New destinies

It's a wonder how we spend so much time preparing and planning for what we think our future might hold,and yet, just within a few hours it could totally change to our pleasant surprise.
We get a 360 and with that spin comes along the most unexpected change off course in our journey. Sometimes that change will bring about challenges and diversions or just simply beautiful moments, creating a new destiny that was really mapped out just for you.... A destiny that opens your heart to accepting new ventures in life, which only you can allow to happen.
 Pretty much like love, when it's totally unexpected and when you're not looking.

And it might be part of a grander plan, looking back someday only to realise why your plan was not meant to be.

11) For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12)Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13) You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
~ Jeremiah 29 : 11 – 13 NIV

                                           YOU are the driver of your destiny!

The fight

Tough times dont last, TOUGH PEOPLE DO!
Ain't that just the truth!
There are so many people that go through challenging periods of their life. We all have someone close and dear to us that we have seen win and lose their battle to cancer.
It's a journey that needs all the love and support to get through everyday, every minute. You will be surprised how instrumental you can be in making their tough time lighter and easier to get through.
A prayer, a smile, a laugh, and little moments out of love could make the biggest change in their lives. To brighten up someone's day can help take away the pain and the mundane feeling that 'it's another day of this'.
If you know someone fighting through this, let them know they have your support. It's a path down life where the love you carry and share is simply a given, and unconditional. Be the strength and courage and the positive energy they need to get through the day.

When you're facing death in life, life everyday is borrowed time.

You can help! There are events that you can support, or simply donate.

Your kindness can save lives!

Timeless Romantic Classics...

~An Affair to remember~


~You've Got Mail~

~Meet Joe Black~

Quote taken from here

                                      For my love...


Be nice
Think happy thoughts
Champion Silver linings
Love all things (not just cute things like babies and kittens)
When you do love - love like they do in power ballads
(you know like on a cliff with the wind in your hair; your eyes shut. Knowing you'll never know another love like this)
Watch out for dogpoo
Smile at people-even grumpy ones
Be nice (oh I already said that)
Remember that anything is possible ; whatever you do
always try to
Look on
the bright side

life's simplicity

It's the rare captivating moments of life that we sometimes just simply oversee, and let it pass us by.
A moment when you can actually create an impact on somone's life without really realising it until something incredible happens.

A glance, a smile, the acts of sincerity, humbleness from the heart, the little things that we take for granted from people, they're but the simple things in life that are presented to us in it's most natural form, out of kindness and love, and it's so easy to be blind to it because of our expectations that we have in life.

Sometimes we're always expecting so much more from our friendships or relationships, not realising how blessed we actually are to have the most priceless moments that already exist....memories and moments that time can never replace. Indelible moments, that become treasures of the heart.

To have little is to possess.
To have plenty is to be perplexed.

                                                       ~Lao Tzu~                                                                  



Don't let those moments pass you's the kind of certainty that comes but once in a lifetime.

Someone's praying for you!

A few days ago I received a call from a very close and dear family friend. At the onset he said "Lisa, you are in my daily prayers". I was extremely touched to say the least. The thought that someone had me in their prayers everyday, meant I was being thought of everyday, touched my heart. Words could not express how greatful and blessed I felt of such a thoughtful, selfless and sincere act.

It made me realise that so often we keep family and friends in our daily prayers and thoughts without them actually realising it. How wonderful to know, and even more of a blessing when you tell them that you prayed for them today, through all the trials and tribuations!

HAVE A BLESSED DAY, and remember someone in your daily prayers!!
