We the People

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But...the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?'

— Martin Luther King Jr. —

Joy and Company

To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.

— Mark Twain —

  On the flip side of that coin, misery loves company. Who are hanging out with these days? Do they bring you joy or misery? With all of that being said, there is only one thing worse than two miserable people commiserating and that is a one person commiserating with the committee in his or…

Merry Christmas!

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.

— Charles Dickens —

  Very interesting thought by Mr. Dickens.  It’s as if it is the one time of year we all get our values aligned (for the most part) with Christ’s. Go figure, after all it is His birthday. All the past week of quotes I’ve been sharing on EagleLaunch will become every day living if you…

Christmas Beauty

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

— Norman Vincent Peale —

  Hmmm… sort of the way God intended things to be on a daily basis. P.E.A.C.E. Jay@EagleLaunch.com John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

Armor

We are up against the unseen power that controls this dark world and the spiritual agents are from the very headquarters of evil. Therefore, we must wear the 'whole armor of God,' that we may be able to resist evil in its day of power, and that even when we have fought to a standstill, we may still stand our ground.

Tragedy and Hope

There is a saying in Tibetan, 'Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.' No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience it is, if we lose our hope, that's our real disaster.

— Dalai Lama XIV —

  No matter how bad it is or how bad you think it’s going to be…Hold onto Hope. P.E.A.C.E. Jay@EagleLaunch.com John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Infinite Hope

We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope.

— ML King —

  “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”  (Hebrews 11:1) It is real easy to give up on this world we are living in IF AND ONLY IF we didn’t have a Lord and Savior who gives us the ability to have infinite hope….

Hell

The best part about spending part of your life in hell is once you get out, you will do everything you can to never go back.

— JJM —

  There are other positives about going through hell: 1.  You try to help others get out. 2.  You try to prevent others from going there. 3.  You have an entirely different view on life. P.E.A.C.E. Jay@EagleLaunch.com Genesis 50:20, “You intended to harm me but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now…
