Choose Joy, Choose Love ..

I've made mistakes in my past, mistakes that took me years to get over the consequences.
But thanks to sound/good decisions, wonderful people in my life, and above all God's guidance...I lived in self pity for a long time until i realized that i and only i is in a position to love EVERYTHING about my life again and that nobody can love me if i don't first love yourself.
That decision/realization helped me to conquer my depression so to speak and I think that it is all that matters and my joy has known no bounds.

As the days,weeks,months,and even years goes by, things happen and situations arises that are not pleasing like they sometimes will, always try to remember these words from 1cor 16:14
It's so easy to judge others, so effortless to hate others but the hard work is putting those feelings aside and remembering these words..."do everything in love".
It's been one of my favorite verses since i came across it and it's been my secret in living a joyful life.

No room for HATE, only room for LOVE.
Have a fab day you all.

  8. Romans 13:8 says Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

    Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

  11. Sometimes Gloria, it feels like you're telling my story, I guess alot of us have had the same struggle and experiences. We live and we learn, we grow and we conquer because what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I haven't written an 'encouraging' piece in a while, I should....

  12. Live is fun when you are happy

  13. Love leads. No woman wants to be with an average man and no man is willing to live eternally with a materialistic lady.
