Have a Magnificent Day!

fern and bamboo


One day the man decided to quit…

He quit his job, his relationship, his spirituality… “I wanted to quit my life.”  He went to the woods to have one last talk with God.   “God,” he said, “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”

His answer surprised him… “Look around,” God said, “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?”  “Yes,” he replied.  When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.  I gave them light.  I gave them water.  The fern quickly grew from the earth.  Its brilliant green covered the floor.  Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.  But I did not quit on the bamboo.

In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.  And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed.  “But I did not quit on the bamboo,” God said.

In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed.  But I would not quit.

In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed.  “I would not quit,” God said.

Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.  Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant.  But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.  It had spent the five years growing roots.  Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.

I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.  God said to man, “Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots.  I would not quit on the bamboo.  I will never quit on you.  Don’t compare yourself to others.”  God said, “The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern … Yet, they both make the forest beautiful.”

“Your time will come,” God said to him.  “You will rise high!”  “How high should I rise?” he asked.  “How high will the bamboo rise?”  God asked in return.  “As high as it can?” he questioned.  “Yes,” God said, “Give me glory by rising as high as you can.”

The man left the forest and brought this story.
(Author unknown – this wonderful story continues to travel around the world.)

A happy and meaningful life requires continuous presence and creativity.  It does not happen by chance.  It happens because of conscious choices, actions and grace.  Each day we are given new opportunities to choose and act.  In doing so, we create a unique journey.

Choose to discover your inner truth and cultivate God’s Glory within and let it shine for the world to behold.  Grow deep inner roots from your heart directly into God’s energy, love and magnificence.

In Memory and Honor of Madeline Brown.

Some of our greatest blessings are the angels God sends us to help on our path in life. 

These angels can take the form of special people and helpers who guide us with their unconditional love, kindness and support.
They can also be animals and pets.

True friends don’t want anything in return for their kindness and love.
They give unconditionally and with no strings attached.
They don’t kick you when you are down or take advantage of you.
They encourage, nurture and uplift.

Friendship is one of the highest forms of love.
Friends help each other because that is what friends do.
They want the best for each other.

Has someone special made a difference in your life?
Has someone encouraged, nurtured or inspired you?
Has someone loved and accepted you the way you are?

“A friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”

Thank God for good friends!

“If a man would move the world, he must first move himself.”

You can’t move the world without moving yourself first.  So don’t waste a lot of time and energy talking about doing it or trying to do it; just do it.

Transformation starts within.  If you want something to improve, it starts with you.  If you want better relationships, start being a better relater yourself.

Communication and transformation are an inside game.  It happens inside first.  If you are waiting for the other people in your life to change or improve, it is a waste of energy.

For things to change we must change – so start now and be an example.

Life is precious, make yours the best possible.
After all, your world is in your hands.

Have a Magnificent Day!

The wings become windows butterfly
Life is amazing.  It becomes even more amazing when we focus and tune into the details.

Give yourself the time to observe and discover the divine plan of God’s incredible universe.

Look at this beautiful butterfly.  The color and design is incredible.  As we notice the little details it becomes even more spectacular.

Can you see the patterns in the wings?
Are they actually open wings or see through?
Can you see the eyes?
How about the antennas?

Give yourself the opportunity to notice the finer details of your life.  It enhances your experience, your joy and appreciation of life’s wonders.  The magic is in the details.  Allow yourself to be amazed at the brilliance of life’s tapestry with so many fine threads, hues, colors and shapes.

Have you ever been invited for a meal and when you entered the dining room everything looked beautiful?  The table is set properly, the tablecloth laid nicely, the silverware is clean and properly placed.  The glasses are at perfect angles and clear.  How does it affect your expectation for the meal?

The food and your enjoyment of the meal is even better because of the environment and preparation.  When the food is cooked with love and care the results are sure to be delicious and extraordinary!  Are there any areas of your life that fit a similar pattern?  Why not make your life, relationships, health, business, etc., magnificent?

“The little things don’t mean a lot, they mean everything.”  Allow yourself to be whole, complete and brilliant.  Let yourself shine.  Give yourself the time to do it properly and fully.

The finer details or the little things include letting the people you love and care know how wonderful they are.  How powerful is it when you feel acknowledged, recognized or appreciated?  Are you taking the time to share this with others when they deserve it?  Are you giving it to yourself?

God’s beauty is all around us.  Breathe it in, immerse yourself with the wonder and beauty of life.  Be grateful and share it.  Acknowledge every moment, every joy and every win.

“A little acknowledgement goes a long way!”
