I Wonder…

I wonder what will happen tomorrow…or the day after tomorrow. Will the ’causes’ that I agreed with have passed? Will those I disagreed with have failed? Will the candidates I voted for have won, or been defeated? Obviously, I don’t know that, and no one does-despite what all the conspiracy theorists out there say! One […]

Pots and Kettles

If you are…ahem…at least ‘middle aged’, like I am, you have heard the phrase, ‘That’s like the Pot calling the Kettle black’. It’s an idiom for hypocrisy–when person #1 accuses person #2 of doing the very thing that that person #1 is actually guilty of. I always wondered: Where do phrases like that come from? […]

Foolish or Wise? Which Will It Be?

There are no shortage of ‘opinions’ today. People seem to grow more ‘opinionated’ every day…and show it–with gusto! Social Media has ushered in a ‘coarsening’ of those opinions (in my opinion). ­čÖé Having an ‘opinion’ is not necessarily good…nor is it necessarily bad!

What Are YOU Here For?

Why do YOU exist? Most of us never think about this. We go through our days, our weeks, our months and our years doing pretty much the same thing. We get up, get ready for the day, grab a quick breakfast on the way to work or school, then come home, eat dinner, maybe watch […]

WHY? That is one question that we all answer, every day…although sometimes unconsciously. WHY do you do What you do? Simon Sinek wrote an excellent book about this,┬áStart With Why, and the premise is simple: If you’re going to lead people well, (including yourself) you need to…’start with Why’? Why should I do what you […]

Prayer: God’s Love Language

I was thinking the other day that, if God had a ‘primary’ love language, it would probably be Prayer. Many of you have heard about and/or read Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages. The idea behind this book is that we all have a primary ‘love language’ that resonates with us, and therefore, if I […]

We’ve All Got a Sickness…and There IS a Cure!

There are no shortage of disturbing things in our world today. But none are more disturbing than man’s ability to be cruel to fellow man, and the willingness of many to be vessels of evil toward others. The Las Vegas shooter killed 58 people, and injured hundreds. Chicago, Illinois has seen over 560 murders–so far […]
