gratitude is a good thing.

 This morning I woke with a grateful heart.  I’m grateful for the sunburn on my forehead from playing golf yesterday.  I’m thankful that I’m alive to feel the pain.  I’m grateful for my children and all of their oddities, like Caleb lying in the middle of the floor.  Life wouldn’t be normal is he wasn’t in the middle of the floor every morning.  I’m grateful for Oliver and his morning laziness.  I have to threaten him with punishment before he gets out of bed.  He LOVES to sleep.  But life wouldn’t be normal if he got up easily.  I’m grateful for my beautiful wife.  She always falls asleep while reading on the couch.  I get aggravated with her about this, but life wouldn’t be normal without her asleep on the couch.  I’m grateful for myself.  I don’t always agree with my attitude and at times my ego gets the best on me, but  life wouldn’t be normal for those who love me if I didn’t struggle with these issues.   Today, I am thankful for LIFE!!  Gosh, its 10:45 and Oliver is still asleep.  He needs to wake up so we can go play golf.  :)

even the chili dips

Today was fantastic!! I was able to play golf with my boys and some great friends. Can’t say I played great, but it was fun. I did, however, hole one in from about 140 yards to get an eagle. That was a first for me. Of course I acted like it was no big deal, but inwardly I was cutting back flips. I felt like a super star. What made today so memorable was I intentionally focused on each moment. The good shots, the bad ones and the on my goodness shots!! Now this might seem trivial to you, but it isn’t. How many times do we go through life just existing? Live an intentional life and enjoy the slices, hooks, worm burners and the chili dips because this is what makes you, you. Be alive in each moment and don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself. It’s all good. -peace

really…blood moons???

Blood Moons is the latest and nosiest theological discussion of late. It’s loud and obnoxious and I don’t understand our cultural (church) fascination with gloom and doom. Get over it. It’s fanciful chatter that doesn’t have any merit to our life. In my opinion the dooms day prophets are attempting to scare the populace into believing the “end” is near and thus you don’t need your money. They speak about the “end-time” revival and your money is needed to accomplish this task. So, they tell you to send your tithe and your seed will help reach lost souls. This jargon isn’t new. Don’t fall for it. Keep your money and put it to good use. Find a friend, family member or perhaps a stranger and help them with some groceries or buy their child a book bag for school. You want to help accomplish the mission of God on earth; find someone in need and meet it. That is GOOD NEWS and moves God, not blood moons! -peace

noah’s ark

So much chatter about the Noah’s Ark movie. Why? It’s a movie, right? Its purpose is to attract people and to make money, not to promote some theological posture. If you don’t want to see it, so be it, but don’t devalue the movie because some radical political junkie told you to. What has our world come to? If you decide to see that movie and are turned off by it, so be it, but that will be from your personal experience and not from a political pundit who has univocal interest (to captivate an audience and to make lots of money) as the producer of Noah’s Ark. Enough said! Peace!!

renewal

I take time each Friday to renew, regenerate and realign myself with my true self.  Because we deal with so much throughout the week we, at times, lose our sense of purpose and identity.  We must recapture it.  I don’t have a blueprint for you to follow to guide you back, but you do….it’s within.  Find it and listen!!  -obr
