From my friend Mr. Osborne comes this beautiful Christian prayer and an uplifting music video as a blessing for the world to see and hear.

Father, I pray that all war on this earth would end

That we would all live in peace and harmony

We have to stop this killing of the soul

To know that only in loving You can we truly be made whole

I turn the TV on and the stories are all the same

Of hatred and indifference, of poverty and pain

I see the crying mothers holding dying babies in their arms

Children searching through a garbage dump for rotting food

Teenagers selling their bodies to survive

The growing sea of hopelessness and despair

People in the hell of their addictions believing no one cares

The abused who ask as they cry out in their agony, Please, won’t anyone love me?

Lord, what can we do when so many are suffering? Then, He speaks to my heart to say this word to you, that you can be there for…

Let us celebrate the every day heroes and heroines. Do you know one?

Every day I run into people who have done amazing things that defy normalcy. In a supermarket line or in the places I go through the day. I pray to meet people like that who have contributed something to the world or defy the odds.

Do you know one of those amazing people?

That person doesn’t have to be a doctor, fireman or police officer but someone you know who made a difference and who is continually making a difference, doing the right thing-without thinking of payment or money, but thinking of the greater good of all.

Helen Keller was my heroine since I was 9 years old, the same year I was diagnosed with epilepsy, began cooking, began playing the piano and began writing. When God handed dealt the deck of life, I have always realized that no matter how much adversity I have experienced, the deck was stacked in my favor. My abilities far outweighed any disability.HelenKeller3.28.2011

I look forward to reading the stories as they come in on this one!

On Scent & Travel

Originally posted on Nicole Trilivas:

“I’m not advocating for the purchase of an expensive bottle [of perfume] every time you go to a cousin’s wedding. But for me, the act of dignifying a journey with its own scent can be enough to elevate a humble getaway to vacation status. It’s nice to find something that has a connection to wherever you are, but the actual perfume is secondary. The point is to create a sense memory for the experience that has, for you, no precedent. I’ve worn the same perfume since my twenty-third birthday, when I treated myself to my first bottle of En Passant, but from the moment I get in the cab to the airport, I like to wear something different, unfamiliar.”

Yes! I do this too. The best side effect is that years later, your'll get a whiff of fragrance and it will take you right back. Yes! I do this too. The best side effect is that years later, your’ll get a whiff of fragrance and it will take…

IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A MENTOR.

Originally posted on dynamicpreneur's blog:

If you examine any successful person they typically have one thing in common: a mentor. Nearly every successful person in history had someone who they could confide in and learn from when times were tough. I want to highlight the importance of having a mentor in business and entrepreneurship.

To be successful in life it is very important to have a mentor, a coach, someone with more experience than you, someone who is in a position in life that you desire to be in the future.

Most people underestimate the value of a mentor and this is the biggest reasons for failure in business. A mentor offers valuable insight to things that only experience can teach as well as a host of other things. They have fruit on their tree which shows they have paid the price to be in a position to offer wisdom to you if you need…

When the Grasshopper Teaches the Master

Originally posted on You're Not the Boss of Me:

Little Man Business cut out 72dpi-resized-201.jpgThere is a lot to be said for learning from younger people. While we veterans can teach the invaluable lessons of the past, they can teach us the path to the future. And that is worth paying attention to.

For instance, people of my generation often grapple with the wonders of technology with varying degrees of success. Some of us are totally immersed and intrigued by what can be accomplished in a wireless world, (including all the cool toys that come along with it). Others of us are hard pressed to know how to turn on our computers, if indeed we even own one. But, no matter where we are on the technology learning curve, the one thing we know for sure is that to learn it, we have to consult those who have the skill and it’s highly doubtful that we will find this expertise in people older than…

Secret To A Life Of Longevity?

There is no secret for a long life, you were mostly lucky that you avoided the many pitfalls of dying from car accidents, polluted environment, war ravaged countries, famine plagued region…

In any study of longevity, you have to sort out the batches in your survey according to standard of living in a community, health status when born, health care facility and preventive care before reaching age of 5, opportunities for viable education and for exercising your talents…

For equal conditions, those who continue their education during most of their life, keep reading, thinking, reflecting and engaged in social community have higher odds to live longer than those who focus solely on physical exercises and food diet programs.

There are a few life scientists who believe that the knowledge and technologies are available to lengthen life to 1,000 years within 3 decade time.  People…

Today’s Positive Thought and Poetry (Perhaps I am ready)

Originally posted on Craig Kimbrough and MeditativeZone with PositiveAmbassador.org :


What is my next move?
Where do I go from here?
Where will I be most happy?

What does my destiny look like?
Where do you you want me to go?
Please talk to me and show me the way?

Can you show me in a dream?
Can you show me right now?
However you give it to me, I will be glad to receive it.

I will let go of my own thoughts,
let go of my own ideas.
I just need you to show me the way

I just want to be truly in touch.
I want to feel it at all times
I want to be at one

I want to be back in my place
I want to share the light,
give the light, be the light

This is what I want my life to be about
This is how I want to spend my days.
