Reminders on #MemorialDay / Reminder From @KSPrior

Today, Monday, May 28, 2018, is observed as Memorial Day for Americans. While today is that for me , it is also the day that my daughter becomes just 7 days old. While I remember to observe Memorial Day for those precious lives lost serving in the United States Armed Forces protecting my freedoms, I…

My Wise Council (and Why Everyone Should Get One)

Wisdom is necessary for life’s journey: if for no other reason than to give one rational assistance in avoiding taking unnecessary missteps.  For the thinking man, wisdom is applied knowledge after years of being tested in the field and found to be true because of the evidence that it works.  For the spiritual man, wisdom…

Be Better Than Me, My Son

My Baby Boy (5 Months Later)

I have heard people say that having your own child changes you.  However, oddly enough, I do not feel much different than before my son was born or even before I knew he would be born.  Now, if they mean having a baby changes you physically, then, yes, I can see that.  Truth be told:…

Waiting on My Future

There is a song by Dinah Washington that I like called: “What a Difference a Day Makes“.  The song itself has more to do with love than my post, but I use the title because of the words in the actual title.  What I mean is the title itself gives off a bit of truth:…
