Thankfulness - Aware and appreciative; grateful...then expressing:
Principle - A basic truth, law, or assumption…a rule or standard
What is the “Power of Gratitude?”
“Goals move you from the realm of dreams into reality. Goals focus your motivation on things you can achieve and obtain in the real world, [not] things you think that you would do if only the world, or you, were different.”

"If you can't paint by number, you are probably not called to redecorate the Sistine Chapel."
Don't live a life of frustration by insisting on doing what God has not gifted you to do. If you love baseball but can't hit, throw or catch better than most everyone else... Study the game, evaluate its strategy and become a coach, equipment manager or team sponsor. Fulfill your destiny by either "doing" what you love or "enabling…

GEORGE EBERS... "It's easy to understand what we like
This is a real WOW! Our lives are full of the familiar, the things we are used to, the things we are secure with and the things we have convinced ourselves are okay. These we hear over and over again; we like their sound and are comforted by the mantra we know by heart.
However, growth is…

"God created the cosmos with a word, so imagine what a word from Him could do for
The psalmist say it best in Psalm 119:11... "Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You." The first stage of faith-creation is to get the Word in your heart, read it, hear it and meditate on it, so it is transformed from information to wisdom.
Secondly, rely on the Word... Psalm 119:105... "Your word is a lamp to my…

Michel de Montaigne... "We are masters of nothing but our will."
This quote is so true! We are powerless to control the winds of life... circumstances, situations, other people and their attitudes; natural disasters, accidents and the unforeseen events that overtake us. Preparation can equip us and spiritual development can strengthen us for the unexpected, but only our inner-man can truly be under our…

"Don't tell God how big your storm is. Tell the storm how big your God is!"
There are plenty of opportunities to express faith: because, obviously, life is replete with challenges and difficulties. If we look at difficulties as an enemy we will always be marching off to war (in our mind) with an enemy that remains just out of reach. However, when we realize difficulties are simply part of the process (like plowing is part of the process of growing a…
John Wooden... "Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."
In this world of instant communication, it is likely that most things we hear are incomplete. The whole story takes a little longer than a twitter or a post to be fully appreciated; and will likely be understood differently when given time for all the…

Alan Alda ... "Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in."
As we scrub off the window to our soul, it is likely we will discover that we should adopt, adapt and adjust our presumptions. The greatness of serving God is that each day His creative force brings new light to our heart. Each day we have opportunity to come a little closer to His…

Charles Dudley Warner... "What small potatoes we all are compared to what we might have been if we had just plowed a little deeper."
It is amazing to consider the effort it takes to move from pretty-good to excellent. In so many things we are rendered average only because we don't apply ourselves wholeheartedly. We revel in being generalists; which makes us more available to…
Audrey Hepburn ... "Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
you'll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others."
Audrey was not only a great actress, but obviously a great believer in human potential! God gives us all "the measure of faith" necessary to live a successful life. The primary problem is, we let society,…
