"My father is in heaven now, but one week before he died I asked him this question. "What is the best thing I can do for my two children?" He answered me immediately; "Always love and respect their mother". I will never forget those six words, and I will never forget you Dad."

I guess that the first time that I wrote it was in the eulogy for my father's home going service in 1989. My father, Rev. S. Winston C. Crosse, and I are both Methodist clergymen.

"We should always remember that everything in life happens for a reason; it is fate, but we should also remember that fate gets twisted sometimes, but if we look deep inside ourselves we can find the strength to move on always; after every disappointment, every heartbreak, every trial of life. We can make it if we try."

"Life's field isn't arranged by vertical standards - it's horizontal by design and so is Heavenly Father's love and Kingdom - none should seek a vertical leap - but all should remember we are all his children each with different missions and that we'd be best about them - thus no comparisons except with what we should be doing and what we are doing."

"You know how much it sucks when you feel all alone and have no strength to go on. Or sometimes you think you just won't ever go on. I have learned that in our weakness, He is strong. So many times we think, "Thanks God for leaving me when I'm at my lowest", but we forget that he's there ready and waiting for us to trust in Him so that He can show us that when we can't, He can.

Sometimes we have to go all the way to the bottom to see that we can't do everything. So next time you feel low and weak, remember that it's time for you to lay it all down at His feet and just let Him be your perfect strength."

"When these stars die, after the ageless darkness, more stars will come. Under them our future selves will be. When their stars die, yet more stars will come. This is unending, for the darkness itself is eternal, and while there is darkness, there will always be the possibility of stars."

"The only safe place is the present moment."
Copyright © 2003 Simon Heighwaya
Fear can only be of the past and future. You can only be afraid of something that has already happened or is going to happen. It is impossible to actually live in either past or future, as both are in the mind; memory and imagination. So fear cannot exist here and now!
