PROMISES

It is not the promises we make that count…

It is the promises we keep that matter most.

Someone is counting on you today. Don’t disappoint them. You can make a difference in their life if you are willing to try!

BASEBALL ISN’T JUST A GAME

With the Little League World Series #LLWS in full swing, the hopes and dreams of young players, coaches, parents, grandparents, and friends are on a roller-coaster ride of emotions—enjoy every minute of the journey because…

Baseball isn’t just a game. It is life being played out on a field… a field of dreams… on diamonds of green, where players pursuing their dreams try to be the best they can be on the grandest stage of all. Where men become boys and boys become men, all speaking one universal language without uttering a single word.

The coach rubs an arm, touches his nose, grabs an ear, and rubs his belt buckle, sending a secret code to the players. The steely-eyed master in the dugout has issued the silent command for all to follow. The nine players on the field know the code, and the play is on. They all understand what to do and have faith each will do his job. Individual parts functioning like a well-oiled machine… working together in harmony for the good of one thing—the team.

The pitcher stands on the mound, receives the sign, and starts his windup. What follows is like poetry in motion. To the fans, with their fingers crossed, it is action suspended in time, all waiting patiently to see what happens next.

It is a game and life coexisting in time, teaching life lessons that will be remembered by all who dare stand on the green diamonds. The lessons that will help build the character necessary to handle life’s hurdles in the future.

Let the game begin!

HAVE YOU UNWRAPPED YOUR GIFT?

 

The filter for one’s
thoughts prior to
speaking is a gift
that far too many
people have not yet
unwrapped.

 

 

Have you unwrapped your gift? I bet you know some folks who have not yet unwrapped their gift.

God bless those who have.

TRUTH CAN SET YOU FREE

It takes courage to ask questions when the answers may hurt deeply, but it is better to know the truth and move on than to live in a fantasy world fearing what may not even exist. The truth, good or bad, can set you free.

Seek the truth and be blessed,

GIVING THANKS FOR THE LOVE OF MY LIFE

I was fortunate to find the love of my life at a VERY young age and have been blessed for fifty years with my best friend who is also my wife. I’ve watched the splendor of fall each of those years and none compare to the love we share.

loveweshare2

Leaves of many colors danced in harmony
as the cool fall breeze gently kissed each one.
No music, no sound, but it was poetry in motion
reminding me of nights I held you tight and we
continued dancing long after the music was silent.
Two hearts beating like drums kept us swaying
until dawn’s early light. For the love we share is
more beautiful than the splendor of leaves in fall.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL !

TEACH CHILDREN TO LOVE

“We come into this world
without knowledge of
love or hate. We learn
such things as we grow
by watching the actions
and hearing the words
of others around us.
What you teach children
is up to you, but I hope
you are teaching them
to love others.”
