Our Image of God
Shapes our lives
A punishing judge
A comforting guide
Absent, Non-existent
Forever with you
What is your image?
How is it affecting you?

Santa Claus is a messenger from God,
He shares abundance, generosity, jovial caring,
Scrooge and the Grinch are stingy,
Wearing wizened hearts and shrunken souls,
We strive to be Santa and not Scrooge,
Copious presents and seven course meals,
Too much of a good thing boomerangs,
God disappears in “stuff” and a Roman orgy.

Growth is choice in motion,
When I accomplished a goal I was happy,
It did not last very long,
I needed another project,
I couldn’t rest on my laurels,
I worked to attain my new goal,
Unhappily I strove to succeed, 
For short-lived happy moments,
I was unhappy most of the time,
I decided to change my mindset,
Unhappiness is a choice,
So is happiness,
I made up my mind to be happy,
I claimed my happiness,
Regardless of conditions and circumstances,
Not because of them,
I discovered the secret to being happy.

Life accumulates
Death eliminates
Life complicates
Death simplifies
Life encumbers
Death releases.

You cannot do anything
That contradicts your self-image,
Henry Ford observed:
“If you think you can, you can
If you think you can’t, you can’t
Either way you’re right.”
Be bold: do what you would do
If you knew you could not fail.

You’re to blame, I’m the victim,
Innocent, without guilt,
Helpless, powerless,
Self- respect vanishes.
Confronted with my victimhood,
I ADMIT BLAME,
I SHOULDER RESPONSIBILITY,
FIND EMPOWERMENT,
FEEL LIGHT, NOT HEAVY,
GROW INCHES TALLER.

Perfection protects
Nothing penetrates
Brokenness opens
Light enters
Ears listen
Eyes perceive
Minds change
Emotions rouse
Action surges
Life blossoms

When you help only yourself you’re selfish,
When you help others at your expense you become resentful,
Good self-care is not selfish,
You can’t care for others if you don’t care for yourself,
First put on your oxygen mask so you don’t become a casualty,
Now help your child or your neighbor.
