When I was in elementary school my paternal grandfather passed away of a heart attack in the waiting room of an ER. Fast forward a few (maybe a few plus) years to 2000 when I was a senior in high school. My family received the call that my maternal grandfather had a heart attack and was being rushed to the ER. We did what we thought you do when someone has a heart attack; we packed our funeral clothes and...

A Powerful Thought

By Rick on July 21, 2017 / 3,108 views

There are two kinds of power, power over others and power over yourself. We automatically assume that having power means having power over others. Those who crave this sort of power have little personal power and most likely a large ego master whose whims they must satisfy. They do not realize that no one can ever have power over another. Many dictators have lead short lives believing this. The best you can do...

Everyone is valuable in their own way and has their own perks to them. Then, you have society which has their own structure to them and people follow them on a daily basis. How you need to live, what you need to wear, how and what to eat, etc. You want to be independent and carefree, but the world is a different animal and they are ruthless in putting their fist down to anybody who goes against them. We as...

It was 25 years ago. Every seat in the church was filled. But it wasn’t for a happy occasion. The coffin sat in the aisle by the front pews. Inside of it was my Mother. After a heroic 4 year battle Cancer had finally taken her body but not her spirit. She had only spent 55 years on this Earth but everyday she had made it a brighter place for those of us around her. I was only 25 years old that day of the...

We all have dreams we want to accomplish. Something you work hard for everyday so you can get closer to it. In the way though, you are going to face obstacles along the way whether you like it or not. Criticism is going to come to you swift and fast. For example, my lifelong dream is to be a NBA player and I know it will come with a lot of hard work and perseverance on my part. People doubt me now and...

How A Free Watch Changed My Life

By Jakeron on July 17, 2017 / 2,174 views

By Jakeron on July 17, 2017 / 2,174 views

Three months ago I was a slob by the very definition. I acted like a slob, dressed like a slob, and felt like a slob. I was unmotivated and by all accounts it looked like I didn’t have much a future. I was the kind of guy that would work at Walmart all his life and retire with-out doing anything. Well 3 months ago to the day, I was on my computer and saw an ad for a free watch. I had nothing...

By Ndivhuwo Madzivhandila on July 15, 2017 / 2,260 views

Have you ever stayed silent for a moment and observed life? What I saw was a world revolving itself, literally recycling over and over again. Human shares their life experiences of which was there before. We go through hardships, pain in different color of the paint but still was something that has been existing even before us. Yet we still cry, panic, fear where...

The cable went out this afternoon. I could see through my bedroom window the white trucks parked next to the pole and the cable guys working on the line. I didn’t mind too much, though. With all the channels I had on my television I rarely found something I wanted to watch. I put an old DVD on for my sons, retired to my bedroom, and put on some old records for myself. I lay down on my bed while the music...

The day we learned there were 14 of you we instantly knew our story of hope wasn’t just for us. You have been frozen now for almost 3 years. Sometimes my infertility feels like a distant memory and other times the pain and anguish of an empty womb floods my heart like it was just yesterday. My body went through a lot just in hopes that God would give me one of you. So when the Doctor called to tell us...

I had a rough time growing up. Was bullied, parents divorced, didn't have any friends and turned to drugs; I lost control of my life and lost contact with loved ones. I was depressed for a long time and didn't have any hope for the future; I tried to kill myself but I threw up the pills and survived. After the attempt, I sort of gained a whole new perspective on life, simply revolving around...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 10, 2017 / 3,264 views

"What is the meaning of life?" This is a question that we all ask ourselves at one point or another of our existence here. It is a question that I have asked myself many times over the years. The best answer that I ever came across was written by the great psychologist, Viktor Frankl who had survived the Nazi Concentration camps in World War II. Frankl wrote that "The meaning of life is to give...

Bondage or relationship means a lot in one’s life. Sometimes it’s hard to evaluate or comprehend the intensity of any sort of affiliation. Probably when we let ourselves governed or administrated by the one we consider as our precious person. But you know why we do this? Because we start considering people more reliable than our own selves. We start putting them and their opinions above ourselves...

There's so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn't. There's a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn't need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, sit in...

It was a Summer evening almost 30 years ago. I was rocking my baby boy in my arms and when he fell asleep I put him gently down into his crib for the night. My wife worn out from a long day of work was half napping and half watching TV in the living room. Not caring for the show I poured myself a glass of iced tea in the kitchen, took a lawn chair off our porch, and walked into the front yard to gaze at the...

S.B. and I were sunburned and dirty from traveling and being outside all day. We stood in the restaurant parking lot deciding, "do we really want to go into a public place looking like this?" Together we decided, "sure, lets go in, we are starving." That phrase changed us forever... We were walking to our seat in the crowded restaurant and we hear a shout, "HEY, I LIKE YOUR...
