Always tell someone how you feel about them. Mean what you say and say what you mean even when it's hard...because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye, but regrets last a lifetime.

NFL - Twitter: Ochocinco says he’s dependable … like birth control: Chad Ochocinco showed up at Bengals mandatory minicamp Tuesda... http://bit.ly/cPzOpr
"When things are at their darkest, pal, it's a brave man who can kick back and party."
Sometimes people come into your life
and you know right away that they were
meant to be there... to serve some
sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or
help figure out who you are or who you
want to become. You never know who
these people may be but when you look
eyes with them, you know that every
moment that you are with them, they
will affect your life in some profound
way. And sometimes things happen to
you at the time that may seem horrible,
painful and unfair, but in reflection
you realize that without overcoming
those obstacles you would have never
realized your potential, strength,
will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason!
Nothing happens by chance or by means
of good luck. Illness, injury, love,
lost moments of true greatness and sheer
stupidity all occur to test the limits
of your soul. Without these small
tests, life would be like a smoothly
paved, straight, flat road to nowhere,
safe and comfortable but dull and
utterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life.
The successes and downfalls that you
experience can create who you are, and
the bad experiences can be learned
from.... In fact, they are probably the
most poignant and important ones.
If someone hurts you, betrays you or
breaks your heart, forgive them because
they have helped you learn about trust
and the importance of being cautious
to whom you open your heart. If someone
loves you, love them back unconditionally
not only because they love you, but
also because they are teaching you to
love and open your heart and eyes to
little things.

MAKE EVERYDAY COUNT! Appreciate every moment and take from it everything
that you possibly can, for you may never
be able to experience it again. Talk to people who you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, even if it doesn't seem right because you are too young or too far, just follow your heart. Surround yourself with those who make you smile, laugh, and make you happy.

Break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you.

Create your own life then LET GO and LIVE IT!
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you learn to appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself...and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." - Marilyn Monroe
"Time sets the stage; fate writes the script; but only we may choose our character." - Liam Thomas Ryder
"Make your optimism come true." - author unknown
"Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left." Hubert Humphrey
Tough times don't last, tough people do!
Good Tuesday morning! Make it worth the Price you pay!
If little else, the brain is an educational toy. - Tom Robbins
Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business. - Tom Robbins
It only takes 20 years for a liberal to become a conservative without changing a single idea. - Robert Anton Wilson

Psalm 91 (New King James Version)

Psalm 91

Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a]
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

Dear Lord,
The guy who broke into my truck at the office (8930 Four Winds Blvd., at 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, June 10, 2010), the one who was observed by over 10 people punching my window to get to my radar detector. Will you please bless him? Yes, I am talking about the one in the black Cavalier… I didn’t see him. Lord, life happens and we conform, assimilate and before too long we accept a bunch of bologna, sorry, I said it right, however I was thinking wrong… OK. Sadly, I hope this guy was stressed by the economy, has been scoping the parking lot for a few weeks, whatever he thought, he said …here I go. And there he went.
Lord, please help this guy find work, win the lottery or catch a break in life! This guy had to punch my window three times, before he penetrated the interior! Three punches? What the heck is this guy thinking, he needs to find work, because stealing and him, yeah that isn’t happening. I won’t settle up with him, that is not my concern or my job.

Thank you!
