"So many people today lie trapped in the "world of want." They all want more than they have and feel that their happiness lies in the bigger paycheck, the larger home, the special vacation, the promotion, marrying that certain someone, or a host of other wants their hearts desire. But all we should truly want lies in God Himself for, "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want." Trust God for your supply. He'll always give you all you ever really need." ~Ron Lambros, President, Touching Lives

Mark Helperin - silent crossing of a meadow

"Perhaps passing through the gates of death is like passing quietly through the gate in a pasture fence. On the other side, you keep walking, without the need to look back. No shock, no drama, just lifting of a plank or two in a simple wooden gate in a clearing. Neither pain, nor floods of light, not great voices, but just the silent crossing of a meadow." ~Mark Helperin

PASSAGE

“She sat in the dark with her eyes closed bonding to the surface by inhaling deeply and exhaling gradually. Stillness and silence combined filled the space as she connected to her soul and experienced an instant of bliss. Amid the darkness; her smile reflected delight like she had just joined infinity. Suddenly, the sound of a spark broke the silence as she lit a candle and the small flame grew firmer and larger, while not long before the space was as dark as matter in the sky at night beyond the stars, and expressing gratitude in her heart; she absorbed the flame flickering glow brightening the room powerfully…” ~A passage from my Novel, Floranova B.

Collated Quotes and Insights from Rami Lahouel


“Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.” ~Anon

“I let my head fall back, and I gazed into the Eternal Blue Sky. It was morning. Some of the sky was yellow, some the softest blue. One small cloud scuttled along. Strange how everything below can be such death and chaos and pain while above the sky is peace, sweet blue gentleness. I heard a shaman say once, the Ancestors want our souls to be like the blue sky.”

INSIGHTS

""A friend can be a caress in moment of distress, a tender shoulder to comfort us, and a warm heart to warm us in a tough winter

He can be a protection against us, and meet present whenever we need.
During our absence he will take our defense against any misplaced Word, as if they assaulted him in person.

We have confidence in him, that we confess to him our most buried secrets in the heart.

At times, he comes before the family, and even a crazy love can't push him or throw him out of our lives.

On the other hand, if by misfortune the confidence is lost one way or another, the situation becomes critical and the voltage will go up to replace the beautiful moments of friendship.

We can forgive wrongs of Love, while friendship is hard to grant forgiveness or to trust it again.

It is necessary only to rely on time provided that with his magic, it will dispel all evil heard."
~Rami Lahouel

"A woman who is quiet and withdraws without sign of life, it is that she is suffering in silence. If she's not sensitive to what is happening around her, she's touched in its depths.

If her choice is to withdraw, that she is disappointed and feels really injured.
This woman suffers without daring to say anything and will say nothing seen that this time it is affected in the soul.

She will prefer death to confess what she really weighs, until losing everything, in order to keep her dignity.

A real woman having a soul that bleeds no longer returns on her steps; she will disappear with her sentence to an uncertain fate." ~Rami Lahouel

♥*✿*•♥

For a woman of exceptional beauty as we have never seen; With its pure and tender heart, she drew everyone. I'm so proud of her. She is the white rose of my country.

When she smiles, she is bewitching that the Sun and the Moon get mad and envy her.

When she laughs, her man becomes even more crazy about her that he doesn't take his eyes off her.

I offer her these roses of all colours and I know that they are insignificant in their beauty, but my rose is modest and will accept them." ~Rami Lahouel

PENNY FOR A THOUGHT: Special FRIEND


"Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end." ~Anon

Archbishop Fulton Sheen - people

“The worse sinners are nice people who, by denying sin, make the cure of sin impossible. Sin is very serious, but it is more serious to deny sin. That is why those who very often deny sin become scandal mongers, tale bearers, and hypercritics because they have to project their real guilt outside of themselves to others. And this gives them, also, a great illusion of goodness. It will be found generally true that the increase of fault finding is in direct proportion to the denial of sin.” ~Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Three to Get Married)

Brigitte Nicole Quotes


“All of life’s lessons you have been through is only a preparation for what is about to happen in your life. If the experience brings you joy, much wisdom has prepared you for this journey. If it brings you sorrow, remember lessons will keep striking you at your weakest point because that’s what needs most strengthening.” ~Brigitte Nicole, administrator -Lessons Learned in Life

