WELCOME to the Sept 2004 edition of the Shalomindia.com E-Info Service.
CO1 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the
for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised
and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
and this mortal must
put on immortality.
A Lesson in Life
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens
by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments
of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your
soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or
relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to
If someone hurts you, betrays you , or breaks
you heart, forgive them. For they have helped you learn about trust and the
importance of being cautious to who you open your heart to.
If someone loves you, love them back
unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching
you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never
seen or felt without them.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment
and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able
to experience it again.
Talk to people you have never talked to before,
and actually listen. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell
yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't
believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.
You can make of your life anything you wish.
Create your own life and then go out and live it.
CO1 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
The first connection every child has is with his or her
mother. It starts in the womb, and as soon as the newborn
baby is in his or her mother's arms and on her breast, that
connection or bonding is reinforced and sealed. Sadly, the
child who doesn't have healthy bonding in those early years
is being programmed for life-long problems unless he or she
goes through a healthy recovery program. If a young child
feels no bonding at all, he/she can soon die.
Connection and bonding are essential for our entire
lifetime. We cannot live without them. As counselors tell
us, we cannot "not be bonded." Thus, if we are not bonded
in healthy ways to healthy people, we will be bonded in
unhealthy ways to unhealthy people or things. For example,
some people stay in very destructive and toxic
relationships for fear of being isolated and disconnected
from everyone. Others become bonded to their work,
gambling, drugs, alcohol, sex, material possessions and so
Healthy bonding needs to be a priority of every one of us
and should be available in every church. If you can't find
it there, find it with some open, non-judgmental, healthy
friends, or in a recovery or twelve-step group if
necessary. Healthy bonding and connection to healthy people
is essential for healthy, wholesome, and meaningful lives.
As the Bible reminds us, the company we keep affects our
WHAT LEADERS MUST DO
Learn your Past.
It's much easier to recover from mistakes and failures when you're young. Plus,
the more skilled you are at what you do, the more opportunities you will have to
grow in your career, influence other people, and pass what you've learned.
Pay the price.
There is no success without sacrifice. If you succeed without sacrifice, it's
because someone else who went before you paid the price. If you sacrifice and
don't see success, then you can be sure someone who follows behind you will reap
Develop solid relationships.
You can't have a rich life alone; the most rewarding experiences happen with
other people. Don't put so much energy into work that you have nothing left for
friends and family.
Prepare for the future.
As I often say, options are one of your most precious commodities. There are no
100-percent guarantees, of course, but making wise financial choices now when it
comes to spending, saving, and investing greatly increases the likelihood that
you will have options later in life. Find purpose for your life.
Work hard at what you like to do and
try to overcome all obstacles
Laugh at your mistakes and praise yourself for learning from them
Pick some flowers and appreciate the beauty of nature
Say hello to strangers and enjoy the people you know
Don't be afraid to show your emotions laughing and crying make you feel better
Love your friends and family with your entire being they are the most important
part of your life
Feel the calmness on a quiet sunny day
Find a rainbow and live your world of dreams always remember life is better than

myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward."
- Kurt Vonnegut

with it, and then move on."
- Bob Newhart
