I do not like the idea of happiness – it is too momentary – I would say that I was always busy and interested in something – interest has more meaning to me than the idea of happiness. — Georgia O’Keeffe by lavonne

Fresh Apple Cake: if you haven't tried this delicious recipe yet, then please do. It's absolutely foolproof and tastes fantastic. I left the apple pieces a little chunky when I added them to the batter and we liked the texture of the cake that way. I thought it was a little different to add vanilla rather than cinnamon, but the cake was very flavorful and not too sweet.. The frosting reminded me of creamy fudge. Fabulous cake that cuts well and tastes like something your gran would make. by lavonne

i like the idea of making a frame (plus filled in) of pictures on the wall as a head board.  I can feel the love and happy memories from the pictures as i go to sleep :) although as my experience has taught me i would need to do something more to the pics than just tack them on the wall. by proteamundi

Do you have any idea how much money you spend on granola and/or nutritional bars for your kids? Take a minute and add it up; I would bet it's more than you think. Before you say "they're convenient", trust me, I get it. On those busy mornings when you don't have time for breakfast, there's nothing easier than tossing a bar into your child's lunch box and another one into your purse, but a majority of the brands on the market are not as healthy as their manufacturers would lead you to believe.

Wouldn't it be great if you could spend a good portion of your day doing something you thoroughly enjoy? Wouldn't you agree that the best job in the world would be one you love? One that made you excited to wake up? Me too. Do you think finding something like that is possible? I do. I don't think it's always easy to find, but I do think it's possible to find. by claudine

“I always get asked, ‘Where do you get your confidence?’ I think people are well meaning, but it’s pretty insulting. Because what it means to me is, ‘You, Mindy Kaling, have all the trappings of a very marginalized person. You’re not skinny, you’re not white, you’re a woman. Why on earth would you feel like you’re worth anything?’” by Nessa

A dear friend of mine was my trainer for a half marathon about 9 years ago..I was not a runner prior to this. After we finished the race she asked if i was ready to start running again on Monday. I kindly told her that the only running i would ever do again would be to play with my kids or if something really big was chasing me. by mstam

Pastor Jeremiah Steepek (pictured) transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning. He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service, only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food - NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit n the back. He greeted people to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him.As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation. "We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek." The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation. The homeless man sitting in the back stood up and started walking down the aisle. The clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him. He walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment then he recited, “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’'The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame. He then said, "Today I see a gathering of people, not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU decide to become disciples?" He then dismissed service until next week.Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It's something you live by and share with others. by sherri
