Your worth is immeasurable

We tend to judge ourselves
And others
By the visible harvest reaped

We forget that
Some seeds we sow
May produce a harvest
Invisible to us

Words of encouragement and
Acts of kindness
Have a ripple effect
Often reaching much farther
Than the eye can see

The world
Would have us believe
That a persons worth
Can be measured

Truth shows us
Our worth
Is immeasurable

Comparison

Comparison
Is a threat to your individuality
There will always be
Someone smarter than you
Braver than you
More attractive than you
Richer than you
More enlightened than you
It doesn’t matter
They are not you
They can never be you
Let others be what they are
Envy them not
Only strive to be the best version
Of yourself

Ray of hope

Darkness
Has never comprehended light
It never will
That does not change the fact
That from the moment
The command was given
“Let there be light.”
Light prevails

What causes darkness to grow Diminishing light
Or
Light to shine brighter
Pushing back darkness

We control it
You and me
With each choice we make
With the thoughts we allow
With the actions we take
With the words we speak

Darkness tries to close in on us
Creating strife
Stealing joy
But light is always there
Waiting for us to choose it

Sometimes it’s hard to find
When our heart feels empty
And darkness clouds our mind

A single spark of hope
Is all it takes

Wealth unaware

Something to ponder:

Once upon a time there was a man who owned property under which millions of gallons of oil existed, but he was unaware of it and went about his life struggling to survive. One day an exploratory company convinced him to lease the land and allow drilling on it. Within a short time the well struck oil and became a top producer. Instantly the man became a multi-millionaire.

What if no one had come along and convinced him to take a risk on their drilling lease?

Or

What if he had taken the time to learn about oil deposits, invested in equipment and discovered and marketed the oil himself?

Within each of us there exists an intangible untapped substance more valuable than oil. Yes, I believe there is something special in you, in each of us. Why else would our Creator make no two alike?

We go about life programmed by the world to survive from one paycheck to the next, but there is so much more available to us. Wealth means different things to different people. Whatever it means to you it is within your reach. Take time to learn about things that interest you, discover your talent, advance your skill, be authentic.

The world tells us we can’t.
God tells us we can do all things.

Philippians 4:13 KJV

Playing simply

As super powers

Play with worlds

And Technology

Like a virus

Grows

Manipulating

Instead of connecting us

I stick with simple things

Picnics

Dancing under the stars

Sending fresh flowers

Hand written letters

Visiting family and friends

Where laughter is plentiful

And love never ends
