“…The ‘right-rib’ is the bone that ‘holds everything together’…”

To thrive in live you need three bones…a wish bone, a back bone, and a funny bone.  My Bride showed me this “corny phrase” a few weeks ago, and I made a note of it…. Thinking… cute, but ridiculous. But now, I can’t resist the idea of adding to the silliness of it. THE WISH […]

“…I’ve probably been known as a ‘PAID-SOB’ most of my business life…”

What about our reputation?  We all have one of those….. A REPUTATION.  Some of us go through life, really….not caring…. About our reputation. So, I ask… what do you want to be “noted for,” or, when we pass on…. What do you want to be “remembered” for?   Now… I cannot really believe that there’s anyone […]

“…The Holy Spirit KNEW ME, but I didn’t KNOW Him….”

The “Holy Trinity.” Most of us accept the theory that there is a Father and a Son, in terms of God and Jesus Christ.   But, there is also a “third power” in the Trinity, known as the HOLY SPIRIT. For some 40+ years, I related “just to” God the Father. While I knew “all about […]

“…Being “gracious” in our speech, not only speaks well of ourselves, but our parents, as well…”

Do you see that fellow over there….now, he’s a QUALITY guy? I can only pray that someone, somewhere, sometime…. Might utter those words about me. What a compliment? The FACT is; we ought to be doing that anyway. We should do it every time we have the opportunity. We all know people like that deserve […]

“…Eight signs you’re working for a FAILING company…. (One that is up to NO-GOOD)…”

  Eight signs you’re working for a FAILING company…. (One that is up to “no-good.”) God was “kicked-out” of the Board Room two years ago. They cut out Christmas Bonus’s last year. The HVAC system is no-longer working. Your last two paychecks bounced. You’ve not seen your boss/owner in two weeks. The Boss’s Executive Assistant […]

“…Being calm, I think, contains an element of…. POWER…”

STAY CALM…..as in…C-A-L-M.  For me, I’ve been the “calm sort of guy,” 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… while everyone else is laughing [why, I can’t imagine], at best, I give a weak-smile.  Same with sadness… I don’t show […]

“…We have the ‘freedom’ to do whatever we darn-well please …or, Do We..?”

CHOICE…do we really have a choice?  Well, both, in the literal and biblical sense… we do.  First, we are made “in the Image of God.” This, alone, would give us “free-will.”  Then in Genesis: 16-17 – And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But […]

Here’s 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, and call her…. Tell her how much you LOVE her, how much she’s meant to you all these years, that you wish you could see […]

“…PLEASE….stop and smell the roses. Crossing the bar…comes all too quick… here today…. gone tomorrow…”

Most of you of read “my gibberish” are probably in the 30-50 range, some just getting started out in their careers and family; others approaching the “middle-years,” and maybe a few…who like me… are on the “down-side.” I am speaking mainly to those in the first category, and to some in the 2nd category… and […]

“…You might could say… that; I’ve found other ways of helping people without loaning money…”

I’ve always felt that one of the “major attributes” of a true LEADER is: COMPASSION. There would be some that would disagree…saying…that COMPASSION is a sign of weakness. I’m thinking back on my days in “serious leadership roles,” and reflecting on my own compassion during that time-frame. I’m pretty sure that I was COMPASSIONATE throughout […]
