“Nobody has things just as he would like them. The thing to do is to make success with what material [you] have.  It is a sheer waste of time and soulpower to imagine what [you] would do if things were different. They are not different.” – Dr. Frank Crane

 

Heaven is Where You Create It

Standard

seek and you will findGreetings all! Today’s Soul Food is a great reminder that we all have the power and ability to create heaven in our lives, the lives of others and here on earth. Use your time wisely–it’s the one thing you will never get back! After reading this, think about what heaven is to you and CREATE IT. In this moment, I can say that for me, heaven is the existence of possibilities.

Meditate on this and enjoy link below 😉
“…No one knows the hour, nor do they know the day,
but the kingdom is near, don’t let anything lead you astray.
as long as God is with me, everything will be okay.
so right about then,we decided to pray….

your time
is a terrible thing to waste!!!
for there’s not one of these possessions that you can bring to space (yeah, it doesn’t matter)
it’s a challenge, but the chance of seeing, is quite a dream to chase (yes it is)
I hope
I remind God of Him when He sees my face ….

all mighty love,
watching over me….
a smile……..brilliant…..
all over …..constantly…..
warm …..comforting…..
perfect…like …no..thing
no hate..no confusion…no strain
simply peace…. simply
simply…simply…simply

No fear! Heaven is to me
no fear of destruction
understanding who He is
his name is Christ!!
heaven, heaven is to me
wisdom, understanding, knowledge

streets of gold and pearly gates
halos wings all dressed in white
angels sing and cymbals glare
no ones rich, no one’s poor
people dreaming they live free
making love while they in love
wonderful dream wake me when you’re home

Heaven. Heaven is being Pops
heaven is spending the day with your grandchildren
listening to their voices when they laugh and play
and then at the end of the day, we hug,  we kiss and slowly they walk away
and then suddenly they turn and rush back to me and hug me ’round the knees
yeah, that’s heaven to me…”

Get With The Times

Standard

Today’s Soul Food is timeless.
The Times They Are A Changin’

-Bob Dylan

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’
