Keep focusing on the virtues of the person to whom you are married.
This simple idea can easily save people much heartache and strife in their marriage. When you see the good in someone, it is much easier to tolerate the traits you find negative.
Love Yehuda Lave
This happened in the UK. A couple of thoughts: 1. Admitting people from Muslim countries, without properly vetting them first, to the West is DANGEROUS to those who support Western values, Jews, and those who support Israel. 2. The poor bobbies are rendered impotent and are in a far more dangerous situation than they should be because they are unarmed and not properly staffed for a situation like this one. 3. The West must learn exactly what we are dealing with. There is a poisonous ideology that is fueling all of the unrest and hatred we see. Until/Unless we honestly identify and confront this heinous ideology these scenes will repeat themselves and become worse. This ideology is akin to Nazism, but is in some ways much worse because it is not based upon race - and therefore has many more adherents who are spread far and wide in every country on earth. We are on the precipice. How will we react?

Former Sergeant Noah Galloway has inspired millions through the story of his life.

NOAH'S BIO: Just three months into his second tour of duty, Noah experienced a life changing injury. Galloway lost his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee in an Improvised Explosive Device attack. After a long stint in recovery and rehabilitation, Galloway did what many disabled veterans do, becoming withdrawn, out of shape and depressed. The former fitness fanatic and hyper competitive athlete was now drinking, smoking and sleeping his days away. But late one night, Galloway took a long look in the mirror and realized there was more to him than the injuries. And he set a goal to get back in shape, be healthier and inspire others.
Now a personal trainer and motivational speaker, Galloway doesn't take excuses from his clients, fans and followers – and finds ways to get things done. As a sought after public speaker, Galloway's enthusiasm for life and his passion for helping others brings a unique perspective to gatherings. Most recently, Galloway took third place in ABC's hit series, Dancing with the Stars, following his appearance on the November cover of Men's Health Magazine, as he was named the publication's 2014 Ultimate Guy. Galloway recently created the No Excuses Charitable Fund. ASK YOURSELF:
What challenges have I faced that made me a stronger person?
How can I turn my obstacles into opportunities?
What does it take to go from the victim of life events to the one who engineers my life?
The following emails are based on the "The concise book of Mitzvoth" the last book compiled by the Chofetz Chayim the leader of his generation.
His wish was that we should all know the Commandments that we are able to perform at the present time, there are 77 +ve Commandments and 194 –ve Prohibitions.
When the opportunity arises remember them and carry them out. Remembering brings one to doing as it says in Bemidbar 15:39 "You shall see them and remember all Gods Commandments and perform them". Mitzvah + 1. It is a positive commandment to be faithful to the existence of God.
As it says in Shmot 20:2 "I am the Lord your God …"
He who is blessed and elevated brought everything in the worlds into existence from His power and desire and He supervises over everything.
This is the foundation of our religion and whoever is not faithful to this denies the essential principal and has no portion and merit amongst the Jewish people.
We are obligated to be prepared to give over our lives and resources to uphold this faithfulness.
It is essential to instil within oneself that Gods existence is the truth and the alternative is impossible.
This is applicable at all times and constantly for men and women.
This is Something For You WW II History Buffs, 70 years ago/today
This is great, see all of these pics, before and after. Fabulous!!!
WHEN YOU LEFT CLICK ON EACH PICTURE, HOLD IT AND DRAG YOUR
MOUSE GENTLY FROM LEFT TO RIGHT ON THE ORIGINAL PHOTOS AND IT WILL BECOME THE SAME LOCATION -- 70 YEARS LATER.
DRAG IT BACK OVER AND YOU ARE IN 1944 AGAIN. (You need to do this with your mouse.)
A DESCRIPTION OF EACH LOCATION IS AT THE BOTTOM OF EACH PICTURE.
1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats. 2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair. 3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the second person. 4) You can't trust dogs to watch your food. 5) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandma's lap.
GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:
1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree. 2) Wrinkles don't hurt. 3) Families are like fudge... mostly sweet, with a few nuts 4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground. 5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside. 6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.
GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD:
1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. 2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get. 3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there. 4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster. 5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician. 7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.
THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:
1) You believe in Santa Claus. 2) You don't believe in Santa Claus. 3) You are Santa Claus. 4) You look like Santa Claus.
SUCCESS: How true this one is.
At age 4 success is . . . ... Not piddling in your pants. At age 12 success is ... . . Having friends. At age 17 success is ..... . Having a driver's license. At age 35 success is . ... . Having money. At age 50 success is . .. .. Having money. At age 70 success is . ... . Having a drivers license. At age 75 success is ... ... Having friends. At age 80 success is . .. .. Not piddling in your pants.
Pass this on to someone who could use a laugh.
Always remember to forget the troubles that pass your way; BUT NEVER forget the blessings that come each day.
