“…It’s hard… being a NICE guy. It doesn’t come NATURAL for me. I mean… I’m nice enough…. But, being “nice enough,” is NOT Good ENOUGH…!”

QUALITY Guy: “…See that fellow over there….now, he’s a QUALITY guy?”  I pray… someone, somewhere, sometime…. Might utter those words about me.  What a compliment!  The FACT is; we ought to be doing it anyway.  We all know people… who deserve that type of compliment.   Why not try saying ‘it’ as often as we […]

“…Either you give-in to the company’s flawed-character …. Or you retreat. ….find a different job… one that reflects your own goals and standards…”

EIGHT signs you’re working for a FAILING company…or one that is up to NO-GOOD. God was “kicked-out” of the Board Room two years earlier. They discontinued the Christmas Bonus’s last year. The HVAC system works spasmodically. Your last two paychecks bounced. You’ve not seen your boss/owner in two weeks. The Boss’s Executive Assistant is “mysteriously […]

“…I can say… with AUTHORITY… having a ‘calm, cool, and collected’ nature, over many years of trying to ‘outrun the tiger’… has SAVED me considerable time, money, embarrassment, and miss-fortune….”

STAY CALM…COOK & COLLECTED:  For me, I’ve been the ‘Mr. Calm’… all my life. I don’t get too excited about much.  Sure, I’m quick to LAUGH… that is…if it’s “really funny.”   Moderately funny… I give a weak-smile.  Same with sadness… I’m not into ‘over-reacting.’  It’ not that I’m INSENTIVE; it’s just that I’m very SLOW […]

“…All of us have FREEDOM… to do whatever we please…SIN and SHAME, or LOVE and OBEDIEDENCE…. CHOOSE what you like…”

CHOICE… As humans… do we really have a choice?   Or course…   Because we are made ‘in the Image of God’…  This, alone… gives us ‘free-will.’   We’re told… in Genesis: 16-17 – And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the […]

“…Society is telling us, today… particularly our youth… that ‘our bodies’ are for our own use… to do as we see fit… to use, or to abuse…”

1 Corinthians 6:13c-15a, 17-20 – Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food’,* and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is meant not for immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. And God raised the Lord and will also raise us by his power. […]

“…How can some people JUSTIFY… IGNORING their children, parents, and sibling’s … holding GRUDGES, seemingly… FOREVER. Forgive… 7 times …70….”

When’s the last time we saw our parents?  This is some ‘good-advice’…worth pondering, for people of ALL-AGES….call you Mother!!  If your Mom is still alive, kicking, and carrying out her duties of….boss forever; then PLEASE… STOP reading this article…and go call her.  Tell her how much you LOVE her, how much she’s meant to you […]

“…If it’s worth agreeing to, then it’s worth writing down, and signing…”

SILENT AGREEMENT:  What does ‘saying nothing, or, remaining silent’ mean?  Well, to me, it would usually imply CONCENT, or agreement.  There are exceptions.  For an example:  if a group of ‘thugs’… discussed robbing a bank, and ‘you remained silent’…yet you go on the robbery…then you have implied CONCENT, and if apprehended, you’ll likely be found […]

“…“Now Charley, next time we meet… bring me a hat like yours. I sure do want one, and I’ll pay you for it…”

About seventy-three years ago, I remember my Dear Mother reminding me that it was ‘my brother’s birthday’… and that I should select one of ‘my toys,’ the one I liked best …and give it to him as a birthday gift.  A strange request for a 4 or 5-year old….give up my best toy…what was she […]

“…I think, we place a sense of URGENCY on the wrong issues. We get ‘all-wrapped-up,’ in nonsensical things…things that don’t amount to a hill-of-beans…”

I live under a ‘Cloud of URGENCY.’  I suppose it is “part and parcel” with my ADDICTIVE personality.  Almost… everything is important to me.  I’m a “do it now,” sort of guy.  Sure, there are things that I don’t consider URGENT, and I’m fairly good at prioritizing.  My point is… if it’s on my ‘to […]

“… I KNOW, too, that I can’t do this by myself. No… I don’t need outside help… intervention, etc. What I need is the GRACE of God … and a good ‘challenge.’ I’ll provide the CHALLENGE, and God will provide the Grace…”

SELF-CONTROL:  Some of us have it… some don’t.  Some have had it… and lose it.  For me… I’m pretty good at ‘self-control.’  That is…until it comes to BAD EATING HABITS.  I CANNOT stop with just one or two Oreo cookies. I’m 25 pounds ‘overweight’ because I have allowed it to be so.  It’s my fault.  […]
