All that life unfolds/offers is transient. i.e. it lasts only for a short time. So, if/when life is soft/good to you, do glorify/appreciate God the giver and then, enjoy/celebrate/share it positively/cheerfully. But, if/when life is tough/bad to you never worry. For, your tough/bad time will sooner or later subside/vanish.

All the time we hear "Love is Blind." But it's not true. Blind is the Infatuation, while Love is All-seeing and All-accepting amazing aspect of life. Love is Strong and Permanent vis-a-vis Infatuation that is Fragile and Transitory. In my view, Love is like Silk, which is delicate, gentle, illuminating and soft - and yet so strong that no force on earth can tear it apart easily. Love is accepting each other for good qualities as well as flaws, and for strengths as much as weaknesses. Love is working together through the challenges of life, and overcoming obstacles with Synergy. I would summarize Love in three T's: Trust, Transparency and Teamwork.

All this will not be finished in the first hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first thousand days, nor in the life of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.
Along with such abundance of grace comes the gift of righteousness. Again grace and righteousness combine to allow believers to experience the enthroned life in Jesus Christ. In God's dealings with man today, grace is king. Grace reigns through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord
Although the protesters in Egypt and neighboring countries are calling for democratic reforms, in reality they are calling for better economic life. Democracy is only a means to an end. I believe the driving forces behind the Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings are economical. A chronic high unemployment combined with an inflation in food prices is a volatile mix that can lead to major civic outbursts.
Although the whole of this life were said to be nothing but a dream and the physical world nothing but a phantasm, I should call this dream or phatasm real enough, if, using reason well, we were never deceived by it.
