There are no “mistakes,” “accidents” or “coincidences” in life…everything happens for a reason and at precisely the “right” moment, although we may think or feel otherwise. Every person that we encounter on our experiential path is a blessing placed before us to enrich or enhance our experience of life, often in ways unbeknownst to us. It is all part of the “Grand Design.” We are the tools or instruments of design, but we are not the architects. There is but one architect, we are entrusted to follow His blueprint, without question. But that does not mean we have no influence on the process; on the contrary, we determine the quality of God’s creation with our choices. Our effort, motivation and intention provide insurance of our resilience, as we will weather the toughest of storms while maintaining our integrity, solid structure and inner beauty. Regardless of how much superficial damage we endure, WE ENDURE! WE SURVIVE! And so do our memories. So LIVE, LOVE and LAUGH–because this is it baby! The stage has been set, and you are up now for your 15 minutes of fame. Play it for all it’s worth!
