Excuses Are Out the Window

The year 2011 is almost over and we’re about to cross over into the year 2012. So much has happened and there is so much yet to come. It would be so easy for us to become disenfranchised by the state of the economy, the job market and the level of unemployment, the housing market […]

Would You Be Ready?

We’ve all seen the impact of Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Google, and a host of many other businesses that have made great strides in the world in which we live and the influence it has had on our lives. As I reflect on this year and the coming year and the future of my life, what […]

Ants and Slugs

It can become very easy to become depressed during this time of year. With many people making holiday preparations, we tend to forget the elderly, those who have lost loved ones, their jobs, homes and other property, and countless other things that may induce depression for them. What’s worse is not seeing it creep up […]

Old Fashioned or Standard Bearer?

One of the hardest things for me to do is to admit that I have some thoughts and ideals that are old. Paradigms and traditions have their place, but knowing when what I believe is biblical, cultural or just a passing fad can be tricky at times. How do I balance being a standard bearer […]

Yes! The Prayer God Loves to Answer

The bible says that Jesus gave us the keys to the kingdom. In the book Yes! The Prayer God Loves to Answer, written by Don Nori, Sr., he reveals a crucial key that unlocks the door to destiny; his and ours. I found the vivid anecdotes amusing and made their points quite compelling.     […]

A Witness Everyday

I’ve been in many courtrooms over the years; mostly, serving as a juror whenever I’ve been summoned. In all those years I’ve come to observe many things. One key thing is that of the role that is played by the witness. As I watch many of them give their testimonies related to the cases, I […]

Teachable Moments

Time is such a tricky thing for most people. Even though everyone is allotted the same 24 hours, you may find yourself feeling as though someone else finds a way to get more out of their 24 hours than you. This is especially true for many who have children. Whether you’re working a regular 9 […]

It’s Just the Start.

  Have you ever taken the time to go by a commercial construction site or a building project of a residential community? I sure have. It always amazes me how it begins with a hole in the ground and winds up this great finished work of architectural genius.   While all of these awesome buildings […]

All Maxed Out

It’s not uncommon for us to become drained from the hustle and bustle of our everyday activities. We all have lives that seem to become a flurry of events as we take on more and more tasks in our family affairs, careers and ministries. When your calendar seems to have fewer empty spaces than full […]

What is it Worth to You?

In a day and age in which cash is king, many people really don’t consider the things that are of more value. I was thinking about this a few days ago as God was speaking to me about names. I’ve always known that a name can make all the difference in a person’s life.   […]
