    Wow, How Things Change From One Minute To The Next.

    I wrote on here on April 23 about my wife having an affair and how it has completely turned my life upside down.  Today, a friend I have not seen since I had come home on leave while in the military contacted me.  The feeling I had when she told me who she was is just...

    You asked, "When did you find yourself?

    " And I simply said, "When somebody loved me." Until now, I didn't realize how true that was. Thinking back, I wasn't afraid of loving him or being with him. No, I was afraid of losing him when I let myself go, when he took a good look and saw the real me. That I wasn't what...

    Find The Reasoning.

    There have been so many negative things that happened in my life that actually turned out to be great. I believe things happen for a reason. If something bad happens to you, then you learn to appreciate everything else a little more. I always try to see the meaning and...

    Yeah Right

    Everything happens for a reason,like in the 14th century when the plaque hit Europe,people asked " why is God punishing us?After all we believe in Jesus so all of our sins are forgiven."The only reason they could come up with was that God was punishing them for allowing the non...

    I believe that things happen

    for a reason , that people and situations come into our lives that have meaning. I am not saying there is no chance in the universe , just that there is a grand design and we have choices , and those choices decide what path we take and the people that in turn come into our...

    The strangest thing happened today.

    .. I thought I should tackle a task on my to-do list. After doing an online search, I found a notebook that seemed like a suitable buy and checked where I could do a hands-on inspection in a city store. After noting the route and opening times, I set off on a pretty long trek...

    I believe things happen

    for a reason, however I keep asking myself, why do I keep attracting the insecure men? So many people have tell me "because you haven't find the right one" yet I know my significant other loves me, I feel it, but he's still confuse, still doesn't know if he wants to stay or...

    Sometimes we have an experience

    that we don’t understand, but if we look deeply, or wait long enough, a reason for that experience will usually reveal itself. All the events in our lives lead to other events, and all that we have manifested in this present moment is the result of past events and experiences...

    I was getting ready for a teaching session.

    Got to work early so that I have enough time to go through my .ppt slides and match the sequence with my handouts. I wanted to have it all sorted and in my head, so that I would coordinate my lesson smoothly. In the back of my mind, however, I sensed that I was preoccupied...
