“They are jealous of the favor and blessing on your life. Take it as a compliment.
They don’t talk about average people. They talk about exceptional people.
They don’t talk about people that aren’t doing anything.
They talk about people who are taking new ground;
people that are making a difference — people that stand out”
~ Joel Osteen,
Pastor of Lakewood Church, Motivational Speaker & Author
“My new passion is to get Internet education mandated in all schools.
We’ve got to start teaching our kids how to be safe in the 40,000 plus chat rooms
that are out there. Because they’re being had.
These sexual predators groom the kids. I know, I’ve arrested enough of them.”
“It was such a blessing to find myself thriving
in the middle of the pain. Unless you find a way to do that,
there’s always going to be this fake illusion that once you get there–
wherever “there” is for you–you’ll be happy.
But that’s just not life. If you can’t find happiness in the ugliness,
you’re not going to find it in beauty, either.”
“It is really rare to find someone you really, really love and that you want to spend your life with and all that stuff that goes along with being married. I am one of those lucky people. And I think she feels that way too. So, the romantic stuff is easy because you want them to be happy.”

“Impact should be at the core of your business. … Start from the beginning.
Very early in our business we made giving, and helping others a key part of our purpose.
If having an impact is a key part of your business from day one,
you will make an impact on someone’s life every day.”
“I’ve been blessed my whole career, my whole life,
with great friends, great teachers and great experiences;
I’ve done some wonderful things all along the line. But this is truly unbelievable!
So much of it is not just because your peers feel a certain way about you–and that is tremendous–
yet, also because you know how much it means to your family and to your friends,
because we’re all connected. And I honestly feel as though I’m representing all the gypsies. It’s all good stuff.”

“A good deed here, a good deed there, a good thought here, a good comment there, all added up to my career in one way or another.”

“Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you,
the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally
be able to move forward the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.”
“Be grateful for what you do have, and you will find it increases. I like to bless with love all that is in my life right now: my home, the heat, water, light, telephone, furniture, plumbing, appliances, clothing, transportation, jobs, the money I do have, friends, my ability to see and feel, and taste and touch, and walk and to enjoy this incredible planet.”
“Certain caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies; their greatest state.
When the caterpillar-existence ends,
the Creator’s planned, delightful butterfly-existence begins.
Similarly, humans can become their greatest self
by following our Creator’s complete plan.”
“I am so blessed. I’ve been way over-blessed.
At 64 years old, I look forward to going to bed
every night so I can wake up in the morning
and see what blessing is going to come my way
that day. Because you never, ever know what
God’s got in store for you.”
Hello, Everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed a heavenly summer season. Really helpful quote to remember, following:
“God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterwards, and He much prefers doing so.”
Good day, Everyone! Here’s a blessing quote for you, as follows:
“May the LORD bless you, and keep you;
May the LORD make His countenance shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
May the LORD turn His countenance to you and grant you peace.”
And it means: “The Lord is blessing you, and keeping you;
The Lord makes His countenance shine on you,
and He is gracious towards you/to you.
The Lord turns His countenance towards you
and bestows Shalom (wholeness/completeness)
for every aspect of your life.”
