can even imagine (and I can imagine a lot!) be with you this day.

Have a great day!
