Always thank the heavenly Father


3 Comments

It’s crazy how all of us are here on this Earth alive. Woke up and was able to hear our alarm ring. The first thing that we do is wake up cut the television on to sports center, the news or cartoons for the little ones. We jump on our phone or computer and start checking emails, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. But if a poll was to be taken NONE of us asked to be hear on this Earth. NONE of us asked to be born. So why wake up with a attitude of another day another dollar. Why wake up mad at the world because it’s Monday one of the most dreaded days of the week. Why wake up with this mindset that the world owe you something for waking up another day.

Start waking up with a mindset of you should be glad and joyful because you have been given breath in your body that isn’t yours it’s the Lord’s. You could be flapping around on the floor like a fish without water. You have been blessed to hear the alarm ring because the most high couldn’t have spoke to your spirit and said wake up. Why use your limbs for destruction and chaotic purposes. Because you could wake paralyzed from the neck down or waste down.

The most important thing that the Heavenly Father has given us that we show no gratitude for is our LIFE. Yeah we didn’t ask to be born or have those particular parents and family members. No we didn’t ask to be placed on this Earth and endure all of this foolishness that takes place day and night. However, we are here. So let’s make the most of it and be grateful and thankful for it. So here’s to it. Thank you Heavenly Father.

So peace

Bio: A simple person who loves to express different feelings and thoughts in writing, I write since childhood but I wouldn’t call myself a “writer”. Passionate and honest, I write mainly in classical Arabic and Lebanese Arabic as well (my mother language) but love to write in English as much as I can even though French is my second language. I have a law degree but working in a totally different field. I’m a founder member of Amnesty International groups in Lebanon and remained a member for almost 6 years. (More in her about section.

Also I love me some chicken Shawarma it’s da bomb.

Questions fromHuguette: (Better to say I pass than to answer half or fake answer)

  1. Brunei’s anti-gay law went into effect this week, anyone found guilty with adultery and homosexual sex will be stoned to death ! I know you are against not the question. If your kid now or in the future, if you ever had kids, confessed to you that they are gay. What would you do? How would you react? I don’t know I’ll probably punch them in the face and lie and say that there was a gnat on their face. Honestly, I would be surprised because their dad loves his Mama’s. But obviously I would ask questions get to the root of this. I would love them. That’s my seed but I ain’t having it. If I never prayed hard before to the most high. I’mma pull a Jesus move, blood will be running out of the pores of my skin.
  2. What’s your major (if student) or profession? I have a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Psychology and a minor in Family and Child Studies
  3. Why you started blogging? I started a blog for more income. I don’t like working a 9 to 5. I’m my own boss. However, fisherofmen is a blog to help the hopeless. To remind them that everyday you wake is a opportunity to change and evolve. Your yesterday don’t have to dictate your tomorrow. Where there’s mercy there’s grace. You are not forgotten about we care and got you. Fisherofmen is about pulling the next man up. What wisdom and knowledge that you have received turn around and help the next man. If a man hunger show where the bread is. If a man is thirsty show him where he can get water.
  4. Describe one awkward moment happened to you and you were really embarrassed? 1st grade I had to pee bad and I asked the teacher could I go to the bathroom. She turned me down and told me to stay quiet. I was on the floor and the part that I was sitting on had a tile in the floor missing. So my body said screw it. She said stay put. She never said that you couldn’t release your fluids. So I urinated on myself and if filled the missing space in the floor and a girl said out loud. You pee-pee on yourself. I was released, embarrassed and soaked. Hahaa, now that I look back on it. It’s funny but at the time naw that was messed up.
  5. You are a decision maker in your country and have the ultimate power, name the first decision you will take without any hesitation. Universal health care and free education.
  6. Tom or Jerry? Jerry all day baby. Ain’t nobody getting me. I don’t like to be got.

Gratitude


1 Comment

Be thankful in good times and bad times. Be appreciative in happy times and sad times. Be grateful in times of earning and in times where things have been given freely. Thankfulness should not be just displayed when something grand happens (winning $450 mill from the lotto). What about being thankful in times where nothing spectacular happens? Being alive, fully functional, having the activity of your limbs and waking up seeing another day so you can continue working on being a better all around individual. The simple things in life we take for granted.

Why?

Well, it certain things in our life are freely given to us. We do not have to ask, beg or work for them. However, when something that was once free is taken away. We later realize the value that it had and added to our life. Next, we become filled with regret and remorse because we did not treasure what we had. Evidently, we told ourselves that what is free would always last. Wrong, instead of being thankful, we were ungrateful.

We can’t go back to the past and rewrite our wrongs. So let us press forward in always be thankful for things both given and earned. Remember the simple things in life that are given to us WE DID NOT WORK FOR THEM. Nine times out of ten it’s favor, God just blesses us like that. We do not know what it takes to build, attain, maintain and obtain.

So let us all do a better job not complaining for more and what we do not have. Let us appreciate what we do have. Let us discard the attitude of “it will last forever.” Let us be thankful and not ungrateful. Let us not wait for the simple things in life to be taken from us to appreciate and realize it’s value. Let us show gratitude for everything that we have . Let us be thankful and appreciate for the little that we have, because a little is better than nothing.

Love y’all

Be blessed and stay encouraged
