I have been freed

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”

Christmas is now behind us and I hope yours was as good as ours was. Now we are in the final days of another year, a good time to reflect on the last twelve months, put them behind us and get ready…

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”


I have been concerned lately by some of the questions I either get or hear asked of someone else. One that really disturbed me some time ago was when I was asked why I put so much time in volunteering for a number of different organizations…

I have been given great gifts

“The best gift you can give is a hug: one size fits all and no one ever minds if you return it”

Let's enjoy the season

Have a magical holiday season.

I am off early this morning to my weekday workout after three days of answering phones at a radio station logging in contributions to the Salvation Army’s Christmas drive. My days at the station started at 5:30 AM and I am still worn out so I am going back into the files to send you another…

Thank You

“Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well”


We have talked about appreciation before but it is always worth revisiting for I am dismayed as to how little people seem to appreciate each other anymore. Too many seem to be too busy to even notice the…
