GOOD ADVICE TO LIVE BY!

Wonderful Photos by Matt McClure

 

“Do more than belong: participate.
Do more than care: help.
Do more than believe: practice.
Do more than be fair: be kind.
Do more than forgive: forget.
Do more than dream: work.”
—William Arthur Ward (1921-1994); writer



After reading today’s Values.Com quote by William Arthur Ward, I just smiled and cherished this light bulb moment! Mr. Ward obviously had lived and learned a few things. His wisdom began with an action, some involvement-doing. What tremendous counsel; reminding us extend beyond ourselves, our circumstances! Participating, not waiting to be selected. Helping: volunteering first. Actively believing: practicing our faith. Demonstrating kindness: even when faced with dilemma of whether things are mutual agreeable or fair. Forgetting the wrongs done to us: wow that’s a tough one for me! Working: stepping into possibilities of making dreams realities. I am sure you agree that life holds many opportunities to observe listen and learn by doing?


It’s a cathartic realization that the more active we participate in life the better the results are. Life will show us some things! Yes, good and bad. My friend Cassandra once asked me: was I being a stump sitter? I didn’t realize that I was passively waiting, instead of actively progressing. That was a punch and a dose of harsh medicine, it was needed. But I’m glad to report I’ve got my wings of faith flapping. Those words jolted me! It got me active!


There are slogans like “Play to Win” and “You Have to be in it to Win It! usually these sayings are referencing the lottery. But we know the odds are often a million to one for collecting those desired mega bucks. But the truth is someone does win the cash; it just might not be us. In slick magazine and billboard ads we immediately recognize: “Just Do It!” This is an excellent opportunity for me to encourage you and say, “Stay in the game of life and keep at it!”


Yes we might languish on the stump for a while, but that is not where our comfort should lie. I’d like to believe that each day is a winning ticket, an opportunity to hold on to our faith with a life-force grip of “doing”. A grip that is strengthened with a determination to realize gifts and impact the world with dogged persistence.


Each new day is another opportunity to take God at His word packed with His promises and our life’s lessons. Let’s not forget to relish the aha moments. Here’s a billboard which is a virtual graduation gift entitled: IT’S AN AWESOME CHARACTER TRAIT: PERSISTENCE. I created this for my husband; hope it moves you towards your heart’s desire. Remember Good Advice is all around us!

Expressing Thanksgiving & Joy!

TODAY’S WORDS ARE TO: TAKE HEART!

Yes friends it just that clear, take heart. In big caps, in enunciated syllables if you will! In an exaggerated dialect, take heart!  Meaning don’t worry, don’t fret, don’t be intimidated, don’t be afraid! As Bishop Brooner would say, “Don’t be afraid, afraid of false evidence appearing real!”  That’s what fear is.  My God it’s good to know that we can take comfort-own the security that God’s steering our lives, God’s vessel-us, my life, and your life! He cares for what concerns us. This was made so clear this morning as I sat myself at my desk and prepared for another work day. At the click of a mouse here‘s what was once again revealed during a devotional moment on: Blueletterbible.com:

Today’s Promise from the Bible

John 4:14

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Reflection

Take heart in the evident promise of your salvation: that always and forever shall your soul be filled to overflowing with abundant and eternal life! Never shall you thirst. Never shall you dry up. Never shall your soul be parched. Rather take joy in this: unto everlasting shall your heart’s thirst be quenched as rivers of God’s living water pour down from heaven as you bask in the glory of God’s own Son: Christ Jesus.

The sentiment of today’s devotional  lines up so beautifully with my post written during Lenten season: MEET YOU AT THE WELL: HAVING A HEART-TO-HEART WITH JESUS!   shared on my blog: Celebrating Ordinary Days With Extraordinary Promises.  After reading this post we can breathe easy. We are well assured!

 Let’s exhale! God is our very breathe! That’s all the reason to praise the Lord!

Let’s prepare for the day ahead and sing about God’s glory with Mary Alessi and her anointed friends,  We Thirst For You.  Come on, come on and be ushered into praise and worship. Listening and participating in this awesome praise and worship you can’t help but to react and bask in the glow! The Holy Spirit is speaking. Let the chills run down your spine, the hairs stand up on your arms as your soul relishes that all the hustle and bustle does not negate that our real search is a soul-a heart awakening experience.  Why? Because we thirst for Him-more of Him! Jehovah, Friend, Father, Teacher, Lord, Shepard, Mother, Savior, Jesus Christ, Adoni Messiah!  Blessings to you today on this refreshing, restorative morning!

