Today’s Wisdom Key

Don’t get used to mediocrity. You are more valuable and more capable than you think. Think better thoughts, dream bigger dreams and you may be surprised at how far from mediocre you truly are.

Today’s Wisdom Key

No one on earth is promised tomorrow. Live today as stress-free and drama-free as possible. Strive to fill each day with peace and love with all sincerity. When you’ve arrived at the end of the road, you’ll see that nothing else really matters. Hopefully in life you would have given much good, so that in death only good will come to you.

Today’s Wisdom Key

Unfortunately, many people live their lives trying to be someone else. What they don’t understand is that every person is a truly unique individual. In other words: You are uniquely you. If God wanted you to be just like others, He would have made robots instead of human beings. Embrace who you are as a special individual who has something to offer this world that no one else quite has. You can aspire to do good and excel as others have, but recognize also the goodness and talents within yourself. Use what you have been given to follow your own destiny and purpose in life that others can someday admire. Your purpose in life bears your name only. It is uniquely yours just as you are uniquely you.

Recent review for ‘Revenge of Cornelius’ – Book 2 in the Cornelius saga

Revenge of Cornelius is a spin-off from the popular spine-tingling tale, Cornelius – recent #1 best-seller in Amazon’s Teen & Young adult Multi-generational Family Fiction category.

Recent review:

  March 19, 2016

“I really enjoyed this second story, old and new characters getting another taste of Cornelius and his rotten ways. I loved the fact that we get an older version of the family I fell in love with the first time around. Even sweeter than before and just as heartbreaking at times. Good, quick entertaining read for the young and not so young.”

 

Excerpt:

The yard had a sickening silence around it—one that she had felt inside the house many times, especially at night. There was a light mist in the air as well, which was hugely unusual for that time of day. Then approximately, seventy-five feet near the edge of the property that led into an area of land densely populated by fruit-bearing trees and overgrown brush, she saw Theo advancing.

His white shirt was muddied with dirt and his short, black pants were darted with tiny prickles. He was sweating profusely.

“Where have you been?” Andrea asked curiously. “And where’s Rosie?”

The closer he got to her, Andrea could see that the pupils of his eyes had an abnormally darker hue and the expression on his face was blank and unreadable.

“I saw her walk through the family room and out onto the deck,” he started. “I thought she was just going to sit outside, but after a while I noticed she never came back in. That’s when I went to look for her.”

Andrea was listening intently and watching the mannerism that didn’t appear to belong to her husband.

“I didn’t say anything to you because I thought I’d find her playing in the yard. After I didn’t see her, I went further off into the property to look for her, but I have no idea where she went.” He shrugged.

“My God! This can’t be happening!” Andrea exclaimed, worrying less about Theo’s odd behavior and more about the child’s sudden disappearance. “We have to find her!”

 A grandfather’s love for his grandchild is put to the ultimate test.

Overview

Mira Cullen is all grown up now and has left the confines of her ever-so-haunted childhood home. She and brother, Wade, have moved away to pursue their passions, but life for Mira has turned out quite differently from that of her brother.

The only thing is…there are new residents now, but not the kind she would have ever expected to see.

Her six-year-old daughter, Rosie has an incredible bond with her grandfather, but no one ever dreams that the little girl has a special gift just like her mother and will be the bait an angry ghost uses to settle a score long overdue. She is in terrible danger, but no one knows it and the love of her grandfather will be tested to the highest extreme.

Today’s Wisdom Key

It’s much easier to give up than to press on. But how easy would it be to live with yourself not knowing what you might have achieved if you didn’t take the easy way out? During the struggle along the rugged journey of life, the best motivation is to keep your eyes on the prize.

Today’s Wisdom Key

Some people’s lives never improved because their attitude never has. Your attitude can work for you or against you in this world. You do have the ability to become your own worst enemy.

Today’s Wisdom Key

While you’re busy treating others carelessly or maliciously, particularly the ones you’re supposed to care for and love, just keep this one thing in mind: Even if there comes a time when they actually forgive you, you may be left with only a “shell” of a relationship – if any at all. Forgiveness may be found in the human heart, but the memory of the treatment still lingers to some degree in the mind. A wise person knows this and is careful to conduct himself accordingly.
