Poetry by Other Authors

My God Strengthens Me I can do all things through God, who strengthens me.

The road to success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion.
There are speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies,
And a caution light called Family.
You will also have flats, often called jobs.
But if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance,
insurance called Faith, and a driver called God,
You will be sure to make it, to a place that’s called Success.Author Unknown

VOICE OF REASON

 

  • Don’t spend major time with minor people.
  • If there are people in your life who continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, are too judgmental, have different values and don’t have your back during difficult times…they are not friends.
  • To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life, as you grow your friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself with people who reflect your values, goals, interests and lifestyle.
  • When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to God from whom all blessings flow, and to my family and friends who enrich my life.
  • Over the years, my phone book has changed because I changed for the better. At first you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life who make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure.
  • Remember what your elders used to say, “Birds of a feather flock together.” If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around chickens: Chickens Don’t Fly!
  • I love and thank my God for all done in my life, Therefore, I’m passing this on.
  • Yes, I love God, my source of existence and Savior. That keeps me functioning each and everyday.
  • Without God, I am nothing but with God, I can do all things.

On Friendship
•    Don’t spend major time with minor people.
•    If there are people in your life that:
      – continually disappoint you,
      – break promises,
      – stomp on your dreams,
      – are too judgmental,
      – have different values and
      – don’t have your back during difficult times…
      They are not friends!
•  To have a friend, be a friend.
•  Sometimes in life, as you grow, your friends will either grow or go.
•  Surround yourself with people who reflect your values, goals, interests and lifestyle.
•  When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to:
    – God from whom all blessings flow, and
    – my family and friends, who enrich my life.
Over the years my phone book has changed because I’ve changed for the better.  At first you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while, new people show up in your life that make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure.
Remember what your elders used to say, “birds of a feather flock together.”
 “If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around chickens:  Chickens don’t Fly!”
I love and thank the Lord for all that he’s done in my life.  The Lord is the source of my existence, and my savior.  The Lord keeps me functioning each and every day.  Without God, I am nothing, but with God, I can do all things.    Phil 4:13
