A Creed to live by...


By Nancye Sims

Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others; 
It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don't let your goals be what other people deem important;
Only you know what is best for you.

Don't take for granted the things close to your heart;
Cling to them as you would your life!   For without them, life is meaningless

Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past for the future...
By living your life one day at a time, You live all the days of your life

Don't give up when you have something to give
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying

Don't be afraid to encounter risk,
It is by taking chances that we learn to be brave

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find
The quickest way to receive love, is to give love
The fastest way to lose love is to hold on too tightly
And the best way to keep love is to give it wings

Don't dismiss your dreams
To be without dreams is to be without hope
To be without hope is to be without purpose

Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only 
Where you have been but also where you are going

Remember, Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way...

Your Words

Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have power to create conditions in your life.  
What you speak about, you can bring about.

If you keep saying you can't stand your job, you might lose your job.

If you keep saying you can't stand your body, your body can become sick.

If you keep saying you can't stand your car, your car could be stolen or just stop operating.

If you keep saying you're always broke, guess what? You'll always be broke.

If you keep saying you can't trust a man or trust a woman,
you will always find someone in your life to hurt and betray you.

If you keep saying you can't find a job, you will remain unemployed.

If you keep saying you can't find someone to love you or believe in you,
your very thoughts will attract more experiences to confirm your beliefs.

If you keep talking about a divorce or break up in a relationship, then you might end up with it.

Turn your thoughts and conversations around to be more positive and power packed with faith, hope, love and action.

Don't be afraid to believe that you can have what you want and deserve.

Watch your Thoughts, they become words

Watch your Words, they become actions

Watch your Actions, they become habits

Watch your Habits, they become character

Watch your Character, for it becomes your Destiny


Let George Do It

Some members keep their Lodges (Chapters) strong,
While others join and just belong,
Some dig right in, some serve with pride,
Some go along , just for the ride.

Some volunteer to do their share,
While some lay back and just don't care;
On meeting nights some always show
While there are those who never go.

Some always pay their dues ahead,
Some get behind for months, instead.
Some do their best, some build, some make,
Some never give, but always take,
Some drag, some pull, some don't, some do.

CONSIDER, which of these are you?

The Four Candles - A poem of Hope

The Four Candles burned slowly. Their ambiance was so soft you could hear them speak.

The first candle said, I am Peace, but these days, nobody wants to keep me".

Then Peace's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.

The second candle says, "I am Faith, but these days, I am no longer indispensable." Then Faith's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.

Sadly, the third candle spoke, "I am Love and I haven't the strength to stay lit any longer." "People put me aside and don't understand my importance. They even forget to love those who are nearest to them." And waiting no longer, Love goes out completely.

Suddenly . . . A child enters the room and sees the three candles no longer burning. The child begins to cry, "Why are you not burning? You are supposed to stay lit until the end."

Then the Fourth Candle spoke gently to the little boy, "Don't be afraid, for I am Hope, and while I still burn, we can re-light the other candles."

With Shining eyes the child took the Candle of Hope and lit the other three candles.

Never let the Flame of Hope go out of your life. With Hope, no matter how bad things look and are, Peace, Faith and Love can Shine brightly in our lives. Don't let these candles go out in your life!

The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.

He who kneels before God can stand before anyone.
Enjoy the wonder along the way!!

"The DIFFERENCE between a successful person and others is not lack of strength,
nor a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will!"
