The doorbell rang early one morning, just as I was about to take a shower. Oh no , I thought,and tried to ignore it. Three times the bell went, someone obviously needed me so I gave in reluctantly put on a dressing gown and went to answer the door. To my surprise it was my daughter, holding an hysterical two year old in her arms and with her five year old obviously upset at her brother's state. It turned...

How often do we judge people by the way they look? This week I was talking to some guys at Planet Fitness. They told me about their boss who went in to buy a new car. Little did the sales people know, but this man was worth a lot of money. The day he decided to buy his new car he walked in looking like a bum off the street. The first dealership he stopped in totally ignore him and treated...

My Father Holds No Ground

By Sam on September 01, 2017 / 88 views

I've always felt like he has never loved me so I don't love myself. I don't deserve to feel that way. I've built amazing things, have great relationships, my step dad and I have reconnected, and everything is falling in place. I just have to seize it in the moment. Realize I can do it and do it. Words mean nothing. Actions mean everything. Show up, be there for yourself and...

She Is 80; She Is Active

A student of mine called Su-May came to my ESL class to learn English in her 70s. For many senior people, 70 is the age to take things easy, and they feel it’s too late to learn. But Su-May doesn’t think so. Time is so valuable to her that she particularly cherishes any opportunity to learn the things that she missed on when she was young. Seven years have passed, and she is still in my class. She...

I had an odd experience in Wilmington, Delaware— I walked into the ladies bathroom at the train station, and saw a woman standing in her underwear at the sink. She appeared to be in her 20's. Not wanting to stare, I moved quickly into a stall thinking to myself, "Wow, what's that all about?" When I emerged from the stall, I noticed that the young woman was now dressed in a...

Not Everything Is Long Lasting

By Emery Allen on August 25, 2017 / 241 views

Not everything is long lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given...

My Husband Just Made Me Cry

I was sitting in our office staring at the first school schedule I've had in nearly 20 years and he came in with this stupid little smile on his face. He pulls up a chair next to me and asks me if he can hold my hand. I told him of course. He grabbed it and his smile widened. The kids loud as hell in the background. He's just sitting there smiling. I told him he was such a dork....

Never Stop Dating

By Demez White on August 22, 2017 / 158 views

My girlfriend told me that she'd had a bad day and needed cheering up. My bank account told me that going out wasn't an option. Sitting on my back porch I realized I had everything I needed right in front of me. Sometimes the best memories aren't about the money we spend or the trips we take. They're about putting a genuine smile on someone's face that you really care about. Money isn't...

Why Wait

When I was in college I had big dreams. I was going to be a psychologist, then a teacher, then a world renown speaker, and then a best selling author. I couldn’t make up my mind. Each dream seemed better than the last. Amongst them all, though, was my burning desire to make things better. In my young heart and naive mind I felt like I could change the world all by myself. And I couldn’t wait to get...

It Just Has To Exist

"We're all so good at recognizing what's shitty about something (and how we fix it) (criticism). We are all so bad at making something, so just make something bad and then criticize it until its good." It's a strange side of human intelligence. Computers, most animals and even aliens in movies can see someone do something and copy it quite well. But for humans, it's quite...

Who Do You Listen To?

By Princewill Iliya on August 17, 2017 / 116 views

More than perhaps anything else, who we listen to will determine the trajectory of our ministry. If we listen to godly, wise, smart people who have our best interest and that of the Kingdom at heart, it will leaven our lives and ministries. If we listen to the wrong people, we can expect a world of trouble. "Is best to just hear the negative voices only, but listen to positive voices...

They All Have A Story

By Rod Williams on August 16, 2017 / 1,677 views

I like boots. I have 14 pair, ranging from $1,600 handmade ostrich ropers with my initials on the side to a $49 pair of hiking boots. The funniest ones I have are a pair of old school western style pointy-toed boots. Most call them cockroach killers since the toe is so pointed I could kill a cockroach in a corner. As much as I’m on my feet, I want to be comfortable while staying a little fashionable, and...

Make A Difference

I love the story of the starfish on the beach. I have read it many times in several different forms over the years but I am always struck by its simple truth. One form of it goes like this: A man was walking down the beach one day when he saw a young boy coming towards him. Every few feet or so the boy would stop, bend down, and pick up a starfish. Then with a huge effort he would toss it back into the ocean....

By Gayathri M on August 14, 2017 / 258 views

People feel that there exists a world called heaven where God and angels exist. According to some,heaven is a place where everything is perfect and there is no chance of the word "worry" coming to our mind. But a close observation of our surroundings,might change this so called "perspective". There are many people who enter our life as angels in disguise. Their presence itself...
