The State of the Union

Tonight most of us will watch as the President delivers the State of the Union address to congress. What will we hear? Will we be encouraged or discouraged? Placated or enraged? Will we feel frustration or accomplishment? Will we hear truth or untruth? What is the state of our union?

Resolutions? Time Is Not On Your Side

According to Statisticsbrain 21% of us resolved to losing weight, 17% of us want to make life improvements and do more good deeds and 27% of us did not maintain our resolutions through the first week of January. How are you doing?

If you are experiencing success, let me encourage you to hang in there because almost half of us will continue here

Life is a series of changes and there is always something about ourselves that we’d like to change for the better. However, the reality is that we won’t make the changes we need to make until we are ready to keep reading here

Getting to Know Daddy

post242pic1This precious little girl has known her daddy since she was born. In her brief life (less than seven months), she has learned a lot about this man whom she adores.

She has learned that he is trustworthy. He always holds her up when she tries to stand. He carries her wherever he wants her to go. He shows her new and exciting things. He always comes home. She knows she is safe with him.

This is the man of her dreams. In the next few years, she continue reading here
