After going around the drive-thru at a Burger King, I finally get to the window and the worker says, “You’re going to have to pull up and wait for us to bring your order out.” When you’re really hungry you don’t want to wait for your food. That’s the whole purpose of choosing a ‘Fast Food’ Restaurant! Waiting is so hard because it takes control away from you and places that control in the hands of someone else. I HATE having to depend on other people. The most excruciating pain in the world is not in the dentist’s chair. It’s…

When you apply for a job the first thing you do is read the Job Description. That’s the little paragraph which tells you what you’re going to be doing if you are hired.  Everything created has a job to do. Trees were designed to give off Oxygen. The sun was designed to radiate plants and provide light. The womb is designed to incubate babies. From appliances to professions, everything has a job to do. The Bible gives the specific job description of God but also for the Devil. It says (John 10:10) the enemy’s job is to kill, steal, and destroy. …

When you grow up in a religious home everything revolves around the church. Your whole life is centered around whatever activities the church has going on. In our home the church activities were superior over school functions. If they called for a PTA Meeting at the school on Mid-Week Bible Study Night, the school would miss my parents. If there was school basketball game at the same time of a church event we missed the basketball game. Needless to say, we grew up closer to our church friends than our school friends. That actually wasn’t a bad thing, though. In…

When you have a genuine heart it is hard to live carelessly. When you end relationships you actually consider the other person’s feelings and attempt to let them down easily. You probably care enoughto give your employer a two week notice before leaving. Most likely you have given your last dime when you needed it badly yourself. Yes. You’re probably the person who searches for a reason whenever someone stabs you in the back because that kind of evil doesn’t make sense to you. When someone says they need help, you don’t know why, but you throw on your cape…

In The 80’s you weren’t cool if you didn’t wear a Jheri Curl. Each morning you had to apply a lot of gook to your hair to keep it curly and throughout the day you had to spray activator on it to keep it fresh. By the end of the day there’d be so much activator, gel, and sweat in your hair that it would carry an odor.  With a curl you had to carry what they called a “curl bag” around with you. It was pretty much a thin shower cap. People didn’t want you to sit on their…

Do you remember going to K-Mart as a child? Many people may not remember but at one time Wal-Mart was not the ideal shopping center. It was K-Mart. I used to go to K-Mart every Friday when my dad paid us for our weekly responsibilities. Friday was my day to hit up K-Mart and buy the latest R&B tape. We didn’t have cds then and the tapes would normally cost like $22. Sometimes even more. Today, you can download a whole project for $9.99 on iTunes or Google Play. When Wal-Mart became more established K-Marts begin to vanish. Seems Wal-Mart…

Enough bad relationships and poor decisions will make you think you are crazy. In fact, most depressions are self inflicted. It is true. You can drive yourself crazy.  Sitting up all night wondering about the person who is cheating on you provokes you into misbehavior. Before you know it you are thinking and acting unlike yourself. Getting back at a person who has done you wrong takes a lot of angry thoughts. It only leaves you drained. Eventually, your actions will completely unlike you. What is the essence of crazy? Insane is mentally ill. Absurd is thinking beyond reason. A…

As kids we loved going to the grocery store with our Grandfather. He was an older man and he walked really slow. I mean… really slow. So, it was our routine to take his list and go through the store collecting the groceries for him. My brothers and I would have his whole list complete before he even made it to the second aisle. What do you call those coupon people? You know… the people who collect sale papers and compare the prices at every store… *thinking* … well, I don’t know what they are called but my brother, Robert,…

When you enjoy making others happy the worst thing you can experience is someone rejecting the kindness you have to offer. If you’re not careful you’ll break your back bending over backwards trying to please other people. Compassion is a great attribute. The world could be a much better place if more people cared enough about others to bring them a sense of hope. Sometimes, you probably feel like you are giving more to others than you get in return. That feeling is a very discouraging place to be. It’s hard to believe but it’s true… most people don’t consider…

For most people, all it takes is one bad week and it just spirals through every part of your life. One bad financial week can knock your whole month off. One bad month can knock a whole season off. One season of discomfort can set you back for a year. Before you know it, you’ve been trying to get back on track for years and it doesn’t seem like any progress is being made. Then, out of the blue… you give the world your middle finger and you just don’t care anymore. Despair can overcome the strongest person if it…

There is an obvious connection between an orange and orange juice, lemons and lemonade, apples and apple juice. Cranberry Juice doesn’t fall from the sky like morning dew. It comes from cranberries! Just about everything around us is a product made from something else. Orange Juice can’t taste like lemonade. It shouldn’t even look like lemonade. You’ve never seen yellow orange juice. The color yellow is so synonymous with Lemonade that if I see a yellow gallon in the juice section I will instantly think it’s lemonade before I even pick it up. Just imagine going down the Dairy Isle…

When you first meet someone you are introduced to who they are trying to be. As time goes by you meet who they really are.  There is a hunger in all of us to be received by others. We have to give each other credit for at least trying. However, trying to be better is not an activity you can turn on and off. It’s not a light switch. If becoming better doesn’t start in the heart it won’t last long outside the body. People are good at perpetrating to get what they want from you. Flaws are visible to…
