Ready to Win

Everyone of us failed at something today.

Leave it behind.

Start the new day ready to win!

I Built A Contraption

I enjoy bird watching on my back deck… to me it’s a form of meditation. It’s quite, peaceful and relaxing. That all changes when the bird feeders are empty though. The birds let me know. Loudly! Persistently! I’m pretty sure they think of it as their duty to let me know.

Last weekend I bought a new feeder. I set it up and filled it with seed. That will keep those birds satisfied until next weekend I figured. No dice… By Monday afternoon the squirrels had it empty. …

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
-Robert Frost

God’s People Leave Legacies

What will future generations say about you?

Did you stand, in spite of the pain, to break a long standing generational curse?

Or did you run because the pain got to be too much?

No one will blame you for running. Most people do. I hope you at least pray for future generations. That things don’t get worse.

Having the strength to stand is unusual. I want to be remembered as the one who decided to stand. The one who broke the chains of the past.

What’s your choice?
