Prayer Chain



I was asked to pick 12 women (who have touched my life) and whom I think would want to participate. I think that if this group of women were ever to be in a room together, there is nothing that would be impossible. I hope I chose the right twelve. Please send this back to me (You'll see why).


REMEMBER to pray for one thing before you read the prayer. That's all you have to do.. There is nothing attached. Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. Did you make a prayer yet?


May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in
yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has
been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and everyone of us.

Now, send this to 12 women within the next 5 minutes. And remember to send this back.

Life is Too Short...


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

So love the people who treat you right.



Love the ones who don't just because you can.

Believe everything happens for a reason.

If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.

If it changes your life, let it.

Kiss slowly.

Forgive quickly.

God never said life would be easy.

He just promised it would be worth it.

One Flaw In Women

Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you..

The heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.

Women have vital things to say
and everything to give.

HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,
IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.


Please pass this along to all your women friends and relatives to remind them just
how amazing they are.

Great Advice

An Angel says,
'Never borrow from the future.
If you worry about what may happen tomorrow
and it doesn't happen,
you have worried in vain.
Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.'



1. Pray
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4.. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.

10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety .. If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut).. This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.

16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
17. Get enough rest.
18. Eat right.
19 Get organized so everything has its place.

20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
22. Every day, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.

25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus .'
27. Laugh.
28.. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all..

30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
32. Sit on your ego.
33 Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35.. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
36 Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.


'If God is for us, who can be against us?'

(Romans 8:31)

Maybe..

Maybe... we were supposed

to meet the wrong people before meeting the right one so that, when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.


Maybe... when the door of
happiness closes, another opens; but, often times, we look so long at the closed door that we don't even see the new one which has been opened for us.

Maybe... it is true
that we don't know what we have until we lose it, but it is also tru that we don't know what we have been missing until it arrives.

Maybe... the happiest
of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

Maybe... the brightest
future will always be based on a forgotten past; after all, you can't go on successfully in life until you let go of your past mistakes, failures and heartaches.

Maybe... you should
dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you dream of, and want to do.

Maybe ... there are
moments in life when you miss someone -- a parent, a spouse, a friend, a child -- so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real, so that once they are around you appreciate them more.

Maybe... the best kind
of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

Maybe... you should
always try to put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that something could hurt you, it probably will hurt the other person, too.

Maybe... you should do
something nice for someone every single day, even if it is simply to leave them alone.

Maybe... giving
someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart; but, if it doesn't, be content that it grew in yours.

Maybe... happiness waits
for all those who cry, all those who hurt, all those who have searched, and all those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of all the people who have touched their lives.

Maybe... you shouldn't
go for looks; they can deceive; don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.

Maybe... you should hope
for enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong,enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy

Maybe... you should try to live your life to the
fullest because when you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling but when you die, you can be the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Maybe... God woke you up
this morning for your life's purpose today (and everyday) - to give Him praise in all you do, to bless someone else, and to lift up Jesus so that He may draw someone to Himself.

Maybe... you could
send/give this message to those people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life, to those who can and do make you smile when you really need it, to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down, and to all those whom you want to know that you appreciate them and their friendship. And maybe even to a perceived enemy!

And if you don't, don't worry; nothing bad will happen to you. You will
just miss out on the opportunity to perhaps bless and brighten someone's day.

Now you're on the

clock!!!!

You are in Your Car Driving Home...

You are in your car driving home. Thoughts wander to the game you want to see or meal you want to eat, when suddenly a sound unlike any you've ever heard fills the air. The sound is high above you. A trumpet? A choir? A choir of trumpets? You don't know, but you want to know..

So you pull over, get out of your car, and look up. As you do, you see you aren't the only curious one. The roadside has become a parking lot. Car doors are open, and people are staring at the sky. Shoppers are racing out of the grocery store.The Little League baseball game across the street has come to a halt. Players and parents are searching the clouds And what they see, and what you
see, has never before been seen.

As if the sky were a curtain, the drapes of the atmosphere part. A brilliant
light spills onto the earth. There are no shadows. None.

From every hue ever seen and a million more never seen. Riding on the flow
is an endless fleet of angels. They pass through the curtains one myriad at
a time, until they occupy every square inch of the sky.

North. South. East. West.

Thousands of silvery wings rise and fall in unison, and over the sound of
the trumpets, you can hear the cherubim and seraphim chanting, Holy, holy,
holy.. The final flank of angels is followed by twenty-four silver-bearded
elders and a multitude of souls who join the angels in worship.

Suddenly, the heavens are quiet. All is quiet. The angels turn, you turn,
the entire world turns and there He is.. Jesus.

Through waves of light you see the silhouetted figure of Christ the King. He
is atop a great stallion, and the stallion is atop a billowing cloud. He
opens his mouth, and you are surrounded by his declaration:

I am the Alpha and the Omega.

The angels bow their heads.. The elders remove their crowns.. And before you
is a Figure so consuming that you know, instantly you know: Nothing else
matters... Forget stock markets and school reports. Sales meetings and
football games. Nothing is newsworthy.. All that mattered, matters no more..
For Christ has come.

Please let me know the exact time you read this. It is mystical--honest.

This morning when the Lord opened a window to Heaven, he saw me, and he
asked: My child, what is your greatest wish for today?

I responded: 'Lord please; take care of my family, my friends, the person
who is reading this message, their family and their special friends. They
deserve it and I love them very much'.

The love of God is like the ocean, you can see its beginnings but not its
end.

This message works on the day you receive it.
