Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great.

    Just dropping in to see how you are today Karen! Here's a belated Valentine:

    The ship of your life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of your existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, maintain an attitude of gratitude... an attitude of LOVE. Love has no desire but to fulfill itself... and this begins with love of SELF as God's best creation. This love's desire is to melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. A woman in harmony with her spirit within this love is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretence and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself. Self-love in God recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away... make this day breathless as you drown yourself in the love that issues from God through YOU... for yourself, and for others. Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer, and wake at dawn with a winged heart, giving thanks for another day of loving.
    - Adapted from the words of KAHLIL GIBRAN & MAYA ANGELOU -

    ...and thank you, Karen, especially for visiting my page, reading my blog, and for leaving behind some 'SPARK' love. I appreciated it more than you know. It's been a rough couple of months trying to 'get over' my concussion (see LIFEstyle blog entry for details - not done with this yet), and I've been feeling really low this past week. Your appearance on my page gives me what I need to keep my spirits up, and my determination revving. I feel truly blessed in being able to share this journey with you. THANK YOU!

    May today be all you need it to be. May the peace of God and the freshness of the Holy Spirit rest in your thoughts, rule in your dreams tonight, and conquer all your fears. May God manifest himself today in ways you have never experienced. May your joys be fulfilled, your dreams be closer, and your prayers be answered. I pray that faith enters a new height for you; I pray that your territory is enlarged.

    MAY GOD ABUNDANTLY BLESS YOU, and those you love, in every way that you require. May he hold you gently in the palm of his hand in a very personal way, and may you rest in the fullness of his love, his grace, his strength, his wisdom, his rescue, his redemption, his healing, his inspiration, his restoration and his mercy as you require it! May you carry in your heart always an extra special awareness of God's great love for you, may you feel his sweet and gentle touch upon your life, and may you see his miracles all around you. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen!

    Hi Karen. I am from cold Ottawa, Ont. I've been through Saskatchewan by bus and train to get out west several times. You also get really cold temps in the winter. I see the light at the end of the tunnel though. It's starting to warm up. Best of Luck on Sparks and with your goals. Jen
