Life doesn’t actually knock you down.




Life doesn’t actually knock you down. It does, however, provide you with
many opportunities to evaluate your standing in life: what you stand on,
what you stand for, how you stand within yourself and for yourself.

“The source of all happiness in our earthly lives comes from nature.
Happiness is the essence of everything.
It pervades the biggest giant and the smallest gnome!
It holds praise and gratitude, which rise up to the Creator God!”

– Roselis von Sass(The Truth About the Incas)

“Gardens are not created or made, they unfold,
spiraling open like the silk petals of an evening primrose flower
to reveal the ground plot of
the mind and heart of the gardener
and the good earth.”

~ Wendy Johnson

“There will always be external conditions that require out attention,
people, place and things, this is how life goes.

When we learn to stay peaceful in the midst of outer chaos,
we will learn to know true inner peace.”

God give us women
Women of such mold
Preferring ever honor unto gold
Women who wear their beauty as a flower,
Whose homey virtues are their richest dower.
Say you, “The age needs men!”
I say again, “God give us women
Lest we lack true men.”

One day, a rich dad took his son on a trip. Wanted to show him how poor someone can be. They spent time on the farm of a poor family. On the way home, dad asked, “Did you see how poor they are? What did you learn?”

Son said, “We have one dog, they have four, we have pool, they have rivers, we have lanterns at night, they have stars, we buy foods, they grow theirs, we have walls to protect us, they have no walls but lot of friends , we have encyclopedias, they have Bible.”

Then he added, “Thanks dad for showing me all this. Now I have realized how poor we are.”
