Tenets of Life


Look to see the danger
But avoid the confusion;
Look to see the spontaneity
But beware of the action.

Look to decipher scary info
But adhere to healthy thoughts;
Look to renew the mind
But maintain a loving heart.

Strive for success
But endeavor to be genuine;
Strive for happiness
But endeavor to be kind.

Share your views
But be fair always;
Be firm in what you believe
But be open minded on issues.

Be conscious of the drift
But don't be misguided;
Be aware of the highlights of the world
But focus on the Redeemer.

Encourage positive thinking
But be aware of the negatives;
Speak to the heavens
But speak life always.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
