Mistakes I Have Made…

Mistakes I Have Made…

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9-26-2012

Mistakes I have made are many…

Yet, every time I make a mistake

You always swoop in and save me from myself

No problem is too complicated for you to resolve

If only I would learn to trust you more

 and allow you to help me more

Your promises are always kept

I need to remember to not be afraid to ask for help

You promise to rescue me and fight for me

You tell me to remain calm in the midst of the storm

Mistakes I have made are many…

Yet through all my trials you have always been there

Patiently waiting for me and always willing to forgive

Heal my heart of any pride and stubbornness

Thank you for your consistent mercy and grace in times

When my mistakes were many

Only You…

Only You…

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9-16-2012

Only you…

Can change the unchangeable

Provide a means to an end

Provide opportunities I only dreamed of

Only you…

Can see the real me

The one you created so long ago

A woman ready to serve

Only you…

Know what I am truly capable of

You have been my counselor, mentor and teacher

My abilities are perfect for your work

Only you…

Can equip me for the next chapter

Preparing me for adventures yet seen

Spreading love, offering hope and embracing kindness to all

Only you…

10 Reasons Why Kindness Matters

‘Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear, and the blind can see.’ Mark Twain

At the bottom right hand corner of my blog I have placed a form which asks‘What should we write about next?’

So on January 7th at 7.11pm one of my readers entered the following: ‘Kindness matters. What would life look like without kindness?’

So with that idea presented I have gifted you with the following rendition.


And to that person who took the time to write – THANK-YOU!

So Now For 10 Matters Of Kindness Where Kindness Matters

  1. Kindness matters because as a group of humans we have been called man-kind.
  2. Kindness matters because forgiveness liberates not only the forgiven, but also the forgiver.
  3. Kindness matters because warm-hearted people clothe humanity in garments that protect them from catching frostbite – and coldness has a nasty bite.
  4. Kindness matters because smiles a mile wide broaden our horizon and lengthen the cords of strong relationships.
  5. Kindness matters because consideration and the art of considering others first, does as much for the consider-er than the considered – considerably.
  6. Kindness matters because to be humane is to add an ‘e’ to the end of human – and that ‘e’ stands for exceptional.
  7. Kindness matters because sympathetic people are not pathetic. They are simply standing alongside another who has suffered until they are strong enough to once again stand on their own two feet.
  8. Kindness matters because kind acts are the acts of a king and a queen who realize that they have been born for a royal purpose here upon earth – and that is to serve.
  9. Kindness matters because to be unkind is to be less than human. In fact to be unkind is devilish and subnormal.
  10. Kindness matters because to exemplify charitable behavior is to share what you have with another. And in sharing you have opened up the floodgates of heaven which will pour out rich blessings on the one whose generosity has shone.

Can you think of other reasons why kindness matters?
