The wave of our flag

As I watch the flag wave with the breeze I wander what our soldiers are doing. For those overseas I send a prayer to bring you home safely. For those that are home but dealing with injuries both mentally and physically I send a prayer that you would heal. For those who's loved ones sacrificed their life I send a prayer to help ease the pain you bare. "God Bless America"

Teach them well

If only others could feel the pain and sorrow that their actions have caused would they then realize how painfully wrong it is. Too many people walk around feeling no shame or guilt. Their actions done out of anger have no consequences because it has become not only acceptable but also rewarded in society for generations. There are those that have not been taught, shown, nor even felt compassion. Teach the habit of humanity and we can put an end to the insanity that we see going on in society.

You can't get back across if you burn the bridge

If you burn all your bridges as you get angry throughout your life it will only make you angry when you can't get back across to get to the other side to choose to go a different way. Don't act shocked when even those that you thought for some reason, no matter what you put them through, they would always be there for you are no longer there. Your anger and actions done out of anger can take it's toll and the ones that were there for you will have to burn their bridge so you can't hurt them anymore.

All havoc breaks loose

When panic sets in your mind then all havoc breaks loose in every organ, every muscle, every vein, and every cell in your body. It starts at the top of your head with a thought that shoots like a bolt of lightning affecting every fiber of your body all the way to your toes. If you fail to get a grip on your mind then panic will cause your health to fail. If you want to be healthy you must not only watch what you eat but just as important you need to watch what thoughts you let in your mind.

Damage for a lifetime

There was a time when a negative comment would enter your mind like a bolt of lightning in reaction to what was happening at that moment but you didn't dare say it out loud. Nowadays it shoots out of people's mouth as fast as it enters their mind. If they will just keep it in till they have had time to think and see how they should react 95% of the time they wouldn't say it. Whoever said "words can not hurt you" was wrong. The hate that spews out of their mouth in a split second can do damage for a lifetime.

It's not what is in your bank account

Money can not bring you true happiness but it sure would make anyone happy to be able to not worry about a job, bills,or where their next meal is coming from. Even if you won the lottery you will still have to find happiness within yourself as you hide from those that beg you for financial help. It is only inside your mind that true happiness can be felt and enjoyed not what is in your bank account. Your "point of view" is your reality.

What are you looking for?

If you are always remembering only what angers you then you will surely be angry all the time. We have all had things done to us that has hurt or angered us. If you look for a reason to smile or a way to be happy you will feel happy because believe it or not you can still find happiness if you try. What are you looking for? You won't find happiness if you don't look for it.

A reason to be good

Talking about what is wrong in the world without doing what you can to help is what is wrong. Everybody sees the problems and all they have done for the past five generations is talk about it which has made it acceptable. When others see that talk is cheap and bad behavior is ignored then they have no good reason not to do it. Give them a reason to be good and they will strive to be good. Teach them to be good and they will learn to be good.

Follow it to the very end

So many thoughts could be great ideas that can then be turned into dreams come true if you follow that simple thought till the very end. Taking that simple thought that gets triggered at the most unexpected times that you must act upon before it quickly disappears as quick as it came only never to return. It may be your opportunity but you must grab it as it flashes through your mind as fast as lightning if you want to enjoy it. Seize the moment.

False Hope

There was a time when a deal was sealed with a man's word and a handshake, today.....Even if you get it in writing it won't keep you from getting ripped off on the deal. We are living in a time when you can't even count your blessings without someone trying to steal it. It is hard to even hang on to your sanity without others trying to steal your simple joys in life. If you give someone your word it ought to mean something. False hope is worse than no hope.

The answer may be blowing in the wind

As I was waiting on a hot day outside my grandsons school for the bell to ring for dismissal I felt the cool breeze blow through my car cooling me off just enough to be bearable. As I was enjoying the breeze I looked at the trees but their leaves were not moving. I realized that little breeze was just for me. My answer to the unbearable heat came "blowing in the wind." The answer you may be seeking may be blowing your way in the wind but will you hear it, see it, or feel it?

You only hear jibberish

Sometimes the many noises that surround you can be so loud that you only hear gibberish that bounces in and around your head so loud that it is painful. When it is all too painful to hear you must close out any sounds you can to ease the painful sounds that are reeking havoc on your inner-peace that is necessary to hear clearly the important things that you need to hear.

From a nut to a tree

You can not grow where you are planted if you don't plant your feet firmly on the ground. Being all wishy-washy or a whiny-hiney will only prevent you from creating the strength of character and standards that is needed to stand loud and proud amongst all the elements we must face in life. Their are hard lessons you must learn in life, they are called growing pains. Plant your feet firmly and stand your ground. Remember the mighty Oak tree was once a nut that held it's ground.
