Be Proud of Your Achievements 

On December 2nd, 2022, I listened to Friday Night Live on LinkedIn. Brayan Sagray was one of the hosts. He said ‘’an individual hated him because of the letters he had next to his name.’’ The letters are DPM FACFAS. DPM means Doctors of podiatric medicine, and FACFAS means Fellows of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. 

Bryan Sagray is in San Antonio, Texas. I sent him a note saying I was proud of him for achieving the letters next to his name. Don’t have that person or anyone discourage you from attaining those letters next to your name. The individual hating on you because of those letters are a fool. You are inspiring someone with those letters next to your name. Continue to achieve great success, etc. 

If you achieve success in your personal or professional life, be proud of your achievements. As I say to Bryan and you, don’t let anyone discourage, put you down, or hate you because you achieved something they didn’t. Your achievements should be fuel for them to achieve their goals. You are inspiring someone with your success. Show off your achievements and celebrate them. Congratulations, and I am very proud of you. Continue to achieve great success. 

Feel free to connect with Bryan on LinkedIn.

My Second Favorite Bible Scripture

I have told you these things so that in me, you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33 (NIV).

In the previous blog post, I talked about my favorite Bible Scripture. In this blog post, I will talk about my second favorite Bible Scripture. The above Scripture is my second favorite because it encourages me that the words of Jesus will bring me comfort and peace. I have peace in Jesus. I don’t have to look at anyone or anywhere to find peace. Jesus offers the perfect peace that sustains me through my difficulties. I will encounter difficulties as long as I’m here in the world. I am unable to avoid it. I must deal with them. I will face various challenges, including disease, death, unemployment, natural catastrophes, tragedies, etc. I will have the courage to overcome my problems. In Jesus, I am an overcomer.

Keep Moving Forward,


My Favorite Bible Scripture

But I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.
Philippians 3: 13, NLT

This Bible Scripture above is my favorite because it encourages me to forget what happened in my past, including past mistakes, failures, memories, bad actions, wrong choices, etc. The past is past. I can’t change my past. I can’t put my focus on what happened in the past; I can’t erase it. It’s done. If I continue to focus on my past, I will miss what’s ahead of me. I am going to crash. Also, I can’t have my past distract me from moving forward. I must put it behind me. Forget about it. Also, it encourages me to look ahead, which are new opportunities, new beginnings, new relationships, new connections, etc. focusing on now, working and fulfilling my goals, and continuing to improve. Keep moving forward and looking towards the future.

My Two Favorite Bible Translations

1. The Amplified Translation

I was introduced to the amplified translation by Bible gateway. When I read a Scripture in this translation, I was like, wow, I like this. I love this translation because it’s simple to read, and I can readily grasp what the scriptures are saying; for instance, you shall love your neighbor as yourself [ that means unselfishly seeking the best or higher good for others]. Matthew 23: 39 AMP. I currently use the amplified translation in my Bible app on my phone and tablet.

2. The Message Bible Translation

I was introduced to the message translation at my former church bookstore. While reading the scriptures in this translation, I got excited because it spoke in a language I say—the everyday language. I can read and understand it easily. I have used the message translation multiple times in my Bible app on my phone and tablets. I carry the paper message Bible to church on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Both of these translations should be available in your Bible app, and you can purchase a paper Bible in these excellent translations at your local bookstore, Christian bookstore, or Amazon. Please share with me in the comments section below your favorite Bible translation and why?

The Clock of Life

(Clock, n.d).

The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power to tell just when the hands will stop at a late or early hour. Today, only is our own. So, live, love and toil with a will; place no faith in tomorrow, for the clock may be still. (Smith, n. d.).

The clock of life indicates the time in our lives. The clock of life is invisible. Only the Lord sees the clock in our lives, not us. Also, the clock of life works by the Lord, not us. The clock of life works only one time. We can’t go back and wound it up multiple times, and we don’t have the control to tell when the clock will stop at an early or late hour. Today is all we have. It’s the only thing we own. So, what do we do with today? Live, love, and work hard with great enthusiasm and energy. Enjoy it to the fullest. Don’t put faith into tomorrow because it is not guaranteed; that the clock may stop.

