Life is Like a Multifaceted Prism
Life is like a multifaceted prism,
which gives different colored images,
when viewed from different angles.
Look how it appears to different people:
a. Life is a struggle, face it.
b. Life is a brief intermission, between birth and death, enjoy it.
c. Life is a lesson, learn it.
d. Life is not a joke, take it seriously.
e. Life is work, work is life.
f. Life is a dream, to be realized.
g. Life is to be lived, enjoy it.
h. Life, without a wife, is no life.
i. Life is not a bed of roses.
j. Life is an ocean, fathom it.
k. Life is an opportunity, don’t miss it.
l. Life without love is desolate.
m. Life is a goldmine, exploit it.
n. Life is what you make it.
o. Life lies in optimism. Be a positive thinker.
p. Life is like a game of snakes and ladders; one faces many pitfalls before one reaches the top.
q. Life will be a pleasure, if you love your work.
r. Life without goals, is groping in darkness.
s. Life without trust is a life in turmoil.
t. Life is a journey; make it as pleasant as possible.
u. Life doesn’t mean bread alone.
v. Life is meaningful, only if there is a mission.
w. Life is enriched by good friendship.
x. Life doesn’t mean years alone: “IT IS THE LIFE IN THOSE YEARS”
y. Life is useful, if you contribute something that will outlive it.
z. Life lies in diversity, not in monotony.

In the seeing eye …
We stand in awe by the colorful splendor of God’s rainbows.
We are spellbound and breathless with the beauty of God’s sunsets
♥ ♥ ♥
In the hearing ear …
We resonate with the majestic crashing waves against the shore.
We lull and soothe to the sweet refrains of the melodious harp
♥ ♥ ♥
With the tasting mouth …
We are satisfied with palatable food; given as a gift from God above.
We are understood from the words put forth in honesty and kindness.
♥ ♥ ♥
In the feeling of the hand …
We feel the textures of the earth and the clear power of water.
We touch with the give and take from the expressions of love.
♥ ♥ ♥
From the smelling of the nose …
We gravitate towards the aroma of succulent food and juicy fruits.
We are intoxicated with the perfumed notes of flowers in a bottle.
♥ ♥ ♥
Do not take these for granted, for our five vital senses are deemed the utmost precious gifts,
for one cannot do without the other.
It should be counted and prized the highest or else if one is handicapped;
it’s deemed as one momentous casualty.

THE PARADOXICAL COMMANDMENTS
by Dr. Kent M. Keith
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down
by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
If you find happiness and serenity they may be jealous;
Be Happy anyway.
You see in the end the final analysis, its between YOU and GOD;
It was never between YOU and THEM Anyway!
Three things in life that, once gone, never come back –
Three things in life that can destroy a person –
Three things in life that you should never lose-
Three things in life that are most valuable –
2. Family & Friends
Three things in life that are never certain –
Three things that make a person –
3. Hard work
Three things that are Truly Constant

Our GOD and FATHER JEHOVAH
His SON Our Messiah JESUS CHRIST
GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT
Time … past and still ticking … I’ve yet to find
achievement acted upon desires of my own design
Golden time .. seconds minutes hours of everyday
fly by like gold dust scattered down silent highway
Yet still … I spin and spin on the wheel of life
soldier on would I … no matter what kind of strife
If my wishes for a little fortune magically appear
like stars in the night … spirit would sparkle happier
It’s only material wishes that would unburden my soul
no such wish for riches but to repay a debt of long ago
All of my life … I’ve walk the path of good intentions
sad to say … oft times it’s met with accusing questions
And that’s what hurts, deep deep down inside my heart
emptiness felt, woefulness of red arteries flow like art
Even though winds of change veered another course
I’m left beleaguered like a forlorn rider with no horse
Right directions decided but wrong timing to pursue
chains of duties and commitments kept me subdue
Dreams … I have like sand on the shores
dedicated perseverance … success blend for encores
Loves … one true love and a forbidden soul mate
torn between two … flummoxed … leaving it to fate
My life’s pathetic repertoire of challenging cycles and phases
fade dark days for hope and faith soars me to higher places
