“…My order of IMPORTANCE is: God… my Wife, My family, my Career, You, and then… me,,,”

".... I can do ANYTHING...!Will the “real” Charles Brooks please… stand up? I love to work. I love to think. I love to be on the move, to be creative, and on one or two occasions…I have found myself, even… to be… genius. I hate being dormant, idleness, stillness, and especially… small-talk. I hate BIG BROTHER buggering-up my life; I hate entitlements, I hate it when 48% of the people have to take care of the other 52%, and disdain voter EMPATHY. I care little for radio/TV entertainment… but enjoy The Hallmark Channel… especially this time of year.

I like being active, busy, alert, and forceful. I like deadlines, a shade of stress, admit to a bit of ego, a smidgen of pride, a sprinkle of stubbornness…and an abundance of results. I like getting up early, staying late, going without lunch, and burning the candle at both ends. I love real-estate, and nice cars. I love humor and “listening” to others tell “their story.” I like the “art of the deal,” and proving that I can do… all those ‘things’ that the naysayers think impossible.  Call me dull and corny….I live by the principle of… The Golden Rule.

I can do all of this without cussing, drinking, drugging, smoking… or being disrespectful. I enjoy dreaming, imagination gone wild, counting sheep, simple math, and I like writing BrOOKS-of-Wisdom. I enjoy today, learning from yesterday, and looking forward to tomorrow.

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.

Maybe a little… ‘smoke and mirrors’… but, that about sums ‘me’ up.

Blessings…cjlb…12/17/16.
