Winston Churchill said: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” We are 21 days into the “Lord’s Table” and I pray that you are doing your best to work towards success, but if you, like myself, missed some days it’s not too late to start again. TheContinue reading “Success is not final, Failure is not Fatal”
The nature of living in a fallen world means that we will frequently be tempted to lead out of pride and fear.

I believe that Scripture teaches us God’s will for us in all things. Having said that, 1 Corinthians 10:31 (AMP) is my theme: So then, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of [our great] God. This time, it’s not to have others admire me, to look good inContinue reading “Proper Motivation”
To my two Firsts; My first born daughter and granddaughter, I say thank you for inviting me to participate with you both on this special step in all our lives.

Life seems to be more precious now than ever. Precious and valuable is every moment that I have the gift of life. This gift comes from our Father in heaven.
