Love in fellowship.
In our language there is no word to say inferior or superiority or equality because we are equal; it’s a known fact. For native people who speak their language, English can be very confusing.
Many times you cannot express in English the true meaning of Indian words. When we hear something in English we sometimes react or our spirit reacts.
Sometimes we need to use English words out of order to express our true meanings. We need to be patient and pray. Living in two worlds can be difficult.
Life is painful sometimes.
The pain of life is where the lessons are learned. –Elders | More…
Accept & Celebrate
I’ve learned that accepting faults and choosing to celebrate differences creates healthy, growing, and lasting relationships.
My Good Bad & Ugly
I’ve learned to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of my life and lay them at the feet of God.
I’ve learned to stop worrying about what I have to lose, and to start focusing on what I have to gain.
Keeping My Own
I’ve learned not to put the key to my happiness in someone else’s pocket- I keep it in my own.
I’ve learned to trust God. God is the only One who will be able to give me a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn’t a deal-breaker.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
I’ve learned not to let the little things get to me.
I’ve learned to be kinder than necessary because everyone I meet is fighting some kind of battle.
The Point is…
I’ve learned that life without God is like an unsharpened pencil- it has no point.
I’ve learned to forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes me smile.
Listen to God
I’ve learned to listen to God. God has a bigger plan for me than I have for myself.
Cheap is Cheap
I’ve learned good things don’t come cheap and cheap things don’t last.
I’ve learned life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.
I’ve learned it doesn’t do me good to hold grudges, and I’m better off when I accept the apology I never got.
