One Solution

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!

Thank You!

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!

There are 3 sides to everything… the left, the right & the middle. Watching tv last night someone was dying of an illness & said… “I don’t believe in heaven because if I believe in heaven, then I have to believe in God; and if I believe in God, then I have to believe that He did this to me. I would rather believe it’s all random.” The extreme left says God did this to you. The extreme right says there is no God. But maybe there is a healthy range of sanity in the middle that says… there is a God, but He didn’t cause this. Maybe… just maybe… it wasn’t God’s idea to take a plant, dry it out, crush it up, light it on fire, and inhale it. The goal for today: find the 3rd side of every story… & at least consider it! Have a great day everybody!

The Right Leader

“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!

The Wisdom Of Humility

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!

Unshakeable Foundation

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!

Selfish

“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!
