What catches your eye, makes you pause, provides a laugh, an “aha moment”, an insight, a doubt, or a sign?
Are these things even on your radar? Probably, if you’re like most people. This car was about a soccer field away from the Scout Store, where I was sitting on the steps with Cooper (our Dog).
Some people wear the Jesus bracelet WWJD, the crucifix, have the Jesus Loves You bumper sticker. And then there’s the car. Who knew?

Which should cover all of us, can we find time to pray for others today?
Last week, a friend was very down about the way he felt he was being treated. And then he asked,
“Do you have any advice?”
I smiled humbly and said,
“Focus on other people. Do to them that which you wish they’d do for you”.
It’s an overwhelming paradox, isn’t it, that what we want from others we so blindly withhold from them?

Joy in dying? Is there Joy in death?
There certainly is
Joy in birth and obviously Joy in being born. Right?
In the past 30 days, I’ve been exposed to nearly one dozen deaths. And these deaths have involved people close to me, or people close to people I’m close to. Ya with me?
Just yesterday, a good friend told me how peaceful the death of her family member was.
It started with tragic news, and there was little time to accept and deal with the impending reality.
And yet in the end, she spoke of it being Peaceful. Joyful.
Perhaps, with a little (or a lot) planning, death will be something we don’t fear, but something we view as simply part of life. Not to be feared, but to be embraced.
Maybe then we can look forward to it. Joyfully.

Because my mind works in mysterious ways, this acronym could also have a second meaning:
What would jeff do? No one is familiar with this.
That’s okay. As long as it means something to me (
everyday), then the odds increase that better choices are made. One day at a time. Always an eye on the future. Always a reflection on the past. But mostly, carpe diem.
What do you do every day, to get and stay focused – in the moment to moment opportunities that today brings you?
You are preparing for this TODAY, right?
