People are impressed with daring rescues!  I think this is well illustrated by this book with an unusual title:  “Oh, My God” by Paul Cinquemani CPA.  And unlike taxes, that CPA are tied to— this book is here free (in the PDF form)— or you can pay for the paper if you want a hard copy book.  (It too would be a bargain!)

 

We tend to here these words spoken in the negative.  Something tragic has occurred that spills these words from our lips. Paul does an artful job here in  giving both a refreshing and flowing book that makes the book not long enough! 

 

So do everybody a favor and check this out.  It will have a positive impact on you.

Keep thinking!  Let me know what you think about this!  What might be topics or resources we both want to explore and then to share?  Eager to here as this community grows!


 

Practicing family medicine for over 30 yrs has definitely taught me a lot.  Seeing how people think has become a passion of mine.  And yes, it makes sure that I check under my own hood to see how my engine (mind) is doing and what I would be wise to do so as not to encourage any premature breakdowns!

 

Thinking is defined as follows:

think·ing

 

adjective

1.

using thought or rational judgment; intelligent.

"he seemed to be a thinking man"

synonyms: intelligent, sensible, reasonable, rational; More

noun

1.

the process of using one's mind to consider or reason about something.

"they have done some thinking about_____________ (you fill in blank)”

 

What we think about,  can be divided into two!  Sure we can sub-divide without limits beyond the time & energy it takes— but you have 2 real divisions.  Here is what come to my mind:

- Positive vs. Negative

- Helpful vs. Hurtful

- Long term vs Short term

- Right vs. Left

- Doing what is right vs. Doing what is not right

- Others as priority vs  Me focussed*

- [Perhaps some input from y’all]

 

The divisions are not always right vs wrong —though sometimes it is.  Wisdom will help us all avoid the 2 ditches on either side of the roads! 

 

So keep thinking!  

 

Share if you so desire.   Eager to pass on it on!

More of the Skit Guys!  Good Friday along with Malcus in the Garden, I feel quite confident that you will find them worth thinking about!

Where Do You Want Your Name?

 

Who has not been impacted by the story, “Footprints in the Sand.”  This short relay attempts to help us to turn the the proverbial coin over, and see something impactful —that has for way to long been overlooked.

Underneath the Door with Michael Card (both mp4 & mp3 interview):    Addressing the shut doors between us and those we were designed to be open to us—family dysfunction. 

This successful musician, author, radio host, & lecturer—shares his story that shows honor, yet is honest to how the door between his Dad & himself—wounded him.  Listen to both the relays on the subject, or it has deep roots that impact us both horizontally & vertically!

 

I’ve seen the near universal impact that Michael’s story has had.   For those blessed enough to only identify by saying that they don’t want needless doors between them and those that are suppose to be close to them—great.  For the rest of us whom can identify with some painful doors between ourself and other(s) whom were suppose to be there for us.

 

For the high % of folks who are somewhere on the spectrum of healing from the closed doors between them and others—just know that “God will not waste your pain.”   And know that He was not the source of the pain.  HE Who knows infinitely about scars that go beyond one’s skin, but deep to one’s heart, mind,  that make up one’s very soul—-HE alone can both begin a healing process.  

 

In closing, Michael touches on in the audio interview that the scars will be with us on this earth.  Scriptures make it clear that though God  gives us the grace / help we need to get through the storms , our tears do not end until after the day called “The Day of Judgment.  That is when we see our lost friends & family do the unthinkable—pierce God one last time by giving their unique spirit back into the very hands* that ultimately knit them together.  That is why sin will never rise again.
