RANDOM THOUGHTS: A man, his dog, reclining in a chair in Cascade, Idaho. Does it get any better than this?
Well...it would be better if I had my wife with me here.
And...if all six of my girls were here.
And...if all seven of my grandkids were here.
And...if I had three large pizzas, half Canadian bacon, half pepperoni and sausage.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: 4am...we are not friends. To be truthful, I really don't like you very much at all. In all of my 55 years on this earth, I do not ever remember a time that I have been glad to see you when you when I saw you face to face. In fact, it is always just the opposite and I always wish you would just go away.

SHORT THOUGHTS: EVERYONE deals with good and bad things in life...everyone. It is how we respond to those things that matters. Our response to what life brings our way is what we are in full control of and is what will make us into who we are and who we will become in the future.
God, help us to face life head on, to see clearly and to choose wisely, staying close to You, our strength and our shield.

SHORT THOUGHTS: There are many things in this life that just don't make any sense at all. No matter how hard we try to figure out the "why"...there is just not a reasonable answer that ever surfaces. There are many things happening in the world right now that fit this criteria and that leaves us feeling angry, anxious, afraid and hopeless.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Besides a mutual faith and trust in God, I think the next most important thing is not so much..."finding" the right person as much as it is..."being" the right person.
If our thoughts and desires are to care for our spouse as ourselves, then unless you treat yourself badly, you will treat your spouse with love, honor and respect. You will take care of them and nurture them just like you do your own body.

SHORT THOUGHTS: There are many things that happen in this life that we just will never, ever understand. The hard truth, though we don't like it, is that we don't have to understand everything. With some things...we will just have to learn to trust in the One that knows everything from the beginning to the end. The One that will make all things new and all wrongs right. The One that loves us more than we can ever even comprehend. In that day, when we are there with God, then we will see and understand it all.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Last night I discovered something that I had not ever really noticed or thought of before. As luck (maybe good...maybe bad) would have it, I have decided to share this revelation with you now. You are welcome...or...I'm very sorry, in advance. Choose your side after you read on.
