Positive Thinking

Millions of books have been written about positive thinking. Millions more will be written. And we know too well that popular saying, “Let go. Let God.” That sounds great until you have to actually do it.

Ceding our desire to control is scary. We want our lives to have happy endings, so we try to control outcomes. Controlling things we have no control over doesn’t work.

Our Creator gives us control over one thing: our attitude. Keep yours focused on whatever is good, right and noble. That’s better than any self-help book…

Memorial Day…

Memorial Day is a Remembrance Day established in 1868 that officially became a holiday in 1971. We are called to remember the brave men and women who died while serving our country in the military. At 3:00 p.m. local time, we are asked to observe a moment of silence in remembrance of them for their dedication and service to the United States. We have freedoms here in America that others don’t have. What some take for granted others cherish. It is because of our freedom that people can peaceably protest or fail to stand for the National Anthem. Whether we agree with these things or not isn’t the point. We have the freedom to choose.

So however you are spending the day, with family and friends, barbecuing or on the lake, I encourage you to take a moment at 3:00 to pause and reflect. We must #neverforget…

Entitlement…

Entitlement means you think you deserve something for just showing up. Life doesn’t work that way. Plus, we only place value in what we earn
