Last night, in the black of night (scary music plays), I woke up with a thought on my mind. Now you would think it would be a very important thought if my mind woke me up in the middle of the night to share it with me. And indeed, it was.

SHORT THOUGHTS: It is not what we see on the outside that matters. It is who we are on the inside and what we are made of that contain our true character, integrity and quality…who we really are.
Looks may fade and wrinkles appear. Hair may recede and gray. Waist lines may expand and strength diminish. Vision may dim and hearing fade but who we are underneath it all…that soul under everything we hide behind…remains the same.

JOURNAL: I cannot let the fear of what might go wrong…keep me from the excitement and possibility of what might go right. I cannot let the walls that I have built, made out of fears, doubt and the unknown, hold me back from all that God has for me. I must move forward…always, no matter what. I must take a step, even if it is only one. I must refuse to stay the same. I must choose to grow.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Some new ways are better than my old ways. The way I have always done things may not always be the best way and I must to be ready and willing to change and grow if I find something that is truly better. I need to be willing to break out of a mold because often, it is God that is directing the mold breaking session.

JOURNAL: I am a one leg in, one leg out...kind of guy. (O.L.I.O.L.O. for you acronym lovers like myself) I am not really sure when it all started or if I just came out of the womb with this natural propensity. If so, I'm sure being wrapped like a burrito in the hospital nursery drove me plum crazy. I'm not really sure how plums got dragged into this whole "crazy" thing but I would bet there is a great story about that somewhere to be found and told. But we will have to save that for another day and time as we are talking about O.L.I.O.L.O.

JOURNAL: You can find out who the rule followers are and who the rule followers are not, just by going to the movies. It true…I wouldn’t try to lead you astray.
Yesterday, my wife, Denice, and I, spontaneously decided to go to the movies. We invited my daughter, Billi and son in-law, Casey, to go with us because they only live one minute and twenty seconds from us.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Questions to consider today. How is your life going? Where is your direction coming from? In what or whom do you really trust in? Is your Heavenly Father the first or the last one that you run to in good and bad times? Just thoughts on my mind this morning and something to think about today.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: So I just got done with am appt with my ENT doctor. The last couple months, I have been being treated for some irritation going on in my throat.
After running a camera on a hose through my nose and down into my throat, he said, "That looks really good, that looks so much better, you have the throat of a 16 year old."
All the flattery talk may have made me blush a little but I tethered my big floating head back to earth by reminding myself that he did not make any such statement about my face. But still, nice words from an ENT.

SHORT THOUGHTS: When hard times and trials come, hang in there. The one that comes to kill, steal and destroy would not be messing with you if you had not made great progress worthy of trying to mess up. And God would not ALLOW him to mess with you if you were not able to face it. Your Savior…the One in you…is greater than anything this world can throw at you. Don't give up...don't give in and don't give back any ground you have won back in your life. Learn where you are strong and where you are weak in this tough time. And through it all, never forget that your God,