Keep moving forward,

Funny Editor 

Funny Editor is a website with various good, clean, and funny jokes. I found out about this website when I receive their jokes in my email. I don’t recall signing up for the jokes to be sent to my email. I looked through the jokes; I didn’t fall out laughing, but the jokes had me giggling and chuckling.

I shared the jokes with my Facebook and Twitter audience, my NSCS family, and the audience at Genuine Hearts. There were no negative comments about the jokes from the audience. On the website, you can choose from various categories to find jokes to laugh at, such as music, professional, science, holiday, political, etc. In addition, you can submit your own joke and request that the jokes be sent to your email.

Worship 24/7 

Worship 24/7 is a Christian music radio station that broadcasts twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, Christian worship music. In December of 2020, I learned about this radio station on Twitter. I enjoy listening to worship 24/7 because it allows me to begin my day with the Lord. In the mornings, I play worship 24/7.

While listening to worship 24/7, you won’t hear any commercials, no small talk. Instead, you will listen to all worship music, statements such as you were made to worship 24/7, worship is a lifestyle, etc. In addition, you will listen to various hosts sharing words of encouragement.

When you have the opportunity to listen to worship 24/7 and enjoy what you’re hearing, you may donate to worship 24/7 to help them stay on the air. You can listen to worship 24/7 on the worship 24/7 app or the website. Click on the link to learn more about worship 24/7.

Keep Moving Forward

My favorite quote is “Keep Moving Forward,” I love this quote because it motivates me to keep moving forward no matter what comes my way. Nothing or no one will be able to stop me. No matter how difficult things get, I must keep moving forward. As long I am alive, I will keep moving forward. I am getting closer to my goals as long as I keep moving forward and not let the outside noise distract me.

Tell me in the comments section below your favorite quote and why you love it so?

Keep moving forward,


Every day is a fantastic day to be above ground.

The above quotation is one of my favorites because it reminds us that we are alive and able to see each new day that the Lord has created with new mercies that he has bestowed upon us. It encourages us to savor every day of our lives. What happened to us that day? We are still alive (Every day above ground is a good day” quote, 2021). We are able to do things such as eat, love, work, pray, think, have fun, play, laugh, cry, talk, listen, cook, create, encourage, dance, etc. We also go through the ups and downs of life. Our bodies are working in excellent condition, we are in our right mind, doing for ourselves, we have the activity of our limbs and are in great health. We are enjoying the company of our families, friends, co-workers, church members, neighbors, sorority sisters, fraternity brothers, etc. All of this is part of being and feeling alive, enjoying life. But unfortunately, when we are dead, we can’t experience any of this. As we continue to live life on this earth, we ought to be thankful to still be above ground because numerous people did not get the opportunity to be above ground, but we do; that is something to praise God about. Every day is a fantastic day; to be above ground is a blessing for us, and we shouldn’t take it for granted.

I hope this blog post encourages you to appreciate that you are alive.

Keep moving forward,

The bridge of life. 

Main Street Bridge, Jacksonville, FL - Buy Photo Print
(Main Street bridge, 2021)

Great afternoon: I hope you are all doing fantastic this afternoon.

Don’t burn the bridge of life because you don’t know who you’ll need to cross over to. There will be dark periods in our lives when the bridge of life must remain intact for someone to cross over and be a shining light for us. This is why keeping the bridge of life intact and connected is so important.

Two things that you can do to keep the bridge of life intact.

  1. Stop holding grudges.

It is not acceptable to hold grudges. Stop carrying grudges because it will give you peace of mind and move on from the circumstance. The less you retain grudges, the more you will be able to keep the bridge of life together. So let go of that resentment; it’s not worth holding on to it.

2. Keep a kind and respectful attitude.

Maintain a kind and respectful attitude toward everyone, including your family and friends. Even if they do not show the same attitude back to you, the more you have this particular attitude, the longer the bridge will last.

For your own sake, keep the bridge of life intact.

Keep moving forward,
