Never Give Up

control your mind“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”
― Marilyn Monroe


imagine-copyMorning Inspiration….Waking up every morning thanking GOD for his Grace and Mercy!!

From the words of Iamrennyren…Imagine you having that one person you can count on in every situation, never judging you for your past mistakes or short comings. Never talking down on you or telling you what you should or should not do. That one person that loves you no matter what. The one person you can call on anytime of the day and they answer!!! YOU DO!!! He is your Father, your Friend, your Comforter, your Therapist. He is my/your Lord and Savior and I thank him for never turning his back on me/us.

Know that he is all I/we need then..Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong and may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is-Ephesians 3:17-18
