If words have power, then put them to work!

Today my word is filled. It comes from the promises of Ephesians 1. If I lose sight of my goals for today, I'll recall that I'm filled to the measure of the fullness of God. It's an easy word that brings me back to my "goals" for today. Words are simple. Just pick one and… Continue reading If words have power, then put them to work!

When “stinkin’ thinking meets wisdom…”

The Monday after Thanksgiving, I felt like a fat failure. I'd not worked out in several days and had over indulged in turkey, dressing and a lot of other things. The "black cloud" of the panic to get my double work out in (punishing myself) asap was following me around. At the same time, I… Continue reading When “stinkin’ thinking meets wisdom…”

Please and thank you, for all the wrong reasons! Adult only though.

It did seem weird.  I'll admit. It was a big wave of the sincerest gratitude. I could see that he saw me by the way he went to the other side of the road and went much slower as I jogged by.

That fine line….

😇Over the years, I've met some amazing folks. Having interviewed people for years, often I think back to specific memories of one-liners that have shaped who I've become as a writer and speaker. John Croyle is a man with a magnetic personality. Having been very successful playing football at the University of Alabama, he also opened… Continue reading That fine line….
