  • Excellent work my friend... I have discovered a simple way to keep new years resolutions, Give to others less fortunate than yourself, enrich a childs life by your presence instead of presents, put others first in all things.
    Acknowledging that without Christ you have nothing and knowing that whatever you have he provided it makes keepin resolutions easy.
    May the God of all creation grant you his peace, his health, his forgiveness and his salvation David

  • This is that kind of message in which we all would like to be the actor, but then... To start putting it in practice, I tried last night to sleep standing up in only one leg. Problem was that I did not know what to do with the other one and... Good job Varouj! As always!

Transcript of "A New Years Resolution The List (The story board is over 12 minutes)"

  1. 1. A New Year’s Resolution “The List” … ♥♫ Prepared: Varouj Author: Scott Blum (modified) Music: Gheorghe Iovu “ Lacrimi pentru Diana ♥♫” “ Tears for Diana” http://www.slideshare.net/firelight1
  2. 2. <ul><li>Flamingos are very gregarious and social birds, having large, noisy nesting colonies from a few pairs to sometimes thousands. They live in large colonies for safety and protection . </li></ul><ul><li>The word flamingo comes from Latin word for flame (flamma). </li></ul><ul><li>With their bright feathers and strongly hooked bills, flamingos are among the most easily recognized water birds in the world . </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>There are five species of flamingos worldwide: </li></ul><ul><li>Greater flamingo and Caribbean flamingo subspecies, (2) Lesser flamingo, (3) Andean flamingo, (4) Chilean flamingo, and </li></ul><ul><li>(5) James‘ flamingo . </li></ul><ul><li>Flamingos can reach up to five feet in height. They weigh about 5-7 pounds and have a wingspan of between 4 to 5 feet. Males are larger than females, but the same appearance . </li></ul><ul><li>The color of a flamingo's feathers except for some black wings varies from white, bright red to pale pink . </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>During courtship, both sexes participate in many elaborate and ritualized courtship displays such as marching, head bobbing, head flagging, neck twisting and wing saluting. These displays occur months before and after actual nesting . </li></ul><ul><li>Flamingos frequently stand and sleep on one leg which is their most comfortable resting position. Being able to curl the leg under the body, the flamingo keeps the foot warm and conserves body heat .  </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>What appears to be the flamingo's knee is actually its ankle and they fold their legs so that their feet extend backwards . </li></ul><ul><li>Flamingos have a very poor sense of taste and no sense of smell . </li></ul><ul><li>Eye of the flamingo is actually larger than its brain! </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Flamingo’s beak is referred to as a Roman nose .  </li></ul><ul><li>All flamingos have 12 black flight feathers in each wing . </li></ul><ul><li>Egyptians revered the flamingo as the living embodiment of the Sun God Ra . </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Once upon a time a young man named Zen spent time growing up with an enigmatic man named ELDER. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>It is said that the Elder had taught Zen many things during the times they had spent together. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>The story goes…. </li></ul><ul><li>I never forget the day when Elder said to Zen </li></ul><ul><li>“ Now that you are becoming mature adult you need to begin setting goals for yourself so that you don’t lose the momentum in life you have built” </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Zen replied…. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Like New Year's resolutions?“ </li></ul><ul><li>The Elder smirked </li></ul><ul><li>with a response </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;That's an interesting idea, let’s do that.&quot; </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>By then Zen was used to Elder’s obscure responses, so he knew something was up because of the way his eyes sparkled as he let out a lighthearted laugh. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>The Elder said &quot;Tonight's assignment is to make </li></ul><ul><li>two lists,&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>The first is a list of all the New Year's resolutions you WANT to keep . </li></ul><ul><li>The second is a list of all the New Year's resolutions you WILL keep . </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Remember to write the WANT List first, </li></ul><ul><li>and when you have exhausted all of your ideas, </li></ul><ul><li>then write the WILL list on another sheet of paper. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>That night Zen went home and spends several hours working on the </li></ul><ul><li>two lists. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>The WANT List… </li></ul><ul><li>felt a bit overwhelming at first, but after a while he got into writing all the things he had always wanted to do if only the difficulties & burdens of life had not gotten in the way. