“… I’m not retiring, giving up, slowing down, or otherwise … standing still….”

I love to work.  I love to think.  I love to be on the move, to be creative, and on one or two occasions…even genius.  I hate being dormant, idle, stillness, and small-talk. I hate BIG BROTHER buggering my life; I hate entitlements, I hate it when 48% of the people take care of the other 52% of abled-body people (Genesis 3:17), and disdain voter EMPATHY. I want to be active, alert, and forceful.  I like deadlines, a shade of stress, a bit of ego, a smidgen of pride, and an abundance of results.  I’m not retiring, giving up, slowing down, or otherwise … standing still.  I like getting up early, staying late, going without lunch, and burning the candle at both ends.  I can do all of this without cussing, drinking, drugging, smoking, and being dis-respectful.  I enjoy day-dreaming, a wild imagination, counting sheep, simple math, and I enjoy writing BrOOKS-of-WISDOM, such as was gifted to me to do, by God.  And, believe it, or not, I still have plenty of time for PRAYER, meditation, reflection, LOVE, and an intense relationship with Our Lord God, Jesus Christ.  I love life, I love you, and I love the God of all Creation.  My order of IMPORTANCE is:  God, my Wife, My family, my Career, You, and then, me.  1 Corinthians 13:2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  Blessings…cjlb…4/3/14
