A Source of Strength

“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD, I WILL BE JOYFUL IN GOD MY SAVIOR. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights!” Habakkuk 3:17-19

My friend’s optimism and success growing daily affirmations:

A friend of mine shared the daily “affirmations” he is
using to help himself stay positive and successful in his business each day:

“I am one with the limitless intelligence, energy and potential of the universe.

Every thought that I have, every word that I utter and every choice that I make ripples forth through my life, the lives of my loved ones, and the unfolding universe.

Knowing that I have the power to create what I believe,I now affirm my beliefs, releasing them confidently to the universe:

I enjoy affirming my intentions and my gratitude every day.

I enjoy the stillness and peace that come from meditating daily to open a path to greater presence in my life.

I remain aware of the vast empty space in which all objects temporarily rest, the complete silence onto which all sounds are briefly projected,the calm presence surrounding every fleeting thought,and the universal life force that energizes my body.

I accept, enjoy or enthusiastically embrace each present moment, drawing energy from the universe, and joyfully participating in my life’s experiences.

I accept the bounty of the universe gratefully and enjoy every gift that flows to me, sharing freely my gifts to benefit others and to create room for all of the blessings that continue to flow into my life.

I am joyful, fearless, full of love and can never feel sorry for myself with all of the good fortune I am blessed with.

I am grateful for all of the beauty in the world that is here for me to enjoy and for my body and its senses that allow me to experience it.

I care for my body, give it my conscious attention and sleep long enough to allow it to miraculously rejuvenate itself every night.

I feel my connection to all persons, creatures and objects in the universe, as the same energy that gives me life, runs through them.

I accept perceived mistakes and shortcomings in myself and others, knowing that the potential for both good and bad is in all of us.

I genuinely care about others but do not take what they say or do personally.”

Always cherish and foster Optimism.


“Love lights more fires than hate extinguishes.”

Re-run blog! Baby’s first Christmas, again.

…recently came across this picture again, but this time found the obvious hope, joy, and optimism in my son’s eyes to be overwhelming. I am a very lucky man. Thank God.
