“…A great case in point, is when Steve Jobs was “forced-out” of his own company; but fortunately, was called back to service….”

Have you ever been involved in an orchestrated effort to “obstruct” someone else’s efforts, or their plan of action?  I’ve not been involved in terms of the “giving end,” but I have been involved in the “receiving end.”  It’s no fun; in fact it can be, and usually is….. Treacherous.  Typically, there re no rules of […]

“…If you want to influence someone about the ways of God… then, live life like you’re taking a walk with Him…”

Real life stories that teach you many things in life. Excellent reading!  These are based on true incidences both wonderful and inspirational.  1.  Today, when I slipped on the wet tile floor a boy in a wheelchair caught me before I slammed my head on the ground.

“…I say this, because I’ve spent a lifetime of being a tad-bit too stoic….”

Have you ever noticed how some people are so nice that sweetness just drips from their mouth?  There’s a fellow who sits behind me in Church, that when he greets me, and others, you can see that he genuinely means well, and is glad to see you.  Some others just stick out their hand and […]

“….Read John 14:27-29…..I love you both, Mother….”

  The Baggy Yellow Shirt         © 1981 By Patricia Lorenz……….Guest Author…. The baggy yellow shirt had long sleeves, four extra-large pockets trimmed in black thread and snaps up the front.  Not terribly attractive, but utilitarian without a doubt.  I found it in December 1963 during my freshman year in college when I was back home […]

“…and message, for today…is, how can we go about doing what were pre-disposed to do…?”

Where do you fit in?  Are you lofty, gentle and kind, arrogant, narcissi, over-whelming, rude, loving, narrow-minded, cowardly, prayerful, spiteful, charitable, conceited, humble, or hateful and demeaning?  Somewhere, in this narrative… you fit well, and are comfortable.  Somehow, though, we must combine some of these characteristics, in such a way, as to serve our fellow-man.  […]

“…Without going into medical and social issues, of which I am not qualified, I will simply say this…”

Some people function in open DEFIANCE as a matter of practice, rather than the exception.  He defied me by jumping out of a moving vehicle.  He defied management by liquidating the property without corporate approval.  He approved that contract in defiance of my authority.  He let the prisoner out of jail in defiance of a court […]

“….The term THEY can be used singularly when the “gender is unknown….”

“We have had some complaints about the hedge row in the front of the Club House, “they” think it should be left to natural growth, rather than trimmed back,” my boss said to me. I responded; “who is they?” He responded that “they” were a group of women, leaving me to guess who. Whenever he […]

“…How does one help another, when they cannot even afford to take care of themselves….?”

“I’m so depressed….” This is not such an unfamiliar phrase these days. With the economy doing such havoc on so many fronts; and therefore individuals; and with so many people, now, on the public dole…. There is no wonder that D-E-P-R-E-S-S-I-O-N is not contagious, or at least rampant. There is no industry that has not […]

“…Many people walk in and out of your life, but only love will leave footprints in your heart…”

The Cab Ride . . I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I walked to the door and knocked. ‘Just a minute’, answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor. . . The door opened. A small woman in her 90′s stood before […]

“…Some of us have allowed ourselves to be CHAINED to the past, because they either don’t understand, or refuse to accept…”

Focusing on the past closely predicts your future.  I have a dear friend that I’ve known since the 7th grade…. About 1953.  He lives, totally, in the 50’s and 60’s.  I don’t criticize him…no way, as he is wise, loyal, and a committed friend… what more could you ask for?  Never the less; he focuses […]
