Older but better, not bitter!

(From my message this past SONday.) I am getting older and so are you. But I have determined to get sweeter and kinder, not cranky and bitter. As we age, we tend to get “set” in our ways. That’s why it’s so vitally important to keep a sense of humor, keep laughing and smiling and sharing hope and love. Too many cranky/miserable seniors give aging a bad name! Keep smiling and laughing  and you will end up with your wrinkles in all the right places! Be serious about the important things, but extremely light-hearted about everything else. Experience is valuable, so keep on learning. Now, I am only 51, so I am not even middle aged yet! But I will be old eventually, so you are welcome to hold me to my promise to never be that ‘cranky old guy’. I am learning from some wonderful old folks I know that you can be in your 80’s and 90’s and be cool, calm, collected and a JOY to hang out with! Stay SWEET! ”  -Myles Holmes-

“A mother’s heart is the most amazing substance on the planet. It is so very soft, warm and cuddly, perfectly designed for snuggling and comforting all manner of hurts and wounds real or imagined. Yet it is as tough as rawhide, as strong as steel! It can be broken and shattered, treated with fiery hot anger or cold bitterness, yet still retain its loving embrace.  It can be forgotten and neglected, and still reach out with care. There is nothing on earth that can compare to a mother’s love. But there is a Father in  Heaven who is just like that! Thanks Mom, for showing us what the Love of GOD is like. You deserve more than flowers or cards. You gave us life! XO”  -Myles Holmes-

An Ol’ Dog & New Tricks!

“You’ve heard it said, “You can’t teach an ol’ dog new tricks!” People who say that or believe it are barkin’ up the wrong tree, because that is a LIE on several levels. You certainly CAN teach an ol’ dog new tricks… it just takes a bit more patience and a few extra Bacon Strips! But more importantly, YOU my friend are NOT a dog! You are a Child of GOD, made in His Image, with Creativity, Innovation, Energy & Imagination! You may be older, but that just means you are Wiser, Stronger and more Courageous! Keep on Learning, Growing and Changing! there is a whole world waiting for your STORY! ”     Pastor Myles Holmes
