True Love Never Breaks a Heart

Posted on Updated on

True Love Never Breaks a Heart

True Love is steadfast and supportive, one that is never failing, a love that is willing to forgive, a love that never fears. It is a Love that is pure; and will always be clear.  It is guaranteed to keep passion in a relationship, because it possesses the souls and the hearts of two people and will not depart.

When a challenge confronts the relationship; True Love will defend its position in the hearts of two people that beats as one. The power of True Love cannot be broken. The relationship will never be open.




Broken hearts mends slowly; while a few never mends. And because of broken hearts, many relationships end. Not True Love, because it defends the hearts of two people who will never be apart. True Love never breaks a heart.

It took hope for a brighter future, courage and strength, with many prayers along the way to complete my goals. Thank God, I made it!

Success comes with lots of hard work and many challenges along the way.

To succeed is a great accomplishment and success is sweet.

I will give gratitude to God, for his guidance and blessings. And offer my appreciation to my friends for their spiritual support. This is something I will humbly treasure.

It is Just Me and Only a Prayer

 It is Just Me and Only a Prayer

Dreams of success are easy to make when we share them with others, who are supportive. It is the challenges that come to hinder our progress, and test our strength, when we begin our walk up the Ladder of Success alone.

When I walked onto the Ladder of Success, I heard the distance voices of doubt that I could reach the top.There were times when I felt the Ladder of Success shaking violently underneath my feet and I nearly lost my balance; those were the times when I prayed for strength to hold on.

I soon realized I had enemies whose hands were on the Ladder of Success determined to keep me from reaching the top.

There were times when the top of the Ladder of Success seemed farther away each day as I struggled to keep from falling and to ignore the voices of doubt continuing to say, “You will never make it!” Why, don’t you let go?”

When the day of silence of the voices and sturdiness of the ladder of Success finally came, I heard the cheers of “Congratulation!” from my friends; I had reached the top of the Ladder of Success!

At the end of my journey on the Ladder of Success, I came to the conclusion; a person does not  have to be religious to reach the top of the Ladder of Success; but every one that step onto the Ladder of Success, must have hope. And I whispered a prayer of thanks for hope.