 May Alessi & Friends singing: We Thirst For You

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU! BLESSINGS TO OUR BELOVED MEN: A FATHER’S DAY TRIBUTE!

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness”(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’

Jeremiah 29:11 

Happy Father’s Day to all of the brothers, uncles, stepfathers, adopted Big Daddies and super fathers. You are our beloved men both young and old-standing in the gap for us: your children, loved ones and many others that depend and count on you!
Priceless is what you are! We cherish your loving guidance, coaching, strong silence, active participation, unique discipline, direction, no nonsense demeanor, humor, finances and constant prayers. Because God has fashioned you, we are confidently assured! There’s assurance that you’ll share your heart and be there to celebrate our accomplishments.
Yes, we know without a doubt that you like our Heavenly Father are a present help! Take a look in the mirror and confidently realize that you are an awesome help especially when we  are experiencing hardships, moments of being left out in the rain, waiting in the corridors confused, perplexed, and seemingly abandoned.

Thank you for providing the needed support and love on those countless occasions…

Like the countless nights you patiently sat between the door and the phone anticipating our return home; greeting us with a firm scolding.

When you gave your last few dollars, knowing full well a paycheck was weeks away;

When you told us so and reminded us that you weren’t surprised with the outcome;

When you planted that kissed on our foreheads, hugged our shoulders and encouraged us to be calm and not utter a word;

When we made that dreaded phone call and got a surprising conversation that changed our outlook and lifted our spirits;

When you sat on the floor with the other parents as we served you Peanut Stew and recited our poems;

When we felt embarrassed by your school visit, but later appreciated how you demonstrated your concern by your active involvement.

Oh the gratitude list grows moment by moment. You are doing an exemplary job! Thank you for being a steady stream, an anchor and our strength! We praise God for your wonderful presence. May you continue to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit! Remember God has a plan for you, the Holy Scripture says so!

 Enjoy your day and this virtual gift of this TD Jakes video. We love you truly, Happy Father’s Day!

PRAYER BOOK: IS AN AWESOME RESOURCE

 
 


Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that

you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous

person has great power and produces wonderful results.

James 5:16


 Friends this is my birthday season, can’t believe that another year

has come and gone. I’m a Flag Day baby. Growing up in the 60’s & 70’s a

big deal was made of this day, we marched happily through the school

corridors, wearing our patriotic red, white and blue paper crafted hats

and each student was presented with their very own miniature American flag.

After our symbolic march to the patriotic music by John Philip Sousa

it was then my turn to distribute treats to my class mates and relish that

my birthday had special significance. That’s been many years ago.

But I still enjoy a big deal being made of my birthday, truly

I get giddy with joy about the attention and especially love giving gifts

to my friends as well. This season of my life has been filled with many

moments that were trying! But that’s no different from others. Thank God for prayer (s) that has helped

provide me/us with a very different slant on what’s occurring. I want

to give you a gift that literally keeps on giving. It’s quite

personal – a prayer resource , this book is a tangible tool in that

you can acquire it from Christian Word Ministries.

The benefits are innumerable- it will SIGNIFICANTLY bless you!

This is a guarantee! In an exaggerated accent say, “Gar-ron-tee!”

 

I stumbled upon this Prayer Book via the internet when I urgently

needed a healing prayer. I couldn’t find my book: Prayers That

Availeth Much that I commandeered from my brother Stevie. I was

mentally preparing for a second

diagnostic mammogram. Yes, praying but was really uncertain

and afraid regarding the outcome. My spirit hungered for relief.

Never do I order anything on the internet, on this occasion

I moved past my reservations and ordered the free Prayer Book

and just like clockwork it arrived right on time. The more prayers

and affirmations I read, the more comfort I experienced.

 

Friends this is an invaluable resource that you will come to

greatly appreciate! It really is free from Christian Word Ministries!

They even invite you to download the book. The affirmations, scriptures,

prayers and so much more-are at your reach and will assure you, aide in

shoring up your prayer life and enhancing your faith journeys all the more.

My spirit reminds me of Philippians 4:6-8 (New King James Version) and says,


Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication,

with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the

peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your

hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever

things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just,

whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever

things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is

anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things.

 

It’s a must have for your inspirational bookshelves.

By no means does it replace your bibles. This book ushers you

to further lean on God’s word and power!


Check out the website:

http://www.christianword.org/php/default.php?page_id=dp

and/or

http://www.christianword.org/prayer_book/PrayersBook10a.pdf

and be sure to read the many testimonies, mine is there as well:

(Giving Thanks for You, Feb.21, 2007).

