Lies are like a DIRTY DIAPER.

Why do people lie, and what is the result? People lie because they are VERY insecure, and their intention is at best to buoy themselves up or to pull others that they feel inferior to down. The base emotion is most likely FEAR.  Afraid of looking inferior or loss of something or someone they value.  Often they feel they are unsuccessful, or haven’t had enough love, praise, etc. They feel the only way to break through is to bring others down. In the end no one wins, least of all the liar. The liar gets the bad karma, the victim just gets ANNOYED. What’s the point? There is no good to be gained from ANY LIE!

Once a liar starts the lie, there is small chance that they will be able to turn it around. When one’s life, then becomes a web of lies it will occur not only now in this life, but the habit remains as a part of one’s eternal soul. Lies are wrong speech, meant to do harm and benefit only oneself. A liar can never be trusted until they purify or truly change.

Of course the bottom line is intention and compassion. If one lies continually there is no compassion. The intention is to harm others and distort or destroy truth. Lies can be debilitating. One develops a habit they cannot break and it eventually destroys them, ruins life after life and all wholesome potential for happiness. A liar does not have peace.  They cannot attain peace or blessing until the very habit is broken and repented from.

The saddest thing about lying is that one eventually believes their own con, and then lifelong confusion results, a broken personality that lives in their own glass house, locked in a sea of relentless sickness, tragedy and drama.  The more they lie the sicker they get. All to boost their own weak ego!!!

The jail house of their own making is all-pervasive. There is no love, no freedom, no comfort or happiness because the liar has only lied. That terrible weight will be theirs to bear alone. But there are no winners. That is because a seed rotten to the core is incapable of bearing ANY good fruit. And because we are all one in nature, everyone gets hurt. What a ridiculous way to live this short life. How senseless to live in one’s own pile of lies. Like a baby condemned to live in its filthy diaper, no hope for change, and the pain never ends. So unnecessary when we have such great capacity! I choose love, life, a wholesome mind, pure speech, forgiveness and peace! And I wish you the same………..LIAR (and you know who you are).

Liars lie – and can not be trusted by anyone.  Anyone who trusts a liar is either a liar themselves or a FOOL!!

“I have a higher and grander standard of principle than George Washington. He could not lie; I can, but I won’t.”
― Mark Twain

Finally………Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. (Psalm 34:12-13)  I will live by this one!!

PS……..Thank you God for delivering me from the previous drama and pain that I called  a life.  Your plans are sooooooooo much better!!

HELP Keri and her young family have a Merry Christmas!!

This is a follow up to a previous post and a plea.  My friend Keri and cancer patient has been in MD Anderson in TX since this fall.  She has undergone major surgery and more treatments.  She will be home on the 13th.

I am collecting money to help this beautiful gal and her young children (who have been separated from their MOM quite a bit).  They are in need of winter clothing for the kids.

Jillian is 9 (size 10) and Jake is 6 (and a size 7).  If you want to donate new clothing instead….that is fine too.

I will be shopping this next week and delivering the gifts at the end of next week.  Please donate if you are able.  Thanks to my SCCC breast cancer support group, I have collected over $100 so far!!  I think if I could collect approx $400, I could do a great job in blessing this family.  I would like to include a few toys as well (these kids need some FUN!!)  Help if you can!!  No amount is too small.  God Bless and Merry Christmas Y’all!!

This is my previous post and Keri’s story:https://cancercuredmylife.wordpress.com/2011/10/01/help-my-friend-keri/

Love-

Dawn

Most dogs are more loyal than some people……..read

Lucky Dog….

Anyone who has pets will really like this. You’ll like it even if you don’t and you may even decide you need one!

Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named ‘Lucky.’ Lucky was a real character. Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably, someone would forget and something would come up missing. Mary or Jim would go to Lucky’s toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky’s other favorite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.

It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this disease……in fact; she was just sure it was fatal.

She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders. The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought struck her….what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old dog liked Jim, he was Mary’s dog through and through. If I die, Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won’t understand that I didn’t want to leave him! The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own death.

The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated and Mary was hospitalized for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and miserable.

Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn’t even make it up the steps to her bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap..

Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn’t come to her when she called. It made Mary sad, but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed. When Mary woke for a second she couldn’t understand what was wrong. She couldn’t move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon gave way to laughter when Mary realized the problem. She was covered, literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned! While she had slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement bringing his beloved mistress all his favorite things in life.

He had covered her with his love.

Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again, walking further and further together every day. It’s been 12 years now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky, he still steals treasures and stashes them in his toy box, but Mary remains his greatest treasure.

Remember…..live every day to the fullest. Each minute is a blessing from God. And never forget….the people who make a difference in our lives are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care for us.

If you see someone without a smile today give them one of yours! Live simply.. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God .

Tis the season………for sensitivity.

A REMINDER:

In this season of joy and celebration, it is easy to forget that not all are experiencing comfort & joy. There are the obvious who have fallen on hard times and lost their jobs and have no means to celebrate. Help them!!

There are those who are experiencing their first holiday season without their wife, mother, brother, son or lover etc……..Love & support them with prayer.

There are those who are in the grips of pain or illness or depression…..visit and love them. They do not need your presents (although a gift can be nice), they need your presence.

And if you are celebrating Christmas this year with a job, money in the bank, a car in the driveway, food in the refrigerator etc. Think of how you can extend yourself towards someone who is not experiencing the abundance that you are. It just may save a life or make one…….you just don’t know.

At all times and in all ways be THANKFUL…….God is near!!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge him,
And he will direct your path.”
(Proverbs 3:5-6)
