think of the magic we can create in
with simple but profound words like
I appreciate you,
I need you,
I love you.
Now ... go out and share those with someone today,
and create a few more of your own along the way,
and watch the smiles
and the magic begin!
The appearance of things change
according to our emotions,
and thus we see magic and beauty in them,
while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.
In all the universe, in all
time, you are the only you.
Never have molecules come together exactly like you,
never again will your footsteps be repeated upon this earth.
Your strength is the strength someone can count on,
your life is the life that can make a difference.
Too often we
underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word,
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

the promise of a new start, a new day,
a new opportunity to make a difference in your life

You control your own destiny,

"The HeartMath Solution"
At this very moment,
there are people only you can reach,
and differences only you can make.
I believe every
person has a heart,
and if you can reach it,
you can make a difference.
It's easy to make a buck.
It's a lot tougher
to make a difference.
only when we truly know and understand
that we have a limited time on earth,
and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up
that we will begin to live each day to the fullest,
as if it were the only one we had.
We don't get to
choose how we're going to
die. Or when.
We can only decide how we're going to live.
A real bad habit we all have
is either living in the past or worrying about the future
instead of living right here in the present.
LIVE IN THE PRESENT!
Think of just one

Do you have it clearly in your mind's eye?
Now ... all you need to do is move it to your heart,
believe in it passionately,
and believe that you deserve it.
Now ... make it happen!
We must sail sometimes with the wind
and sometimes against it -
but sail we must,
and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
A MARVELOUS WORK AND A WONDER
People travel to wonder at the heights of a mountain,
at the huge waves of the sea,
at the long courses of the rivers,
at the vast compass of the ocean,
at the circular motion of the stars;
and they pass by themselves without wondering.
If I feel depressed I
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.

Have you ever see a
sunset in a perfect
Or noticed the masterpiece we call a butterfly
We are a witness to these miracles each day
May it always be this way
Mary Ann Kennedy
From her song
We Share The Earth
from her CD
The Trail Less Traveled
are aware that you are the force that is Life,
Miracles happen all the time,
because those miracles are
performed by the heart.
The heart is in direct communion with the human
and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head,
something inside you changes;
your heart opens another heart, and true
love is possible.

There are two ways to live your
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is to live as though everything is a miracle.
If God brings you to it,
He will bring you through it.
Michael P. Aycock
Making miracles is hard work;
most people give up before they happen.
When we do the best that we can,
we never know what miracle is wrought in our life,
or in the life of another.
When you know who
when your mission is clear
and you burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will;
no cold can touch your heart;
no deluge can dampen your purpose.
You know that you are alive.
Here is the test to find out whether your mission on earth is
If you're still alive, it isn't.
Ah, good ol' "Mission: Impossible"!
"Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, will be to ... "
We ALL have a mission, a purpose, for why we are alive at this time,
in our own individual families and communities.
It's imperative that, if we haven't already discovered what our mission
we must not waste another moment in doing so.
The sooner we discover it,
the sooner we can begin to make a difference,
and fulfill the purpose for why we are here.
The truth is
finest moments are most likely to occur
when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable,
unhappy, or unfulfilled.
For it is only in such moments, propelled
by our discomfort,
that we are likely to step out of our ruts
searching for different ways or truer answers.
M. Scott Peck, MD.
OUR NEXT MOMENT
Realize that now, in this moment of time, you are creating.
You are creating your next moment.
That is what's real.
"The Hidden Power of the Heart"
Any life, no matter how long and complex it may be,
is made up of a single moment -
the moment in which someone finds out, once and for all,
who they are.
Jorge Luis Borges
most important thing you
can do to achieve your goals
is to make sure, that as soon as you set them,
you begin to immediately create the momentum to reach them.
More holiness give me,
more strivings within,
more patience in suffering
More sorrow for sin,
more faith in my Savior
more sense of His care,
more joy in His service,
more purpose in prayer.
More gratitude give me,
more trust in the Lord,
more pride in His glory,
more hope in His word,
more tears for His sorrows,
more pain at His grief,
more meekness in trial,
more praise for relief.
More purity give me,
more strength to overcome,
more freedom from earth-stains,
more longing for home,
more fit for the kingdom,
more used would I be,
more blessed and holy -
more, Savior, like thee.
Philip Paul Bliss
If you don't go after
what you want, you'll never have it.
If you don't ask, the answer is always no.
If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.
