Today is a celebration of sorts…. I have completed 365 daily postings, which was a personal commitment that I made to myself, and to God, when I started this adventure on the internet, now known as BrOOKS-of-WISDOM. Many of you may recall that this idea was hatched on LINKEDIN, and I’m forever grateful for the platform that their website allowed me. I cannot tell you, in adequate words, how much I have enjoyed this opportunity to talk to you every day this past year. It has been, not only, rewarding to me personally, but more importantly, I believe it has made me, substantially, a better Christian, as well. I would NEVER suggest that everything that I’ve written about would, necessarily, be considered as music to your ears. But the good part, is, if anyone has been offended… they kept it to themselves. I’ve surely NEVER heard about it… not once. Thanks be to God. I’ve tried, very hard, to write about subjects that I thought to be interesting, thought provoking, informational, inspirational, and educational, encouraging, and most importantly… inspired, I believe, by His Majesty… Our Lord God, Jesus Christ. It has been my intention to speak to the Businessman, primarily, on his terms, but with my message of Hope, Happiness, Cooperation, Celebration, Joy, Happiness, and Thankfulness; and bring attention to the fact that God is the Great Teacher, Leader, and Motivator. It is my prayer that God will be asked to “return to the Boardrooms of Corporate America.” Thank you for listening, tolerating me, and offering me many words of salutation and encouragement… through all these many days and some 500 thousand words. As they say on the TV-comedy of the late 80’s….The Golden Girls.” ….”Thank you for being my friend.” God Bless each and everyone of you, your families, and all those you love and care for… cjlb… 7/16/14.
