Greetings to all who visit and read my posts. I am truly honored by your visits and the comments that you graciously leave. What you have to share truly enriches my life. I hope you are doing well today and having fun too. Life is a gift that has been given to explore.
I am encouraged by the fact that I do not know what is around the bend. I know that it is going to be for my ultimate good. I do not know where it is going to take me. What I have come to realize is that life is teaching me to be an actor, rather than a reactor to what comes my way. I have also found that it is taking me to places that I could not have otherwise imagined and I am encouraged.
I have used it in the preceding paragraph several times. I have made it in bold print for a specific reason. It , in this context is used to signify anticipation. Anticipation mixed with hope motivates me to take advantage of what has been given to me today. I have included a page from my book below. My book is registered, but not published, Table Topics for the Soul — Journey to the Heart. LC Registration #: TXu1-330-434 Copyright © 2007
May you be encouraged to take advantage of the IT in your life, one day at a time. Please do not forget, You are a Gift to Your World!
Wonder is before me waiting to be experienced. New doors are waiting to be opened. Opportunities are like a door handle that can be grasped with eager anticipation. When I take the risk to turn the knob, I find myself starring into fresh possibilities. When I see the attainable, my destiny takes on new form. In so doing, I build upon my skills, talents and abilities that have been given to me. Small successes become the foundation upon which I grow and develop. In this cycle, more opportunities become apparent.
I like the image of a tapestry. On one side, there is a jumbled group of multi-colored threads. By looking at this side, one could become disgruntled, discouraged, disillusioned, and disheartened. But there is hope on the other side of the panel. I begin to see clearly, why each thread is placed with intricacy. A vivid story is being told.
This metaphor helps me to understand that although I may not always know the benefit of such opportunities, as they become apparent I can trust the process. Consequently, prudence encourages me to take full advantage of the opportunities that are given to me. I am then able to rest in the now, because I believe more will be revealed with time.
