JOURNAL THOUGHTS: I was talking to Denice this morning and the phrase, "Idle Threat" came up. (Yes, she was threatening my life once again...ha) Anyway, that got me thinking about that phrase while I was watching my back and wondering where it came from among other things.
That phrase seems to refer to something you are saying but have no intention of doing. Like when you hear someone say, "I'm going to rip your arm off and beat you with the bloody stump" or "I'm going to beat you within an inch of your life" and other fun stuff like that.

SHORT THOUGHTS: You know you are finally starting to mature and grow up when you quit blaming all your struggles and problems on everyone else and instead start taking responsibility for your life and your choices. Then and only then can you start moving forward and start making real progress.

JOURNAL: The view was spectacular as I sat looking off the second story balcony of my hotel. All the rooms faced the ocean and looked off the cliff down to the beach. People went to and fro walking and running in the sand and in the distance to my left there was a pier and you could see little dots in the water that were actually surfers. It was a very surreal and the view combined with the steady sound of the ocean waves coming in and going

SHORT THOUGHTS: What do you need today? Not what do you "want" but what do you really "need?" There is a big difference between the two though some people never see it. What is it that will truly satisfy you all the way to your innermost being?

SHORT THOUGHTS: I know God will meet me in all areas that HE is leading me in. And “I” meet me in all the areas that HE is not leading me in. And therein lies the problem. I need to be better at finding and following only the ways that HE is leading me.

SHORT THOUGHTS: If we don’t strive for higher and better things and require more and more from ourselves then we will surely reach the goal of, “more of the same.”

RANDOM THOUGHTS: As we close out this Mayan calendar cycle I had a thought this morning. Actually, I had a few but this one seems to be forefront in my mind. "Do you think that if an Onion could smell its own breathe that it would want a breath mint...and in a related thought...if an Onion were to cut itself or fall down and skin it's knee, would it cry because it hurt or because it made it's eyes burn?"

Psalm 127 (NIV1984)
Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
As I have watched the direction our country is headed the past few years, this verse has come to mind over and over again. American has been overly blessed by God because we were founded in Him and for what we have stood for.

JOURNAL: Some people have what is referred to as a “sweet tooth” but my wife has a “popcorn tooth.” She loves popcorn but not the microwave kind. Her brand preference is Orville Redenbacher's gourmet popcorn (O.R.G.P.
