WHAT IS A WORKOUT!!!
A workout is 25 percent perspiration and 75 percent determination. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts self-discipline. Doing it is easy once you get started.
A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind, and toughens the spirit. When you work out regularly, your problems diminish and your confidence grows.
A workout is a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is the badge of a winner - the mark of an organized, goal-oriented person who has taken charge of his, or her, destiny.
A workout is a wise use of time and an investment in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary.
A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to opportunity and success. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers that can release it.
A workout is a form of rebirth. When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF.

The Awakening~There comes a time in your life when you finally GET IT...When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out - ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on. This is your Awakening!!

Have you ever had a "Jesus hug",
Do you know what one feels like?
If you've never had a "Jesus hug",
I pray one day you might.
A "Jesus hug" is different,
As far as hugging goes;
It's a little taste of Heaven,
Here on earth below.
Only those who love the Lord,
Can give a "Jesus hug";
It conveys God's grace and mercy,
And unconditional love.
Those who give out "Jesus hugs"
Always seem to somehow know
Just when you're in need of one
To make your spirit glow.
And if you ever need one
I hope that I will see,
So I can give you a "Jesus hug";
Just like someone did for me.
I'll be hugging you soon!
The list of the benefits of brisk walking is endless. The bottom line is this: WALKING MAKES LIFE BETTER! A 10-minute brisk walk a day cuts your chances of a heart attack by 50%!

Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus precious name. Amen.

Its small, yellow head peeks sweetly through the grass, eager to kiss the sun's golden rays of light. It's just a weed, a nuisance a pain only, there to annoy.
Or is it?
It IS just a weed, with a short, outcast life.
But it spends its short life better than most,
Living only to bring happiness to others.
I don't think many mothers can honestly say they haven't smiled upon
receiving a weed or two,
A small, sweaty, fistful of weeds, clutched sweetly by her small child.
Who can say, they have never made a wish as they blow on its fluffy white head
Watching each little seed fly away, heavily laden with the blower's hopes and dreams?
When I look at my yard, the first thing I notice is a spot of golden color,
Strewn Among the green carpet,
Here and there, dotting the grass with color.
My yard reminds me of the world and the people in it.
The masses of people who travel in clumps, each alike, are like the grass.
But, the people who walk the Earth, trying to make it a better place to live,
remind me of the little yellow flowers. -The Weed
Ask yourself this:
Are you in a Clump?
Or are you an individual?
STAND FOR SOMETHING, OR YOU'LL FALL FOR ANYTHING!
Be Blessed, Be a BLESSING

Optimist: someone who thinks there's even hope for pessimism.
Optimist: someone who believes that even a second chance gets a second chance.
Optimist: someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it's a cha-cha.
Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
'Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears,
'Til in Heaven the deed appears -
Pass it on.
~Henry Burton, Pass It On
Dear Lord, I pray that I can be a cheerleader for others as Paul was. Help me to look beyond my difficulties, so that I can root for others. Amen!