 


Blessings to the many prayer partners, especially those seeking

God’s divine direction. Three words attached with the bow on this gift are:

Application, Application, and Application! Apply scriptures

in the mighty name of Jesus and give feet/action to your faith!

This birthday I can attest that prayer is a healing balm for the soul.

I am a witness. I believe that we aren’t praying in vain and

God is always in our midst. Don’t hold back friends, in prayer

I encourage you to share with Him your heart! At the risk of sounding

like a broken record the Prayer Book is awesome!

March on y’all, march on in Jesus’ name!


God Has Not Forgotten

ROOTED IN LOVE

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Ephesians 3:17-19 (NLT)


I just can’t shake it, it’s been several days since I witnessed what I believe was blatant self-centeredness, no regard for others. It made my heart ache as I witnessed this person’s oblivion to the folks that he was connected to.

No, I am not a clinician or counselor, but like you if we observe a situation long enough there are some astute conclusions that we do quickly arrive at. Discerning spirits is what I ‘d like to think we have. My elders might call it “plain nosey”, I label it “concern”.

Now this is no indictment against those that take care of self , look out for their own needs, but disregarding others feelings, emotions and needs for the sake of self (I argue)is a horse of another color. Alright I’ll get to it.

After shopping for a few grocery items, I agreed to meet my friend in the photo section of Walmart. I think you will agree that on any given Saturday, Walmart is jumping, there’s lots of momentum. That wasn’t part of my morning plan, but I obliged my friend and agreed to go. And who can’t pass up a great bargain on fruit and veggies! I eventually found my way to the Photo Department and there was my friend studiously positioned at the monitor and diligently, very meticulously selecting her many photos. She wanted to clear out her SD card and create room on her camera disc for future photos. “Good idea”, I thought. I need to get busy doing the same. As I leaned in to examine her selections, I could not help but to stop look at my surroundings in astonishment. Folks were intently shopping. A woman in a clown outfit was riding by on a bicycle collecting donations for the needy. Folks were enjoying their shopping experience.

Activities were all a buzz. People were moving about, children were skipping and the cash registers were filling.

Then I noticed a young girl in the shopping cart (much too tall for that seat), slumped but quietly sitting. What I believe were her two brothers, stood nearby and were more animated, chatting and enjoying one another’s company. They did not disturb anything, but curiously moved about. They remained a safe distance-not too far from their mother who scanned an old family photo. I stretched my neck to see what appeared to be a rather worn photo from “back in the day” as we might stay. Not sure if the discolored photo previously hung on the wall or possibly was rediscovered in an aged photo album? It was obvious that it was an important family treasure. It appeared that the grandmother was also present for this outing. Her smile indicated that the she appreciated the technology of reproducing the photo and the young woman’s skill at operating the scanner.

I later observed the grandmother’s gait, her walking seemingly uneasy but determined. She dragged her stiff leg as she confidently pushed the shopping chart with the little girl ,which I bet could have sprinted down the aisles with no effort. I imagined they had a very special bond. But prior to that a young man approached them eating a hot dog draped with his favorite condiments. The young woman, said in a dissatisfied tone,

“You always manage to get lost.”

“ You’ve been gone a long time.”

In a sheepish, and not so apologetic tone, I heard the reply which expressed his disconnection and unconcern.

“I was just talking to some people I knew.”

Observing each of the youngsters, it was apparent he wasn’t interested, not invested in this young woman’s opinion as he ate his hot dog. He never missed a morsel, made no eye contact and never offered the children, the women a bite, nor suggested that they to come with him to purchase a snack. The children looked hungrily as he indulged.

The little girls stare succumbed to an averted glance downward, and what I surmised was a pitiful, but futile longing. What must she be thinking? The little boys tried very hard not to look directly at the young man as he lifted and the gobbled down the last bite of the hot dog. I began to feel bad, I was internalizing their disappointment, their pain and wondered why? Wondered what must their home dynamics be like.

