We often only spend our energies to satisfy ourselves, rather than to serve others. Significance is not possible unless what we…Continue

Post with pictures or short one- or two-line posts with links that will take me someplace and allow me to read more if interested. Write about events with significance. Write your ideas…Continue

Everthing I know, everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark:
ONE: Don't miss the boat.
TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat. THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
FOUR: Stay Fit. When you're 60 (like Noah), someone may ask you to do something big.
FIVE: Don't listen to critics, just get on with the job that needs to be done.
SIX: Build your future on high ground.
