The Timeless Nature of Friendship

"A friend is one who knows who you are,

understands where you have been,

accepts what you have become,

and still gently allows you to grow."

-William Shakespeare

I was just told about a free Bible program that has 200 Christian books, various versions of the Bible, dozens of classic Christian books, Bible dictionaries, and other commentaries! I wanted to share this great opportunity with you. If you go to this page
It tells what books are included besides all the various Bibles that you can read or compare to each other verse by verse, and at the very top is the download buttons to download onto your PC or onto your Mac. ENJOY and share with anyone who might like studying the gospel!!!

Michael Jackson had lupus!

This interested me, because it helps me understand a lot of what Michael suffered with physically and emotionally alone. Its a very frustrating disease with little treatment or help because doctors understand so little about it. He might have been on multiple medications to help the multiple symptoms, because easing symptoms is the most usual way of handling lupus if the patient is not willing to take the dangerous medications that are often worse than the illness. It also explains why he had hired a Dr. to be at his beck and call 24/7. The one that was with him when he collapsed. The ravages of the illness itself could have caused his demise, but so could any medications he had been on, or the reaction of more than 1 medication he might have been taking.
    Anna Nicole Smith also had lupus, and died under similar circumstances as Michael.

Positive Alternatives

Rather than being annoyed, be amused.
Instead of getting angry, become curious.
In place of envy, feel admiration.
In place of worry, take action.
In place of doubt, have faith.
Negative energy is just positive energy
that's flowing in the opposite direction.

There's no need to fight or run away from that
negative energy. All you need to do is change its
direction. The more negative you are, the more
positive you can be. An automobile that can travel
70 miles per hour to the east... can also travel
just as fast when going west. But first, someone
must turn it around.

When you sense yourself becoming negative, stop
and consider what it would mean to apply that
negative energy in the opposite direction. Turn your
sadness into caring. Transform your complaints into
useful suggestions. Change your bitterness into
determination. The energy is already there,
All you need to do is change its direction.

Small Powers

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. 
~Leo Buscaglia


Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you.
Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight. When we do the best we can,
we never know what miracle is wrought in our life,or in the life of another.
~Helen Keller
