FEARS vs. DREAMS
Fear: feeling small Dream: living for something much bigger than myself …One of my favorites thus far from the TWLOHA Fears vs. Dreams collection. I relate.
I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and...– Dr. Seuss
I wonder how many people I have looked at all my life and never seen.– John Steinbeck, East Of Eden
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters,...
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.– Martin Luther King, Jr.
I just think it should probably be stated somewhere that, regarding all these posts about happiness that I’ve been writing, I’m not really talking about times where one really should be sad about something. There are times in our lives that call for sorrow and mourning (someone you love passes away, etc.), for sure. Granted, these times of mourning should also not be hyper-extended and...
This is why I love them both so much.

I received a meditation from my mom this morning, filled with several necessary reminders to keep all of that happiness stuff present in my mind like it has been for the past few days. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go back to the previous post about HAPPINESS.) The Lord knows me so well. He knows this is exactly what I need— for truth to be practically pushed in my...
That has been my focus since yesterday. It’s what’s been on my mind. Here’s the deal. Sometimes people are really disappointing. Sometimes our circumstances are really disappointing. Sometimes both are really disappointing at the same time. Let’s be honest for a glitch (I made that phrase up, use it!)… Some days life seems like a super difficult/terrible mess. Some...
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is...– Mark Twain
Smile, breathe and go slowly.– Thich Nhat Hanh
Every morning, Michel and I assess our situation and, regardless of our...– Steve Gleason
5 Year Anniversary: My Thoughts
(written by Steve Gleason on September 26, 2011) In its simplest form, football is just a game of boys. But in this game there are so many lessons that correlate to life outside the game. For me that correlation has never been stronger than it was yesterday. Sometimes in life, despite your efforts, things don’t go your way. Yesterday, we found ourselves 10 points behind after a brutal 80+ yard...

I have such a crush on Ryan Gosling, it’s not even funny… …I was going to go to bed, but then I saw that he was coming on Leno. So I made myself a bowl of ice cream and watched him instead ; ] These are the great decisions I make with all that “free time” I have in the world.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses...– T.E. Lawrence
Today has been absolutely beautiful...
…because not once have I worried about how a single thing was going to get done. I’m being completely serious, too. Not once, not one single time did I worry! I just keep doing; I just keep living; I know who is really in control of it all. And I’ll give you a hint— it’s not me ; ] Freedom feels so good, y’all. We should allow ourselves to live in it far...
There is no dishonor in losing the race. There is only dishonor in not racing...– Garth Stein
