“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!
Is being right more important than being helpful? I know a lot about alcoholism & drug addiction… & I help a lot of people. But if someone were to prove my methods wrong, I would concede to that immediately, because I am far more concerned with you getting well & staying alive than I am with me being right. Humility is something that I was lacking most of my life… but these days, when push comes to shove, your life is far more important than my ego. The goal for today: be confident & strong… but know that humility is where real wisdom comes from! 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!
“You’ve got to find some way of saying it, without saying it” ~Duke Ellington. I love this quote! I write like that… everything I say can be applied to an individual’s life… the life of our nation… & humanity as a whole. For example: I shouldn’t spend more money than I have… neither should the White House… or the G20. The Principles that govern all life on earth are at the root of the things I write. The goal for today: share the tools, that fix ALL of our problems, with individuals in an attempt to change the world from ‘We the People’… up! Have a great day everybody!
There is a guaranteed method of avoiding problems. If I ask myself “If there is a God, would He want me to think, feel, or act, the way I’m about to?”… & then live up to the answer I get from Him… I’m guaranteed to not have a problem. For example: If there is a God, would He want me to love people… or hate them? We all know the right answer & now we can make an educated decision… hate & feel bad… or love & feel good. The goal for today: avoid problems by making ourselves consciously aware of what’s Right… & proactively doing it! Have a great day everybody!
