Reality

  • There has been some talk that thirty is the new twenty, forty is the new thirty and fifty is the new forty. Lets all stop, then realize this very important fact, none of us are getting any younger. As bad as most of us want to hold onto yesterday, one thing that will never change, today is right before us and yesterday is now in the past or gone. Despite all the creams, surgeries, our physical training, the vitamins many of us take daily or our advance technology none of this will keep us young or have the ability to make us live forever. Even though there are many scientific break through, there is no fountain of youth or magical pill waiting to save or change the people that seek to live forever. There is only one certain one day each us shall one day die. The only way any of us can live forever is by having believing and having faith in God. While you ponder what I just wrote, understand this all I did was give you a dose of Reality.( 1 Timothy 4:8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.)
    Have a blessed day,
    Charles
    Luke 10:20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

Don't Take It Personal




As a writer , a salesperson and sometimes a counselor , I get the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life. Whats so refreshing is when you meet people from other, backgrounds, cultures, religions or race is when you learn something new that can help you in the future. But whats also refreshing is when you can help pass on some of that valuable knowledge to others. I always believed if you have the opportunity to help someone in need, that you should do whatever it takes to help or encourage them. Which brings me to the topic of today, Don't take it personal. I truly believe that the reason why a lot of us get ourselves in trouble or why we get so angry easily  is because sometimes we don't listen and then take the advice given personal. The things we should take personal we don't and the things we shouldn't take personal we do.Whats funny is when our fathers, mothers, friends, teachers, Pastors or siblings  try to help or give advice, we often think that they are only trying to tear us down. When in fact the only reason they give advice or try to help is out of love.

What made me realize this fact was after I was had a conversation with my son. I was explaining to him the reason why a man should do certain things for himself and why he shouldn't depend or expect others to help him. I was also explaining why he shouldn't have his pants hanging off of him, why he should go to school and why he should go to church on Sundays. Believe it or not,  he took our conversation personal and thought I was attacking his character. What he didn't realize then, but he does now is that I wasn't trying to offend him, nor was I trying to attack him. I was only giving him advice, because I been on the road that he has been on before. Also I didn't want him to make the same mistakes as I have and that I loved him. It wasn't effecting me, that his pants was hanging off and if he didn't go to school that really didn't bother me either. Because I already went to school and my life has already been established. After all like he said before, it is his life. I was only trying to enhance him and make him a better man. That is when I sat him down and said Son, when I see you I see greatness, you may not see it now but in time you will realize I was only trying help bring it out of you. I was only trying to protect you and keep you from making some serious mistakes that may hurt you for a lifetime. In time you will see that I am right, so don't take it personal because I care. If you happen to be reading this and someone is trying to give you a little advice or if they are giving you some constructive criticism. Don't take it to heart or personal because it's only whisper, thought and blessing from God.
May God continue to bless you,
Charles

Time Heals All Wounds



Life, when you think about it, what thoughts come to your mind ,when you think about your own or others ? I know if you happen to be reading this at this moment, then just like millions of others worldwide, have endured many storms. After all no one is spared of their share of trails, tribulations or struggles and death doesn't discriminate it doesn't care how young ,old, rich, poor or whoever we happen to be. In time each of us will experience things, we never could imagine. Yes,the unexpected can or will happen even to the healthiest, successful, richest or wealthiest of us. People sometimes will be mean, do nasty things,some men or women will be unfaithful and while others will be down right ugly. That is why its so important to enjoy life to the fullest, to forgive, forget, move on and never hold on to, new or old grudges. After all life must and will go on,with our without you. Live, then you will learn that the good or the bad will fade away in time and the only thing in the world, that truly last forever is God.

 My late grandmother would always say to me as a child, when I cried, complained or when I was stressed out or worried," With Gods good, grace she would say, there will always be a tomorrow. Yes it may be raining today, but someday the sun will shine. Stop your crying Baby! Don't complain, never let or allow anyone to bother you and don't let evil people or the devil to steal your joy! Stop worrying about what happened today or yesterday and always make plans for tomorrow. Because whats bad today, will be gone tomorrow and Time does Heals All Wounds. One day you will be disappointed, your feelings may be hurt , but you have to act like a man and get over it. Just because something bad has happen, you should never loose your courage or your faith! Because the  very next day you, will be healed, things will be good, you will feel a whole lot better. Life will be wonderful and everything you touch will turn to gold or become a blessing, all with the grace of God. Why you may ask? Because, Time my  grandson, Heals All Wounds.
Have a blessed day,
Charles
