Forward Always

In Spanish there’s a saying: “Don’t go back, not even to gain momentum”. The past is called that for a reason, because it passed. We can learn from it, all while making sure not to go back. I recall a series where the protagonist would say “Forward always, backwards never”. Let’s focus on the wonderful things The Creator has authored into our future. 

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead… (Philippians 3:13 NLT)

Hello Summer ☀️

Summer is here!!!! 🌴☀️🐠

Love Paths

I thought our paths crossed
Instead I crossed to your path. 
Ironically I found myself lost
Having lost myself in our aftermath. 

A tough decision had to be made
I needed to break free from your love spell. 
Back to my path I went feeling betrayed
But I learned we will never work because our paths only run parallel.

Life is an Adventure 

Life is too short and this world is too big to be stagnant. It’s one thing to be alive and another to live. I choose the latter. The good news is that it’s never to late to choose to live, all you need is to be alive and make the most of each day. 

“Oh! Teach us to live well! Teach us to live wisely and well!” Psalm 90:12 (MSG)

In Big and Small Ways

I know a little man who is 4 (going on 5) years of age and is a fireball!!! One day his mom asked him how much he loved me to which he answered, “in big and small ways”. That got me thinking about 1 John 4:7. If God is love and we are His children, then that means we are loved and made capable of loving as well.

Love isn’t just what we see in movies or read in romance novels. It isn’t just roses and proposals. Love goes beyond that. Love is many things and can be expressed in both the simplest and most complicated ways. Love is a smile to brighten someone’s day, it is helping an elderly person, opening a door, giving back to those who invested in us and many other things. In the end, we children of God were created to love so let us make a habit of showing it in “big and small ways”.

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7 NIV)

La Vida Es Sencilla

He aprendido mucho, de los maestros más inesperados. Una de esas lecciones valiosas para mi, es que la vida realmente es…..sencilla.

A pesar de haber aprendido esta lección con los niños que me han rodeado a través de los años, fue un grupo de jóvenes con el Síndrome de Down de una serie que vi, los que reforzaron este concepto para mi.

Nosotros somos quienes nos complicamos. Si solo pudiéramos aprender de la inocencia de los niños y no de aquellas personas que se han dejado influenciar por una sociedad de cultura fría. Si solo pudiéramos encender esa llama de humanidad de nuevo. Si solo pudiéramos prestarnos más atención el uno al otro, en vez de darle esa atención a nuestros dispositivos electrónicos y juguetes. Cuan diferente podría ser la vida, si tan solo aprendiéramos los secretos de la sencillez.

Hoy, volvamos a nuestros principios. Pidamos perdón y demos perdón, riámonos, bailemos, vivamos y amémonos el uno al otro.

Eres Mi Eternidad