So many things raced through my mind about a father’s love. A father’s love that crosses over a gene pool, reaches back-instilled from generations long gone and calls children that are not from his own loins “mine.” These blessed men that demonstrate a love that hungrily wants to make others feel good, feel validated, included and cared for are treasured! They have deposited love and have made a remarkable impact for healthier living! I earnestly wanted to yell , “What are you thinking?” And then I realized, he wasn’t! He didn’t have a clue or the unthinkable was that he didn’t care.For him it was just another occasion to wander off and think about self! He must not have known a loving father figure, a man with a forthright character that modeled unselfishness. Maybe he did? Who cared for him and others? Unfortunately on this occasion, he flunked the Are You Rooted In Love test miserably! It took a small gesture to demonstrate love! He could have done something differently or possibly said, “Later we’ll get a treat”, if his finances were low.  But friends the good news is, it’s not too late for the multitude of others and  this young man-he can have a change of heart on the next go round! Change his mind, his way of operating in the world and most importantly allow a new form of love and reverence reside in his home, in his heart!

Where are the young versions of Daddy Wahab, Uncle Leonard, Father Ned, Big Daddy, Papa Bailey, Gramps, Uncle William, Brother Sam, Cousin Melvin,  Mr. Jim? All these wonderful men that defy the stereotypes, and knew or learned how to love genuinely! We yearn for more of your love! Come forth and hurry young men, Lord knows we need you to lead by example. The families need you, the children miss you! We are praying for all the hungry (love starved), overlooked little children. We all need you to nurture and care for us! Help us to build each other up and cultivate relationships that are rooted in love!  We are praying anew! God is waiting to guide you!

~Prayer ~

Lord help us to be mindful of not only ourselves, but others.Help us to yearn for it! To get it: humbleness, faithfulness and to harbor love. To grab hold of consideration and gain a new level of comfort as we endeavor to model it-model love and spread it on thick like we do when we indulge ourselves.

Help us Lord to see the needs of others, to value them and believe that we too will have our needs met and love reciprocated.

Help us Jesus to remember that we are yours and you are ours! You’ll always support us in doing your will.

We bind anything that is contrary to your design for our lives. And to loose hearts of thanksgiving because we are rooted in your divine love! We’ll forever continue to give you the honor, praise and glory! Forever and ever.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen!

PASSING ON THE VALUE OF: SHARING!

“Whatever we possess becomes of double value when we have the opportunity of sharing it with others.”

Jean-Nicolas Bouilly (1763-1842);

“Have you had a kindness shown? Pass it on; ‘Twas not given for thee alone, Pass it on;

Let it travel down the years, Let it wipe another’s tears, ‘Til in Heaven the deed appears – Pass it on. ”

Henry Burton (1840-1930);


 

I love, appreciate it and have a ball actively and creatively expressing my values and my belief systems on the website: Values.com, The Foundation for a Better Life. They have cleverly shared a myriad of values we hold deep in our hearts no matter our lineage. After visiting this website, I want to jump on the bandwagon and stretch my creative muscles. Their inspirational quotes, billboards, stories and photos cause me to ponder and wonder how I too will share important and enduring beliefs that sustain me and sometimes cause me to reflect with thanksgiving. Just like when I was a little girl, I believed everyone in the class should receive a Valentine’s Day card, cupcake or whatever my Mama provided me with to eagerly dole out.

I like to share and want others to play and participate in the game also. I am convinced that the creators of Values.com have the same mindset. Class can you say: In-clu-siv-ity? They have cleverly and thoughtfully provide a public invitation and a platform to tout the values we most treasure. Those treasured values our fore parents and life have instilled in us! And more importantly to pass them on! Values.com slogan is: “Values are worth more than when we pass them on!” And so my friends today that is the resounding theme, remembering the importance of stepping out and sharing. Yes, sharing in order to pass on the love, and not withhold encouragement! Join me in the fun of sharing, surprising yourselves and helping to make this world a better place and building a life of appreciation and delight in spite of _____________ ( you fill in the blank) and to just go on in faith and do the things which are a foundation for a better life!


Below are my “Value” creations of: excellence, inner vision, sharing, persistence and believe on Values.com. I am looking forward to seeing yours!


Values Sighting

http://www.values.com/pass-it-on-sightings/256-Atlanta


My plane landed at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport during the Easter Holiday to visit with my family. As I walked the concourse towards the Air Tran baggage claim, there I sighted the wonderful Values.com Excellence billboard with Jim Thorpe. At that moment I wished I had had my college aged son to take a photo of me smiling in front of the billboard and to chat with me about the many contributions Jim Thorpe (Native American) made as a stellar American football player, and as an outstanding Olympic athlete. I encourage others to learn more about Jim Thorpe, it will broaden your appreciation for this man’s character and his resolve in overcoming adversity.


