LOVE IS A CONQUEROR OF EVERYTHING

LOVE IS A CONQUEROR OF EVERYTHING


LOVE IS A CONQUEROR OF EVERYTHING
One loving couple walking around the park,
they chat happily,
holding hands and waving them as they walk,
they share their thoughts happily from their smiling faces.

One glance you can see vividly that they are in deep love.
The environment at that time was so peaceful that you can only hear their laughing voice,
so loud and sweet,
where both of them cannot hear anything,
as if they are the only ones existing in their small world.
They are so indulge in their conversations that
they can't hear and see anything other than themselves and their voices.
Their relationship is so intimate that even the breeze is jealous.

Out of sudden the breeze decided to attack them,
It blows against them slightly stronger,
yet the couple does not feel anything.
That annoyed the breeze more and decided to increase its magnitude.
Interesting to note that it still don't keep them apart.
Ironically, they decided to stand firmly at their current location.

This is because they begin to feel that moving forward is near impossible.
As they hugged themselves firmly as one.
That really blew the breeze up.
Every time it increase its magnitude,
They response in much stronger proportion than the magnitude of the breeze.

That makes the breeze even annoyed as it fail to set them apart.
When they begin to realize the coolness of the breeze has penetrated into their bodies,
They response to it very positively by hugging each other so tightly as one, so as to keep themselves safe and also not to let the breeze freeze them.

To remain in control over the situation,
They stay focus as one united body.
With one united body, heart and soul,
and their magic hands touch their bodies that sparks the burning flame that
respond naturally, in much greater contrast than the magnitude of the breeze.
With the contrasting result the breeze obtained,
it leaves it no choice, but to give up its hope to fight the losing war.
As a result, the breeze decided to withdraw its attack.

They then realize that they are not frozen as the breeze stop.
They then realize their LOVE is so powerful
that let them conquer the war.

Such an incident makes them recognize the truth that Love
conquer anything and everything.
This is another affirming case of this truth since Day one of mankind's history.
However, it needs to refresh and condition us of this truth.
This is the reason why I blog this short story to this effect.

Hope you not only enjoy reading this inspiring article,
but put it  in practice in your daily lives.
Through practice, it will then sink into our minds and hearts.
Through embracing LOVE mindset, then everything will then turn beautifully.
If we want it to be a reality, then act now.
Change ourselves first, before changing the world.

Love is conqueror of anything and everything.
This truth is never change and stay permanently in the universe.
Through love, everything and anything can be conquered effortlessly.
This is universal truth in the past, present and future.
In short,forever.
So, let Love create a better world for us.

EMBRACE UNCERTAIN MINDSET

Change is unavoidable, so is uncertainty.
Uncertainty is a permanent part of our lives.
No surprise that we rarely say that we are certain.
Despite some times we are certain.

Life is a choice.
As such, we are consistently called to make decisions,
directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly.
That is reality
yet we are constantly making these decisions with limited intelligence.

It is the truth,
yet most of the times, we refuse to accept it.
We are always naive and do not submit to this truth.
Is it because of our pride ?
or is it of something else.

We can never find the answer,
unless we learn to embrace the fact of not knowing everything.

Even the great leaders lead without knowing it all.
Great leaders do not eliminate uncertainty, but learn to navigate through it.
Great leaders lead despite the shadows of uncertainty.

Great leaders recognize that clarity of vision is more important than certainty of the outcome.
Every day, we are expected to make decisions regarding our business, our relationships, our marketing, our ideas, and our strategies.
These decisions are made even though we don’t always have the answers.

I guess this is life.
If we knew everything that was going to happen, we would not need to experience it.
Without such an experience,
There would be nothing to attain, achieve or acquire.


One thing is certain.
Whether you have been and what you have done in the past.
Where we are going is always new, and most often uncertain.

As such, what is the point of worrying of the future.
Just take it as it comes.
Live your life and enjoy every moment of it.
To live, we need to lead within.

MAGNOLIAS..........By Edna Ellison
I spent the week before my daughter's June wedding running last-minute trips to the caterer, florist, tuxedo shop, and the church about forty miles away.

