The other day, Gloria and I were sitting down and having lunch with our youngest son.  As we were talking about a particular subject, I felt impressed by the Holy Spirit to say to him, “You have an unfair advantage in life.”  I’m going to share my thoughts concerning that, but I’m wondering, what do […]

It’s Your Move

Every day is a gift from God and we can’t take anything for granted. Every moment of life counts. As the Apostle Paul said, “To live is Christ, to die is gain.” Either way, we win. Every day we need to live life. Don’t let a day pass without Carpe Diem – seizing the day. […]

There are different perspectives we can have in life. One example is a “How can I?” mentality – How can I get this done? How can I overcome this? How can I or we get through this? In contrast, there are those who go through life stuck on “How come?” – How come this happened […]

Anything But Average

This last Super Bowl was anything but average. Every one of those athletes that performed in that game was anything but average. Usually, the team that wins is an above average team, and we can say that the Patriots are an above average team. Tom Brady is an above average quarterback. At the end of […]

Never Trade Future Blessings for Temporary Pleasures

I want to discuss bad trade deals. Sometimes in life, we make some pretty bad trade deals. When I was in grade school, I traded a tuna sandwich my mom had made for me for a classmate’s peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I don’t know about you, but that was a really bad choice on […]
