$20 Bill

Friday, September 19th, 2008

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

Hands started going up.

He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up.

He then asked, “Who still wants it?”

Still the hands were up in the air.

“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.

He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. “Now who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air.

“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.

We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special – Don’t ever forget it!

LEMONS and SUGAR

Monday, September 15th, 2008

This should probably be taped to your bathroom mirror
where one could read it every day.
You may not realize it, but it’s 100% true.

1. There are at least two people in this world
that you would die for.

2. At least 15 people in this world
love you in some way.

3.. The only reason anyone would ever hate you
is because they want to be just like you.

4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone,
even if they don’t like you.

5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you
before they go to sleep.

6. You mean the world to some one.

7. You are special and unique.

8. Someone that you do n’t even know exists loves you.

9. When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.

10. When you think the world has turned its back on you
take another look.

11. Always remember the compliments you received.
Forget about the rude remarks.
So………
If you are a loving friend,
send this to everyone,
including the one that sent it to you.
If you get it back, then they really do love you.

And always remember….
when life hands you Lemons,
ask for Sugar and call me over!

Good friends are like stars.
You don’t always see them,
But you know they are always there.

‘Whenever God Closes One Door He Always Opens Another, Even Though
Sometimes It’s Hell in the Hallway’

I would rather have one rose and a kind word
from a friend while I’m here
than a whole truckload when I’m gone.

Forward to all your friends.
And don’t tell me you’re too busy for this..
Don’t you know the phrase
‘stop and smell the flowers’?
See how many ‘bouquets’ you
end up with.

Happiness keeps You Sweet,
Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows k eep You Human,
Life keeps You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
But Only
God keeps You Going

Cracked Pots

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole, which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.

After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.

The old woman smiled, “Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side?

That’s because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.”

“For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.”

Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.”

Each of us has our own unique flaw…But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

You’ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

To all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers, on your side of the path.

Take the time to send this message to all your friends Who have a cracked side…

And God knows how many we are!!!

The first day of school

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know.

I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being. She said, ‘Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?’

I laughed and enthusiastically responded, ‘Of course you may!’ and she gave me a giant squeeze. ‘Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?’ I asked. She jokingly replied, ‘I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids…’ ‘No seriously,’ I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age. ‘I always dreamed of having a college education and now I’m getting one!’ she told me.

After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake. We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this ‘time machine’ as she shared her wisdom and experience with me. Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up. At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet.

I’ll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, ‘I’m sorry I’m so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I’ll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know.’

As we laughed she cleared her throat and began, ‘We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You’ve got to have a dream.

When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don’t even know it! There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don’t do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.

Anybody can grow older. That doesn’t take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no regrets. The elderly usually don’t have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets.’ She concluded her speech by courageously singing ‘The Rose.’ She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives.

At the year’ s end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep. Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it’ s never too late to be all you can possibly be. When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of advice to your friends and family, they’ll really enjoy it! These words have been passed along in loving memory of ROSE. REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL.

We make a Living by what we get, We make a Life by what we give. God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

聖母誕辰奉獻瞻禮誦

Monday, September 8th, 2008

﹝前教宗若望保祿二世親撰﹞

真福童貞瑪利亞,妳的誕生使我們充滿歡樂。在妳的誕辰,我們看到救恩曙光的輝耀,因為妳帶了義德的太陽—主基督。妳是世界救主的母親,妳是教會之母,求妳給予我們援手,俾我們能在生活中找到基督。至潔無瑕的童貞,求妳指引我們的步履,遠離罪惡與死亡的陰影,踏上正道,以獲得妳聖子的光榮,以獲得妳聖子的真光,在聖神內與聖父修和,並藉著教會的服務不斷與天主修和。我們現在聯同普世信友,懇切向妳祈求:吁!天主之母,求賜我完全屬於妳:或生或死、在痛苦、恐懼和困難中、在苦難和絕望中,我們也能完全屬於妳。吁!童貞瑪利亞,天主之母,求妳恩賜,俾我們能完全屬於妳,從今世直到永遠,亞孟。

至潔之母,為我等祈。

聖母誕辰 9月8日 The Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Monday, September 8th, 2008

聖教會對聖人通常是「慶死不慶生」。只有兩位聖人我們慶祝他們的誕生,第一是聖母誕辰,第二是洗者若翰瞻禮。
 聖洗者若翰在母胎第六個月才獲原罪的赦免。至於聖母,在始胎時已無染原罪,所以在她誕生時,已成為受造物中最純潔且最神聖的。我們慶祝聖母的各項瞻禮,【一】是為了讚美天主賞賜各種殊恩異寵給聖母瑪利亞;【二】是為了讚美天主籍著聖母之手頒賜給人類的各項恩典;【三】是為了祈求大能的聖母保佑我們神形平安。
 聖母聖誕瞻禮開始於東方,第八世紀以後普及於整個教會。聖母於創造天地之先,已被天主預選為為祂降生的母親,在她誕生的日期,我們更該如何喜樂呢!她的誕生是耶穌來臨的先聲。耶穌是人類和平的根源,所以在聖母誕生的慶典,我們當求天主賞賜我們享受和平的恩典。
聖母是基督救世工程最親密的合作者,她也是為基督作前驅,準備基督的來臨,故她的誕辰也給世界帶來救恩的曙光和希望。教會在第五世紀中葉已有此敬禮。
請看,有一位貞女將要生子;祂要把自己的子民,從他們罪惡中拯救出來。﹝依7:14;瑪1:21﹞

童貞聖母瑪利亞,妳是有福的,也當得起一切讚頌,
因為正義的太陽、我們的主基督由妳而出生。
