"Sometimes it seems we've strayed from our convictions that standards of right and wrong do exist and must be lived up to. God, the source of our knowledge, has been expelled from the classroom. He gives us His greatest blessing, life, and yet many would condone the taking of innocent life. We expect Him to protect us in crises, but turn away from Him too often in our day-to-day living. I wonder if He isn't waiting for us to wake up.”- President Ronald Reagan

"Knowledge of God can be fully given to man only in a Person, never in a doctrine. Faith is not the holding of correct doctrine, but personal fellowship with the living God." - William Temple

Reflections -- each day I recall the memories over time.
When life seemed simpler and people were kind.
Today I reflect on what all this means to me.
For tomorrow I won't be same as I used to be.

Because if I don't learn, then I will just repeat.
This is life and reinventing myself is what I do.
I'm a work in progress with God's point of view.

Hope is defined as a feeling of trust, to have a wish to get or do something or for something to happen or be true, especially if that something seems possible or likely.
By wanting or expecting something true to happen, we acquire hope.
Handling whatever adversity comes along to lead us into a tranquil state of being, we survive.
Preparing for changes and anticipating new beginnings to crunch out the bad habits, we dream. READ MORE ..
Watching our lives in cinema, taking notes for our final test, we press on. Questioning everything we believe, doubts magnify our soul.
God’s Word is true. His promise of love will never abandon us. His grace and mercy is enough.
Peace and contentment is only gained by one absolute truth, a truth that sets you free to ultimate spiritual victory. Accumulating all our wishes into one magic bottle so we can be free is not the key to happiness.
