I often think about this. I had so many preconceived notions on what I could and could not do…but in the end…the two greatest strengths smile at me and call me mama. Wherever your road takes you…let it be blessing filled in all strengths and weaknesses.
Cygnus Loop (also known as the Veil Nebula) - formed after a shockwave propagated through the material ejected during the supernova - subsequently heating up the surrounding material - causing it to glow. The nebula, which covers an expanse of space that is 6 times larger than the full moon, is ~ 2,500 light-years from Earth in Cygnus. Astronomers believe the supernova ignited 5-10,000 years ago; the light from the event first arrived on Earth at the end of the last ice age.
My hope is in The Lord. Even when the antichrist comes Jesus is King. God's in control. Pray for those who do not believe. They are lost and don't even know it. I pray their eyes are opened to the truth. The Lord wants everyone to come to repentance.
An uplifting perspective from my dear friend @idillionaire. Highly recommend following her for more enlightening posts like this: "Stop overthinking worrying and stressing yourself out. Everything will be okay. It may not seem like it at the moment but when you let go and allow yourself to feel that sense of inner ease great things happen. End Resistance: Have you noticed that most of what we resist or fight continues to happen in our lives? Just like a magnet we pull towards us the thoughts…
11) Even though the Gale/Katniss pairing has many positive qualities, fans of Peeta have also argued that Gale's focus on the war, particularly in the third novel is what drove Katniss and him apart. For Katniss, the death of Prim is one of the biggest losses, and she does (on some level) blame Gale for her death. He doesn't keep his promise in the end.
Light Yagami and Kira/// The difference between the two is drastic in character, and you can tell this when 'Kira' gives up the notebook to Ryuk again to prove his innocence to become 'Light' again. 'Light' is truly justice and is happy enough with the world as is, while 'Kira' is power hungry calling it justice. Light and Kira are two very different people in one mind (@/BeADollAndLeave)
"It surfaces neither at the most opportune moment nor in the most convenient... it'll put you face to face with endless obstacles, but in the end, none of that will matter because it's how you overcome its obstacles that will define your love ... Love is ultimately the best thing that will happen to you." I quite like that.
Someone Else Is Happy With Less Than You Have, Wooden Sign Saying
Amen! I'm so blessed that my children and our family aren't obsessed over materialistic things and high end things. We are truly happy with everything we have. We have both worked our asses off to give our children what they have, provide for ourselves, and accomplish raising children who don't need the finer things in life to be happy. We don't need huge houses, fancy cars, designer clothes, etc..., to be happy. Sure we have a nice house, a nice car, some designer clothes, but we don't pride ourselves in those things and neither do our children. We pride ourselves in the hard work we do daily, the hard work our children do daily in their little farm, the hard work that we put into our children as their parents to steer them in the right direction. We pride ourselves in non-materialistic things because in the end, it doesn't matter what cars you drove, how big your home was, how much jewelry you owned, none of that matters, all that matters in the end is the love of family you have at your side.
Character & Scene: A girl discovers a mansion on the opposite end of a magic lake. She finds herself never wanting to return to her old world despite the great costs of staying. Think Coraline meets that one episode of the Twilight Zone with the kids and the pool. (6)
Dreamer Tip: Look at the evening sky and celebrate your place in the universe. When it feels like the world is on your shoulders, it’s helpful to remember that we’re a speck on that world, which is a speck in the greater universe. #liveyourdream #gratitude www.liveyourdream.org
I actually have this on a paper on my fridge. And have posted it on my FB wall before. So this gives me an idea now--to print it on a pretty paper and put it in a frame! Let's see if I make that happen before, uhm, the end of this year.
Looking at this every time I forget how far I've come on this weight loss journey! Each pound that has gone away is me reclaiming a little bit more of who God made me to be--a healthy, amazing, beautiful woman that He is crazy about. I had forgotten this little piece of wisdom at the end of last year.
To end this off, I leave you with this photo. Possible. Everything is possible. Everything we think is impossible, is actually possible. We just need to put in effort in order to achieve our dreams and goals. From the wise words of Wu Tang, remember: "Don't chase people. Be you, do your own thing and work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you and stay."
