Living … in a Nutshell

Stephanie ...don't doubt it.

LIVE, for without life, nothing matters. That’s why you take good care of your health.

LEARN, for that’s how you gain the knowledge and skills that enable you to exercise the divine within you by creating things. That’s why you feed and take care of your mind.

LOVE, for nothing created without love can be truly divine and life isn’t worth living without love and the divine. That’s why  you remain steadfast through pain and darkness in building relationships and exercising your heart.

DIE, for a sad as it is, it is what makes life precious (it will come, don’t rush for it)

Leave a LEGACY, for that’s the only way to conquer death, and that’s why you listen to your conscience and reach out to the world with LOVE

And DEATH may well be a break between one life well lived (loving, learning and leaving a legacy) and another life of PEACE and GLORY. Even if death is the end, a life of loving, learning and living a legacy is ENOUGH!


Walking the Valley of the Shadow of Death

You do so, not with joy in your heart, sometimes not even with courage in your own abilities.

You do it with FAITH in your heart, fueled by what you BELIEVE in, by those you LOVE and by a CONVICTION in your heart for WHAT YOU STAND FOR.

Oh, and that valley is not always dark, the thorns in you way are not always visible and the sun might well be shining bright on that path.

Watch your step, for your sight in this valley depends not on the eyeballs but on your faith and powers of perception.

Watch your thoughts, open your heart for your strength comes not from your flesh, but from somewhere deep in your spirit …in that place that is the temple of God within you
