One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope,...

By Celestia Barby on November 01, 2017 / 1,205 views

Bricks and stone that's what some people call there home, Unaware of the beauty of life and just creating a mess in order to survive. Time and dedication it takes to build your dreams, and if you are unaware of nature you will never believe. Believe in the power of your soul. Believe in the power of what your mind can hold. Believe in way your eyes can...

Lions Don't Have To Roar

By Les Brown on November 01, 2017 / 1,225 views

By Les Brown on November 01, 2017 / 1,225 views

Lions don't have to roar. There is power in silence, confidence, and persistence. Those who work don't talk, and those who talk don't work. Handle your business. Measure your efforts by results. Focus your time, energy, and activity on mastering and executing a plan. Avoid the energy draining practice of telling people what you're going to do. Instead, spend your time and effort in...

By Ladybug on October 31, 2017 / 1,326 views

Don’t let anyone bring you down so low as to hate them. Release them from the hold they have on you and continue on with peace in your heart. Life is short and is not worth wasting your time trying to figure people out or prove anything to them. The only person you have to prove anything to is yourself. Strive to be the best person you can possibly be, be...

This character made me nervous but i had no choice than...

I'm 18 and got my flu shot today. The nurse who vaccinated me was also 18 but dropped out of high school when she got pregnant at 16. There is more than one way to live a fulfilling life. I'm an 18 year old honors student with a 4.3 GPA and a near perfect SAT, but I have only held short summer jobs. She's an 18 year old who had to drop out of high school, but she is...

Dance In The Leaves Along The Way

By Joseph J. Mazzella on October 23, 2017 / 719 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on October 23, 2017 / 719 views

It is an old memory. It may even be a dream. The older I get the more the two seem to merge together at times. I was a little boy and I was falling backwards. I wasn’t afraid, however. In fact, I felt thrilled and safe at the same time. It was like I knew I couldn’t be hurt. Suddenly, my back made contact with something soft but crunchy as well. I was falling into a huge pile of freshly fallen...

By Kay Heitsch on October 21, 2017 / 503 views

The following is a personal letter I wrote to Dr. Peale after Todd died. Dr. Peale published the letter in Plus The Magazine of Positive Thinking in 1990. He also used it as the introduction to his book, Have A Great Day-Every Day! Dear Dr. Peale, I became acquainted with your writing strictly by accident. If I had known you were a minister, I would not have touched your books with a...

First Day In Church

By Sarah on October 21, 2017 / 514 views

It was nearly time to go, and I had managed to work myself up into a state of high anxiety. I'd been to church before, but never for something that wasn't a baptism, wedding, or funeral, and definitely not to a church of this denomination. My boyfriend had asked me to go, and I wondered what it meant for our relationship. The service was scheduled at 8 am, and I had been up since 6 am...

Always Look Forward

By SL on October 21, 2017 / 1,034 views

By SL on October 21, 2017 / 1,034 views

I know it's a human thing to look back at the things in life that we sometimes, if not always regret. Whether it's doing drugs, to getting to know someone, to date someone, to be with someone, we all have regrets, we're not perfect. So many people look back at life, at their regrets, saying how they regret doing this, or talking to that person, or getting to know that girl/guy, I used to...

What's Love Got To Do With It?

By Kay Heitsch on October 20, 2017 / 515 views

By Kay Heitsch on October 20, 2017 / 515 views

If I decorate my house perfectly with matching pillows, perfect lighting and all the right colors, but do not show love, I'm just another decorator. If I slave away in the kitchen, making perfect meals with healthful ingredients, but do not show love, I'm just another cook. If I work at the soup kitchen, visit people in nursing homes and give all that I have to charity, but do not...

No Good Deed

By Joseph J. Mazzella on October 19, 2017 / 620 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on October 19, 2017 / 620 views

Someone online sold my mailing address so now instead of just getting letters from the few charities I can afford to support, I am also getting letters from a dozen other charities asking for my help. One of my more cynical friends spouted the old adage, “No good deed ever goes unpunished.” I just smiled and didn’t argue knowing it wouldn’t change his mind. My own mind, however, was...

Is There Something We Can Do When We're Hurting?

By Kay Heitsch on October 19, 2017 / 611 views

By Kay Heitsch on October 19, 2017 / 611 views

Is there something we can do to help ourselves when we are hurting? From personal experience, I think there is. If we're feeling down and depressed I believe it works out best to turn on some good music, read some uplifting type books, exercise, and get out around people who are happy. In Heb 13:15 it talks about offering a "sacrifice of praise." Sometimes it really is a...

By Kay Heitsch on October 17, 2017 / 1,209 views

My husband Bill likes to buy toys that our grandson Eli who's 6 can put together. Some of these toys say that they're for a 6 year old, when in reality, they are not. One particular toy Bill bought was a real challenge. There were many tiny pieces that all needed to be taken apart to even start. Bill sat down at the table and got out his little knife and was cutting them as Eli tried to...
