How to give 100% at work...
12% on Monday,
40% on Wednesday,
20% on Thursday, and
5% on Friday.
Help me to remember...When I'm having a bad day and it seems that people are trying to wind me up, it takes 42 muscles to frown, 28 to smile and only four to extend my arm and smack someone in the mouth!
Caress you when you sigh
It’s a hug sent from Heaven
From a loved one way up high.
If a soft and tender raindrop
Lands upon your nose
They’ve added a small kiss
As fragile as a rose.
If a song you hear fills you
With a feeling of sweet love
It’s a hug sent from Heaven
From someone special up above.
If you awaken in the morning
To a bluebird’s chirping song
It’s music sent from Heaven
To cheer you all day long.
If tiny little snowflakes
Land upon your face
It’s a hug sent from Heaven
Trimmed with Angel lace.
So keep the joy in your heart
If you’re lonely my dear friend
Hugs that are sent from Heaven
A broken heart will mend.

We came back from our trip to Helen. Helen is always one of our romantic get away where all of us enjoy. During our fishing trip, we brought home 23 fishes. We let few smaller ones back into the water for a later day.
We got back by evening and had few of Chris' friends at our place to celebrate 4th of July with some fireworks.
of joining with something greater than yourself.
You are greater than you can imagine.
It is through your willingness to surrender to this
that all that You are will be made known to you.

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary to separate ourselves from humanity and the sinfulness that pervades it so, a God given conscience and the Holy Spirit call us to action.
We hold these truths to be self evident, that God in six days created the heavens and the earth and all that are in them, that all of nature bears witness to Him so that all are held accountable, that the fall of man sent the world into sin, that God sent His son to redeem his children, through Jesus Christ we may reestablish the relationship with God that was originally intended for man in the garden of Eden.
To secure these rights we need simply call upon the name of Jesus and ask forgiveness for our iniquities and transgressions. When we find the world bearing down upon us we are called to battle and to equip ourselves with the full armor of God. We are to place upon ourselves the belt of truth around our waist, the breastplate of righteousness, our feet fitted with the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and carry the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. It is right for us, as citizens not of this world, but of a heavenly kingdom, to do so.
Whenever the prince of this dark world becomes destructive, as he has already proven himself to be so, it is our duty to separate ourselves from him and declare ourselves an independent nation, a kingdom of priests, citizens of a heavenly kingdom.
Satan, the current ruler of this world, has shown many grievances against us and we do so list them that all may know why we leave this world behind. He has murdered our brethren in the nations of this world yearning for the light of the gospel and killed our missionaries. He has killed the unborn children, still in the womb, having not a chance at life. He has invaded governments across the world and kept godly men and women from public office. He has shut the door to prayer in schools and caused evolution to be taught in place of the truth. He has invaded our churches, leading many astray with ideas of a one world religion and more than one way to heaven. He has lied to us in all areas of life, always trying to get us to reject the truth. He has lead our children away in rebelliousness, seducing them with drugs and sex. He has destroyed our families, breaking up marriages pledged before God as a commitment that would allow no man to separate. He has filled our mind with philosophies that deny the existence of God. And he has mocked God and attempted to place himself in a higher position than God himself.
For these reasons, we declare ourselves independent from this world. We will fight Satan, knowing that he will not allow us to leave without a fight. We will call upon God for strength. We WILL be victorious for we know already who will win this battle. Satan’s time is short and his sole desire is to drag as many of us to hell as he can. We will not allow this. For we are blood bought and sanctified by the blood of Jesus Christ.
For these reasons, we claim our independence and look forward to the coming kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he has gone ahead of us to prepare.
This is a call to arms for all Christians. We have been lukewarm and weak for too long. Satan has made a mockery of our churches and has stormed our doors, dragging away many with his lies. It is time to take back what is ours.

At noon, when the lunch whistle blows, two thousand men and women immediately stop work and leave the building.
"Your workers, they're escaping!" cries the visitor. "You've got to stop them."
"Don't worry, they'll be back," says the Chinese.
At exactly one o'clock the whistle blows again, and all the workers return from their break.
When the tour is over, the manufacturer turns to his guest and says, "Well, now, which of these machines would you like to order?"
"Forget the machines," says the visitor. "How much do you want for that whistle?"

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind."
- Romans 12:2
Since my vacation, I've been sleeping at odd hours and waking up at even odder hours. Sleep is God's contrivance given to man what he cannot do for himself while he is awake. God created the mechanics of our mind and gave us the Spirit to counsel us. When these two are working together in harmony our mind is renewed and transformed - both by natural and supernatural processes as we sleep.
Here are the 5 R's about sleep.
Befoe going to sleep, reflect on the decisions and problems of the day that burden your mind. Draw them back into your consciousness
Write down your thoughts - preferably in a journal. They could inspire many.
Bring your requests before the Lord who counsels your mind as you sleep. One thing we should not forget to ask is wisdom.
As we lay down to sleep, remember that we are leaning towards God. God's eyes never close and therefore, there is no use for us to stay up ruminating over our daily problems. Surrender all of them to God and allow Him to do for you what we cannot do for ourself while we are awake.
There is a reason to rejoice as God fearfully and wonderfully made our brain and has promised us the gift of Holy Spirit.
