Just Did It

Published May 6, 2013

Have you ever said this line, or maybe you heard someone else say it? “I’m going to do it when . . . “. Thought you might.  We all say it. We say it when we are making plans. We even say it when we are going through life.  It can be completed like this, “I’ll do that when I get out of school”. Or how about, “I’ll do it when I find the right girl/boy and get married.” Or even, “I’ll do it when I retire.”   Did you know that this is not a copout? It’s not even […]

Easter Message

Published March 26, 2013

In a few short days we will have two holidays in a row. It begins early Friday morning. We have grown to know it as Good Friday. And I guess it is. Good for us that is.  This is much different from those words of terror that my mom used to use; “You won’t do that if you know what’s good for you.” I, like many of you reading this, grew up in an age that seemed to be so different from today. We had rules and boundaries. We made snap decisions in the face of angry parents, and wished […]
