Pray for Migrants

News about migrants in Europe and other parts of the world is not good. Leaving ones country involuntarily is not good. Many people in Canada are immigrants and many did not come here by choice. If you have migrated in your life you will know this first hand.

Say a prayer for all migrants around the world. May they have faith and hope. May they endure what has come upon them with strength and courage. Back your prayers by finding a way to help them financially. You will feel good about it!

Imagine Financial Freedom

Imagine being financially free. You will not have to think about where your next dollar will come from. You will not have to worry about how expensive things are. You will be able to do whatever you want, and go wherever you want and spend freely. You will be able to complete dream projects without worrying about the cost. You will be able to share some of your wealth with those that are less fortunate. Some people have such financial freedom and are doing as much as they can to help others less fortunate.

Challenge: If you ever found such financial freedom, consider sharing some of it with others. But hold on, don’t wait until you become very rich to share. You might wait all your life and never see great wealth.

How about sharing what you already have even if you are struggling. Many people who give and share whatever they have are discovering the satisfaction and peace  resulting from giving.

Message: Give now and don’t worry much about it. The next time you drive up to a begging hand at a corner, give a coin and don’t worry how it is spent.  Amazingly the more you give, the more comes your way. Happy giving!

Dream of Peace

I dream of a day when all of humanity will get along. That will never happen you say. Well there was a time we thought South Africa would never see a time without a racist government. I am lucky to live and see that it is not true anymore. It was a struggle to get it all working but thanks to dreamers and fighters who never quit,  life changed and continues to improve.

You should dream and never quit. It may not happen in your lifetime but all humans will live in peace one day, without war and hatred.

How about that for a dream? What is your dream?

Elections

Voter Turnout

 

Canadian Federal Party politicians are out campaigning again and citizens will soon be voting to elect a Prime Minister and members of parliament. One worrying fact that is based on statistics is that many people will not vote. In the most recent Federal election, 61.4% turned out to vote How about the rest?

  • Would results be different if all eligible voters exercised this right?
  • Would you consider the convenience of voting online? The time and technology is certainly here and now.
  • Should voting be made mandatory like payment of taxes?

After the election, whether you voted or not, leaders will make decisions that affect you. Decisions such as to how your tax dollars are spent will impact you and family.  This is another call to you to get out and vote and be part of the process. You will feel good that you were part of the decision whatever the outcome. After all there will only be one person elected as Prime Minister.  So don’t worry if your choice is not elected. You will have to work with the majority to shape this country, just like all the unsuccessful people.

Every vote matters including yours. So get out and vote.

AFTER THE VOTE

Canadians voted in record numbers and the outcome was a majority Liberal government with a new Prime Minister. Thanks for exercising your right. Now the real work begins and it must include all who won and lost. In order to get things moving properly, it is important that all parties come together, forget about continuing with political division and work for the common good of the country. I plan to watch how all this works out. If done properly we shall see great growth in this great country. Stay tuned.
