Today we are nobody; tomorrow we will be somebody.
Today people don’t love us for who we are; tomorrow they would wish they had loved us.
It will be to their regret; to us a joy to know that the best revenge is making people come to know they have made a mistake with us…that we are worth so much more than their price tag.
Time changes! Life is all that matters. Nothing is as valuable as life.
And as long as we have life, we’ll keep hoping; we’ll keep believing; we’ll keep channelling our energies into positive things!
That’s the only way we would be successful.
We won’t lose our heads over those who want nothing to do with us today; we would channel that energy into something more productive, that adds value to our lives, that makes our lives much better and much happier!
God is such a good God and He’s got us all on good footing! He’s proud of who you are and He’s building you for a glorious future! Focus on Him!

Adam blamed his wife; Eve blamed the serpent. I’m sure the devil would have blamed God himself if God had asked his opinion.
That wouldn’t be surprising because many of us blame God for our misfortunes. Everybody is tempted to blame somebody first of all for their misfortune. It’s often a battle before they accept they had a role to play in their own misfortune.
Own up today! And after that, don’t sit down with a belly of regrets over the past. Leave the past behind…there’s a future waiting for you.

The axe forgets; the tree remembers the scars,
Tomorrow at the scent of Heaven’s rain,
It will sprout again bearing fruits,
Fruits to which you will come to feast,
Forgetting you once cut short a life,
That God did not allow to die.

Your love awakens my soul
And plants a fire in my heart
And leaves me wishing for more
If only I were God
I will waste no time in making you a Goddess
If I were a trader
I will trade in all my goods in exchange for you
If I were a soothsayer
I will say many soothing words
Just to make your future one to forever spend with me
If I were the wind
I will blow away all obstacles
So you could be mine alone forever
If I were a miner
I will dig even to bottomless depths
Just to discover thy most precious jewels
If I was an artist
I would use the jewels in you
To make a perfect art of beauty
More perfect than the arts of Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni
And If I were a preacher
I will preach mighty sermons
Only by your humble figure and love
Only Heaven knows how much I adore you
And the many things I keep wishing I were
Just to fully demonstrate my love for you
But I am just me
Wishing above all else
That you will accept me just as I am
Not for what I am not or wish I were
