100-Word Stroll, 7/4/17: FACING THE THREAT

The devil caught me with my head down and got excited until I looked up and said, “Amen.” I’ve been down before.  It’s during those times I take comfort in 2 Corinthians 4:7-12.  There’s a reason God leaves me on my own.  I rarely know at the time what it is.  Thankfully, I don’t have … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 10/27/16: IF IT WAS EASY, ANYBODY COULD DO IT

Abraham Lincoln once said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.” I hate physical limitations.  I like less being told I can’t do something.  Young twerps getting air time just by sitting on their afts whining really grind my gears.  Older ones, even more. You’ve heard it:  “NOBODY SAID IT WOULD BE EASY.  THEY SAID IT … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 8/31/16: 20 PUSH-UPS LATER . . .

63-year-old bodies scarred by repeated surgeries and pummeled by repeated traumas don’t respond well to exercise.  I do it anyway. On the floor, stretching out muscle remnants that prefer sleep.  50 crunches.  Working arms and shoulders with 10-lb. barbells.  On doc’s orders, getting sun – natural ‘D’ – as often as possible since I’m unable … Continue reading »

#25: DREAMS UNLIMITED, STEPS REASONABLE

“DREAM BIG, MAN!”                     Absolutely!  Ever listen in when someone asks a 9-year-old what they want to be?  There’s NOTHING he can’t do, NOTHING out of bounds for her, zero they can’t accomplish.  Great scientist?  Army General?  World-class chef?  Navy Seal?  Neurosurgeon?  Astronaut?  Astrophysicist?  Part of first Mars colony?  SURE!  No lid, no … Continue reading »

QTMs for 5/23/16: I CELEBRATE MONDAYS!

Trashing Mondays has become one of Americans’ fav pastimes.  Even people whom I know to be positive and upbeat join in the put-downs of this second day of every week.  Why?  Everybody does it.  You’re carefully scrutinized with a quirked eyebrow if you ask things like, “Well, what’s so wrong with Monday, anyway?”  Probably think … Continue reading »
