Jeff lost his daddy tonight. Watching his mom with his dad has been a testimony of a true love story. God is amazing!!! Please pray peace for Jeff & his family.
Our life is a dream walking. Death is going home. God is home to us!
There is no death. Only a change of worlds.
I can't BLIEVE we lost Georgia's mom 3 weeks ago. Now Jeff's daddy.
We miss you Ann & Jim.
Don’t stress about the closed doors behind you. New doors are opening if we keep moving forward!!! AMEN!!!
Van Beethoven was told that he was hopeless as a composer and started losing his hearing in 1796 but continued to compose masterpieces!
Abraham Lincoln lost his job (1832), failed in business (1833) and was defeated in eight elections (1838 – 1858)! Thomas Edison’s teacher told him he was “too stupid to learn anything”. Also, he stated that he “discovered six thousand ways that won’t work” while developing the light bulb.
Walt Disney was fired, as his boss found he “lacked imagination”. Later, MGM studios told him that the idea of Mickey Mouse would not work; a giant mouse would scare women.
Steven Spielberg was placed in a class for learning-disabled children before he dropped out of school forever
The Beatles were turned down by their recording company telling them that “[ . . . ] guitar music is on their way out”.
Michael Jordan was cut from the high-school basketball team as he was “lacking skill”.
Their mistakes allowed them to become geniuses, inventors and idols they have become. I know how hard it is to fail, some of my failures were emotionally painful and made it even harder for me to get back up, get out of bed, to start over. Some failures hit us so hard in the stomach that we find it hard to breathe. Failure for me is like an uninvited stranger that appears out of nowhere. These failures are the hardest to recover from, to get back up. The unexpected!!! It affects your spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and financials.
We must take a deep breath, maybe 100 deep breaths, breathe again and pray we are stronger than all our yesterdays. Find the inner strength to trust God, ask for help from the right people, start over once again. This start over might be the one that gets us to our finish line. I can tell you from my personal experience. Doing nothing, giving up will get us nowhere!!! Just close those doors! New doors are opening if we keep moving forward!!! AMEN!!!

In the young mind and heart of a child, there’s a sort of “wet cement” and the impressions that are made there harden over time. Racism, in any form, is a learned trait (you never see infants or toddlers avoiding each other in the nursery because of skin tone). Whenever we categorize a group of people as a nameless, faceless mass of color (whether the color be white, brown or something else), we’re stripping away the humanity of people and committing the sin of racism and we’re teaching our kids to do the same.
Racism hurts people, but we can’t seem to get past it. We can’t seem to find ways to have honest, healthy conversations about issues of race. We can’t celebrate a sense of unified brotherhood through our beautiful differences -

The most precious jewels you'll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children.

Don't kill the dream - execute it! "The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win."
Life always offers us a second chance... It's called TOMORROW! We need to trust our soul ... It knows the way.
Never give up on you or anyone else. Fight, fight, fight! Refuse to take NO for an answer. Especially from yourself. Our inner voice will try to tell us NO WAY, WE CAN”T, WE WILL FAIL. We have to rise above our inner voice. It’s only echo’s from others in our past. Dig deep inside and find YOU, your soul that refuses to take NO for an answer.
Henry Ford: While Ford is today known for his innovative assembly line and American-made cars, he wasn't an instant success. In fact, his early businesses failed and left him broke five times before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company.
Lucille Ball: During her career, Ball had thirteen Emmy nominations and four wins, also earning the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Kennedy Center Honors. Before starring in I Love Lucy, Ball was widely regarded as a failed actress and a B movie star. Even her drama instructors didn't feel she could make it, telling her to try another profession. She, of course, proved them all wrong.
Oprah Winfrey: Most people know Oprah as one of the most iconic faces on TV as well as one of the richest and most successful women in the world. Oprah faced a hard road to get to that position, however, enduring a rough and often abusive childhood as well as numerous career setbacks including being fired from her job as a television reporter because she was "unfit for tv."
Stephen King: The first book by this author, the iconic thriller Carrie, received 30 rejections, finally causing King to give up and throw it in the trash. His wife fished it out and encouraged him to resubmit it, and the rest is history, with King now having hundreds of books published the distinction of being one of the best-selling authors of all time.
Walt Disney: Today Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney himself had a bit of a rough start. He was fired by a newspaper editor because, "he lacked imagination and had no good ideas." After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn't last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. He kept plugging along, however, and eventually found a recipe for success that worked.
I love y'all xoxo, Ruby Gettinger

When I am silent, I have thunder hidden inside. Rumi
It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you!
I love y'all,
Don't ever give up on you or anyone else! Fight to live your God given destiny!
