To Kill?

Who? What? Where? When? Why?
This does not make any sense-
Deliberate taking a human life
Suddenly put to an early death.

Isn’t the animal world less vicious?
Do they take away their own species?
Animals kill so they can survive
It’s a matter of life or death for them.

But us humans taking our own kind
For unlawful, selfish, and political reasons?
Causing bloodshed within our people is
Becoming a national crisis within humanity.

Our Body Made Into Three Parts:

PHYSICAL-We must nourish our body with food, drink, and essential multi-vitamins. Eat many varieties of meals and drink in moderation.  Target on meats, grains, vegetables and fruit.  And don’t forget to treat yourself with a dessert!  Keep yourself physically fit and well.  Remember to move that body! It is designed to walk and run and stay in activities.  Sitting and sleeping is done too; we all need a little rest. We are to take great care of that body by no overuse of drugs and/or alcohol.  Use these items sparingly to stay healthy. Don’t deny yourself.  If others see you need help, listen to them.  They care and love you!

MENTAL- We must see things clearly with the capacity of our mind.  Look and listen; watch in interest of the world around you.  Don’t only look into yourself.  There are others all around so learn about feelings and emotions.  Learn about what’s good and bad, and seek to find your values. As you study and observe through personal growth, look into your strengths and interests; rather than what everyone is doing.  If one jumps over the cliff, will you follow? “No.” So remember to find your own talents.  This will carry you into your choice of college, career, and employment.

SPIRITUAL-We must know the reason we’re here. We were born for a life to live.  Take an interest in finding out why.  As children we wanted to explore-now we can again.  Read the WORD and learn an understanding of your faith.  Love one another as He has loved you. Love your neighbor as yourself. Keep that feeling of love in your heart!  Don’t push it away. If it is pushed away, how will you get it back?  It could take a long time through your journey. An on-going intimate relationship with Him through active meditation and prayers, will give you the peace and understanding to your life.

Use them all wisely-

Through the Years

Today we became joined together
To share our dreams, our thoughts,
                And our love.

As we travel on throughout life’s pathways,
We’ll always be needing the help from
                God above.

And as the years pass swiftly on by us,
We’ll know that it all began with our
                True and constant love.

Each Day a New Beginning!

Look towards a bright beginning-
Take each moment as a prize;
Relish the scenes around you,
Enjoy the sounds and then explore.

What might you find interesting?
Cherish it in your mind and heart.
See the beauty that it has to offer-
Enjoy the time you have with it.

Each day comes and then it goes-
With each breath it keeps you alive.
Witness the chance to take it in,
As tomorrow the day starts to begin!

Peace of the mind:
Peace in families
Peace in the schools
Peace in society
Peace of wrong-doing
Peace unto all souls
Peace from corruption
Peace from violence
Peace of hostility and war
Peace amongst all people
Peace amongst all nations
Peace treaty signed
Peace in the world-
Peace within you!
