THE GHOST of CHRISTMAS

The story of Christmas appears to get camouflaged by all the fanfare and the trappings such as Santa Claus, Christmas trees, gifts and commercialism. Oh, but, there are so many good movies just to name a few such as ‘The Miracle on 34th Street’. The Ghost of Christmas is not Ebenezer Scrooge or some fairyContinue reading “THE GHOST of CHRISTMAS”

What Keeps Us from Making Wise Decisions

We continue to live in a culture that screams to us for instant gratification or we get tempted to be impulsive. There are ‘no magic formulas’!

People are Different People are Unique People need to Care

The cities in America are booming with such diversity, ethnicity, and culture. I was in Boston, Jamaica Plain this week consulting for work.

All of a sudden your routine goes haywire. How amContinue reading “Absent from His Presence”

Listen to Constructive Criticism

If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise. Proverbs 15:31 NLT Have you ever met somebody that seems to know it all and always has an answer for everything? They have an “I’m right you’re wrong attitude” or just like to plain argue about anything and everything. That’s rightContinue reading “Listen to Constructive Criticism”

Perhaps you’re a daredevil and try to see how far you can get when that little orange gas tank lights up before you fill up. Have you been living off of liquidsContinue reading “Running on Empty”

When God Frustrates The Plans

Sometimes our journey in this life brings us a bump in the road, a curve ball, bad lemons, or just some rotten eggs. You know it’s a bad day when the light at the end of the tunnel are the lights of a locomotive train! Too often we can be quick to blame others orContinue reading “When God Frustrates The Plans”

Exceedingly Abundantly

Scenes like this will lower anybody’s blood pressure. This picture was taken on Martha’s Vineyard a few years ago. Im amazed how the Lord desires to bless us beyond what we could ever think or imagine, especially in the small things in life. Life is about taking risks, but you will never know what yourContinue reading “Exceedingly Abundantly”
