Stream Of Consciousness

November 10, 2009

9:30AM (exactly)

Dropped our son off at school

Late work schedule today – morning free

Sitting in my 20 year-old car, Macbook Pro on my lap

Back seat, door open, windy day

Z88.3 medium loud on the radio

Contemporary Christian Music – “Safe for the little Ears

Please pray for Kevin DeGiamamrino, his wife and child – Kevin is in Houston, again, for another Brain cancer surgery

Please pray for my Family

I’m praying for yours

Forgive the length of this post, I think

Pray for World Peace, an end to hunger, poverty, abortion, injustice, discrimination, greed

Go easy on yourself if you are really trying hard

Kick your own butt if you are wallowing in self-pity

Pray without ceasing – in everything give thanks

Consider donating to ZRadio – listening to it now

Can’t imagine life without the Z

Surrender. Self Control. Service.

Blogging to make a difference – passion, purpose, humility

Impossible is nothing

In Everything, Give…

In everything, give thanks. Every day.

I’m thankful:

  • for being insanely busy
  • for writing five daily blogs
  • for traveling without my family
  • for having writer’s block

Saying it, and not meaning it, is the worst example we can set for people looking to us for a role model. For someone who wants to believe that sacred words and thoughts are more than just words or thoughts.

People are looking for someone who walks the talk, as we say in America. Someone who practices what they preach.

I keep looking for that person in the mirror. Still coming up short. And I’m thankful for that too. I’m also thankful that I keep trying, and after 50 years, still have not given up.

Is Today The Day?

Is it?

Is today the day you do the thing you’ve been wanting to do, but haven’t found the courage?

Do what you fear and the death of that fear is certain.

If not today, when?

Seriously. Carpe diem. 🙂

Try

That’s all we can do really, isn’t it? Try.

Seems simple enough. Just try.

Try to do what?

Try to do your best. To be a good and decent person, using a moral compass as our guide.

jeff noel.org is one of the ways I try to practice what I preach. But you already knew that, right?

PS. (gulp) How do you think I’m doing?

Has The Door Been Opened?

Maybe. I hope so. Ever have something that’s been sort of nagging at you? Something important? Some critical piece of the puzzle?

Me too. And often (not always), what we seek is an opportunity (an ice-breaker) to open the door.

I think it happened last night. Thanks to my wife for being a positive catalyst.

Now it’s up to me to push the door open a little wider. Please pray that I’ll have the wisdom to demonstrate compassion as well as courage. And I’ll do the same for you. Carpe diem.
