We always know spring has arrived in Texas when the THUNDER ROLLS  through with the big storms.  Even though nobody looks forward to high winds, hail stones sometimes the size of tennis balls and possibility of a tornado it somehow becomes part of our normal.  It is kind of like living on the west coast, you are going to get a few earthquakes and it becomes normal in time.    What is interesting to me and is a reflection of the greater plan by our creator.  You could look at the obvious we need spring showers to bring may flowers, crops to sprout, trees to bud or a deeper thought is storms also bring renewal. 

Here is what I mean specifically just looking at a few things.  Lighting starts fires… fires burn trees and old forests… new growth begins because the sun c...

Have you ever had those days where is seems like the world is moving fast in the wrong direction and the things you dream about for yourself or your family just seem a long way off?  I would assume the answer is yes for most people at one time or another.  Now that I am well over 50 and able to look back at the flow of life I have a different perspective. Adding to that a strong faith in God and knowing what the Word of God says about life it certainly helps me see the big picture instead of a narrow view that can be created during a stressful event or things just generally going the wrong way.  Life is full of interesting challenges, journeys, adventures and roadblocks.  All of these create our life story.   What I know for sure is…. It is our choice to decide the how we will walk through and wit...

I recently said this to a millennial and they asked me what it meant?  So, I explained that squeezing the lemon meant getting every last drop out of the day!   Every day that goes by I am reminded life is short.  There are many people that I grew up with, enjoyed watching or listening too that are now gone.  Reminding me that we have but one life to live.  The things that will remain are the people you impact positively that live on!  It is your true legacy.

  • Look for reasons to love and not hate. 

  • Look for reasons to give not take. 

  • Look for reasons to share Christs love not rules and religion. 

  • Look for reasons to help not hurt.

  • Look for reasons to have patience not anger. 

  • Look for reasons to train and teach, don’t be silent and say let t...

This weekend at church I heard a great quote from our guest speaker Marcus Lamb.  He is the Founder of DayStar International the largest Christian TV channel in the world.  He was sharing about the many challenges DayStar had in becoming the leader in their field.    His quote was “Attitude is more consistent the words”.   Boom!!!  Drop the mic….  That pretty much says it all for me.  I have said for years that people are watching you.  They are watching you in life, business, family, etc.   What do you portray?  

Do they look at you and say:

  • “What a positive individual?”

  • “They have really handled adversity well!”

  • “Such a nice person.  A real pleasure to be around”

  • “They always make me feel better!”

Or it coul...

There are many reasons not to go to church. The best one I can come up with is people are there!  If people are involved there will be mistakes, offense, gossip, backbiting, affairs, criticism, lies and hate.      Remember why most people go to church, which is simply a gathering of people.   First out of obligation because your parents went and now you take your family.  Second because you feel like you need help or community.  Maybe there was a death, someone got really sick, divorce, you relocated and don’t know anyone, you feel like your life is not totally unfulfilled and you decided to go.  All good reasons to be in church.

Here is what I know after over four decades of attending church.  I have experienced everything I just stated good and ba...

Summer has always been special.  I remember when I was young and how much we enjoyed the last day of school and those 3 months off to do what we wanted. It use to be Memorial Day to Labor Day. We had time for adventure, go to the city pool, play baseball, make money mowing lawns, go to summer camp, summer vacation, etc.  Such great memories!  I still feel the same way.  I truly enjoy getting our pool ready for summer and planting flowers and tropical plants.  Cleaning everything up and getting ready for family pool time.  It’s is our gathering spot on the weekends.  We fire up the grille, eat watermelon, enjoy music and swim with the big red labs! 

So… what is the point?  The point is to make life what you want.  Choose to make things special!  We could choose to...

The quote you see in the caption is from Tommy Tenney and its a great quote. If there is one thing I have learned over the last 5 decade’s it is way better to apologize quickly and forgive wrongs swiftly then to carry around anger and bitterness.   What I have said literally hundreds of times “Who wants to be judged on their worst day?”  I know that I don’t want to be judged on some of my worst days and so glad I was given grace by my friends and family.   Here is what I know if you carry around unforgiveness and remain bitter over an offense it’s like drinking poison and hoping it kills the other person!!   There is a ton of medical data regarding what this does to you physically which is a supernatural correlation to your body.  Literally unforgiveness will take you to the grave early!  The bibl...

How do we pack it all in every day?   Get up take some time for self improvement, spend some time with God in the word and prayer, get in a quick workout,  head to work or your first meeting,  answer text, emails, check in on social media because the world might end if you don’t!  Get the kids to school, change the oil in the car,  purchase gifts for the next party,  shop for groceries, pick kids up and get them to practice,  head to church, check social media again Instagram needs to see your latest pic!!  I could go on and on and each of you could add a dozen activities to the list.   LIFE IS FAST and does not appear to be slowing down.  It is extremely important to make sure we focus every day on what is really life changing, what lines up with your core values.  Your spouse, your children, you...

Learning to be thankful in all things is very difficult at times.  As you get some years under your belt and some life situations you learn to see things through the lens of thankfulness!  You begin to see that God really does have you in his hand and has your best future in mind.  He can see the end from the beginning and we usually cannot.    There are times when it is easy to be thankful.  Those moments when you are overwhelmed by the love and generosity of others.  It can come during times to celebrate and comes in time of tragedy.    Yesterday it came to me during a time to celebrate and I was honestly overwhelmed with the love and gratitude extended toward me from people I know well and people I know through business or church.   The out pouring was beyond anything I deserve or could have po...

I am sure I am not the only one who likes Tim McGraw’s great song that says “ …always be humble and kind”.  These are great lyrics and I have found now after almost 5½ decades is there is no greater truth.   Being humble and kind is not always easy, but it is a choice. What I have noticed is most of the extremely successful people I know figure this out and at the peak of their success they are some of the most gracious and humble people I have met.  Matter a fact if you didn’t know who they were you would have no idea how successful they were!  Everyone likes recognition and wants to be noticed, but it is always better coming from someone else.  Sometimes you have to get some life under you belt to figure this out.  You have to have a few punches in the gut, a few setbacks to find out the world d...
