A Letter To Miley Cyrus

couldn’t have said it better myself…many are praying for Miley Cyrus after her display on VMA performance…

The Happy Heart

Dear Miley,

I, as well as millions of Americans, sat in amazement as I watched your VMA performance. No, you are not the first artist to grind on a backup dancer (however you may be the first to grind on a teddy bear but who knows), sing about your life of partying and drug abuse, or to strip down to your chonies. It’s all been done before. So why is your performance evoking such media attention, anger, amusement, and general confusion? Well, I have yet to speak to the millions of viewers personally, but here are a few of my guesses.

1. Yes, we all know that you are NOT Hannah Montana and we are all aware that you are of legal age to make your own decisions and mistakes. I am sincerely sorry that at such a young age you were forced to adhere to the pressure of being…

Like Sand in the Hourglass…

Like Sand in the Hourglass...

did you ever watch sand passing through an hourglass? as a kid i used to love watching the sand fall over and over again. funny thing is, i never noticed how much time passed as each grain held me captive seeing it fall into little piles.
sand falling again and again mimics the minutes that add up to hours that we lose when gone unnoticed.
it’s been said, as we get older we’re more aware of how quick time passes by. but haven’t you noticed that even the young are complaining about how it’s flying?
why do you think that is? isn’t it because life keeps us in a whirlwind of busyness? are we to allow time to move us like waves that are tossed to and fro pushing and shoving us as it wills?
my friend,time can be a tremendous blessing if we let it, and i think it’s time to take “time” seriously! we need to take time by the hand (no pun intended)and make it work for us…
we also need to choose carefully the most important things that are required of us. in doing so we need to look at time as being powerful. and use it to gain back the time we’ve lost. don’t let your time get washed away by every wave that comes on shore.
so what do you say,do you want to start managing your time wisely?….remember, don’t let the sand mesmerize you,and make sure each grain is accounted for!
check your watches my friend….we don’t want to waste anymore valuable time!!

how do you see yourself...

i may be repeating myself, but this subject came up again, so i wanted to address it if you don’t mind…
here it is…
did you ever feel alone in a room filled with people? or when there’s a party going on you may feel you’re on the outside looking in? what about not being picked on a sports team in school? maybe you were overlooked for a promotion? ever have days like that?
i know you may not believe it, but everyone experiences some form of rejection at least once in their lifetime…
and yes, it’s a painful feeling thinking no one cares about you or recognizes your gifts or talents.
but maybe this is not really rejection as you know it.
can you for a moment stop and consider it may not be others who are rejecting you , but maybe you’re rejecting yourself, simply by not seeing your “true” self-worth?
the truth my friend is , you have been duped! you have believed an age old lie……
you see, what’s behind all of this rejection is fear ! fear lies and tells you no one cares about you, you’re not good enough, you don’t fit in, you have no friends, you’re not pretty enough, talented enough……are you getting my point?
well it’s time to take that fear and turn it in for some good old fashioned truth!
don’t let fear whip you and tear you down……take that fear and make it bow it’s knee and come under subjection to the truth!!! and the truth is that you are worthy to be a vital part of life and you were called to be planted in a strategic place… did you know you are worth more than silver or gold in the eyes of your creator? anything other than that is a nasty lie….
listen, we all have areas that need work, but focusing on the down side only brings bad results! focus on the good things about yourself!
see yourself as one who is a victor! one who can take on a challenge and jump over it like deer who’s feet can take them through rocky mountains!
come on, we all face challenges in life, why not refocus and see yourself as the one who wins instead of loses? you can do it!! anyone can, you just have to decide you want to sprint to the finish line! remember, if you’re going to run the race, it’s just a matter of giving it your best shot……that’s what really counts. truth be told, we’re all winners to someone!
so why not take a stand and see yourself strong and courageous? just look fear and rejection in the eye and tell them they have to find another resting place because you’re evicting them!!! hang up the”no vacancy”sign and tell those losers you’ve just rented their room to a winner!!!
oh! one last thing, don’t forget to thank your creator for who you are and how you were made, after all, you’re perfect in the sight of the master potter……so seriously ask yourself, who’s opinion really matters most? doesn’t the potter love his creation more than anything? then, why not take his hand and celebrate with him and be happy for who you were created to be?
come on…….let’s turn up the music and do the victory dance together!

Words Hurt but Revenge Can be Sweet…

Words Hurt but Revenge Can be Sweet...

i’m sure most of you have experienced how unkind others can be when they say mean and untrue things about you.
i know i’ve had my fair share through the years and it saddens me to say no matter how old we get people are still people and still don’t consider or prefer each other…
i don’t want to sound proud, but i think i’m finally getting the hang of it.
i’ve been called everything under the sun, accused of many things and talked about a lot and i must say there was a time in my life when it would frustrate me to the point of going over it again and again, rehashing every harsh word and every accusation! this was tiring because i would go over it so many times in my head until i came up with what i should of, would of and could have said to retaliate!!! thank god i didn’t follow through with my emotions were telling me to do at the time…it wouldn’t have been a pretty picture(or lady-like either)!
funny how today i found myself talking to a young girl who was extremely frustrated with some so-called friends who did exactly what i’m talking about…they made it clear they were talking about her and it was very hurtful…as she shared all about it with a male friend, one who said he didn’t care for these girls, betrayed her went right back to them and gossiped every word this young girl told him…so now she had been doubly hurt…and learned a hard lesson about trusting people.
don’t people get it? don’t they care about what they say and who they hurt? obviously not, young or old the story is the same…i tried my best for quite some time to speak her down from her brokeness trying to explain when she gets older it won’t hurt as much, but that didn’t really help her…she was wounded and needed someone to fix the wound and just be her friend.
after i got done speaking to her, i asked myself this, “why do we let others damage us with their words?” why do we allow them all that power over us? we give them power to steal our joy and peace…
i think it’s time we take a deep breath and allow ourselves to not care…i think we should recognize it’s ok to not care when it comes to these kind of things rather than feel bad believing such invalid words spoken against us.
whether it be friend or foe who betrays our confidence, makes fun and laughs at our expense or just says mean things about us, it’s time we stand up and look them in the face and let the words roll off our back like a water on a ducks back…it’s time to understand those words can’t have power over us unless we give them power…we need to realize we are made in the image of God and we’ve been created by Him, if people attack us, they are attacking what God created…
so today, let’s make up our mind to be defenders of those who are insulted and help those who are still learning that words can hurt for the moment but they can’t stay with us forever and destroy us…they will answer to one who is greater than than they are…our job is to forgive (that does not always mean forget) and move ahead with joy and peace in our hearts…
so my advice is tjhis…leave revenge in the hands of a pro, God knows the best way to take care of business…
