Nearly everything I learned from my mother, I learned from watching her live; observing how she interacted with and treated others. Occasionally, I missed a lesson and took my cues from how people treated her – dismissively, disrespectfully or abusively. When I responded to them in kind, mom would rebuke me with a great deal of irritation….
Life is a journey. We either pay attention to the signposts and embrace all the experiences we fall into or we don’t. With or without our attention, life goes on and things happen. So says, LaShawnda Jones, an author who writes with the intention of keeping her attention on her daily development, with a hope for being able to liver her tomorrow more fully.
Recent publications by LaShawnda Jones are: My God and Me: Listening, Learning and Growing on My Journey; The Process of Asking for, Receiving and Giving Love & Forgiveness. Both are available for purchase on Barnes&Noble.com and Amazon.com.

While the pulpit and the church people are decrying emotion and cultivating a frigid intellectual life, the theater is playing on the emotional life of the people, and they have the crowds and the money to support them.
In this we are confronted by a fact we cannot down – it stares us in the face and will not go at our bidding, viz.: God gave man an emotional nature, and for wise and holy purposes. If we seek to destroy that nature, then we destroy the man as God made him, and we can but expect that he will dedicate his life to other ends than that for which he was created.
