Ash Wednesday And Lent

The Road To Easter
The Road To Easter

Ash Wednesday and Lent.

Happens year after year around this time.

How many of us forgot?

How many of us didn’t forget, but were simply “going through the motions”?

Easter is the most important day in the life of a Christian.

Christmas is critical, but loses all meaning without Easter.

You have thought of that, right?

Was It Worth It?

A Miracle, really.
A Miracle, really.

Life provides no guarantees except the proverbial “death & taxes“.

So, was all the effort, all those weekends, all those years worth it?

Um, yes.

You Can Do This jeff

Not Sure I Can Do This
Not Sure I Can Do This

Two days ago, you heard, “I’m not sure I can do this.”

Today, back at it to see if it can be done.

We scoured the area north, south, east and west of Disney World, looking for the proverbial American Dream, a nice house with a big back yard.

We sacrificed many things to pursue the American Dream. The house we were living in at the time was 30 miles from Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where I was working.

Hey, did I mention that we could only afford one car and Cheryl used it? How did I get to work? Great question. I rode my bicycle. We eventually got a second car, but not for a couple years.

Anyway, back to the point. We followed one dead-end path after another, like many couples do.

We never gave up. Although in hind sight, it may have been the smart thing to do. The clock was ticking. We were missing out on some things others don’t miss out on.

Time Talent Treasure = Stewardship

Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure.

Seems pretty simple. Three things. Important things. Things we all have. Things we can all share.

But do we?

Statistics show that only a small percentage rise above and volunteer in a sacrificial way.

Why? Why not?

Things that make you go, hmmmm……

July 4 – Blessed Beyond Measure

July 4 – Blessed beyond measure.

When you really stop and think about what this day stands for, what sacrifices have been made, and the delicate balance the future holds for it, you could almost drop to your knees and thank God there are people who put their lives on the line every single day to protect what is such a blessing.

We are indeed blessed beyond measure. Today is an official reminder of that.
