Killing time murders opportunities...

"Killing time murders opportunities..." WHAT A CLICHE... When we kill time, we MURDER opportunities... MURDER, it said MURDER!!!! When someone is murdered, that person is gone for good... It's not just gone for a while, IT'S GONE FOR GOOD!!!!  that tells me when we kill time (waist time, not make the most of the opportunities that we have every day) we MURDER that opportunity, we KILL it... It's GONE!!! It's NEVER coming back... I know, I know... your thinking, there may be a second chance for that opportunity... You MAY be right... but, you MAY NOT... who wants to take that chance? We never know wether or not we will GET that second chance...

My Point: I had a great opportunity to spend some time praying with and getting to know a young man tonight... Had I NOT taken the opportunity that was before me, I would have missed the chance to meet a young man who loves God and JUST WANTS MORE OF GOD.... How cool is that? (and I found out he actually reads my blog)  Who knew???

When all is said and done...

"When all is said and done..." is there more SAID than DONE?  I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin... When your life is over, will there be more things that you talked about than you actually did? They say, You only have one life to live, make it count... What are you saying that you should be doing? Why are you talking instead of doing... I heard someone recently ask this question... Are you a ducker or a doer? It seems as though there are a lot of people who can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk... They can't stand the heat, so they need to get out of the kitchen...

My Point: Have I used enough "Cliches" or should I use a few more? Let me know...

“An Eye for an Eye, Makes the World go Blind”

“An Eye for an Eye, Makes the World go Blind” WOW!!! What a statement... I heard this from my 16 yr. old son. When I first heard this, it got me thinking... When I am in THAT mood to return anger with anger, or retaliate for something that someone did to me, what good does it REALLY do? I mean, bitterness, anger, revenge, etc. gets into your heart and mind and begins the destructive, downward spiral..  It begins the process of me getting on the wrong path... When your on the wrong path, it leads to the wrong destination. Who really WANTS to go to the wrong place..? When someone does something to me (they poke MY eye), and I retaliate (I poke their eye), what good does it do? We both go blind!!!! The only person that feels better is ME... and oh yeah, I forgot, It’s all about me...
