"A Happy Heart ..."

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.”   – Prov 15:13 (NIV)

My friend thinks he is smart. He told me an onion is the only food that makes you cry, so I threw a coconut at his face.

On Thanksgiving day, a little boy overhears his mom and dad fighting. He hears his mom call his dad a bastard and hears his dad call his mom a bitch. He asks, "Mommy, what does bastard mean?" She answers, "Um, it means boy." Then he asks, "Daddy, what does bitch mean?" He says, "Uh, it means girl." Later that day, the boy sees his father in the bathroom shaving; the dad accidentally cuts himself and says, "Sh*t." The son asks, "What does that mean?" The dad says, "It means shaving cream." Then he sees his mom in the kitchen carving the turkey; she accidentally cuts herself and says, "F*ck." The son asks her what that word means and she says, "It means carving." That evening, the family's guests arrive for Thanksgiving dinner. The son opens the door to welcome them and says, "Welcome bitches and bastards! My dad is in the bathroom rubbing sh*t on his face and my mom is in the kitchen f*cking the turkey." 

A man walks out on his front porch one day and sees a gorilla in the tree on his front lawn. He calls animal control and about an hour later a man shows up with a ladder, a pit bull, and a shotgun. The animal control employee tells the man, "I'm here to get the gorilla out of your tree. I'm going to use this ladder to climb up the tree and shake the branch the gorilla is on to knock him to the ground. The pit bull is trained to go after anything that falls from the tree and bites their balls which calms the animal down so I can put him in the truck." The man says "Okay, I see what the ladder and the pit bull are for but what is the shotgun for?" The animal control employee says, "Oh, that's for you. In case I fall out of the tree instead of the gorilla, shoot the dog."

Understanding the Concept of Work

GOD originally intended that our first parents WORK, not for daily sustenance that they may live but to be co-creators with HIM ... to create and beautify the earth and enjoy life. That explains why man, compared to animals, can design and build. They did not have to worry about food or clothing or shelter because GOD would provide all that they needed to live. HIS only condition was: that they obey HIS commands and walk HIS way.

Enter the author of lies, the Devil who deceived Eve, who, in turn, (enticed, tempted, seduced, persuaded [pick the appropriate word]) Adam who didn't know better than lower his defenses, lose control of his faculties and give in. He turned his back to GOD and willfully disobeyed HIM all for a bite of the ... you know what.

As a consequence of this transgression (Law of Cause and Effect), the undeserved, abundant support from GOD to sustain life was withheld and for man to toil all day to put food on the table. And it has been so through the ages down to our time.

But ... unfortunate and sad that one act of our first parents might have been for humanity, GOD did not totally deprive man of HIS blessings of wealth, vibrant health and happy, fulfilled life if he turns from his rebellion, repents of his crooked ways and choose to follow GOD. We get a glimpse of this in the lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, David and Solomon who worked not for sustenance but to help others in accomplishment of GOD's purpose in creating man which is to do GOOD WORKS.

What this means is that meaningful success doesn't come about by our own efforts at work though by the work of our hands, we may enjoy comfort and acquire great wealth and material possessions. Meaningful success that equates with happy, healthy, wealthy, successful and fulfilled lives is a blessing from GOD.

And ... it all begins in the mind.

Don't Wait Till It's Too Late

One of the keys to successful relationship is fluid, highly interactive communication. Love may be present but if it is not conveyed properly, may not only be misunderstood, but could elicit animosity, if not outright hate. Take the case of a father, for example, who, no doubt, loves his wife and kids but is overbearing towards them and intolerant of mistakes, even little ones. Or the child who could be likened to a sponge who soaks up everything thrown at him, and doesn't speak his mind, until he can't absorb any more and explodes to violence.

Life is too short we need to make the most of the little time we have with our family, our friends and the people around us. Let's take time, everyday, to appreciate the beauty around us, to talk and to listen, to accentuate the positive and throw away the things that destroy. Let's build bridges and break down walls. Let's do it while we still have time. Tomorrow may be too late.

I want to tell you more but I thought of just let Paul Carrack, a terrific talent, complete the thought of this post with his heart-touching version of the hit song, The Living Years. You can sing along with him. I have included the lyrics below. Happy singing.

Howdy fellas. How are you doing? 

Time ... time ....

So many things to do with so little time to do them. 

Too often we hear people say: "manage your time." 

No ... you cannot manage time. You can only manage yourself -- to make the most of your time. What do you think?

2011 ... Whazzupp?

Time sure does pass by fast. It seemed only yesterday when I last updated my blog (I just realized, it's been months since. I'd been too busy ... so many things to do with so little time to do them), now it's 2011.
