A Single Question:

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
-George Santayana

What does this statement mean to you? Post a quick response...I will accept anons.

It is a much more complicated statement than you think. I will explain it in my next post.

What do you do when you are alone?

STOP! Please don't answer that question! I really don't want to know.
But think about this: Even when you feel alone, when you think no one else is around...God is. Remember that when you are making decisions in your life. Whether you acknowledge it or not He is there.

Kinda puts a different spin on the question of "What is the right thing to do?" huh.

But also remember: When you feel all alone, when you think that no one else cares...God is there.

Kinda puts a different spin on the statement: "No one really cares about me!"

Whether you believe in God or not, He has a plan for you. Whether you like it or not.

Consistency is something that we all depend on. If someone is consistant in their thoughts, words and actions one thing that leads to is trust.

Trust is one thing that a good relationship is based upon. Communication is the other. The two kind of go hand in hand.

If someone communicates one message to you, yet they act in a contrary manner to what they you trust them? Should you trust them?

There are people that I have met in my life that would be willing to tell me anything in order to gain my approval, regardless of whether it is true. Things begin to total up incorrectly very quickly.

What constitutes a well balanced relationship to you? Would you be willing to stay with an untrustworthy person? How about work for an untrustworthy person?

Just for the record....

I would like all two of you that read this that disagreeing with something is NOT the same as "bashing" someone. It has been far too long since good morals and good choices have been on the rise in this country. We as Americans should be intelligent enough to have a discussion without "Because." being an answer.

This will not be a daily thing or a weekly deal, but over the next few months I will be splattering a few posts in here that will make you think. You will probably not agree with everything..or anything that I have to say but I invite you to comment. I invite you to discuss. Regardless of political affiliation, we as Americans need to get it together. It is not just the house and senate that need to be bi partisan, but we as the people have that call too. I hope and pray that our new President acts in line with his words and that they are not just political fluff. There have been a plethora of great speakers throughout history....not all of them have been good.

To President Obama:

This will be a quick post, but I need to get going on my new years (now new 11 month) resolution.
Today was a historic day for all Americans. Today Barack Hussien Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America. Whatever your political affiliation or personal opinions this is a huge for America, for all Americans.

That being said, today someone asked me what I would say if I were to write a letter to our new President. Keep in mind that I won't write this letter for many reasons: I'm lazy or I'm too busy or I'm too chicken or blah..blah.. Anyways. If I were to write one it would go something like this:

Dear President Obama:

I pray that you are the person and become the President that your supporters believe you to be. I, like many Americans hope that you hold to your word and transcend the political walls. The word "change" can represent many things: hope or advancement, or failure or take your pick of so many words. As you take on the mantel of the Presidency, arguably the single-most powerful position on this Earth, I hope that you remember what you represent to us as an American people as you make the decisions that you will have to make. For the past two weeks I have prayed for you, I have prayed for the United States and I look forward to the promise that you represent for the next four years. Today you became the leader of the free world and pretty, well-spoken words will take a back seat to your actions. I hope that you seek God when you are set with tough decision, as those decisions impact us all. I pray that at the end of your term you can in good consciousness look back and see your "Yes we can!" slogan turn into "Yes, we did!".
I will do my best to support you, to not bash you. I promise to yell at the top of my lungs when I disagree, but you are now my President and I wish you the best of success. I did not vote for you, but I will pray for you to make the correct, righteous decisions that will drive this country forward. I sincerely pray that you change my opinion of you and that you do right with your power.

Is it me or is Facebook becoming too much like Email?
I think that everyone should just hop on Twitter and get it over with. Since that is the way that social networking is headed, it would make sense for all of you to be ahead of the curve.
Come and be a trendsetter....follow me!

New Resolution

This year, I plan to get back on the blogging trail, regardless of who reads it.
Last year, with the move, I got off-track. For better or worse, here we go again!
