Help Heal the World

The world has become a place where there is so much hate and lack of unity.  People are turning on others out of pure hate. The question I have to ask is why all this hate? Why is it so difficult for all of us to coexist and get along. How can each of us play a part in healing our world instead of being a part of the problem?  We need to be more accepting of others and understand that everyone deserves the right to live and be happy.

Family is Important

Often the greatest joy we derive in life come from those moments spent with family. Yet so many miss the opportunity to create great moments because they are in pursuit of everything except investing time in family.

Acquiring great wealth is okay, so are the titled positions and accolades, but nothing beats having a family who loves and cherish you. That is the greatest wealth anyone can have. Many people neglect their families in pursuit of wealth and find out too late the chances they missed to create memories.

We must make time for family and cherish the moment spent together because at the end of our lives all the wealth we have acquired in this world is meaningless and when we go all we can take with us are the memories in our hearts. Let us no longer miss those opportunities to create great memories.

RELATIONSHIPS

Does his Family Dislike You

You are dating him not his family so their opinion of you shouldn’t matter right?  Not quite, sometimes his family’s reaction to you can have an influence on the relationship. When you are up against his relatives who don’t like you  and do not approve of your relationship it can make it more difficult for things to work out with him.

The man may love you but may not like being in a situation where he has to choose between you and his family. If you find yourself in this situation tread carefully. It is going to take a lot of work from the both of you to reach a common ground with his family and make the relationship work.

 

 

Inspirational Story

A Useless Life

A farmer got so old that he couldn’t work the fields anymore. So he would spend the day just sitting on the porch. His son, still working the farm, would look up from time to time and see his father sitting there. “He’s of no use any more,” the son thought to himself, “he doesn’t do anything!”

One day the son got so frustrated by this, that he built a wood coffin, dragged it over to the porch, and told his father to get in. Without saying anything, the father climbed inside. After closing the lid, the son dragged the coffin to the edge of the farm where there was a high cliff. As he approached the drop, he heard a light tapping on the lid from inside the coffin.

He opened it up. Still lying there peacefully, the father looked up at his son. “I know you are going to throw me over the cliff, but before you do, may I suggest something?”

“What is it?” replied the son.

“Throw me over the cliff, if you like,” said the father, “but save this good wood coffin… Your children might need to use it.”

The moral of this story is be careful how you treat others.  What you do to someone else the same thing might happen to you!

Inspirational Story

  As we celebrate Black History Month let us remember the words of this song by Bob Marley

Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
And another
Inferior
Is finally
And permanently
Discredited
And abandoned –
Everywhere is war –
Me say war.

That until there no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man’s skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes –
Me say war.

That until the basic human rights
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race –
Dis a war.

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
World citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained –
Now everywhere is war – war.

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in Angola,
In Mozambique,
South Africa
Sub-human bondage
Have been toppled,
Utterly destroyed –
Well, everywhere is war –
Me say war.

War in the east,
War in the west,
War up north,
War down south –
War – war –
Rumours of war.
And until that day,
The African continent
Will not know peace,
We Africans will fight – we find it necessary –
And we know we shall win
As we are confident
In the victory

Of good over evil –
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil –
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil –
