THE Truth

(Curious about the thoughts that come from this…)
All of us have said at one point- well what if God was one of us? I bet he would do the same. Truthfully, God was one of us. As a human through his son Jesus, he took us in, accepted us, forgave us, loved us and all else. Then, in his human form; we killed him. Yet, God still helps us, forgives us and loves us. Wow…shocker.
Think about it- would you be able to forgive someone for killing your child because your child was not the way they were? Would you be okay with constant criminal activities, people going against you and all else against your wishes?
He forgives us for EVERYTHING. Yes, exactly- wow.
It is crazy how much He loves us no matter what happens over time.
Lord, wow. Thank-you for loving us so much. I cannot fathom it. Really, forgiving even the tiniest of things seems hard so that is amazing! To know you forgive the smallest things times a million and still hold love for us blows me away.
Thank-you for your forgiveness.

A miracle is a marvel that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause. In other words, a miracle is an act from God.

With something as small as a speck of dust to something as large as the world along with the light around it; those all are miracles.

Go even further with the creation of the world and light (sun, moon, stars); the great Creator even made all the other planets out there. Miracle!

Back here on Earth; weather, vegetation, landscapes, water, est. all come from our Creator as well; miracle!

Continuing with nature, all insects, winged animals, slithering things, swimming and legged animals all had to come from somewhere as well; our awesome Creator! Miracle!!

Then there is us. He created all of us to be our individual selves. We have our own bodies, our own hearts, our own feelings, our own minds and so on. This individualism work is a gift as we have: a) different names
b) different body types
c) different jobs
d) different languages
e) different places to live

and on and on it goes. Miracle!

The Creator goes even further with his humanity creation. He gives all of us strength to face each day. Yes, troubles come but he helps us through them, no matter what; we just have to be bold enough to listen. He lets us choose our actions freely. Miracle!

He has made individual reasons for all of us billions of people to be on this Earth that no one else can perform but us. That is mind blowing; he has that many plans/ideas; miracle!

We should all be grateful to this Creator for creating everything in and around this world. If you claim things came from specks of dust; those specks had to come from somewhere and have something different in each of them for all of this individualism we get in water, vegetation, animals, sun images, moon images, the stars, everything and us; miracle!

His words became flesh; miracle. He deserves our praise and attention to His plans that he has made for us. Life will be (and is) beautiful because of Him and all He has done for us:
a) created the world and us
b) let us remain after a lot of crazy actions on our part; sin
c) gave us his son who died for all our sins. Multiply your mistakes by billions and then you’ll know what He sees everyday and still loves us all; wow, miracle!

Thank-you Lord God for all the miracles you have preformed up to now. I’m going to try and live by your will to thank you more.

With all my love,

Act React Play

Act React Play


Let’s start at the very beginning; a very good place to start
When you read you begin with A, B, C
When you perform you begin with act, react play
(Act, react, play)
Act, react, play; the first few themes just happen to be act, react, play
(Act, react, play)
Act, react, play, speak, dress, dance, sing


Act to anyone and everything
React to actions played on you
Play for everyone to believe it’s true
Speak for all to hear you
Dress in the era and theme of the show
Dance may be used to brighten it up
Sing to make all smile

That will lead us to a great show!





True, life has no guarantees
. However, there is one exception; God.
He will love you and guide you daily.
Believe in him and trust his will; he will lead you down the right directions.
Listen to your heart; that is him speaking to you.
Let go and trust God as he holds your future in his hands.
He knows all and that is a guarantee.

Friendships come in many forms
At least one form can have immense power on you
It can advise you; make you think and make you feel better/happy
Everything else positive is in this form as well
This form is presented to you in music
All singers can do this but only one can speak to your soul
When that happens, you feel so grateful to the singer for helping
Martina McBride does this for many
She can hold your heart up in the sun gently with her voice
All of her songs inspire people one way or the other; we can all run to her
People feel close to her and feel a song of hers was just for them
Close to the marker where you call someone a friend is how most see her
So Martina, even though we do not know each other solely
Thank-you for being a friendawesomesaying


The Voice That Speaks Within



There are plenty of voices in our heads daily. It is how we manage our jobs, relationships and other daily routines. There are two very distinct voices though. One you should pay attention to and one you should not.

The one that you hear and it gives you a slight tingle along with warm feelings is the one you should pay attention to. It is coming from deep within your heart and that is God. He has many positive reasons for whatever He requests and it will guide you to where you need to be. There will be plenty of blessings coming to you from listening to His voice.

The other one you have to be aware of. The plans sound and feel good; at first but in the end, more pain will come your way. You will feel any amount of greed with your uneasy happy feelings coming from this voice. Those are meant to fool you so you think all is well with these actions. This is the serpent talking to you then. You feel light headed afterwards and say yes just because you are not aware of the trickery. The road may seem short and simple but will lead to long and destructible.

The voice to listen to is the calm and gentle one of your Creator in your heart. That may not start out easy but in the end, all will be at peace as that is what He is; peace.

The Lord loves you and knows how to guide you so listen to your heart and trust Him. All will turn out for the best.
