My longest yet, please bear with me. Thanks for reading.

Jesus is real
Love is a gift that keeps on giving. Giving it away only makes room for more to come in
Forgiveness is the spice of life without which life is void of love and hence meaningless
Thoughts, words and actions can be likened to Father, Son and Holy Spirit; they are never independent of eachother
Taking things personally is very taxing to the soul and slowly robs it of its ability to exude goodness
We are all guilty of theft for when we talk bad about someone behind their backs and gossip we not only steal thier honor but ours as well
God is Love
Never break or burn your bridges, sometimes you have to take a step back in order to move forward
Water is to our bodies as air is to our lungs, all others are just colored liquids that should be taken in with utmost precaution
Exercise and eating the right kinds of food are the only sure way to longevity all other short cuts including diets lead to an early grave
There are no free rides in life, every effort and action is the sacrifice that brings about the miracle of a worthy reaction
Money is definitely not the root of every evil, the lack of love is
Age is an illusion that conditions the mind to expect death but we can all live like trees, with no concept of time
You can tell a man/woman's character by not only listening to what she/he says but by watching the way they act in the midst of uncertainty
A true friend is one who can take your place any given day and gives you the confidence that they would act in a manner that defines you both.
Dreams are real. They are fragments of truth that sometimes can only be revealed in the subconscious state.
The universe is your pantry. You can basically walk down every aisle and pick from every shelf whatever it is you want. But the catch is that whatever you use for the good of another will be to your advantage and whatever you squander or use for selfish purposes will be to your detriment. So choose wisely.
So for all who've said "If I could give you the moon" and never tried have only been limited by their doubts and fears. You can touch the moon, even a star plucked from the sky can be a night light by your head.
Flowers are ornaments for the senses
Children are a blessing
For they (children) are the only way we can begin to fathom God's love for us, for as much as we love them, He has even greater love for us
You can know someone and love them even though you've never met them if you are connected to thesame source.
There is no such thing as change only shifting. Like a prism which projects lights of different colors from different angles, what we see as change is simply a shift in our perceptions based on the shifting nature of people and things.
Lies destroy the world for they take us one step backward away from our return to eden.
Words are never just words they are the fabric of every situation and circumstance, when used they can only do two thing only, they either make or break.
Everything matters
Nothing doesn't exist; merely a word that usually precedes an excuse or a lie
Love is worth fighting for but only one kind; the love of Christ, for out of His love comes all others that are worth fighting for
We are light for eachther's path so make sure yours always shines brightly

I am beautiful and worthy of every goodness there is to behold

*These are the things my spirit revealed to me on the eve of my 30th birthday. These are just 30 of my truths, I'm sure there will be many more to come.

Happy Birthday!!
There is great wisdom in these truths that you have penned. The only thing that I can add is that humor should be a part of life...but then I know you already know that as well... hee, hee...

P.S. your pict. shows a FREE-Spirit, to see one is to know one! Having Jesus 1st and knowing he is alive/in heart and soul/etc. is a perfect #1. To picture a mom with many children and knowing Love is abundance and when given, more will still be there to share! I could say more, but don't want this so long! I truly loved this poem! AS you Celebrate another GREAT Year ahead! Since #29, is your truth, you will like ( I believe) my style of writing, I hope you take a peek and end of staying awhile!

Hi Bernice,I want to wish you a Happy Birthday.I must say that I was impress with what you write and I enjoy reading it.Most of all,I learned a lot while reading what you wrote.People should really look at their lives and be able to figure out what they truly want.Also they should look at the mistakes they did and learn from them in terms of becoming a better human being.Life is like a classroom,everyday we learn something about ourselves that we haven't discovered.We also learn about other people and the world around us.Everybody,young and old will never stop learning.Take care of yourself and I truly appreciate you writing this