As happy as I was that Patsy was marrying a good Christian young man, I felt laden with responsibilities as I watched my budget dwindle . ...


So
many details, so many bills, and so little time. My son Jack was away at college, but he said he would be there to walk his younger sister down the aisle, taking the place of his dad who had died a few years before. He teased Patsy, saying he'd wanted to give her away since she was about three years old!

To save money, I gathered blossoms from several friends who had large magnolia trees. Their luscious, creamy-white blooms and slick green leaves would make beautiful arrangements against the rich dark wood inside the church.


After the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, we banked the podium area and choir loft with magnolias. As we left just before midnight, I felt tired but satisfied this would be the best wedding any bride had ever had! The music, the ceremony, the reception - and especially the flowers - would be remembered for years.


The big day arrived - the busiest day of my life - and while her bridesmaids helped Patsy to dress, her fiance Tim walked with me to the sanctuary to do a final check. When we opened the door and felt a rush of hot air, I almost fainted; and then I saw them - all the beautiful white flowers were black. Funeral black. An electrical storm during the night had knocked out the air conditioning system, and on that hot summer day, the flowers had wilted and died.


I panicked, knowing I didn't have time to drive back to our hometown, gather more flowers, and return in time for the wedding.


Tim turned to me. 'Edna, can you get more flowers? I'll throw away these dead ones and put fresh flowers in these arrangements.'

I mumbled, 'Sure,' as he be-bopped down the hall to put on his cuff links.

Alone in the large sanctuary, I looked up at the dark wooden beams in the arched ceiling. 'Lord,' I prayed, 'please help me. I don't know anyone in this town. Help me find someone willing to give me flowers - in a hurry!'
I scurried out praying for four things: the blessing of white magnolias, courage to find them in an unfamiliar yard, safety from any dog that may bite my leg, and a nice person who would not get out a shotgun when I asked to cut his tree to shreds.

As I left the church, I saw magnolia trees in the distance.. I approached a house...No dog in sight. I knocked on the door and an older man answered. So far so good. No shotgun.
When I stated my plea the man beamed, 'I'd be happy to!'

He climbed a stepladder and cut large boughs and handed them down to me. Minutes later, as I lifted the last armload into my car trunk, I said, 'Sir, you've made the mother of a bride happy today.'

'No, Ma'am,' he said. 'You don't understand what's happening here.'
'What?' I asked.
'You see, my wife of sixty-seven years died on Monday. On Tuesday I received friends at the funeral home, and on Wednesday.  He paused. I saw tears welling up in his eyes. 'On Wednesday I buried her.' He looked away. 'On Thursday most of my out-of-town relatives went back home, and on Friday - yesterday - my children left.'
I nodded.
'This morning,' he continued, 'I was sitting in my den crying out loud. I miss her so much. For the last sixteen years, as her health got worse, she needed me. But now nobody needs me. This morning I cried, 'Who needs an eighty-six-year-old wore-out man? Nobody!' I began to cry louder. 'Nobody needs me!' About that time, you knocked, and said, 'Sir, I need you.'
I stood with my mouth open.
He asked, 'Are you an angel? The way the light shone around your head into my dark living room...'
I assured him I was no angel.
He smiled. 'Do you know what I was thinking when I handed you those magnolias?'
'No.'
'I decided I'm needed. My flowers are needed. Why, I might have a flower ministry! I could give them to everyone! Some caskets at the funeral home have no flowers. People need flowers at times like that and I have lots of them. They're all over the backyard! I can give them to hospitals, churches - all sorts of places. You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to serve the Lord until the day He calls me home!'

I drove back to the church, filled with wonder. On Patsy's wedding day, if anyone had asked me to encourage someone who was hurting, I would have said, 'Forget it! It's my only daughter's
wedding, for goodness' sake! There is no way I can minister to anyone today.'

But God found a way. Through dead flowers.


'Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.'

If you have missed knowing me, you have missed nothing.  If you have missed some of my emails, you may have missed a laugh.  But, if you have missed knowing my LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, you have missed everything in the world.


May God's blessings be upon you.


THIS IS SO TRUE, BEING NEEDED IS SO UPLIFTING TO EACH OF US...
