“…My point is: how often do we ignore the obvious. Are we so preoccupied that we don’t notice important things, events, or people, around us that DESERVE our attention….”

Are we properly Respectful to God, Our Lord Jesus Christ?  I recently realized, that while I thought that I was…I wasn’t.  I had an occasion to borrow a Bronze Crucifix (depicting Christ Crucified on the Cross), and had it sitting on my dining-room table for several days, before returning it.  I must have passed that […]

“…A “little respect” will go a long way; it’s like frosting on a cake….”

  Always treat people with RESPECT…. Galatians 5:20-22 tells us: Idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  But the fruit […]

“…I pride myself in self-control. It is an exercise in mental, emotional, and spiritual strength….”

Self-control…. I don’t take it for granted.  Even the success of a diet is based on self-control.  In fact, I can’t think of anything that we, as humans do, that is not subject to self-control.  There is a stopping point to everything that we do.  Or, should I say… there should be a stopping point.  […]

“…If we lay our lazy tail in bed… because someone in our “family” doesn’t want to go…”

CAPITALISM …VS… IDOLATRY:  Well its kind’a the same thing…isn’t it?  It’s the worship of something ahead of God.  If we worship MONEY, or the making of money, or free enterprise; then we are Idolaters.  If we worship materials things…cars, boats, our house, our job, a person, sex, gambling, drinking, a place, or thing(s)…above God…then, we […]

“…Imagine that. And, I’m not kidding either. Here’s how it goes….”

I’ve been a “life-long” EVANGELIST and didn’t even know it.  Imagine that.  And, I’m not kidding either.  Here’s how it goes.  I have a clear and distinctive memory of when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior in December of 1952…62 years ago.  It wasn’t that big of deal either….meaning it was easy to accept […]

“… I consider every rejection an opportunity….”

R-E-J-E-C-T-I-O-N… We all have tasted the pain of being turned down from a job; or worse…being dismissed from a job, or some other form of being spurned, refused, or rejected.  I know that I have.  In fact…while I’ll not address the details here…I’ve experienced REJECTION some 400 times in the last three years. …not a […]

“…Frankly, I rather 25% of the readers read it 100% of the time; then 100% of the readers read it 25% of the time….”

Are my “postings” falling on deaf ears?  I’m not talking about if the intended receivers are actually receiving them; or if they’re actually reading them.  I’m comfortable that “it” is going to the intended recipient, and that he/she is reading it… even if only ½ or 1/4th are reading it….I’m happy.   In fact, I’d rather […]

“…He provides more HOPE than all other sources of Hope combined….”

You pass out “hope” likes its candy….This was mentioned, as a compliment, while attending a recent Bible Study program; in regards to the featured Speaker (not me).  And, it reminded me of how remarkably talented some of our Christian Leaders, and others, who are so “willing to give” from the heart, their time, and their […]

“… To some, there is no such thing as TRUTH. They may have passion and experience, but without TRUTH, they are also void of LOVE…”

  Passion, Truth, and Experience:  How might these attributes intermingle?  Possibly, as one does not function well without the other.  One must have a compelling, intense emotion (passion), desirous of a specific outcome.  One must be truthful in their desire, their emotion, and their evaluation of themselves and their subject.  And without experience, you have […]

“…We MUST choose to be happy, to be positive, and to be joyful….”

Attitude vs Altitude:  I ALWAYS combine these two words whenever thinking or applying them. I want my ATITUDE to be FLYING-HIGH.  My attitude “is my high.”  I am a morning person, and have a definite routine that I go through.  I don’t start the day in NEUTRAL, rather, I’m in high-gear from the get-go.  I’m […]
