How would I improve myself in 2016?

Sharmelle December 28, 2015~Yep, That’s me Sharmelle lmbo!!!

How would I improve myself in 2016?

Well, I quit smoking in August of 2015, so as of New Years Day of 2016 I will be 130 days Smoke Free. I am so proud of myself for accomplishing quitting smoking for as long as I have. It was not as hard as I made it be before lol. Rob and I ran out of Tobacco and Tubes before the month was over in August lol. Well Dad did not come over until the third day we were with out cigarettes… The first thing Rob did was ask dad for a cigarette and I decided  not to ask for one because I slept it of for the three days we were with out. The only problem that I am having after quitting smoking is Gaining some of my weight back and I am having troubles losing what I gained because I am always hungry and eating now lol. But I will fix that in January 2016 lol.

As of some time between January 5th and January 7th I will start my Gluten Free Diet do to an illness I have been having problems with and I have had tests done for it; but they all came out normal for the tests that were done. So I figures I would try a Gluten Free Diet for a month to see if that is the actual problem after all. But depending on how I like this diet I may keep up this diet though the year. I’ve also been told that you lose a lot of weight on this diet so this would be good for me in the long run.

In addition to starting my business I need to finish/start my portfolio all over again Online, Start using my blog more often. I will be trying to make new graphics for my business and other places on the Internet. Oh so cool I get to use my Creative Fonts that I ordered after my parents sent $20.00 for Christmas lol. I am so happy that I have fonts that I may use on my graphics with out having to pay to use each font on my graphics for my business lol.

I would like to include that I am trying to start my business at zazzle.com with my graphics. I am doing this because I am afraid of losing my income after the next presidency Because they do not seem to care about the poor/less fortunate families in this country. But beside that I am so happy to be able to sell my graphics on products right now and in the future.

I will also be helping out in several of my communities . There is A New Gaia Community that I have some tasks that I am in charge of. I am also helping out with Poetry Showcase. I will also be helping a friend start a ministry/community again. This Ministry/community is call Ruby for Women.

One day a teacher asked her students…

This is an inspirational story one of my friends received from one of his friends with a request to share it with his friends. I asked this friend if it would be ok to pass it along to my friend and he said yes. So I am passing it along here because it is an inspirational story…

 

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.

Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down.
It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.

That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.

On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. “Really?” she heard whispered. “I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!” and, “I didn’t know others liked me so much.” were most of the comments.

No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn’t matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on.

Several years later, one of the students was killed in VietNam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so mature.

The church was packed with his friends. One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin.

As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. “Were you Mark’s math teacher?” he asked. She nodded: “yes.” Then he said: “Mark talked about you a lot.”
After the Funeral, most of Mark’s former classmates went together to a luncheon. Mark’s mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher
“We want to show you something,” his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket. “They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you might recognize it.
Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times. The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark’s classmates had said about him.
“Thank you so much for doing that,” Mark’s mother said. “As you can see, Mark treasured it.”
All of Mark’s former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, “I still have my list. It’s in the top drawer of my desk at home.”
Chuck’s wife said, “Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album.”

“I have mine too,” Marilyn said. “It’s in my diary.”
Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. “I carry this with me at all times,” Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: “I think we all saved our lists.”
That’s when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.
The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life will end one day. And we don’t know when that one day will be.
So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are special and important. Tell them, before it is too late.

A New Year With The Lord

new-years-angels-postcard-merry-hristmas-happy-year-62736601

A New Year With The Lord– M.S.Lowndes

A new year is about to unfold

With new opportunities to explore

Doors will open for new experiences

New adventures with the Lord

Remember not the former things

The things of this past year

The Lord will do new things in us

Much more than we are aware

For He will make a way for us

As we put our trust in Him

And He will guide our every step

By His presence we have within

What God has placed within our hearts

We find we’ll be able to do

If we look for the opportunities

We’ll see the door to go through

We mustn’t let anything hold us back

But rise up and take our place

And be all that God wants us to be

With a fresh touch of His grace!

Look For The Good

angels-indulge-624x951

Look For The Good

In the New Year, let’s resolve
to get less stressed, upset, anxious
about things over which we have no control.
Lets have a narrower focus on our lives,
loving and helping our family and friends,
making our community a better place to live,
to create peace and contentment.

In the New Year, let’s resolve
to pay less attention to depressing stories
on TV, in magazines and newspapers,
and to stop focusing on what we want
that we haven’t got,
instead of appreciating
the many blessings we do have.

In the New Year, let’s look for the good.
We may have to search
through a mass of negative media,
but the good is there,
all around us.

I wish for you a New Year filled with good,
engulfed in serenity and happiness!

New Year’s Reflection

blognyangels002
New Year’s Reflections
By Joanna Fuchs
Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.
 
Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.
 
And when I/we ponder those who do,
I/we immediately think of you.
 
Thanks for being one of the reasons I’ll/We’ll have a Happy New Year!

And All the Angels

angels-inheaven1

I am part Scottish so this works out great for the season lol…

And All the Angels
~ From an Old Scottish Carol

And all the angels in heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
And all the angels in heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Bells on Christmas Day

Bells on Christmas Day
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was filled with sorrow at the tragic death of his wife in a fire in 1861. The Civil War broke out the same year, and it seemed this was an additional punishment. Two years later, Longfellow was again saddened to learn that his own son had been seriously wounded in the Army of the Potomac.

Sitting down to his desk, one Christmas Day, he heard the church bells ringing. It was in this setting that Longfellow wrote these lines:

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep.
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep!
The wrong shall fail,
The right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men!”

— Pulpit Helps, 12-92, p. 23
