In case you were wondering…
At the bank drive thru. The sucky tube thing. You can put your deposit stuff in it, close the top and slip it in the suction vortex… but if you get distracted by your phone and don’t push the “Send” button the sucky tube won’t suck.
After five minutes you’ll be wondering why the tellers are so slow when you’re the only one in the drive thru.
Then you’ll get impatient.
You’ll shoot some glances over to the glass windows.
You’ll give them “the look.”
Then out of the corner of your eye, you’ll see all your gear sleeping in the sucky tube.
The you’ll feel stupid and press the “Send” button. Your stuff will disappear in a rocket of suction.
At least that’s my experience.
On the elevator…
A sweet, older couple from India entered. They were tiny people. I felt right at home.
Each had a big, bold, shiny button which read…
“Happy Anniversary – 48 years!”
Me: Wow!!! 48 years!
Little lady: Yes, 48 years!
Little man: Yes, 48. It has been very hard on me. Very hard.
Then he smiled a big toothless grin and filled the elevator with laughter.
June 21 is my birthday. Turning 44! You guys who know me best also know I “joke” a lot about accepting gifts, such as…. cash or cupcakes!
However, this year let’s give all the gifts to the kids of Mtendere Village in Malawi Africa. Many of you who are friends already sponsor a child. Thank you!
All day long on June 21 I will be bugging you about gifting to the children. Be sure to share the love with your friends. Let’s raise a bunch of money for orphans.
100% of your gift will go directly to the children. No money will be taken out… not even to buy me a cupcake or donut or bacon! You will be giving directly to 100X Missions.
Donate now… Gift any amount you choose… no gift is too small or too LARGE.
Click the link below right now to gift $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 more or even $4.95. You get to choose the amount…
For the most part – as a society and as individuals – we are soft.
We give up too soon.
We fail to go to extremes.
We make excuses when we really did not give it our best.
We compromise our commitments.
This episode of Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition will show you what is possible when we push through barriers – when we remain focused – we we don’t give in.
Live Your Mission,
“If I just knew what God’s will for my life is, then I could… really be happy… know I have purpose… head in the right direction… let go and live fully… find peace… make a difference… “
Good news! I found your personal purpose. Your personal assignment…
I Thess 5:12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Live Your Mission,
Some folks make FUN a big mission of theirs. I love that. We could use more fun and it’s certainly high on my list.
Here’s some fun that just happened…
A family is next to me in the staging area before boarding.
Mom jumps up and starts dancing crazy: We should do one of those flash things.
Teen Daughter: Uh… moooooooom… Flash Mob.
Teen Son: laughs.
Teen daughter: Mom, do your sexy skating.
Mom starts “air” skating. Mom is NOT sexy. But this is very interesting.
Teen daughter: Go mom! Go!!!!
Teen Son: laughs.
A girl who “thinks” she is super-sexy walks through the skating exhibition. Some sort of platform shoe with super-high thin heels. She can barely maneuver. She has not mastered the shoes yet. Very awkward.
Mom skates in behind her and starts mocking her walk. Staggering like she’s drunk.
Teen Daughter: Mom! Stop! You’ll get us killed that girl looks like a wild one.
Teen Son: Laughs.
Dad walks up: So what happened while I was walking around?
Live Your Mission!
