Be passionate, tell stories, use personal examples

church donation envelope
Yesterday morning, like i always do, made a small change before handing it to our Son to put in the collection basket.

 

Be passionate, tell stories, use personal examples.

Our lead Pastor, Father John, has been with us for about two years. We are still getting to know him. Father Ennis retired after 50 years in the Priesthood. Father John has big shoes to fill.

Told Father John yesterday as we left Church, “Really enjoyed your story about Buddy (his dog).”

He used his personal story to add a real-life illustration for the powerful bond people and pets enjoy and thrive on.

The sermon was about the difference between a loving shepherd and a non-committed shepherd.

He also mentioned being an athlete at one time. We’ve never heard any sports analogies.

It hit me – seeing that side of him might help us see him as more real.

Who doesn’t like more real?

No promises…maybe some more real stories from my past.

True story about starting with a blank page

Michael Jr
After exploring the third floor, i stopped on the next floor down – the convention center floor. This was a delightful surprise.

As i continued to explore, stumbled upon this around the corner.

Everyone?

 

Stumbled upon this yesterday.

Wrote it in 2011…

A woman on the plane today spoke of not knowing what she wants to do with her life. So I suggested she start with a blank page, “God put me here to…”, and don’t stop writing until what you read makes you cry.

It is still my number one piece of advice when people are desperate to find their purpose in life.

If you’re not desperate, you won’t be motivated enough.

It worked for me in 2008.

Copied this from my Facebook update flashback

Wall mural on building
6:20pm…how lucky are those who believe in something with all their heart?

 

Years ago, an epiphany. i used to celebrate Easter once a year. But came to a realization i was cheating myself.

Christmas means nothing without Easter.

Yet the Easter Bunny can’t hold a candle to Santa.

i had created this script that Christmas was the most important “holiday”.

And then the epiphany…

We come to know the true meaning of Easter when we learn to celebrate it every day.

Whether you celebrate Easter or not, a sincere wish for you: Happy present moment.

Such an insignificant life in the big scheme of things

releasing household bug
At 6am yesterday, a small silverfish (bug) was in our master bathroom sink. The old me would have grabbed a tissue and quickly killed it. The new me caught it and released it outside. The blue paper is a post-it note.

 

Maybe it was too much concern.

i may never know for sure.

All i know is i felt better about myself for what i did.

PS. Thanks to our son (17) for inspiring me to .think .differently about bugs.
