“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, that we may apply wisdom to our hearts.” Psalm 90:12 (NLT)
How many went to look for that old favorite bathing suit or shorts (well maybe next weekend with all this rain) only to find disappointment. It doesn’t fit any more, but we tried it on anyway and maybe you even dared to wear it! If your 50, 60, 70’s, why try to look 20 or 30 years old?
Part of life is about getting old and with age comes real beauty and wisdom. I’m on the tail end of the ‘boomer generation’ and have despised it for years, but have learned to accept it because this is where God planted me in my generation. The selfish, rugged individualistic, the drug culture, and even the rebel generation, the me generation, etc. still screams for attention, only now it is politics. (I dont speak for everyone but the majority). I am grateful for those who have fought for our freedom and the troops currently in the trenches.
Offering our younger generation a future and hope by mentoring with integrity is very important. Yes, even more important than the ‘economy’. I would rather look in the mirror knowing I did the right thing than boast about all the material things I possess. I am always reminded that you can’t pull a Uhaul behind a hearse! So why not teach somebody how to fish rather than give them a fish for the day? Let’s just be ourselves and accept who we are whether we can fit into that ole’ bathing suit or not.
Enjoy your weekend friends and pray for America. Remember those who fought for our freedoms. Thank a 🇺🇸 Veteran
Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region.
The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey.
Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own.
My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’.
God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth.
I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others.
There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more
I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more
I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better!
“But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
