    A number of years ago, one of my daughters was a “secret shopper.”
    She actually got paid to go into restaurants and eat or clothing stores and shop. All she had to do was be inconspicuous as she observed the store’s employees.
    Then after leaving the store, she would write a report of her observations: “The salespeople seemed too busy talking to each other to pay attention to customers,” or “The server disappeared as soon as she brought my food and failed to suggest dessert.”

  • Trust in Him and ‘believe big’

    We often times go around life thinking small. And when we think small we develop a small attitude, small mind set and fail to try to do the BIG things.
    We do that with most things in life. We dream of big houses, big bonuses, big careers, but much of the time that is all it is, a dream. We do not put effort into achieving that which everyone says we cannot do. We settle for less.
    There are a lot of individuals who made a name for themselves because they believed big.
    Abraham Lincoln overcame many setbacks to become the most influential American President.

    Awhile back, I went to a 12-step meeting with a friend.
    I like to do that occasionally because the things they believe are applicable to anybody, even those who aren’t addicted to any particular substance.
    The first step says, “We admitted we were powerless over alcohol -- that our lives had become unmanageable.”
    I could substitute the words “cake” or “maple syrup,” “approval,” “control” or “fear” for “alcohol” and it would apply to me.

  • FAITH OR UNBELIEF


    I found an interesting fact during my Bible study yesterday.  I was reading in Matthew 8:10 where it tells us of a centurion with a servant in need of healing in his body.  
    This Roman centurion approached Jesus with this need and was shocked to find the response of Jesus.
    Our Lord told the man, “I will come and heal him.”  
    The centurion responded in humility and asked that Christ would “but speak the word only and my servant shall be healed.”

    After deep and serious thought, I think I have a solution for all the world’s major problems:
    Everybody stop.
    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.
    Protesters, go ahead and protest, but you don’t have to riot, so put down your bricks and rocks. Stop looting. Stop damaging people’s property. Stop shouting obscenities -- and clean up your litter on the streets.
    People need to stop their violence, beginning in the home. Stop beating your wife or your boyfriend or your kids. Stop getting drunk. Stop doing dope.

  • Through Jesus, death is undone

    I remember it like it was yesterday. I was 10 years old. I came home from school. My dad was home. Weird. He followed me into my bedroom sat on the bed and asked me to sit beside him. He then told me that my grandfather, his dad, had died of a massive heart attack.
    We had just spent a week with him and Grandma at Thanksgiving. I had gone hunting with him that week. But now he was gone. I would never see him again. I was devastated by this, my first experience with death.

    ...It’s an NBC drama on Tuesday nights that follows the Pearson family: three siblings -- Kevin, Kate and Randall -- and their parents, Jack and Rebecca.
    Actually, Kevin and Kate are two-thirds of a set of triplets. The third triplet, Kyle, died at birth.
    After Randall, born on the same day, is left at a fire station and brought to the hospital by a fireman, Jack and Rebecca adopt him and raise all three kids as the “Big Three.”
