Looking at the past brings you more of the same

rear-view-mirror-350-b
I often think when people look in the mirror,
it’s more like the rear view mirror in a car.
They’re always looking at what’s behind them.
In Life, the same. The things we’ve done,
that have happened – past experiences
(and ALL experiences are PASSED) – everything
that has happened up until now… is behind us.… —-> Continue…

What is your purpose? Does it show??

purpose-350

The subject of PURPOSE came up twice for me today,
so I felt compelled to take bit of time to pass it on to you.

Because I’m a giver like that  :)

One of the more intriguing and convicting questions
that I have often pondered where people are concerned
is whether they live a life of Purpose or a life of Pleasure.… —-> Continue…

Independence Day

Independence Day:liberty 220x165
a Declaration of Independence
is nothing unless we continue
to ACT independent

If our forefathers could see
what we have done with the
liberty their lives have paid for,
I wonder if those brave revolutionists
would ever have signed the
Declaration of Independence -
knowing that it would be
their death warrant.

His son, following in his father’s footsteps,

is trying to go over a few of his ideas with him.… —-> Continue…

Like moths to the flame – What’s your poison?

I SHOULD be drinking water right now,
given I’ve been out sick for the last 4 days.
I am not.  Instead, I’m drinking V8 Vfusion
vegetable & fruit juice.
Why? I like the flavor. Why not Kool Aid?
Because I’d rather have water than artificial
flavors, sugars, dyes and a variety of chemicals
that my body has to fight off the effects of.… —-> Continue…

NO GOOD DEED goes unpunished… Really?

homeless2-400w

I was reminded again tonight of something
that my brother said to me not too long ago.
“No good deed goes unpunished.”

I’ve heard that phrase before, but
haven’t really understood the meaning.

So tonight, as all good Americans do – I checked The Internet!… —-> Continue…

Count your blessings – don’t compare them…

It’s funny – the things we complain about.
2 days ago I was complaining about Facebook, yet it’s
been Facebook that has brought me in touch with some
of those who are my dearest friends and loved ones.
Found myself grumbling the other day now that I finally got
the Datsun running & on the road, and here comes the rain.… —-> Continue…
