Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. Harvey S. Firestone

The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in persons with whom you are going to spend most of your waking hours.

Some people get spiritual because they see the light and some people get spiritual because they feel the heat!

How do you know if you're truly a servant? See how you react the next time someone treats you like one.

From The Corner Of My Mind

* It's a little cooler this morning than the last few days. The sun is rising fast to warm things up, and it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day.
* I wrote a long post via the IPhone yesterday that is lost in cyberspace. I typed it up and sent it via email. Apparently CenturyLink/Embarq mail server is having issues. It worked for a while last night but seems to be back down again this morning.
* I receive Internet service through CenturyLink at home, hence the embarqmail address that I have. They have changed names of the company numerous times since we started using their service 10 years ago. I'm through with it. We don't even have a land line into our house. We don't want one and don't need one. We use our cell phones for everything. They charge us more for a dedicated Internet service, than if we were to have a phone and Internet through them. Stupid. One more reason that I've had enough.
* We have a neighbor that worked for the company(not anymore)and he informed me that they are the biggest scam out there right now. True or not, I've had enough of their poor service. I pay extra monthly for a faster Internet service and rarely is it even faster than before. It takes forever to download a movie and it should only take 15 minutes at the speeds that I'm supposed to have.
* Ideas on better Internet service in Decatur?
* The bad thing, I would have to change my email address that I have had for 9 years now. Ughhhh
* Rant over.
* I have been asked to head up the men's ministry at church. I accepted.
* I reluctantly started going back to church 3 years ago. I didn't want to serve in ANY capacity at that time. I just wanted to sneak in, sneak out and get filled with the Holy Spirit. On my time frame. Things, and people change. The family at Central Fellowship have made me feel welcome, at home, and part of great family of spiritual people. I've prayed about this and see a need. I have some ideas to develop this program and any input would be greatly appreciated.
* We used to have a monthly men's breakfast, and I hope to get that started back up. We/I will have to be creative in funding any activities that me or others come up with due to the hard times our community and church are facing at this time. It can be done, and I feel I was called to this challenge.
* I hope I don't let anyone down. Onward Christian Soldiers!
* We are getting our taxes done next week. Pray about that.
* I have a GOOD friend that is a financial advisor. He would get out one of his guns and shoot me if he saw our budget.
* Looking back through some records a few days ago, it was discovered, not to my surprise, that we eat out entirely to much.
* Cuz got a visitor a few nights ago from a cousin that was in Houston on business. He was glad to see you Steve, and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
* Remember to keep up with him and check in at care / JDGreen!
* Have a great weekend, see ya Around The Corner!

The key to a Godly men's ministry is service; not fellowship, not bible study, not church politics but service. Anything else is just another breakfast/luncheon club.
Find those in your own community who truly need help and help them and spread the Gospel by attraction not promotion.
That will mean sacrificing some of the men's leisure and recreation time but that is the kind of sacrifice that God honors.
God guarantees you will receive more than you give.

Remember, the prayer breakfast isn't really about the food, it's about the fellowship. Let everyone bring their own donuts! lol
We also did away with land line phones. We were paying for the telemarketers to call us. WASTE.
We changed to a verizon hot spot. Can take it anywhere and up to 10 devices can be connected at once. LOVE. IT. (check with the Verizon by Sears).

"Good" as in "not evil" or "good as in "close"?

If you decide to leave your existing email address, I recommend picking one from gmail, yahoo, hotmail or one of those services. That way you can take it with you if you ever have to move again.
