Commandments of Life

I hope you are all having a great morning! Truthfully, every day is a great day when God is in it, right? I thought you would agree:o)
I visited a great site this morning and found this amazing set of rules to follow in life.

The Ten Commandments of Life

FIRST - Fully and unconditionally love yourself. Recognize your Divinity. Honor yourself.

SECOND - Unconditionally love and accept others. Recognize their Divinity and honor them.

THIRD - Take responsibility for your actions. You always have a choice; how you feel, act or what you say. Act, don't react.

FOURTH - Be a Master of Divine expression. Live the Universal Laws of Love, Peace, Truth.

FIFTH - You create your life (by your choices, feelings and actions). Live in joy.

SIXTH - Let go and allow (let God). Listen to and follow, unconditionally, your small quiet voice; your spirit (God).

SEVENTH - Be thankful and humble. Give thanks for what you have and receive. Be grateful.

EIGHT - Your sustenance comes from inside you (God). Trust. You will always be provided for.

NINTH - Your body is the temple of your soul. Nurture and care for yourself.

TENTH - Live in the present moment. Life can only be experienced now.

If we follow these suggestions along with being obedient to God's laws, we'll be sitting pretty, don't you think?

Suggested Viewing And Reading

Movie: Fireproof

Lt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner behind. Inside burning buildings, it's his natural instinct. In the cooling embers of his marriage, it's another story. After a decade of marriage, Caleb and Catherine Holt have drifted so far apart that they are ready to move on without each other. Yet as they prepare to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb's dad asks his son to try an experiment: The Love Dare. While hoping The Love Dare has nothing to do with his parents' newfound faith, Caleb commits to the challenge. But can he attempt to love his wife while avoiding God's love for him? Will he be able to demonstrate love over and over again to a person that's no longer receptive to his love? Or is this just another marriage destined to go up in smoke?

If you haven't seen this movie, go out and get today and watch it this evening, only make sure you have a box of tissues handy. This this is one of the best movies on the importance of marriage and unconditional love I have ever watched. Even if you have a great marriage, there is no way you can watch this movie without being affected and changed for the better.

Book: The Love Dare
Author: Alex and Stephen Kendrick - Companion Book to Fireproof

The Book
Too many marriages end when someone says "I've fallen out of love with you" or "I don't love you anymore." The Love Dare discusses how these statements reveal a lack of understanding about the fundamental nature of true love.

As featured in the popular new movie Fireproof, from the team that brought us the #1 best selling DVD Facing the Giants, The Love Dare is a 40-day guided devotional experience that will lead your heart back to truly loving your spouse while learning more about the design, nature, and source of true love. Each reading includes Scripture, a statement of principle, the day's "dare," and a journaling area and check box to chart progress.

Dare to take The Love Dare, and see your marriage change forever.

Fireproof and The Love Dare are sold everywhere. Get your copy of both today. I promise you will be glad you did:o)

I loved that movie! It had substance and value, and was a great reminder about complacency in marriage and how one spouse can make a huge difference in bringing the love back.
