You can’t just sit and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You’ve got to get out there and make it happen for yourself


Developing a Solid Foundation

solid foundation

I’m not a home builder but I do know enough about building to know that you need a good solid foundation or your home will eventually collapse. The same is true with life. The storms of life can throw all kinds of things at you. We need to be able to weather all of the storms that come our way;Read the Rest…

Mike Saturday / SendOutCards

Everyday before school officially begins, I meet with my entire student body (all 95 students). We do the Pledge of Allegiance, morning announcements and at the end of the announcements we do the weeks “I AM” statement. For example, beginning on the first week of the school year, I wanted the students to understand the importance of what the yearRead the Rest…


The Law Of Motion

th

Sir Isaac Newton’s First Law of Motion is this: Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. To tell you I have a complete understanding of Physics would be, well, a lie. The truth is, when I was in my first year of collegeRead the Rest…


Hitting 300

Baseball season is winding down.  Is your team still in the race?  Mines not!  If your team is, I hope they win! I was looking at the batting averages of all major league baseball players. Currently there are 25 players hitting over .300. What does that mean? Every time one of these players gets up to the plate, the oddsRead the Rest…

Times are still challenging for people. I heard this morning that unemployment is on the increase – again. People are still loosing jobs or taking pay cuts. It’s been tough on families for several years and it doesn’t seem like the general economy is anywhere near a rebound. Yes, the federal government is looking at shutting down; again! I haveRead the Rest…

I Hope You Dance!

I-hope-you-dance

I’ve always found it truly amazing where we find our inspiration at times. Today was one of those days. I was in the cafeteria eating lunch with a couple of my second grade girls. One of the girls had a shirt on talking about dancing. It got me thinking of the song by Lee Ann Womack, “I Hope You Dance.”Read the Rest…


Fishing With The Right Bait

Mike Saturday / SendOutCards

The definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again expecting to get different results. I’m sure you’ve heard that definition before. Fishing. I love to fish with my son. Unfortunately we don’t get to fish together as often as we use to. Time goes by. Fortunately we are very close. I don’t have to worry about loosingRead the Rest…

First of all, as this post unfolds, I want you to know up front that it is not my intention to offend anyone. That’s not the purpose. Here’s the story. The other day my son was out for a jog with a bunch of guys from work. They weren’t running along the road but on a trail through the woods.Read the Rest…


Iron Sharpens Iron

Iron

Be the Iron Your Organization Needs! It says in the book of Proverbs 27:17, “Just as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” One of the greatest kings of all times wrote this saying as well as many others. Solomon understood (he is credited to be the wisest man to ever live) the dynamics of human relations. He knewRead the Rest…
