“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”

John F. Kennedy

 

It’s nice to have courage and to work hard – but without purpose and direction, those efforts may be in vain.  There was something said in the 1980 remake of “The Jazz Singer — “how do you know where you are going if you do not know where you came from?”  that I think runs along the same vein.  It’s nice to “play things by ear”, but even better if you know what direction you’re playing into.  🙂

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!

  1. Even better when you know the One with the ability to lead and direct and know what path we should take, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16
