1st Yellow Rose from my Garden, 2017


"Rise above Yourself!"
Thomas J. Leonard
Rise!!!


As we embark on a glorious week leading to the reminder of Christ's resurrection, I remind you to RISE! We are given a choice, each and every new day, to walk or to run, to fear or to focus, to live our to die to ourselves. I ask you to Rise. Take a chance and make a choice to make a change. What do you want to work on in your life to make it better. To raise the bar. To improve your quality of life. To rise above yourself! We all know that a single choice can change your life in a heartbeat. We spend so much of our lives worrying about things that NEVER happen. What if we spent that time focusing on things that really matter.

Are you growing and exploring each new day? Are you continuing to learn and to be engaged in your life. Why are you here? What do you want to do? How will you give? It's time to make a choice to Rise to the occasion. I raised my children to realize that there are 1000 ways to live your life and God gives us free will to make those choices. So many of us live in fear to dream big and go and do what your heart desires. But I am challenging you to do just that. 

You were born for a purpose. You were given a gift. God has asked you to share that gift with the world. We need YOU. We need YOU to share YOUR gift with US. We can't live without it. We have been waiting for you to share it with us. We are ready to receive your gift. Are you ready to share it with us?! Are you growing and exploring each new day? Are you continuing to learn and to be engaged in your life. Why are you here? What do you want to do? How will you give? It's time to make a choice to Rise to the occasion. 

R: Resurrection of your new hope; your new beginning; your new life
I: Inspiration to guide you daily
S: Strength to sustain you always
E: Everlasting energy to enjoy every second you are given 


Rise up and shine, for your light has come. 
Isaiah 60:1
