    Thank you..... For this section, my eyes are full of tears as I write this. My heart has always been working with addicts and alcoholics. God has blessed me recently to move up in this area of my life and you are soooooo right, it is moving faster than me. I am at the business end of the overseeing others who provide direct care to clients. I know, to whom much is given, much is required so I am working non-stop. Sometimes it is so lonely. But to hear you and to see all you do. To see when you are faithful over a few things God will makes you ruler over many. Continue to keep it real and reminding us that God has so much for us. I too want to do all God has for me before I am put in a box! Thanks again!

    I've not worked a full-time job outside my home since 1996 ... but I've never stopped working! I came off my paying job to raise my own children, one of whom passed away at the age of 7. I was with him, and my other children every step of the way. During the years at home I also faced many other challenges - open heart surgery for one - at the age of 38. I didn't see any of this coming. While you are young and have your health and strength, I agree wholeheartedly with Tyler that you should work while it is day. I also figured out in the time that I've been at home what a true blessing motherhood is, how to pray, and get busy helping others. I believe this "down time" for me has been a time of great maturation and humility. I want to know when it's all said and done, that I've lived a life of purpose, service, and great love shown to and for others. If money comes with that... that'll be the icing on the cake!

    Thank you... I am in bondage beyond anything that you would believe...I feel like giving up sometimes, and I see no relief in sight...But I am encouraged...that this is another day that the Lord has given me, and I will Work...Work...Work... It is still day....and the F** Lady (whoever that is) has not sung!!!!

    So true what you speak of. So glad I heard you say this word - hard. Althought I don't find work hard. I find that work is actually my play. I have a business opportunity with LegalShield and absolutely love every moment of it. Contact me anyone who is looking for a business opportunity. For me, I have found a niche that will last me a lifetime. Mr. Tyler, thank you for your insight. This is the second time visiting your website. My first time finding these wonderful inspirational messages. Thank you. Check me out on wwwyoutube.com/user/vivianlsharp

    Good Afternoon, I am feeling a little down...I have been moving in the "Day Light", and being weird for God-my rent and utilities are sooo due in three days. Right now my job searches have not given fruit, I am trying to be positive and continue to let people know that there is a good God, and that we are to thank Him and Praise Him on all occassions. I need $1000.00 to keep the roof being over my head and my water and electricity to keep going, especially in this Summer heat. A little head start would help. I keep the smile on face so that people I share God with will not be discouraged by what they don't see in my life, in my greatest need right now, a financial blessing and a good job. I have skills that are marketable, Administrative Clerk, Customer Service, and Spanish Medical Interpreter. I look forward and hope that I can be a part of my 5 year old grand-daughter's budding acting career. She landed a local part and is to start filming on July 27th. Her training has and is being done by De Vore Talent, that settled here in my town. We have just been waiting for her mom to gether headshots done for out of town work, pray that she gets them done soon, she has had them for a while, so a little prayer would speed things up. Your web site is anointed, that is why I came here to be transparent and just let it go. I can not do anything about it,, but I know that God can. I have to believe that more than ever. O, the little financial head start would help, while I continue to search for a job. If you're into OBEY style art, you can comission a piece from my up and coming local artist son. He is fresh, he just did a piece on a wall at a recent Art Hop evening, and established local artists were impressed. They are waiting for him to com out again. He works nights, so he hasn't been back, but my garage has his art that he has been working on. He has done old movie star pieces as well. He has been moving while there is still "Day Light". One more little transparency, I just lost my job about one month ago, due to budget cuts once again, and have not had the heart to tell anyone...this is why I am on your web site, just let it go. So if anyone feels alone in these kinds of circumstances, don't, I am here with you now. Amen.

    LOL @ your closing sentence of this video. But anyway, let me share this song with you. "My soul has been anchored in the Lord" Though the storms keep on raging in my life. & sometimes its hard to tell the night from day. Still that hope that lies w/in is reassured. As I keep my eyes upon the distant shore. I know He'll lead me safely to that BLESSED PLACE He has prepared. And if the storms don't cease, & if the winds keep on blowing. My soul has been anchored in the Lord..... I realize that sometimes in this life, we're gonna be tossed. By the waves & currents that seems so fierce. But in the word OF God, I got an anchor. And it keeps me steadfast, immovable, despite the tide! ....my soul...The billows may roll, the breakers may dash. I shall not sway because He holds me fast. So dark the day, clouds in the sky. I know its alright cause Jesus is mine. I said my soul, my soul...my soul...my soul. Hebrew 6: For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, & bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God..... For God is not unrighteous to forget your work & labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, & do minister. For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, SURELY blessing I will bless thee, & multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, AFTER he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise...... O....k! :-) lol... :)

    Work while it is day is an eye opening comment because sometime things happen where you get side tracked. Has this ever happened to you Tyler? It has happened to me and I am trying to get out of a little space called worry. My father was taken in for a procedure to fix his feeding tube and the doctor disocvered a mass/tumor on his stomache, and I have not been able to concetrate. So I came on to your site just looking and searching for answers. I lost my gandmother to Alzheimer's on December 8, 2009 and I just do not want the same thing for my dad. My grandmother initially passed away from cancer and she could not fight anymore. In fact my grandmother was gone from Alzheimer's before the cancer even took over. I guess i will work on my goals as a quilter and keep going...I will workon my dream and legacy as quilter because my great-grandmother, grandfather, and grandmother would not want me to worry. I guess after listening to your comments I have to keep going as a quilter. I just had to listen to your video twice and I wondered...have you had moments of delay in the creative process. I know that you may not read this but I was wondering when illness and pain sometime happen how do we remain focused. I work in the day on my quilts for the exhibitions because it is my release, but when pain and death happen how do you remain focused? I lost alot of focus when my grandmother died on December 8,2009, and when things happen I wonder sometime what is the universe trying to tell me. I have slowed down so much since my grandmother passed away,and I keep saying,"What are you trying to teach me God? I work hard on my quilts and I always think about the legacy of quilting for my children whom I do not have yet. The right person will come along at the right time...I always say,"At God's time!" When I get older I guess I will learn how to deal with adversity and pain with strength and faith. I wish youall the best and your kind words are truly a blessing. I guess I have to stay in faith for my father and that everything will be alright. I keep the word GOAL on my vision board and for me goal stands for...Growing On A Legacy-GOAL. I am growing on a legacy created my grandparents and great-grandmother. I have to pull through. I know you may not read this because I saw you on Regis and Kelly today...you were funny :) You are a busy man and you may not get to your computer. God Bless You!
