The Word

March 17, 2010 Leave a comment

Got a lot going on here… here’s The Word…

… on The Blog… I’ve received some very helpful insight on how this blog thing is going, and decided to try to take it to the next level, I’m finding already that it needs a few fresh coats of paint. At the same time, I wrote a comment to a post on Michael Hyatt’s blog, a guest post by John Saddington. John developed the Standard Theme for WordPress and was giving away 10 free copies to folks that replied to the post and let him know why they wanted a copy, and yours truly won one!! So I’m working double time (in my spare time when not being a Geologist), trying to keep up with writing as the Spirit moves me to, and working on getting the new and improved blog up to speed.

… and The Word (Category Spotlight)… one of the comments that I fielded about the blog is that it’s hard to find what I’m looking for. My blog, like many of them, discusses a few different subjects. They’re basically the things that I’m passionate about. So I decided to write a NEW SERIES of posts about the categories, or subjects, that I’ll be writing about. So here’s the first subject that I wanted to touch on: God’s Word, which is NOT going to be a category!! Why not? Well, I’m planning to make this a central theme of all the categories (Yahoo!!!).

stick with me here for a few more days, I’m planning to have the new blog up by Happy Monday Morning.

As always, your thoughts and encouragement are appreciated….

What Day is it Anyway?

March 15, 2010 1 comment

Kowa-bunga-lujah I love Mondays!!

I don’t have a favorite day of the week, but I really look forward to…

Sunday morning… serving, worship, Stanley Jr’s message, seeing the Lord’s love shine through the awesome people at Access Church, and bringing it. Most of the days of the week blend together for me, except for Sunday (remember Rule #4 !!)

Monday… YES!! The work week is here (please read more about Monday below… under Friday…)

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday… these three are a mix, nothing really noteworthy here, except: – I usually stop by to see Rachael and baby Nolan during the week, and keeping life in perspective is important.

Friday: The weekend is upon us! I wrote most of this on a Friday, at the end of the work week, and one of the things I’m fired up about on Friday is Monday… so what’s that say? I really enjoy what I do for a living, I love helping other people and the science that is involved. I believe that I’ve found a part of God’s purpose for me in my work, and that God’s love shines through me there.

Saturday… hanging out with friends, and weekend excursions.

There seem to be a few keys to enjoying each and every day… BALANCE… finding and living out your purpose… and living happily in the moment.

This blog will be forever indebted if you share your thoughts on your favorite day of the week, and why 🙂

The Elusive Buried Treasure…

March 10, 2010 1 comment

Think back to one of those “ahhh haaa moments”… when you continually stumbled on the same stepping stone in life, eluded by THE ONE THING that you wanted or thought you needed most… when all of a sudden the lights came on and you declared – “GADZOOKS!!! – I’ve finally figured it out.” Or, maybe it still is eluding you to this day…

Whatever “IT” is for you, and IT’S a little different for each of us, figuring it out is transforming.

We have no clue why this “IT” has eluded us for so very long but all of a sudden, when we figure it out, it becomes crystal clear. It’s like finding your buried treasure. To give you a great example, lots of folks will tell you when you’re single that love will find you when you’re not looking for it. Or, here’s another popular one, that I may not enjoy my work but I’m making A TON of money, so one day I’ll have this big huge pile of money and be really wealthy so I can retire and enjoy myself.

Hmmmm, well, here’s what I’m thinkin’…

To me, finding your IT is all about FOCUS, and FAITH… if “it” is eluding me, my focus is simply in the wrong place. So if I’m looking around for IT, whether “it’s” money, happiness, my soulmate, a job, more time to do what I enjoy, or whatever, and if my focus on IT is out of perspective, then I simply need to adjust my perspective, and have FAITH, being content in any and all circumstances. I know, easier said than done sometimes…  but remember… “store up for yourselves treasures in heaven… for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” -Matthew  6:19-21.

I think that part of the wisdom here too is that if we are content with the simple things in life, our blessings are given more freely and the walk is much more enjoyable. And, the bottom line is that whatever it is that eludes us, what we’re really seeking most is HAPPINESS, and that true joy, peace and happiness only comes from Him. So just focus on Him, and not IT, and you’ll be happy!!

Please share your thoughts on IT, finding IT, figuring IT out, or what IT is for you…
