Recy, a friend I adore, a friend I admire! She's a childhood friend of mine. She's been my friend for several decades now.
Mornings with Recy are great mornings. She greets me with the following messages sent through texts. And I want to share them with you:
"Sometimes, life can be much the SAME way...one minute we think we are on the RIGHT path and suddenly the path is filled with OBSTACLES...when we become CONFUSED, remember, we can ask GOD for DIRECTIONS"...
"Live with no excuses and Love with no regrets. When Life gives you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile."
"Because YOU are SPECIAL. . . and wonderful, I pray that you be encircled by GOD's LOVE and care, today and always, God bless!"
"Every time I begin to feel that there isn't enough strength left in me, I end up knowing that there's more in Him. God sustains us."
"Sometimes in life, you really have to decide whether you're half full or half empty. It may appear the same, but it doesn't feel the same."
"God set a place for us in His heart, not in this world. Because the world is temporary. . . but in God's heart, we are special and blessed forever."
"We may regret many things in life, but we'll never regret being too kind or too fair. Care. . . Share. . . Forgive. . . and life will be brighter and happier! Happy Life! Happy Morning!"
"Enjoy life no matter how hard it may seem! When life gives you a thousand reasons to cry . . . show the world that you have a million reasons to SMILE!"
"Good friends care for each other, Close friends understand each other, True friends stay forever. . . beyond words. . . beyond time . . . beyond distance. . ."
"Let the blessings of God flow in your life like springs of living water or rivers that never run dry. God cares for you, today, tomorrow and forever."
"The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently, but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life, knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live."
"When the world pushes you down to your knees. . . then you are in the best position to pray."
"Life forms us. . . . sin deforms us . . . church informs us . . . but only God transforms us! Be safe, allow Him to make a better you!"
"Walls of worry surround us everyday and though we try, we could never run away. But remember that walls only block the sides, never the sky, so look up and leave your worries to God."
"In life, there are lots of negative people watching your next move, desperately waiting for us to fail, and worst even praying for us to give up. Just don't mind them. Let them egg. It just doubles the fun of living and surviving. Let's keep in mind that failures and problems are not something we should be scared of. . . they could even lead to breakthroughs and great discoveries. Keep that head up! Continue doing God's will, because as long as He is with you, it's all that really matters!"
"Remember that you are worth not for who you are, but for what others have become because of you."
"God hears what is not spoken and understands what is not explained . . . for His LOVE doesn't work in the lips nor in the mind. . . but in the heart!"
"The more God gives you, the more responsible He expects you to be!"
To you, my beloved Recy, thank you so much for your morning messages. I love you and because of you, I try to become a better person, too.
