Every problem has exactly ONE definite, permanent, guaranteed solution. There are a million ways to patch a problem up on the surface, but there is only one way to fix a problem properly. If my car runs out of gas, I can push it, tow it, or coast it… but it’s still out of gas. Life works the same way. Once I realized that selfishness was the root cause of my unhappiness… I was excited! Why? Because then I knew for certain that the ONE & ONLY possible solution to my problem was unselfishness… there is no other! The goal for today: find the cause, do the opposite, problem solved… guaranteed! Have a great day everybody!
Veterans Day is about honoring all who have served this great nation. They are men & women who have voluntarily forfeited their own rights & freedoms, in an attempt to protect & defend everyone else’s. They are people who don’t just talk about God & Country… they feel patriotism in the hearts. It is a labor of love that can seldom be expressed in words. Veterans never really ask for anything in return for their service… but just because they didn’t ask, doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve our respect, honor & appreciation. The goal for today: know that all gave some & some gave all… & that the least we can do is say thank you! Have a great day everybody!Happy Veterans Day… & thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all who have served!
“God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.” ~Daniel Webster. Our loved & lost were so ready to guard & defend freedom that they laid down their lives for it. They proved through their actions that freedom for all, is infinitely more important than the survival of one. The goal for today: honor our fallen soldiers by applying the same “do or die” approach to our everyday lives. Let us be just as willing to do what’s Right in our states, cities, communities & homes. Let us live by the Happiness, Peace & Freedom that they so courageously gave their lives to provide us with. Today, truly honor their sacrifice by living Right! Happy Memorial Day! Have a great day everybody!
“I’m Irish, you’re German… but what makes us both Americans is The Constitution” ~from the movie Bridge of Spies. I never get a lot of support on these type of statements, so I thought I might explain. My posts are never political, they are patriotic… there is a difference. In my mind the difference is that The Constitution is the government of God & always good… politics is the government of man & could go either way. The one we choose to follow will dictate the future of this great nation. The goal for today: follow the Right Leader! Have a great day everybody!
Once upon a time there was an idea… a dream. That dream was America & it was built on an unshakeable foundation. A foundation of Freedom & even if this entire nation collapses, that foundation will stand strong. My beautiful fiancé got me a book for Easter… The Federalist Papers & it gives us a pretty good idea of how to properly build on top of that foundation. The goal for today: live square & level, fair & just; live balanced & stable, with faith & trust; live in a manner that you earn what you get… & let Freedom be the end result! Have a great day everybody!
“Selfishness—self-centeredness, that we think is the root of our troubles” ~Anon. Selfishness… the human disease. We are faced with many troubles in the world today & they are all rooted in selfishness. Our money troubles, relationship troubles, educational troubles, emotional troubles, I could go on & on & on… they are all rooted in selfishness. If only we cared about each other, if we could only see the true value in putting the needs of others first, if we could only love each other enough… then we could change the world. The goal for today: please, PLEASE, think about how your actions affect others! Have a great day everybody!
I believe that we are all born spiritually perfect, in the image & likeness of God… & then we learn how to live wrong. Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love are our hereditary traits… & then the world teaches us how to be fearful, dishonest, selfish & resentful. Fortunately, God gave us brains to use… & from the age of 12 on, we get to decide for ourselves how we will live. Every day we get to choose to either live by what God taught us… or what the world taught us. The goal for today: make the Right choice! Have a great day everybody!
