diminishing returns

Thank you God for the roof over my head, a bed to sleep in, food on my table and shoes on my feet. Forgive me if I ever start to complain and forget my great blessings. When your life reaches a point of diminishing returns the time has come to decide what kind of life…

Some days inspiring someone else is impossible, because it seems impossible to be inspired. Is this depression? Sooner or later most of us experience some…

who are ‘they’ ?

Have you noticed how many times lately we’re told “they” have said, (or mandated) this or that? A few days ago I decided to ask God to show me exactly who “THEY” are. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will…
