欢迎, Welkom, Bienvenue, Добро пожаловать, Willkommen, Recepción...Welcome to our exploration of education, technology and life in general! I invite you to regroup and recharge as we prepare to face each day. We cannot go back, what's done is done. Let's walk in the revelation that what is to come is better than what's been. I hope and pray that you glean jewels to ponder or take the opportunity to relieve stress by venting...

Tolerating and appreciating diversity...

Sometimes in this wonderful world, we need to remember that God did not make us all alike for a reason. It takes many different personalities, ethnicities, physical make-ups, etc. to make this world go around...I am glad God made you just like you are!

"BECAUSE" by TD Jakes

Just because no one has been fortunate enough to

realize what a gold mine you are,

Doesn't mean you shine any less.

Just because no one has been smart enough to figure out

that you can't be topped,

Doesn't stop you from being the best.

Just because no one has come along to share your life,

Doesn't mean that day isn't coming.

Just because no one has made this race worthwhile,

Doesn't give you permission to stop running.

Just because no one has realized how much of an

awesome woman you are,

Doesn't mean they can affect your femininity.

Just because no one has shown up who can love you on

your level, Doesn't mean you have to sink to theirs.

Just because you deserve the very best there is,

Doesn't mean that life is always fair.

Just because God is still preparing your king,

Doesn't mean that you're not already a Queen.

Just because your situation doesn't seem to be progressing

right now, Doesn't mean you need to change a thing.

Keep shining, keep running, Keep hoping, and keep praying,

Keep being exactly what you are already

Have a blessed and safe weekend!

I wish we could all remember those words. Now we'll have them where we can easily find them when we really need them!
Wishing you a great weekend as well.

I hope I can remember where this song is when I need it for my daughter. She is an 11 year old special needs child and I am always telling her how absolutely wonderful God made her...even if others can't see it or don't take the time to see it. T.D. Jakes gets it right and didn't miss it with this either. Thanks for sharing! Happy weekend to you!
