Growing up I was always told about how laughter is great medicine but truly didn't believe it tell last night. I was reading a friend's cousin's blog and just started laughing. Now I'm not just saying a small little laugh but a full blown belly laugh. I sat there reading and watching the videos posted on this blog laughing so hard for about 30 minutes. I couldn't help myself. My roommate came over and wanted to know what was so funny so I joined her in on the blog. So not only once did I get to enjoy the laughter but twice! I don't remember the last time I have laughed so hard, but I can tell you it was just what I have been praying for. It brought a new since of fulfillment to my life. A fresh start to the cloudy days, and a renewed love for Jesus. The joys of life came though in my laughter and now that is something I have been missing. The happiness of living and the joys that Jesus brings each one of us. So the next time a cloudy day comes I will look for Jesus showing me a little laughter!!!
God Bless the Lord

Often enough we forget about the passion we have. The passion for love, success, hopes, and dreams. We hold back on things that make are heart race because of the risk of failure. Yesterday, however I received a boast in my inspiration. I was showing an apartment to an individual who was moving to the community as a visiting professor. Along with this lady came her sponsor. This gentleman and I began to discuss my future and career path. I told him about my education so far and what I was thinking about in the near future. He however told me that I had to much passion in my heart and eyes to settle for less. That he could see the fire burning in my eyes to accomplish more then I ever dreamed of. This made me think about life and what passions God has given me. What will I do with these passions and how will I know it's what God has planned? Will I settle for being content or dreaming dreams beyond my imagination. Using it to soar beyond all expectations and desires. This passion I have I believe is the passion of faith. Of knowing that whatever I set my mind to God will provide along to journey. So I take this inspiration to heart and begin to search out side the box for a journey, a door Jesus is unlocking! What it will unlock Jesus only knows and until then I will embrace this passion and allow it to fill every corner of my heart!
