They are to be Honored and Memorialized

Memorial DaySpringtime is a lovely time of the year. The air is filled with the smells of blossoms and fresh cut grass. The comfortable temperatures entice and draw us to enjoy the outdoors. This weekend will be no different in those ways but you will have the added benefit of seeing many stars and stripes flapping in the breeze. Your family may take part in a parade or host a family picnic to recognize a special group of loved ones that you wish to remember. Regardless of the activities you participate in this weekend; I hope we all set aside time to celebrate this most righteous of holidays. For it is as a united Country that we should set aside our differences to come together as a whole to honor and memorialize those brave men and women who gave their all so that each of us can continued to live in freedom, liberty, and peace.

Personal & Professional Growth

Personal GrowthA good friend and I reminisced yesterday about a gentleman that changed our lives through one of his most powerful beliefs. As I now try to positively impact the lives of others, Charlie “Tremendous” Jones’ inspired character caused me to adapt that saying to include a third component; high moral and ethical character, to the statement.

I am positive he will give me a big hug when we meet again in Heaven. “What can I say Charlie, I love the Wisdom of Three!”

If this is my last post, I want all to know there was only one purpose for all that I have written; to have made a positive difference in the lives of others.

The Mother Cell

Mother'sLoveThe human species is an ever-changing creature. Created as a physical, mental and spiritual being; we live each day as a somewhat new entity.  Each day we change in multitude of ways; most of them occurring without us even noticing they are happening. In addition to the voluntary changes we make in our lives; our body goes through involuntary changes internally at a chemical and cellular level, externally our hair falls out and what stays grows longer.  On a mental level; our brain functions work and change around the clock, never resting.  On the spiritual side of the house; from moment to moment our faith and beliefs can change as we face challenging situations or joyful moments of wonder. Whether we are asleep or awake, it makes no difference; we are changing.  Continue reading “The Mother Cell”

One City, Two Strangers, Two Perceptions

Two Strangers One City Two PerceptionsOnce more we can experience the power of the Wisdom of Three as presented through the eyes of Wise King Solomon. He was a Master at the art of understanding the human condition long before psychology was a science.  This is one example of why.

“This is a tale of two strangers visiting the same city on the same day and the account of their perception of the people they encountered while there.

Saint Valentine

red-love-heart-valentines-day-concept-Every February 14th, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday?

Here are 2 different legends … Enjoy!

The first legend, and perhaps the best known, began in Rome, when the Emperor, Claudius II, was involved in many bloody and unpopular campaigns. “Claudius the Cruel” as he was called, was having a difficult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues. He believed that the reason was that Roman men did not want to leave their loves or families. So, he cancelled all marriages and engagements in Rome! Continue reading “The Legend of Valentine’s Day”

Happy New Year…New Me…New You!

As we bravely face a new year, we commonly indulge in the custom of being drawn to the image of the annual occasion to create a fresh start.   We seem to view this as a magical opportunity to transform those troublesome elements of our lives into the existence of our dreams.  Once a year, we feel empowered by the mystical rotation of the calendar at the stroke of midnight on January first; this key stimulant that we must have in order to hold fast to those future changes we desire at that precious moment in time.  No one can say that we are not a well trained people in the mastery of the art of monitoring progress through chronological tracking of good intentions.  So where do we fall short and why then do so many of us struggle each year with the same resolutions?    Continue reading “Happy New Year…New Me…New You!”
