How Does Your Garden Grow?

Standard

We won’t see eye to eye with everyone. I prefer to socialize with people who are open-minded, optimistic, and have the same values as I have. My goal in life is to be happy and at peace.

Deborah’s Quick Tip

Standard

So as our physical appearances change when we grow older in life, here’s my quick tip for wrinkles:  ACCEPT them!!

Focus on What’s Right

Standard

We will experience many obstacles in life.  Usually, our first reaction is to resist what is happening.  We also want to know why it is happening.  What we really need to do is focus on getting though the situation and to think positive about what we can learn from it.  It’s a growing experience.  We may come to find out later or we may never know.  Our faith is being put to the test.

Life’s Lessons

Standard

Just when things are moving along fine and then BAM something bad happens (at least we think so at the time).  It has happened to all of us.  We immediately ask why.  Why did this happen, what am I doing wrong, why can’t things work out, etc.  It’s especially hard on parents when it happens to their children.  Some parents would rather take the fall than to see their children suffer.  God wants us to grow in grace.  God wants us all to learn to be strong and responsible but yet loving and compassionate.  How do we learn to be good if there isn’t bad?  How would we know about light if there wasn’t dark?  We have to learn to accept things as they are, because it’s all part of life’s lessons.  Keep the faith no matter what.
