“Let Them Go”
By T. D. Jakes

There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you, let them walk. I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean, hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you, let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody who left. The Bible said that they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19] People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay.

Let them go.

It doesn’t mean that they are a bad person; it just means that their part in the story is over. And you’ve got to know when peoples’ part in your story is over so that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead. You’ve got to know when it’s dead.

You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something. I’ve got the gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift. I believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He’ll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay.

Let them go!

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Closes In On Apple’s iPhone 5

Samsung's Galaxy S4 is unveiled on March 14, 2...

That’s all interesting data. Something else is going on though.

First, how does that compare with the iPhone 5?

Eric Savitz wrote here back in October that the iPhone 5′s launch weekend sales were 5 million (including orders not shipped).

Sadly for Apple that meant the share price then dropped because the market expected 8 – 10 million units sold. Sometimes you just can’t win!

In the last quarter of 2012, however, Apple AAPL +0.19% was blowing Samsung away with 27.4 million iPhone 5′s sold, coupled to 17.4 million iPhone 4S. During that period Samsung sold a more modest 15.4 million S III phones.

If the S4 sells 10 million units in five weeks, then it is clearly on track to be Samsung’s best selling smartphone yet but not quite to breach Apple’s record.

However, Samsung got an additional boost yesterday when Google GOOG -0.79% announced it would sell a stripped back S4 for the more purist Android fan.

Over the next few weeks Samsung will launch three other variants, maintaining its strategy of narrow innovation, alongside its broader hardware innovations in OLED, camera and batteries, and keeping the buzz around the S4 well and truly alive.

It already sells a more capable device outside the USA and will add to this an S4 Mini and an S4 Zoom.

The highly rumoured S4 Mini will be sporting a 4.3″ display with 8 MP rear camera and a dual-core 1.6 GHz processor. But another upcoming variant of S4 Mini, the Samsung GALAXY S4 Zoom (SM-C1010), will have a similar form factor with a 16 MP rear snapper. The camera would also feature optical image stabilisation with 10x optical zoom.

There is also a good chance they will launch a ruggedized version, with better waterproof and dust-proofing.

Samsung’s narrow innovation strategy will almost certainly help increase sales and, as important as that, it signals a new phase in the company’s ability to cater to different markets. Much as Apple fans may not want to admit it, this also signals a new innovation capability. 5 Samsung S4s in two months is quite some going.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

Sleep Now Grandma (To my Lola Teofila “Pilang”)

Although I cannot see you,
I feel your presence near.
I will hold you close in memory,
Till I drop my very last tear.

So sleep now with the angels,
And your golden heart let rest.
Although our hearts are broken,
We know GOD took the best.

So dance beyond those golden gates,
And join our loving GOD.
I’ll see you when I’m sleeping,
And pray for you to come.

And although this pain is painful,
And I really don’t wanna let you go.
I know this not temporary, I know we’ll see you soon

Until that day I’ll close my eyes,
and see your smiling face.
I’ll lock you up inside my heart,
Until we again embrace.

So rest now my beautiful Grandma,
I’ll never forget how much you have done.
So until my hand meets yours again,
Sleep now in the sun.
