Today’s Positive Thought

    Today, in honor of Sept. 11, I ask that you take a moment to pray for the first responders who gave their lives in the line of duty; the flight attendants, pilots and passengers who also lost their lives and all who died on this infamous day.

Thank you for doing so and honoring these souls and remembering their families. Pax Domini to all who perished on this date.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day brings back many memories from my childhood; my parents and uncles served in WWII and my grandfathers in WWI; it was therefore with reverence that the day was celebrated. My mother would tell a story about a parade that was held in her hometown with a very old Civil War vet riding in a car and everyone cheering him.

Growing up we called today, Decoration Day. The Saturday before Decoration Day the Boy Scout troop I was with would place flags on the graves of all who served at the local cemetery, as well as on Veteran’s Day.

On Decoration Day our town honored our fallen heroes and those who were serving in the military with a parade. All the local school bands, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, VFW members, and a variety of other groups participated in honoring our men and women. Speeches were delivered by our veteran’s one of whom lost both legs in Korea and was a local politician, state, county, and local dignitaries.

On a personal note, I volunteered at our VA Hospital and lo those many years ago I met a young man who lost both legs in Viet Nam. To Carl, wherever you are, thank you. I truly hope you achieved the goals that we spoke of during your recovery.

On this Memorial Day remember to say a prayer of thanks for all who served/serving in the military past and present.

Your Power

   Your power lies within yourself, in your heart and in your mind. 

There is power in your thoughts, beliefs, and concepts and most importantly in your spoken word. Choose carefully, for your overall well-being and prosperous life, those thoughts, beliefs, concepts and spoken words you want to be associated with.  Life will forever and always honor you at your own taking. 

Create the new self-image you desire and stay the course.  Set goals that will allow you to stretch and challenge you to reach outside your comfort zone.  Allow yourself to become the successful and prosperous person you desire to be.  Take your dream(s) and make it (them) a reality.

It is so very important for us to believe in ourselves to move forward in living our life.  Whenever we say, “I am…”  we are declaring what we are associating ourselves with; be it good, bad or indifferent.

Become aware of what you add to the words, “I am…”  Use words that are positive and uplifting; Prosperous, Abundant, Wealthy, Successful, and Healthy.  If you wish, add a positive phrase to the words, “I am presented opportunities today for my success.”

Start the day with a positive statement, “I believe in myself, my abilities and my talents.” 

You are filled with an unlimited power to do and to be…stop limiting yourself, expand your mind and allow the abundance of life to shower you with all that is great and good. 

You are created to be a prosperous and successful expression of life, so let it happen.

Today is your day, claim it and go for the gold.

Jay
