A Poem to Enjoy

Do you like poems? Well, I do and here is one of my favorites. It Couldn’t Be Done Somebody said that it couldn’t be done, But he with a chuckle replied That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn’t be done and he did it. Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that; At least no one ever has done it”; But he took off his coat and he took off his hat, And the first thing we knew he’d begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn’t be done and he did it. There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure; There are thousands to point out to you, one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; J

The Emptiness of Worldly Things

Hello, everyone that reads this! I hope you enjoy reading my blog and are blessed. I was reading in 1Samuel this morning and came across these verses. 1Samuel 12:20-22,24 ...But serve the Lord with all your heart. And do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing. For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name's sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people....Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. So you see, if you go after the things of this world then you are going after emptiness. They will not satisfy or profit you. Instead go to Jesus and love Him above all else for He is better than anything you could ever want. He is the only one that can fill your emptiness. He is the only one that can truely satisfy you. God bless you!

High Heeled Shoes? Not an Option!

Did you ever stop to think about what you are doing to your feet when you wear high-heeled shoes? Did you realize that high-heeled shoes can cause a lot of problems to your feet? Well they can and now let me tell you why. First of all they cause your foot to be forced into an unnatural position. It causes your toes to be crammed either by forcing them together from the sides or forcing them in. Having your toes forced into these positions can cause problems such as bunions, hammer toes, neuromas etc. All these problems and more are generally pretty painful and permanent unless you have surgery on them. Wearing high heels also causes the Achilles tendon to shorten which can cause problems when you wear flat shoes. Wearing high-heels not only causes problems with your feet, but also with your lower back. It forces your back into a position that can crush your vertebrae. Wearing high heels puts you in much more danger. You cannot balance your self as well; therefore, you are more liable t
