There are prisoners in jail
There are poor needing food
There are lonely needing friends
There are opportunities to better the lives of others
around every corner
Will you keep your eyes open to see them,
your ears to see them,
your hands to reach them, your feet
The opportunities are there
Will you accept their invitation?
If you’ve made it this far,
You’ve made it this far
It’s not easy
I’m sure there were times
Maybe you wanted out
to give up to give in to say it’s not worth it
I’m better off gone
but you’re not gone, you’re here
Thank God for you!
You are wonderful!
There’s no time like the present
Start making a difference
You are the pebble in the pond the endless ripple
Go out and touch the lives of many
who will benefit from your light
Expel the darkness
It’s a new day
Live it to the full
Do what inspires you
Do what entertains you
Do what completes you
Do what connects you
Do what enlightens you
Do what blesses others
Do what blesses God
Do what blesses yourself
There are so many opportunities
in the waiting
Do them, starting today
The world will never be ready
Your relations will never be ready
You will never be ready
Until the moment you decide to make it happen,
to get your hands dirty
and say here I am
And that’s only just the beginning,
that’s just the start
of something good.
Let the journey begin!
My wife is a genius.
Victoria’s Secret used to send us ads with every now and again, usually with a “Free Panty” coupon attach. Of course, the idea is, if you come in and cash it in, you would end up buying something while you were there, whether out of impulse or guilt.
But my wife will not be fooled. She walks in, gets her swag, and leaves with a pink pouch of victory in tow.
Life will always present you with opportunities. The temptation is always to get greedy with them or shy away from them, but there is a third alternative: the quiet strength that empowers you to walk up, claim your destiny, and gracefully walk away.
The choice is yours. The coupon is ready.
