Naked People in Heaven

This is such a great piece that I had to share it. Often, we only think about now (our microwave society). Yet, there is more much more eternally than we can ever imagine. Let this help to start your week off with a bang. There will be naked people in HEAVEN… but you won’t see them as such.

Beautiful Life with Cancer

Instant bad mood.  I search around for my screaming phone on the floor under my bed.  The damn alarm clock continues to scream at the top of its lungs.  Slowly gaining control of my sleeping body, I step out of bed, pick up my phone and turn off the alarm.  The pain of waking up.  In heaven, I will roll over and enjoy the waking up process just as much as snuggling into bed and drifting off to sleep.  (That is if we sleep in heaven.)

My world runs about me in fast forward.  Honking impatiently at the slow moving car, spending what we don’t have for the newest item that hits the shelves, driving around our children to some place other than home.  Why do I join the insanity of the crowd?  I do believe in busying oneself with hard work, but that is not what is happening here…

Over the past three years I have been on an extraordinary journey!
With just a casual conversation with a friend, I started a journey I never expected to make. That journey began adiscovery of my very humble Mansfield family roots. At the same timeI uncovered the path that my father, Emanuel Mansfield, famed concert tenor, took to reach, what seemed like, an unreachable dream – despite so many odds against him.
“This is my story – this is my song”…
The world needs to hear all of our stories — each story is like a missing piece of fabric in this giant quilt called “Life”.Each of our pieces makes our world a more interesting, more exciting, and more colorful place in which to live.
My life changed the day I started on this journey. I hope my story will inspire you to start…

Just this morning I heard Donnie McClurklin talking about how God is in control. I then signed on to my computer and I happened upon this particular blog that spoke about the wisest thing to do. It all goes hand in hand.  Hopefully you’re encouraged and inspired today!

How I Found My “Why” and Why it’s Important to Find Yours

I read this a couple of days ago and it keeps running through my heart and mind. Hopefully it does not take such tragedy to motivate you to action. For me, just reading this post has motivated me to re-commit to several goals that I have been procrastinating on. Let me know if this one motivates you like it has me.

My Journey 2 Scratch

nietzsche_3Do you have a why? Why do you want to do what you do?  My why found me five years ago…

It was five years ago today, at the age of 24, I was sitting next to my mother as she lay on her deathbed dying of cancer and I watched as she took her last breath.  As I sat there, staring blankly at her now soulless body, my mind was flooded with so many thoughts and emotions.  Most importantly, at that moment, I truly realized just how short life can be and I now had a deep desire and a “why” to do something great with my life. 

She is why I want to go after my dreams.  She is why I want to inspire others to go after theirs and she is why I want to work to improve myself each and every day, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
