To The Stars...

“God's promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine” ~ David Nicholas 

Growing old is getting old
I often find myself here thinking
About the birds, the boats, and past loves that flew away or started sinking
And life sometimes gets crazy
I used to think it was all out of my control
Staying up late, debating on how I'd find mine way
I'd say it's all up in the stars....

But really it's all waiting for us..
To seize the opportunities, live in the moment...
And among the stars...

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.” ~ Og Mandino

The light is all around you, it shines during the day and lights up the night. It burns bright within you, the light is God and it is all around you. You have to capture and seize the light within you and harness the energy it brings everyday. You can accomplish so much more than what you really perceive

You may have yourself believing that you can only achieve a certain thing in life, a status, a position, a relationship, a skill, etc.  But really the stars are all in your reach and your dreams are infinite! Everyone in his or her lifetime has the possibility for a better tomorrow and brighter future, all that remains is the desire and drive to go out an obtain these dreams and reach the stars!
“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.” ~ Pamela Vaull Starr 

You must understand the moments are all around you, happening everyday. I only ask, "Can you seen them?" If so, you shouldn't think twice, reach out and go after them, pursue, dare, dream, discover the unlimited possibilities that await each one. You are wonderful the way God made you, but He wants you to take chances, fall, get up, and discover everything else that is out there awaiting for you.

"There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying."

You ever hear of chaos theory?

It's a science.
It tries to determine underlying patterns in chaotic systems: Weather, ocean currents, blood flow, that sort of thing.

Well, it turns out that there are few things......more chaotic than the beat of a human heart.

Speeding up, slowing down. A pretty face, a flight of stairs.

It's always changing depending on what's happening to us out there.

It's an erratic son of a bitch.

But underneath all of that bump-a-ta-bump mess, there is, in fact, a pattern.

A truth.
And it's love.

The most important thing about love, is that we choose to give it......and we choose to receive it.

Making it the least random act in the entire universe.

It goes beyond blood,
it goes beyond betrayal......and all the dirt that makes us human.

And if you can figure that out..... the rest of the world got nothing on you.

“To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest”

Cause we are
We are shining stars
We are invincible
We are who we are
On our darkest day
When we’re miles away
Sun will come
We will find our way home

If you're lost and alone
Or you're sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
Carry on

“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.” ~ Bill Watterson
