My birthday to celebrate!

This year I'll be turning 37.  Wow! I'm glad that I'm getting older!

I was thinking of all the good that I've done to my friends and family.  As my life as it is:
  • Happily Married.
  • Working at a part time job.
  • No children yet.
  • Have great and wonderful friends!
  • A wonderful family!
  • A car to drive.
  • Being a great influence on my friends and family!
  • A few nicknames (the Bomb, Kdawg, Yoda)
  • Being an eternal, blood brother to my friends and family!
I've want to say thanks for being a great brother or sister to me.  That's what life is about.  Caring for each other and loving each other!  Help my brothers and sisters to come closer to Christ. We never know how long our life is here on Earth.  We just know that our life is short and to make the best of it.  I know that I'm not perfect and will never be 100% perfect, for that is a progression of a life time to achieve.  I look forward to what my next year of being 37 will be like.

100 years of Titanic Sinking

This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.  There has been memorials, DVDs, tours, etc. to commemorate the 100 years of the Titanic. 

Its amazing of how many people died, but what is better is that they were survivors that some helped others to survive that would have perished if not had been helped.  They should be given praise for the great work that they did. 

Amazing that even though its been 100 years we are still at shock and aw at what happened on that frightful night.  With it being in April, my birthday month, I always remember the sinking of the Titanic. 

From what can we learn from this tragedy.  That there will always be trials in our path.  We just have to either be grateful and learn from our trials or be the opposite and be distasteful about it and pout and not learn anything about ourselves. 

I don't know any of the passengers that had died or survived the Titanic personaly, though I praise for what they did for me in the future.  I think of them as my own family.  That they are not forgotten and will always be remembered.

The Gift of Ultimate

There is a great DVD out there for all to watch.  It will have a great affect on your life as well as on others.  This gift is not one that is wrapped in a box covered with wrapping paper, to where you unwrap it and find a piece of paper or some big gift inside of world material item.  Nor can this be the kind to order online, nor can it be bought in a store in person. 
This type of gift is one that has to be earned and once you know what it is then share it with others (family and friends) and even better yet even total strangers (as long as you do it in a safe way).  We all have a few, some or most all of these types of gifts.
These gifts are unique in that they vary from person to someone else.  "It is better to give, then to receive".  If you know what you gift is then feel free to share it to me.  Thanks. 
These Are the 12 Ultimate Gifts.
 1. The Gift of Work
 2. The Gift of Money
 3. The Gift of Friends
 4. The Gift of Learning
 5. The Gift of Problems
  6. The Gift of Family
  7. The Gift of Laughter
  8. The Gift of Dreams
  9. The Gift of Giving
10. The Gift of Gratitude
11. The Gift of a Day
12. The Gift of Love
The final gift is the Ultimate Gift! 
 My type of gifts that I'm sure I have are, if you agree with me let me know.  Thanks.

Win to pass not fail to lose.

I corrected the saying.  Now it should have it right.
There is an old saying," If you fail to plan, then plan to fail".  Meaning if you have a test coming up and you tell yourself that you won't pass it and that you will get an F instead of an A then you will.  The other way to look at it is if you tell yourself instead, "If you pass to plan, then plan to pass."   Then you will pass your test in life and see a better outlook on life.  You will get an A instead of an F. 
If you plan on failing then you might as well just give up, surrender, think there is no hope and pout and be sad.  
Where if you plan on passing or winning, don't give up, keep going, preserve there is hope and happiness.

Easter Message.

Once there was a town called Perfectville.  It’s where everyone lived in a perfect society.  No one ever made a mistake.  It was always a perfect meal, perfect romance, perfect family, perfect government, etc.  Because of it being perfect there was no need for lawyers, doctors, nurses, police officers, etc. There was always happiness no sadness or anger because everything was perfect. 
One day there was a very tiny idea, smaller than the smallest thing you can even see with your eye, which came into this town of Perfectville.  It came in the night when everyone was asleep and thinking of a perfect dream.  This idea just happened to land in a boy's mind in his sleep.  He didn't know it affect him till morning time.  For being perfect meant to get out of bed and get ready for the day in a perfect way.  He woke up and was supposed to stretch, but not yawn.  Somehow he did yawn.  The one thing though about this, is that he had his own room, so no one else knew he yawned but himself.  He thought "Oh no I did something that was not perfect; I should make sure I don't do anything that is an error in my life."  He then did everything the rest of the day perfect. 
The next morning the boy woke up from his perfect nap stretched his arms and yawned again.  Along with that yawn he decided to sleep in a few minutes longer than wake up.  So he went back to sleep.  Now that is something that was definite not the thing to do in Perfectville.  For when the time says to wake up you are supposed to get out of bed.  He woke up and realized the error he had done.  This time he knew he was no longer perfect but was a flaw in the community.  He got dressed and went downstairs to his perfect family.  Little did he know that as he sat down his flaws were starting to spread little by little? This boy had two parents who were perfect in everything.  They noticed that their son was somehow acting differently. 
"Son, are you okay?" said the father. 
"Yes, I'm fine!" said the boy. 
Since the boy was not perfect, he lied to his parents, which was not tolerated in Perfectville.  The parents then went about their business and leaving him to his own stuff.  The boy was starting to be a definite bad influence on others.  He did everything that was imperfect.  I won't go into details in to what bad things he did.  It would take too long.
The town held a meeting on what to do about this boy who was being a bad influence of the town.  They were thinking of kicking him out of town to go about his business elsewhere.  Some were in agreement and others not so agreed with that decision.  Though during the debate going on, one man stood up and was not known very well but had seen what the boy had done.  He spoke in a kind and gentle way, "I would take upon the sins of this boy upon myself and suffer that he would still be able to be with the community and not have to suffer in the cold world all by his lonesome.”  The town thought about this and was agreed. 
The next day the man went to the boy and had a deep conversation with him.  The boy cried for tears of joy and happiness.  Later in the day the man went and built himself a cross and carried it up a hill.  The cross was laid on the ground and the man put himself on the cross.  The men of the town then nailed his hands to the cross and his feet.  They raised the cross upright in the ground.  He suffered up on the cross and died a few short hours later.  There was a terrible storm that was never known in the land.  After the storm had passed the man was taken down and put into a tomb. 
The man was in the tomb for three days.  On the third day a few of the men/women went to see him from the tomb.  They opened the tomb and found out he was gone.  They had gone back to the town to tell the people that he was no longer there.  A short time later the man, appeared in front of the whole town and told them," I had suffered for the sins of the boy.  I have also suffered for the rest of the world as well so they may know that any sin they do I will take it upon myself so they don't have to suffer so much and now will go up to my Father to live up there in Heaven." 
This man was Jesus Christ.  He lived and did many miracles while here on Earth.  He was the only perfect person that has lived here on Earth.  We are that boy who has sin and didn't want to be kicked out of the village.  Jesus suffered our sins and bled from every pore and died on the cross.  So that we may be from sin and death and to be able to live again with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and be clean from our sins. 
Have a great Easter!

The question for today!

Today is April the 1st.  What does that mean?  Does it mean you put the socks on the wrong feet?  That you were supposed to exit your bed with your right leg or left leg first?  That you are supposed to wave to all the people that drive by your house and honk at you while wearing your pajamas? 

What is it?  Scroll down to see why you do these things on this day.
