So love and enjoy the people who treat you right.. seek them out, regular-like! Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. Look carefully in each picture for the cat as it makes its way down from the roof to the dog.

So love and enjoy the people who treat you right.. seek them out, regular-like! Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. Look carefully in each picture for the cat as it makes its way down from the roof to the dog.

The story behind this picture is this:
Every day – at the same time – she, the dog, waits for him, cat.
Sometimes she barks to call him.
He comes; they rub and greet each other and they go for a walk.
They have done this for 5 years and no, they don’t belong to the same owners. The owners didn’t know until neighbors, seeing them together so frequently, commented to the cat’s owner, who then followed the dog home and discovered it was a distance away, not in a house close by or next door. How it started no one knows.

Wouldn’t it be great to have friends like this, always there, no words needed, they just intuitively recognize the value of each other in their lives and act accordingly. Live, Laugh, Love. Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.

A wise person once said, “There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy.” It is a choice.

Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

LOVE IS….. a many splendored thing…. like a clear sparkling diamond, it is multi-faceted, deep, real, lasting…… and what else?

LOVE IS..... a many splendored thing.... like a clear sparkling diamond, it is multi faceted, deep, real, lasting...... and what else?

Love is not what “the world” defines as love. Love is not “Lust” nor “sexual attraction”. “Beauty” is an attraction that can deceive. Satan, was a beautiful angel. He is beautifully deceptive today. (Read “THE BEAUTIFUL SIDE OF EVIL” someday.) The flesh would have you believe that self gratification is “love”. But that is, “self-love”, just self gratification, with a barter added on. I’ll give you this if you give me that. Lets look at what REAL LOVE is……. You’re going to want it the next time. Lets gather the truth about it.

Tears are healthy. Tears relieve emotional pain and stress, perhaps because of the endorphins released. So, go on, cry until you can’t anymore.

Tears are healthy. Tears relieve emotional pain and stress, perhaps because of the endorphins released. So, go on, cry until you can't anymore.

Thus far, there is no specific, valid scientific evidence to why we feel relieved after a good cry during traumatic episodes. Unlike reflex tears (allergies, when we get something stuck in our eyes, or when cutting an onion), which is made up of 98% water, emotional tears have a much higher concentration of hormones and proteins. According to Dr. William Frey II, Ph. D., biochemist and tear researcher at Ramsey Medical Center (Minneapolis, Minnesota), the scientific conclusion his team found is that the tears shed during emotional crying gets rid of stress chemicals/hormones/toxins accumulated in your brain during a stressful trauma. Another theory is that the tears release endorphins, the chemical that makes us happy.

Practice His Presence!

Practice His Presence!

I really hate it when I am on the train and I realize I forgot one of my electronic devices still plugged in at home! As my eyes were drawn to the kindle plugged in under my purse, I said aloud, “Thank You!” Rick, who does NOT pay attention to everything I say said,
“Who are you talking to?”
“Jesus.”
Most of you know It would have been to easy to overlook as I grabbed my purse and rushed out the door.
