I’m about to be Rich!

You will not believe my good fortune. Out of nowhere I received an email that is about to change my life. A man with a very distinguished name contacted me to assist him with an endeavor that promises to pay huge dividends. Something tragic happened to his family in the far away country of South […]

Do-Over

Looking back on childhood games, I can remember sometimes being at the end of a game of competition and the words “do-over” would be uttered. There was no explanation needed; both sides understood that the contest would be replayed with the requestor hoping for a different result. The good thing about a do-over is that […]

Chasing the Wrong Dream

It has been popular over the last few years to talk about chasing our dreams. Countless books have been written, seminars given and sermons preached about pursuing and achieving your dreams. It is a subject that all of us can relate to. Through the power of imagination we can see ourselves enjoying whatever it is […]

Haiti – What Can You Do?

The more we see about the earthquake in Haiti, the more we realize that this tragedy is bigger and more horrific than we first imagined. Words like “surreal” and “unbelievable” help summarize the reports we see and hear from the eye witnesses on the ground. For those who died in Haiti, the world did come […]

Christmas Time!

Holidays, and especially the Christmas season have always been special to me. My earliest memories of Christmas still bring a warm sensation as I relive those happy times as a child.

It is not that the darkness changed anything physically about our surroundings. What was under the bed when the lights were […]

Go Outside and Play!

I cannot count the many times I heard those words from my mother. They were usually spoken with a slightly elevated voice that indicated this was a command and not a suggestion.  My siblings and I must have gotten those words of instruction at the same time our neighborhood friends were hearing them from their […]

Expand My Territory…Really?

I do like the sound of that – Expand My Territory. I can see myself now on top of the world. It has been a long time in coming and now is just as good a time as any. I can imagine myself with success in all avenues of my life; social, financial, personal and […]

Don’t Quit Now

The crowd must have been massive. To have someone in your town, walking through your streets, who was the subject of interest for many generations, was special. Not only was He walking through town with His executive team, He was changing lives in the process. In a moment of time people were realizing miracles in […]

I Was Wrong

I should have known better. It’s not the first time I’ve made this mistake.  You would think after all this time I would have learned my lesson. I told myself that I would not make this same mistake again. Yet, here I am, guilty again. When will I ever learn?!  I know you’re going to […]
