Setting goals is one of the most important things you can to guarantee your personal, professional and financial success. Goal are like a road map to your target destination. Each goal accomplished is another mile behind you on the way to where you want to be. If I have accomplished in life it is because I have been willing to work hard. ”I had to make my own living and my own opportunity! But I made it! Don’t sit and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them. Nothing worthwhile was ever accomplished without the will to start, the enthusiasm to continue and, regardless of temporary obstacles, the persistence to complete. My greatest day is yet to come. Of all the things that I’ve accomplished, my greatest day is yet to come. But it will never come if I don’t pursue it. Chance can allow you to accomplish a goal every once in while, But consistent achievement happens only if you love what you are doing. Life is not meant to be lived in your comfort zone.
Forgiveness must be immediate, whether or not a person asks for it. Trust must be rebuilt over time. Trust requires a track record. If someone hurts you repeatedly, you are commanded by God to forgive them instantly, but you are not expected to trust them immediately, and you are not expected to continue allowing them to hurt you. Holding a grudge doesn’t make you strong; It make you bitter. Forgiving doesn’t make you weak; It sets you free. Bitterness is believing God got it wrong, Worry is not believing God will get it right, And unforgiveness is believing you are right even after God says you’re wrong. Forgiveness is the best form of Love. It takes a strong person to say sorry and an even stronger person to forgive. We might temporarily impress people by being fake, But we can permanently impact people by being real. To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you. Forgiveness does not change the past but it does enlarge the future. The most important lesson on the road to spiritual maturity is how to truly forgive. No one likes to be held in their history, especially people trying to make themselves better.
Loyalty isn’t grey. It’s black and white. You’re either loyal completely, or not loyal at all. And people have to understand this. You can’t be loyal only when it serves you. Family is more than blood and a name. It’s the people who stood by you when you needed them the most, and who made you laugh when you felt like you couldn’t. ” Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.” Some people in your family will come miles to bury you. But they won’t even come to support you when you are alive. Family suppose to help family not watch them struggle and then talk about them. Life has taught me that you can’t control someone’s loyalty. No matter how good you are to them, doesn’t mean they’ll treat you the same. No matter how much they mean to you, doesn’t mean they’ll value you the same. Sometimes the people you love the most, turn out to be the people you can trust the least. Only trust family who can see these three things in you: The sorrow behind your smile, the love behind your anger, and reason behind your silence. Blood makes you related, Loyalty makes you family. Family is Everything.
You gave no one a last farewell,
Nor ever said good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
A million times we will miss you,
A million times we will cry,
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else can fill,
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
We will meet again someday,
I know you are in a better place now,
I thank God he made you our brother
While you were here on earth.
Pat and Aaron
Missing you always , You never said I’m leaving, You never said goodbye, You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. A million times I needed you A million times I cried, If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly In death I love you still, In my heart I hold a place that only you can fill. I thought of you today Mama & Daddy, but that is nothing new. I thought about of you yesterday and days before that too. I think about both of you in silence, I often both of you’re names but all I have now are memories and pictures in a frame. Your memories are keep sake, from which I will never part. God has both of you in his arms now, I have both of you in my heart… ”Gone But Never Forgotten” Mama & Daddy although we are apart now your spirit lives within my heart forever. Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean, ”I’ll miss you,” until we meet again. In Memory of my Mom & Dad Robert Lee Cunningham Sr. & Mable Price Cunningham.
When a man is truly interested in you, there will be no need for you to do the pursuing. Men are born to pursue women. Yes, you can pursue a man if you want to, but in most cases thats just an obvious sign that he’s not into you. It’s not natural for a man to sit back and let the women do all the work. For a man who claims to like you to sit back allow you to do all of the calling, texting, dating arraignments, talks about the future etc, it’s pretty obvious where you stand in that man’s life. She is a Woman. she is mother, daughter, wife , sister, she is a person. She is smart, strong, crafty, passionate, courageous , she is action, emotion, devotion, she is hope, devotion, beauty and power. She gives you life she gives you respect, love, gratitude. She believes in you, She will nurture you, fight for you, and in the end she deserves nothing but the best from you. Most men aren’t smart enough to realize the higher you elevate your Queen, the less available she is to the other man. Women have been called Queens for a long time it comes from birth. No matter the circumstances ”All Women Are Queens.”
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. When something happens you have three choices you can either let it define you. Let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you. Sometimes all you can do is smile. Move on with your day, hold back the tears and pretend you’re okay. It’s all in your mine whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed, You will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you always acted, You will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, All you have to do is change your mind…
Pain is when you’re slowly dying on the inside and you’re way too weak to speak about it so you keep silent and suffer alone. ”When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. ”When we state no one could possible know your pain or suffering because they don’t walk in your shoes. A reminder there is someone that walks in your shoes everyday and He love you-God.” Things that happen alone the way determine the final result. I think the pain and suffering I went through in the past…lead me here today. When pain and suffering strikes our Faith it is well founded and is standing on the promises of God and for all God’s promises have strong conformation in Christ. The prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets, The prettiest eyes cry the most tears, The kindest hearts have felt the most pain.
Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile & love you no matter what. No family is perfect… we argue, we fight. We even stop speaking at times but in the end, family is family… the love will always be there threw the thick and thin regardless. Always notice and pay attention to the people who are happy for your happiness and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart. We don’t just get to grow old together as a family we get to grow up as a family just ask God he’s part of all our families and we don’t even have to ask, Learn to pray not because you need something from God but because you are thankful he holds some many families together …..
When it’s all said and done , the finish line doesn’t care how many miles you have ran or how fast you have gone. It just cares that you arrive. That you finish what you started. Crossing the starting line may be an act of courage, but crossing the finish line is an act of faith. Faith is what keeps us going when nothing else will. Faith is the emotion that will give you victory over your past, the demons in your soul, and all those voices that tell you what you can and cannot be. Your current situation now, may looked jacked up and even messed up. But don’t you dare let up nor give up! Remember, The Finish Line never moves people give up before crossing it… Your Physical strength will get you to the start line. But mental strength will get you to the finish line. To all my Facebook Friends and Family always remember Life has changing and sometimes disappointing variables that can be discouraging. But The Finish Line will never change. #WeAllWeGot. From my family to your much love and please practice ”Social Distancing.”
