Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to move our life forward with a positive and hopeful attitude. Life is not always easy or joyful, but you can change how you feel by how you think. There will be things that do not go our way. There will be sorrow from situations that occur that we just do not understand. There will be people that try to hold us back from happiness.

You can change the direction of your ship anytime with your attitude and your actions. Yes, you will have to deal with difficult situations. How will you do it? This week try taking a negative situation in your life and put a positive attitude towards it and take positive action to fix it. Do this with every situation and watch in amazement how things start to change for the better. I am here to help in any way I can. Just let me know how I can help. Let's make this the best week of the year!!!


In Times of Trouble

By: Clay Harrison


Often in times of trouble
we don't know what to say,
So we choose to say nothing,
and sometimes run away.

When friends are really hurting,
we don't know what to do,
So we offer weak excuses
or say we're hurting too.

It really doesn't matter
what kind of gift we bring;
We only need to be there
if we don't bring a thing.

It truly is amazing
what a hug can do,
When heartache numbs the senses,
and friends depend on you.

There's comfort just in knowing
that you are not alone,
When tears are overflowing,
and hearts are cold as stone.

It's the loving prayers of others
that balance our accounts,
For when we measure love,
it's still the thought that counts.

Take control of your life and charge towards your dreams! Nate
