Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

“Open my eyes so I can see wonderful things”
PSALMS 119 VS 18
A man on a commuter train kept gazing out the window and saying , ‘wonderful;just wonderful!. What was he looking at?
Rundown apartment buildings and rubbish spilling over onto pavements!
After hearing him say ‘Wonderful’ four or five times the lady beside him remarked, ‘it doesn’t look to wonderful to me’.
Whereupon the man replied, ‘I’ve been blind for the past thirty years.But through the skill of a surgeon, the generosity of a donor, and a corneal transplant, I’ve been given the gift of two new eyes. And to me, everything I see is wonderful.’
LESSON OF TODAY
grumbling blinds you to enjoy God’s blessings, but gratitude opens your eyes to enjoy them.

I see the unravelling of POWER
Fire and adreline runs through her veins..
She will fly one day
Nothing seems complete
She’s always on the lookout for opportunities.
Elegance personified in many ways
She withstand the definition of herself,
From the praises of others.
Her victory isn’t of handclaps
The fulfilment of the heart and soul
No one knows her inner persona
Like rods of iron;
Her strength isn’t to be questioned
An ocean of love
Flows through her heart,
Ready to pour to the needy of sympathy and love
She’s quick to grasp an opportunity to be of assistance
How I know is
Because I Am Superwoman.

I can’t tell you how many days I went to work feeling like a worn heel of an old shoe. I was less effective, tenser, unable to perform to full capacity.
Can you relate ?
We worry about things that don’t even matter. Getting wrapped around our heads about what tomorrow holds. At times, we wrestled all night with issues that couldn’t be resolved until morning.
Can all our worries add a single moment to your life?
Just know life is too short to be spent worried about things beyond control. A verse of bible encourages
Dont worry about anything;instead, Pray about everything~ phillipians4vs6
