This human form is temporary.

Enjoy playing the game, even be serious about it if you wish, but do not get so attached to this form that you forget who you truly are - the fruit of God's love.

This life is what you make it

If you have to find another ‘half who makes you whole’, then maybe you aren’t together enough to be in a relationship. Work on yourself and become the best person you can be before bringing your ‘soulmate’ into your life. Our true love will only knock once in a lifetime. So we don’t give up because it is your soulmate. Listen to the beatings of your heart. It is hard to trust others when someone has broken you or your heart. I have to keep telling myself that I have a lot to offer & a lot of love to give, but I will keep smiling & praying while I wait.

True faith flowers from and through doubt.

If you never questioned your beliefs, - you are just a puppet dancing to somebody's strings. If God had wanted your mindless obedience, you would've been created without mind and without free will. But you have both so you can come to God of your own accord. Just look at the lives of saints, - most of them had gone through a dark night of the soul, and that's why their faith was so strong. The path to true faith always goes through doubt. So ask those questions you've always been afraid to ask, and find the answers, and then your faith will become unshakable.

You can let yourself be happier.

Happiness is a choice, although often it might seem otherwise. And it starts small. Today do something that makes you feel happy, and tell your friends about it.

The 60th High School Reunion

He was a widower and she a widow. They had known each other for a number of years, having been high school classmates and having attended class reunions in the past, without fail. This 60th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles. They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high, with the widower throwing admiring glances across the table . . . and the widow smiling coyly back at him. Finally during one dance, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?" After about 6 seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes.... yes I will!" Needless to say, the evening ended on a happy note for the widower. However, the next morning he was troubled. Did she say "Yes!" or did she say "No?" He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over-and-over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank. He remembered asking the question, but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation, he picked up the phone and called her. First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening. As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her, "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No?'" "Why you silly man," she replied, "I said 'Yes. Yes I will!' And I meant it with all my heart!" The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat. Then she continued. "And I'm so glad you called, because I couldn't remember who asked me!"

You need to maintain a balance between your needs and others' needs.

Yes, it's not an easy balance to keep, but try you must. Give too much, drain yourself, and there is nothing left only bitter space. Give too little, become a cork, and you block the flow of God's love through you. Keep on balancing.
