Celebrating the Love of Friends in a Loving World
Red Roses for You, My Sweet Friends ... Total Love.

My Sweet Friends

My sweet friends,

We grow closer to each other;

When we interact together and share ideas;

The common faith that we share,

Binds our hearts in one accord.

For sweet friendships last a life time,

When built on mutual respect, humility and understanding;

Throughout each different season,

We find we are one in life.

Sweet friends are there through times of grief;

And times when hope is gone;

Always there with encouragement;

So we can carry on.

I thank the Lord for you,

My true and faithful friends;

To fondly speak with you, whether we agree or not,

On this, our beloved blog;

For sweet friends will stay, no matter what;

Giving support.

Together, our hearts and minds truly unite;

With the amazing love of sweet friends.

In the spirit of true friendship,

Best wishes, my sweet friends;

May the Lord bless you abundantly.

I remain, yours truly,

B.B. Bakampa.

ALPHABET FOR ACTION FOR POSSIBILITY THINKERS*

A––Affirm; affirm that you can do it; that you can make it; that you can succeed. Anybody can
amount to something if he will affirm himself and his abilities.

B––Believe; believe that somehow, some time, somewhere, through someone’s help, you can
achieve your highest goal.

C––Commit; commit yourself to a dream.

D––Dare; dare to try; dare to love; dare to make a commitment; dare to take a risk. If you don’t
dare, you will never get ahead.

E––Educate; educate yourself. The knowledgeable person who has the right answers is the one who
will impress the powerful people.

F––Find; find the talent, the possibilities, the time, the money and the way. The Romans said,
“When there is no way, we will find one or build one.

G––Give; a giving attitude is the secret to successful living.

H––Hope; hope is holding on and praying expectantly. It’s never giving up or quitting.

I––Imagine; possibility thinking is in actuality the exercise of dynamic, creative and sanctified
imagination.

J––Junk; junk the junk food of your mind. To keep hope alive, to be a creative imaginer, you have
to throw out the tremendous load of junk food that we feed into our minds and emotions.

K––Knock; knock out depression, knock out discouragement, knock out all kinds of forecasts of
gloom and doom.

L––Laugh; you must keep a sense of humour and be able to laugh at yourself. When you laugh, you
can love because then you are loving people because they need you and the joy you can bring to
their life.

M––Make it happen; you can make it happen when you manage because possibility thinking is
really another label for dynamic mental management. You can make it happen.

N––Negotiate; if you want to get from A to Z in the Alphabet for Action for Possibility Thinkers
you have to be able to negotiate, to compromise. You can’t have your way all the time.

O––Overlook and overcome; overlook your own and other people’s imperfections. When you
overlook, you’ll be able to overcome.

P––Persevere; don’t give up. Tough times never last, but tough people do.
Q––Quit; quit complaining because life isn’t as nice as you want it.

R––Reorganize; if you haven’t succeeded, then you have to say, “I need to reorganize.” And when
you succeed, you will have to reorganize.

S––Share; God can do tremendous things through the person who doesn’t care who gets the credit
and is willing to share the credit, share the power, and share the glory.

T––Trade-off; when you have begun to reorganize and share, then you will have to get ready to
tread-off. That means that you will have to decide what you will give up in order to keep what
you’ve got.

U––Unlock; unlock some human values you never experienced before––faith, hope and love. Let
these values be the driving force propelling you toward true success. Success is being in a
position to help others who are hurting.

V––Visualize; visualize the dream before you. Don’t ever lose the vision. When you lose the vision,
you’re dead. Where there are no dreams, people perish.

W––Work; there is no substitute to work. Success is spelled W-O-R-K.

X––X-ray; if you are pursuing a job, if you are on your way toward a goal, if you’ve got a dream,
then it’s high time you stopped once more and x-rayed your deepest motives. You need to ask
yourself, first, “What do I really want to accomplish?” Then ask yourself, “If I continue the way
I am, will I get to where I really want to go?” Then ask a third question: “If I get there, will I be
happy? And will that really fulfill me at my deepest level?” That’s what you call x-ray.

Y––Yield; when it is all said and done, you must be ready to yield it all to God. Yield your life and
problems to God. Let go and let God.

Z––Zip it up; if you x-ray your motives and yield it all to God, then you come to the end and you
can zip it up. You can face whatever is ahead of you and with God as your friend, you can
succeed.
