Disappointed Faces

Has anyone really gone through life without falling back on any plan b's, c's, d's or f's? I don't think so. there will always be something that pulls us away from our life's dream plan.
You may not be living the dream you thought you were meant for. But through failure and disappointment opens new passage ways to find hidden talents, passions, and a paved road to a new beginning. Which as Henry Ward Beecher said, "Ones best success come after their greatest disappointment".
It may be hard to face the facts that you lost chances, but you've gained new opportunity.
don't be scared of new opportunity. don't fret over new possible disappointments. they are bound to happen. Robert Kiyosaki said, "The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way." you might be disappointed if you fail. but you are seriously doomed if you don't go out and try.

Create Yourself

I have been catching myself thinking about the people in my life a lot today. I Am at the age where everyone goes off their own ways in the world, whether it be college on the opposite side of town or nannying on the other side of the country. Life is all about closing and opening new doors and chapters. For me, its always been a struggle finding myself, and wondering what I am meant to do. I have wasted alot of opportunities waiting to find my way in this world. Life isn't about finding yourself, It's about creating yourself.
I apologize if this blog is random. But life is random. all my friends are leaving or are already gone. I'm going to miss you. here's a poem to my buddies far and abroad. I love you guys. and remember not to wait to find yourself, but take action and create yourself.


If you take some time everyday,
To think about the past,
Notice how your mind sways away,
To what you wish hadn't passed.

If you take some time everyday,
To wonder about what's coming,
Your future will always stray
From what you are becoming.

If you take some time everyday,
To regret all of your mistakes,
Then your past will go away,
And upcoming will be new aches.

If you take some time everyday,
To wish you had some more,
Then after, to your dismay,
You'll lose that open door.

If you take some time everyday,
To insult the ones who hurt you,
You'll never get a bouquet,
From those you know who loved you.

If you take some time everyday,
To read a simple poem like this,
And think, in a different way,
You'll see all that you have missed.

congrats to everyone and their upcoming endeavors. Don't look back, and don't regret. Keep your focus on the door ahead. though miles may lie between us we are never far apart. because friendship isn't measured by miles, it is measured by the heart. I love you guys. If I find out that any of my friends are living a life of regret. I'll kick your butt. only because I love you and want the most for you. :) Kia Kaha

Church signs

Everytime I start to feel down in the dumps for what ever reason I look up funny stuff on the web. todays web search was, "church signs"!! seemed like a pretty good subject since today is sunday and i just went to church. here is 18 of my favorites. enjoy!

1. "No God -- No Peace. Know God -- Know Peace."
2. "Free Trip to heaven. Details Inside!"
3. "Try our Sundays. They are better than Baskin-Robbins."
4. "Searching for a new look? Have your faith lifted here!"
5. An ad for St.Joseph's Episcopal Church has a picture of two hands holding stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments are inscribed and a headline that reads, "For fast, fast, fast relief, take two tablets."
6. When the restaurant next to the Lutheran Church put out a big sign with red letters that said, "Open Sundays," the church reciprocated with its own message: "We are open on Sundays, too."
7. "Have trouble sleeping? We have sermons -- come hear one!"
8. A singing group called "The Resurrection" was scheduled to sing at a church. When a big snowstorm postponed the performance, the pastor fixed the outside sign to read, "The Resurrection is postponed."
9. "People are like tea bags -- you have to put them in hot water before you know how strong they are."
10. " God so loved the world that He did not send a committee."
11. " Come in and pray today. Beat the Christmas rush!"
12. "When down in the mouth, remember Jonah. He came out alright."
13. "Sign broken. Message inside this Sunday."
14. "Fight truth decay -- study the Bible daily."
15. "How will you spend eternity -- Smoking or Non-smoking?"
16. "Dusty Bibles lead to Dirty Lives":
17. "Come work for the Lord. The work is hard, the hours are long and the pay is low. But the retirement benefits are out of this world."
18. "It is unlikely there'll be a reduction in the wages of sin."

Christ Remained True

...In agony, he prayed ernestly
He fell and cried, "Father!"
Just a boy pleading with his dad
In the end the cup does not pass
and he yeilded to the will of the father.
...In my difficult times
I try to do as Christ
He yeilded to the will of God
We should all be willful
We must bow our heads and say, "yes"
We must weep for our sins, and the sins of the world
...MERCY, is at the very heart of the atonement
There is help in my life, Christ knows
He has traveled my road
He as traveled all of our roads
To know how to sucker his people.

I love my heavenly father and my brother Jesus Christ! I love them because they know what I am feeling whether it be joy or sorrow. They know my "pet-peaves" and he understands my trials. I love them because THEY LOVE ME FOR ME! and that makes me so happy! and gives me desire to live life to the fullest. I love my Heavenly Father because he gave his son for me. With out the atonement, there would be no hope. I thank him every day for the blessing of the atonement. I know I would not be where I am today without it. To all who believe the atonement is real, but doesn't feel like its meant for you...It is meant for you. Let it be for you.
