It’s Only An End To A Beginning

In every story book there is a beginning and there is an end. In every story there is usually more than one chapter and with every chapter one is ending and a new one begins; however, there are times when the next chapter will be continous from the previous chapter, but yet no two chapters are ever the same.  There are some chapters that you may experience the joys and sorrows, the heartaches and pains. It will sometimes make you happy, laugh or cry and at times you may become angry. No matter the roller coaster of emotions you may experience through out the story if it is something that has grabbed your attention normally by the end of the story you would say, “Now that was a good book”. The only difference in the books that we read and our life story is that it’s true and we are the author of what we write.  Have you ever been reading a book that the chapter (s) were so good  that you had to go back and read it again? Or maybe it made you feel some kinda way, maybe you lost interest and were unable to move past where you were. We can become this way in life that we become stuck at the beginning and we are unable to make it to the end.  We can tend to focus only on the bad things  with in our life story that we forgot about all the good things that have happened or we have experienced that should be able to give us lasting memories,but we allow our worst days to be what’s lasting in our thoughts. God has so much more in store for us if we we could only change our frame of mind.  As we continually grow and if we are wise we are able to continually build upon each one and turn our chapters around.  Everyone may not know the details of our story but they will be able to see it through our lives.  Though that chapter in your life has ended  new life is beginning and the story continues. As you began again flip the page “WHAT’S COMING IS BETTER”

Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover

A couple of days ago my front desk received a new credit card machine. I had the option to take the new one or to keep the old one and of course with the excitement of it being “new” I took that one. It was smaller than the other one, had new fancy gadgets and because it was “new” it probably was more efficient. The 1st day I noticed that in fact it was faster in speed but every time I made a transaction it went off-line and had to reconnect again before accepting the transaction. Then today I made an error in the dollar amount and needed to void the transaction which was a longer process in itself. On the older cc machine all I had to do was press void and enter the ref#. Well with the “new” one there was no void nor cancel button. In fact I had to call the 1-800# to get help with making a void transaction. What I thought would be an easier, quicker or more efficient process ended up adding a lot of unnecessary steps all because I judged a book by its cover thinking it would be better and actually it wasn’t. Now I’m stuck with it. It is just like us in life we up grade our cars, our homes, our churches, our friends, our spouse or our relationships all because we think the grass is greener on the other side when in actuality it’s not. Don’t get me wrong , some up grades are necessary. It’s all how we look and value what we have. Like a house that over time builds up equity we look at it as a debt instead of an investment. In a relationship we only scratch the surface of who they really are because it is too much work, but if we ever dug beneath the surface, underneath the dirt and hit the core of who they really are we would find we have a diamond in the rough, a jewel of great value. If we can ever learn to take care of our own grass flowers will grow eventually. #CLEANTHISHOUSE