"Always know when to let go. When a thought is bringing you more misery than peace, let go of the thought; when a person is bringing more pain than joy to your life, let go… You cannot be your best if you lack joy and peace." ~Brigitte Nicole

"Be with someone who is proud of you, someone you can laugh with, someone who listens to you, understands you, who treats you well and makes you a priority." ~Brigitte Nicole

"Don’t get discouraged. Your time is coming. What you are going through is not permanent. Life is a constant ebb and flow. Sometimes things move at a snail's-pace and then suddenly without warning, change happens in a blink of an eye. So be ready for new possibilities and new beginnings. Truly amazing things can happen in a single moment." ~Brigitte Nicole

"Don’t let people change the loving and caring person you are. Don’t let anyone get you down. Use the love and goodness inside you to stay strong." ~Brigitte Nicole

"Either they like you or they don’t. Never try to convince somebody of your worth. If a person doesn't appreciate you, they don't deserve you. Respect yourself and be with people who truly value "you". -Brigitte Nicole

"Find someone who openly communicates their feelings. Someone who realizes that you're not perfect and never expects you to be. Someone who would never want to lose you and feels so blessed to be with you. One who gives their heart completely. Someone who says I love you and means it. Last but not least, find someone who looks forward to a future with you and with each and every new day, falls in love with you all over again." -Brigitte Nicole

"For those that feel that being kind hearted to people got you nothing but rejection and hurt, do not let that change the person that you are. If you are a thoughtful person who does nice things, don’t stop just because these people failed to see the goodness inside you. It’s their reaction or lack of response that is the problem, not yours. Don’t change yourself. They need to change. They need to work on themselves. Keep being the wonderful kind you." ~Brigitte Nicole

"I don't want someone to want me only when I'm around them. I want someone to want and miss me when I'm not." ~Brigitte Nicole

"If there’s someone you cannot get out of your mind, whisper a prayer for them. That’s how God moves." ~Brigitte Nicole

"If you regret some of the decisions you made in the past, don’t be so hard on yourself. At that time, you did your best with the knowledge that you had. At that time, you did your best with the experience you had. If you were to make those decisions with the wisdom you have now, you would choose differently. You would handle life's challenges in more effective ways. So give yourself a break and forgive yourself. Time and experience has a wonderful way to make us realize that we prosper, grow and learn to make better choices today, for ourselves and those we care for." ~Brigitte Nicole

"It's funny how sometimes a line from a song, a quote or a memory can stir so many emotions. These are times when a good cup of tea, a smile, a listening ear or a nice long walk in the rain will put me back together." ~Brigitte Nicole

"Never apologise for being sensitive or emotional. Let this be a sign that you've got a big heart and aren't afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength." ~Brigette Nicole

"Never define yourself by your relationship status, your income or your looks. It’s your generosity, kindness and compassion that counts." ~Brigitte Nicole

"People show that they care for you in beautiful different ways. They want to hear your stories. They want to listen
to your problems. You can pour your heart and soul and they won't make you feel like you've made a mess. You can depend on them on the days when you feel lost. And with just a little time with them, you feel you weren’t really lost at all. All you needed was a compass of caring from someone who understands you. They want to make your day better. They reach out to you. One nice definition of love, I think, is that you both make each other's happiness important as they light up your life." ~Brigitte Nicole

"Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we are hurting or we will never know what is waiting for us around the bend." ~Brigitte Nicole

"There’s only so many times you can allow someone to let you down before you will no longer tolerate being disappointed. When things go wrong between two people, something has got to give. You get to the point where you get tired of being the only one trying to fix things, it’s not giving up, it’s realizing you had enough. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts.” ~Brigitte Nicole

"True love is when you love someone until your last breath." -Brigitte Nicole

"When I feel stressed or anxious, I love to sit near the ocean. It soothes and calms my senses; the rocking motion of the waves help heal my heart as the ocean breeze cleanses my thoughts into perspective." ~Brigitte Nicole

"You'll know when a relationship is right for you. It will enhance your life, not complicate your life." ~Brigitte Nicole.
