"IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!"
" Take life all through, its adversity as well as its prosperity, its sickness as well as its health, its loss of its rights as well as its enjoyment of them, and we shall find that no natural sweetness of temper, much less any acquired phiosophical equanimity, its equal to the support of a uniform habit of kindness. Nevertheless, with the help of grace, the habit of saying kind words is very quickly formed, and when once formed, it is not speedily lost. Sharpness, bitterness, sarcasm, acute observaion, divination of motive,... all these things disappear when a man is earnestly conforming himself to the image of Christ Jesus".

Who has seen the Wind?
Who has seen the wind? Neither I or you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.
Who has seen the Wind?
Neither you or I:
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.
A favorite poem because I find the wind very intriguing. I can feel the breeze caress my face. I can see the trees gracefully dance, as the wind whistles through the leaves. I can see the wind lift the paper kite and carry it away and up towards the blue white clouds. As I watch the wind, I realize I can feel it, see it's effect on things, but I can't actually see it.. what color is it.. In this same way...I can feel the love of God in my Life and His touch. I cannot see God, but in the midst of the wind, is His still small voice which whispers His love everyday.
The Ocean and the White Sandy Beach .
I love the Ocean and the white sandy beach. The beauty, mystique and power it exudes alludes to the Power and majesty of God. The Ocean has healing powers that cleanses the soul, body and spirit.. When I am low in spirits and need to reflect and clear my mind, I head to the ocean, her powerful embracing hands, soothing strong sounds and the magnetic beauty of her azure is like soothing balm on my worried soul, heart and spirit. God made the ocean as a reflection of his artistic Beauty, Power and Majesty. When I walk the white beautiful sandy beach, and cast my gaze across the glimmering sun as it casts a golden glow in the horizon, I stand in awe as I behold the charm, serenity, majesty, beauty and power. The ocean brings calm in the midst of chaos. Next time you visit the Ocean, listen as she sings her music, the melody which should lighten your mood, as you find yourself soon dancing to it's rhythm.

'You can most certainly help others through your thoughts, and they can help you. Every good thought you send to another is a living force. However, the person you are sending the thought to has to be asking for the same thing you are sending. If the person does not want it, then they are not in harmony with your thought frequency, and it will not penetrate them.
You cannot create in another's life against their will, but if it is something they want, your thoughts are a real force that helps them'. Rhonda Byrne.
