"The quality of a successful man is to 'flow' and not to 'freeze'."
Ralph Waldo Emerson --- Submitted by P. T. --- Maharashtra, India
What this suggests is, no matter what comes in your path, get on that time and continue your life with new strength. Both are the qualities of water, but which quality is of use to mankind? So never underestimate your potential to fight against obstacles and flow forever to help ourselves and others.

"So often folks have wondered why God has placed on earth the storms, the tears, the raging seas - destroyers of all worth. But if it weren't for angry skies, the torrents and dismay, how could we realize the worth of a sunny, cloudless day?"

"You have to go through the storm before you can reach the rainbow."
Written in 2005 by Kailee O. --- Michigan
Everyone has hardships. Everyone has those good things. No one has just one or the other. If you are going through a tough time, remember that you aren't alone and that you will reach your rainbow. Drag out that raincoat and let rumors slide off of you. Search for that umbrella, either a friend or a God, to help you to focus on the goal. There will always be a light at the end of a tunnel, and it won't always be the lights of an oncoming train.

"We wouldn't be able to shoot for the stars if you hadn't taught us to aim. We wouldn't be able to wrestle our dreams if you hadn't taught us to endure. I wouldn't be the father I am today if you hadn't been first the loving father you have always been. You say you never amounted to much, but you gave us everything."

A tribute to my father from my brother and me.

"Disappointments that we experience give substance and integrity to life. They give us that direction to yearn and seek self-fulfillment and worth. Whenever you fail, never stop in your pursuit for wellness and well-being. For as long as you have faith, you'll grow and be living and loving with more wisdom and spirituality. It was never a failure after all."

Let us thank the LORD for all the experiences, coupled with all the wisdom, that we do gain everyday. Each makes us grow as a person and nurtures our soul spiritually as well.

"Life is a treasure that continually bestows us with only the most appreciated vault of moments, from moment to moment. The incomparable value of these moments could never be gauged or realized until the essential criteria of the most readily available virtues, which are readily available at the disposal of each and every one of us, namely:- Practical Perspective / Prudent Acumen / Discerning Wisdom and Intelligence are competently utilized to enable perception of this priceless treasure. The treasured moments progress with an accentuated velocity, eluding those perspectives that do not realize the immense potential and distinctively valued moments that are readily available to each and every one of us. Let us endeavor to contribute our perspective towards appreciating, with gratitude, the immense treasure that Life has bestowed upon us, the bountiful treasure of, Priceless Moments, Incomparable beyond any Treasure."

"Life is your canvas. As a soul, you choose your starting colors - which are your body, your human personality, your country and family of birth. Then you come into your life, with your paintbrushes and colors ready to begin the artwork called your life. This is where most people get stuck. They hand their brushes and paints over to others and wonder later why the painting called their life, is not what they wanted it to be. Your life is not anyone else's fault or responsibility. Your life purpose is to hold your paintbrushes with joy and to paint a picture of life that is true to you - it can never be right or wrong, and you cannot fail at it."

"The word "FAITH" itself is an acronym of the sentence FIND AFFECTION & INSPIRATION THROUGH HIM! (Almighty God !)"
Copyright 2005 Priyanka Teredesai
Faith is something that connects you to almighty God and when you submit yourself completely to him, you can feel the affection and inspiration that you are seeking for from him. I was thinking once, what could be the definition of faith and I struck with the thought written above. May God bless us all, and we continue to help each other.

"If you look for the absence of God's presence, you will realize that there is no God - crime, cruelty, war, famine. But if you look for the presence of God, you will come to understand that God is everywhere - a child being born, the miracle of medicine, the bumblebee in flight. Train your eyes to see God and know that He is there. It all depends on what you are looking for."
