"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?...Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly;" 2 Cor 9:24-26

“Adore God. Reverence and cherish your parents. Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself. Be just. Be true. Murmur not at the ways of Providence. So shall the life into which you have entered be the portal to one of eternal and ineffable bliss.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to Thomas Jefferson Smith, 1825

How To Have Enough Time

(At least according to Thomas Jefferson.)

“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing. And that you may be always doing good, my dear, is the ardent prayer of yours affectionately.” -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Martha Jefferson, 1787

This is good advice. We would do well to follow it.

Loser? Winner!

“People don’t seem to realize how often you have to come in second in order to finish first. I’ve never met a winner who hadn’t learned to be a loser.” Jack Nicklaus

I really like this quote. I want to be a winner and I’ve been learning to be a loser for years. There is still hope for me. There is also hope for you if you feel like a loser. Keep going you can be a winner!

Who are you?

“Priorities are a clear image of who you are; they declare your innermost feelings to the world. If you want to know if a person is primarily involved in spiritual pursuits or worldly pursuits, all you have to do is observe what comes first in his life. When he wakes up in the morning, does he rush to check his email [fb?], or does he rush to pray?” Y. Frand

What do your priorities say about you?

“To say you are discouraged is to say you are without courage.

Are you truly out of courage?”

A friend wrote this today. It struck me. I often feel discouraged, but I want to be know as a person of courage. When I feel discouraged, I need to find the courage that is in me. Do not become discouraged. Be courageous!
