Good morning: What do you need? Would the list fill a page or more? Would it read something like this: I need vacation time, a fatter paycheck, new clothes for fall, a better car, less debt, a bigger house, fun things to do, etc.? If we have all these unfulfilled “needs,” what does that say…

Good morning: Do you know what your friends are saying about you? I’m not suggesting that they’re gossiping behind your back or posting comments about you this morning on Facebook. But our friends do say a great deal about us just by being our friends. The ancient Greek storyteller Aesop is credited with the moral:…

Good morning, It happens just as I’m dozing off to sleep. The question crosses my mind, “Did I remember to lock the doors?” I tell myself, “Sure I did. I always do.” But doubt keeps nagging me until finally I crawl out of bed to check. Most of the time, everything is locked up just…

Good morning: In 1936 a salesman named Dale Carnegie authored a book titled, “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” It quickly became a bestseller which remains popular even today. Millions of people have applied its principles to help them in their personal and professional lives. After all, who doesn’t want friends and greater confidence…

Good morning: Ready for a weekend of coast-to-coast celebrations? I think many of us might say that the Fourth of July is our favorite national holiday. It comes during the warm days of summer.

Good morning: The old saying goes, “Patience is a virtue.” That may be true, but it seems like a dying virtue. Test yourself. How patient are you? Are you content to wait two hours for dinner to bake in the oven or does 30 seconds in the microwave feel like a week? When the car…

Good morning: They’re called ultramarathons or sometimes just “ultras,”  running events which are 50-100 miles or more in length, often meaning a minimum of 24 sleepless hours spent constantly moving. I can’t imagine how anyone does that or would even want to. Yet thousands compete in these races every year. It certainly requires training and…

Good morning: No matter how much someone dislikes school or studying, almost everyone would admit that learning new things and making fresh discoveries can be very satisfying. If we completely stopped learning and were never surprised by new things around us, life would be extremely boring. There is a feeling of accomplishment after figuring out…

Good Morning, Moses was at the end of his rope. Complaining about their lack of meat in the wilderness, the people of Israel were on the verge of mutiny. The burdens of leadership were taking their toll. Moses cried out to the Lord, “Why have you brought this trouble on your servant…Where can I get…

Good morning: Solomon writes in Proverbs 16:18, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” All of us can relate to that.