 Inner Vision: Chappelle Letman: A remarkable sculptor with eyes of faith

http://www.values.com/your-billboards/3250-Chappelle-Letman-A-Remarkable-Sculptor-With-Eyes-Of-Faith-

Mr. Chappelle Letman is a 21st century master sculptor, a true renaissance artist. Prior to losing his vision permanently in 1992 he worked in construction to supplement his income, this artist loved painting with oils which depicted nature scenes, cityscapes and people. Eight years later transitioning into a new reality of being visually challenged wasn’t necessarily easy for him. Mr. Letman recalled his loving mother’s promptings to excel and live his best life. She instilled wisdom and a sound work ethic which he continually exhibits. His spirit conveyed, “Don’t panic, have faith.” This life lesson carries over when he humbly encourages young artists challenged visually and physically to express themselves and not live by other’s dictates. He echoes, “Stay alert and use your instincts.” He uses his own words of wisdom which have prepared him for independence and creative expression. He’s surely humble, but no shrinking violet. His life skills coupled with California’s Sight Center instrumental instructions regarding technology devices and visual aids helped Chappelle Letman live life with dignity. His heart is open to God’s leading and his hands become the instrument for his creative expression which have been captured by the photographer Don Snyder. Art and healing is a phenomenal partnership. Chappelle Letman’s life is evidence that healing can occur if we remain open to what God reveals in our inner visions. He receives support and is in partnership with organizations that promote independence for the visually impaired: the Ohio Arts Council, the Cleveland Sight Center and Kentucky‘s American Printing House.

Sharing: Promoting Literacy The Power of Sharing One Good Book at A Time!

http://www.values.com/your-billboards/2763-Promoting-Literacy-The-Power-Of-Sharing-One-Good-Book-At-A-Time-

Inspirational Author Linda M. Meadows and her mother, Clarinda Mose knows the enjoyment and inspiration that reading brings. They agree that reading is fundamental. Mrs. Mose is a retired English Teacher, Education Administrator and former Literacy Volunteer. This mother daughter team continues to encourage reading by passing along great books, writing heartfelt messages and promoting the value of journaling. It’s a domino effect. Friends, family and acquaintances are passing the baton spreading the same joy of promoting literacy. Have you shared a good book today?

 Persistence: It’s An Awesome Character Trait!

http://www.values.com/your-billboards/8389-It-s-An-Awesome-Character-Trait-

My husband, Richard is the apple of my eye, that’s no secret. But, I am particularly delighted to share with others that he is a recent Seminarian and now graduate. Friends and family applaud this wonderful accomplishment. His grade school teacher told my mother-in-law that my husband was stubborn and then recounted that that was a good thing! I’d like to instead call his stubborn determination, persistence! I am so very pleased that he’s continuing in his dream of not only achieving scholarly pursuits, but also actively serving others in ministry and living out his dreams! He’s not timid about life. Congratulations!

Believe: Everything Is Possible to those who believe!

http://www.values.com/your-billboards/11149-Everything-Is-Possible-To-Those-Who-Believe-

Our beloved little Courtney demonstrates by his act of sheer determination that great outcomes result from perseverance and a heart dedicated to the cause. Believing is trans-formative my friends. Be encouraged put your faith into action.

 

Oops, I almost forgot all about this very important billboard tribute to my friend, Dr. Saundra Cherry and the historic James A. Fields House!  This was one of my first billboard attempts!

 

Passionate: He Captured her heart and she continued building a legacy!

http://www.values.com/your-billboards/3071-He-Captured-Her-Heart-And-She-Continued-Building-A-Historic-Legacy-

Dr. Saundra Cherry has gracefully embraced her late husband’s (Elder Greg Cherry) passion and dedication of preserving the noble legacy of James Apostle Fields (an ex-slave, educator, graduate of Hampton Normal & Agricultural Institute, legislator, attorney, and home owner where the first African American Hospital in Newport News existed). There is a continued need for the greater community to support this historic landmark. Dr. Cherry remains faithful and dedicated to the vision of preserving this historic landmark and museum located in Newport News, VA. Dr. Cherry believes that this mission is important to continue so that future generations can appreciate and celebrate the amazing life of James Apostle Fields. We’re extremely grateful for Elder Greg Cherry’s zeal and love for life, history, culture and the arts. We salute Dr. Saundra Cherry for continuing to build upon the legacy of a noble man. The James A. Fields House remains listed on the Virginia Landmark Register, the National Register of Historic Places, and the Virginia Civil War Trails. Museum visitors have a unique opportunity to experience firsthand what the turn of the century life resembled for African Americans living in in Newport News. We hope many more will follow Virginia’s trails leading to the James A. Fields House, embrace this passionate mission and support the vision!