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>After nearly an hour, </li></ul><ul><li>the “Want” list swelled to fill the entire page and contained nearly all of his ideas to an ideal life. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>The second list “WILL” </li></ul><ul><li>was much easier, </li></ul><ul><li>he was able to quickly commit ten practical resolutions that he felt would be both realistic and helpful. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>The next day, Zen met the Elder in front of the local store. The Elder asked </li></ul><ul><li>“ tell me about your two lists” with the familiar smirk on his face. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>The first list “WANT” contained all the things I SHOULD do , </li></ul><ul><li>if I completely changed my life to be the person I always wanted to be. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>The second list “WILL” contained all the things </li></ul><ul><li>I COULD do by </li></ul><ul><li>accepting my current life , and taking realistic steps towards the life </li></ul><ul><li>I want to lead.&quot; </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>The Elder asked first </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Let me see the second list,&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Zen handed him the second list, and without even looking at it, the Elder tore the paper into tiny pieces and threw it away. </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Elder’s disregard to the 2 nd list Annoyed Zen at first, but he calmed down and began to think about the first list in a different perspective. </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>Zen thought out… </li></ul><ul><li>“ in my heart, I knew the second list was just a cop out, </li></ul><ul><li>and the first list was the only one that really mattered.” </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>Zen then handed to the Elder the first list. </li></ul><ul><li>The Elder bowed his head holding the list with both hands. </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>After an unusually long silence, the Elder began to crumple the paper into a ball and once again tossing it away without looking further. </li></ul>
  26. 26. <ul><li>Zen in a moment of displeasure, anger and frustration cried out </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;What did you do </li></ul><ul><li>that for?&quot; </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>The Elder rested with a moment of silence until Zen was calm and replied… </li></ul>Ah…. forgot It’s just a family show Smiles…
  28. 28. <ul><li>… &quot;What you </li></ul><ul><li>SHOULD or COULD do with your life </li></ul><ul><li>No longer matters. ” </li></ul>
  29. 29. <ul><li>…“ The only thing that matters, from this day forward, </li></ul><ul><li>is what you </li></ul><ul><li>MUST do “. </li></ul>
  30. 30. <ul><li>He then reached to his back pocket pulled out a folded piece of paper and handed to Zen… </li></ul>
  31. 31. <ul><li>Zen in all his curiosity and anxiousness opened the folded paper to find a single word floating in the middle of the blank page. </li></ul><ul><li>“ LOVE” </li></ul>
  32. 32. <ul><li>“ The birth of love takes place in the mother’s womb and no power on earth can overcome the gift of transformation in the omnipresence of God”. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Personal thoughts” </li></ul>
  33. 33. <ul><li>“ Love resides in the </li></ul><ul><li>bosom of God within the soul. </li></ul><ul><li>If one befriends, bows and greets with a hug it will bring forth treasures to priceless discoveries”. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Personal thoughts” </li></ul>
  34. 34. <ul><li>“ One is unable to attain and experience the real meaning of love unless they first discover to love themselves before sharing the divine gift to </li></ul><ul><li>love others”. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Personal thoughts” </li></ul>
  35. 35. <ul><li>“ Love and Ego are in the opposite realm on the spectrum of life. </li></ul><ul><li>One illuminates light the other chases in darkness. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus one can not serve two masters”. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Personal thoughts” </li></ul>
  36. 36. <ul><li>“ Love is a choice one is given to make, it is the conscience within the soul as the compass to navigate us through life’s moments in turbulence and calmness”. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Personal thoughts” </li></ul>
  37. 37. <ul><li>“ GOD IS LOVE” </li></ul><ul><li>While we live in faith, hope, our most important dwelling place is God’s love. Without making His love our ultimate dwelling , we can not fully live in faith and hope. </li></ul><ul><li>NOW ABIDE IN FAITH, HOPE, LOVE. THESE THREE : BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE. </li></ul><ul><li>1 st Corinthians 13:13 </li></ul>
  38. 38. <ul><li>“ There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out all fear” </li></ul><ul><li>“ 1John 4:18” </li></ul>http://www.slideshare.net/firelight1
