The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 to “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Notice the key in this verse: seek first the Kingdom. In other words, don’t seek the blessing, seek the One who blesses. Don’t be consumed by things. Don’t chase after money, fame, fortune or a bigger “this or that.” Instead, chase after God! If you will seek Him first, then all of His blessings will be added unto you. Not a few things. Not a half a dozen things. God is a God of abundance, and He says “ALL things.” In other words, when you keep Him first place, you won’t be able to contain all the good things that He will bring across your path! He’ll fill you to overflowing. He’ll give you things that money can’t buy. You can work 24/7, but you can’t buy health. You can’t buy strength. You can’t buy a good night’s rest. Seek first the Kingdom, and God will reward you!

That word “seek” is a strong word. One definition says “to require as a vital necessity.” That means we should consider spending time with God as vital to living a victorious life. That means no matter how we feel when we wake up, no matter how tired we are on Sunday morning, we are going to get up and honor God as if our lives depend on it!

Today, make sure things in life are in the right order—seek first God’s Kingdom. Seek His way of doing things. Honor Him at the start of your day and make it a part of your routine. As you do, you’ll see His reward on your life, and you’ll see all of His blessings added unto you!

True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island… to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.

Let’s face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce and hammers don’t ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn’t preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn’t a race at all). That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

Dad,
I always write about the guy I love so much.
I always think about him —- all day and all night.
I considered him as the main reason behind my smiles and my tears.
He may have torn my heart into pieces. I may have cried because of him for a couple of times already.
But, I couldn’t unloved him because after all, he’s the one who brings the sunshine to my every morning.
I love him Dad. I always do and it’s crazy how I’m willing to take risks just for him.

But Dad, I want you to know that you are the BEST man ever.
I may have not written about you.
I may have not think about you everyday.
But you…
You are always in my heart.
You are always part of me; of my life.
Since the day I was born up to the day God will finally take me away from Earth, I know you are there.
ALWAYS.

You are the man and only man who will never ever leave me.
You will never even think of leaving.
I may not have told you how much you mean to me but God knows how much I care and love you.
I know, how much you care and love me too.

Thank you.
Thank you for being the best man in my life.
You own a big part in my heart that no other man could ever take and I won’t let them do that because it is only meant for you.
You deserve to be in that very special place in my heart.
I love you Dad.

Most people think that true friendship is measured by the stimulating conversation or how much you have in common, when actually it is how comfortable you are when there is no conversation. If the silence feels relaxed then you have yourself a true friend.

True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island… to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.

You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.

I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.
