Timeless Lesson In Working Toward Something Worthwhile

Posted in Cherished memories, childhood, Children, Family, Gratitude, Inspiration, Life, Luxury, Musing, Parenting, Thought For Today on March 15, 2015 by Morguie

Thought for today —

 

   “All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.”

― Pope Paul VI

Anything worth having requires working a bit harder for. Very few things in life can be better appreciated that that which requires a fair amount of desire and determination…dedication and elbow grease to acquire.

Children now seldom understand this without being put to the task. SO much is taken for granted…so much is expected and is often received without the benefit of the lesson of what it is to actually earn it.  It is important for us to remember our own longing for a certain little ‘luxury’ or special item so that we can give the reward of this lesson to our own children.

It is no surprise that here in America, very few people have managed to put away any measurable amount of  earnings into a savings account…with the ample variety of credit or installment plans, folks who want something NOW often get it NOW. Sometimes it’s good to step back and save for extras…it helps us to realize what we feel about that thing’s necessity in our life by taking the time to gradually save up and pay for it in cold, hard cash.  Many impulsive purchases would be avoided as well as the debt load that keeps many a soul awake with worry.

Can we go back, or has the world of ‘instant gratification’ moved beyond the point of no return?

Sometimes we wonder about this  —- especially during those occasions when we find ourselves longing for kinder, simpler times of our past. Somehow all of the comforts of today do not quite give that gentle happiness and joy…we wonder, again, what the magic is that seems to be lacking.

The sense that sacrifice and struggle add a little more appreciation for things we hold dearer? Perhaps that’s it.

Then again, we awaken to the current moment,  admitting that everything seems a little sweeter when looking back with a sentimental heart.

Peace to all…and thanks for coming by!

A Catchy Tune for the “Silent Majority”

Yesterday we happened to be seated at our club luncheon with Mr. Emmitt Luttrell…turns out he’s been in the music business for years.

Anyhow, his song, “Silent Majority” was apparently working its way up the U.K. Indie chart, recently.

As an American, this song was meant to resonate with American citizens who are disturbed by the current state of affairs here. All of the Free World ought be concerned about the extraordinary

danger the people have been put in…

Please pass it forward if you love your freedom.

Thanks everybody!!

Can You Relate To This?

Money

This poignant clip is about saving up for a dream…and dipping into those savings along the way when life’s path was met with reasons or obstacles, emergencies or life’s unexpected kinks— to merit use of the hard-earned dream money.

I think most of us would be able to point to something in our lives that side-tracked us or put the dream on hold.

Usually, too, that thing which merited the funds diversion was something which gave us a sense of personal joy just to be able to help.

Thanks for coming by to share a thoughtful reminder that life indeed is too short.  What we make of it is everything, in the end.

I’d like to thank my sweetheart for passing this my way…to be able to share with all of you.

 

Hope you enjoy “Corvette Heaven” as much as we did!

 

Thank you,  baby.

Happiest 27th Birthday to C J’s Daughter, Holly

Posted in Beauty, Birthday, Children, Family, Grandchild, Gratitude, Groundhog's Day, Halloween, Inspiration, Life, Love, Parenting, Personal power, Thought For Today with tags , on February 2, 2015 by Morguie

Where has all the time gone, my beautiful little girl? The day you were born became my first day of motherhood. What a powerful thing it is — the love a mother feels for her baby! Words could never describe the feeling of love at that moment.

A love between a mother and her child that no earthly force can change or destroy.

I love you. I am so blessed to have been your mother. I am in awe of what you have grown to become as a human being.

So very, very proud of you…of both of my little girls…so much love for you both, each and every single day!

Happy, Happy Birthday, my “Holly Dolly.”

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
