Do Your Life A Favor; REST


(Image found in Google search)

We work hard, at our jobs, in our homes, with our children, in life in general.  There is a reward for working hard.   In like manner, there is a need for rest.  At the end of the day, put everything down.  Take time for yourself.  Take time with the ones you love.  Enjoy the beauty of relaxation.  Work will always be present in some form.  The way we are diligent and calculated about how we need to get things done, we too need to be diligent and calculated about resting ourselves.  We cannot be at our best, if we are not physically and mentally at our best.  Do your life a favor.  Rest!

What do you see?  Life is about perception.  Oft times the way we see a situation has major impact on the outcome of the situation.  Find the beauty in whatever is going on.  Even when it seems dark and gloom, look for the positive, the silver lining.  In doing so, you may find the joyous music that will calm your spirit and march you right into victory.

Sweet Reward!

You have the power to accomplish whatever you desire.  Don’t be deterred because what you desire is not happening instantly.  A cake is made in the oven, not a microwave.  So keep doing what you’re doing.  Keep pressing through.  The time it takes should not cause you to lose focus of your goal.  Don’t stop until you get your sweet reward!

Let’s make today great on purpose!

When times seem to get progressively worse.  When it seems you’re on your last ounce of strength.  When your days seems to be the darkest, don’t lose heart.  Joy is coming.  Light is coming.  It’s said, the harder the struggle, the greater the victory.

How great is your victory?

Don’t lose heart, the fight is almost over!

Make It Home



I awake in the morning

Afraid to walk out the door

There’s no telling

What the world has in store

Fall to my knees

Purify myself

Feed my temple

Getting a grip on my mental health

Can’t lay down

Facing my fears

Kissing my loves

Hiding my tears

Behind the wheel

I pray

Make clear

My way

Unsure of what actions to take

What words to say

An unnatural smile

I’ll check in now


Calculated steps

Not trying to piss off

Make no one upset

Not too slow

Not too quick

Not too soft

Not to aggressive

But just right

If there’s such a thing

Being it’s all relative

On another’s sight

Day’s turning to night

Back behind the wheel

Lord, please don’t let me see

Those red and blue lights

I just want to end

Where I began

Resting in arms

As my loves

Find rest

In the arms

They find strength in
