College/University and High School students are donning caps and gowns to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas and degrees. The walk is symbolic as it means going from one stage of life to another. For many, it means going on to the next level of education. Others will walk into searching for a career they have worked very hard for in the classroom.
This rite of passage is the cumulation of a lot of time spent preparing for the future. There is a struggle for many in the next phase but its all worth it when they find something they are called to do.
Class of 2018 may you find your way on the path before you. Congratulations to you all. Hang in there, you got this!
Maybe we need a diversion in the daily stress of life so we can dream again. Dreaming can be the catalyst for change.
To all mothers around the world I wish you a very happy Mother’s Day. You are indeed the driving force of our lives. Your leadership and service make our lives better. The things you do to make the world a better place is something to be appreciated and never taken for granted. Mothers come in various forms from biological, adoptive and we cannot forget pet moms. There are women who have no children of their own who have filled the role of mother in our lives. Some men are both mothers and fathers in one package. Grace and peace to you all and thank you we love you.
Welcome back to Monday, you came too soon. Have a great day my friends.
Serving others is a way of bringing peace into the world. When you help your brothers and sisters in humanity you bring them into a place where they can help others too and the cycle keeps on going. If everyone serves then the load is lighter and the work gets done faster. In scripture it says the generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.
Sharing what you have by giving of your time and talents is a great thing to do for others and the world. Doing for others means doing for yourself. There’s lots of good in being there for others and working to make the world a better place.
Today is Friday the 13th (cue ominous music). This is most superstitious of days. For some this is not a pleasant day but for others it isn’t so bad. It’s fun to look at all these things you aren’t supposed to do today but could taking it seriously also be a wise thing to do? No matter your own personal take on today I hope it’s a good one free from all the crazy, mysterious stuff.
