324. Fall Leaves

Mow over fallen leaves once or twice before you bag them. You’ll fit more in.

But play in them first.

323. Essay: The Shrewdness of God

When I say shrewd, I mean having sharp powers of judgment; being astute, clever, and wise.

Many have received a promise from God within a certain situation, only to be taken out of the situation without completing their task. They are immediately disappointed because they feel God has broken a promise. Keep in mind a few things during these times. The promise was most likely true, but it did not revolve around you; God can still get it done even with you out of the picture. He wanted you to get done as much as you could possibly do, and you now have fulfilled your current role, completed your current task.

God is so astute that He knows more about what makes us human than we do ourselves. He is shrewd when it comes to dealing with our egos and our arrogance. You could say He tricks us for our own good. But here’s the most important part. Would you really have gotten so much done if God had not convinced you that you would be the major player?

322. Life’s Length

Life is simultaneously too long and too short to neglect to do what you love, to love what you do, and to be the person you’ve wanted to be.

It’s up to you, and now is the time.

321. Don’t Wait

Don’t wait to have your last meal, last dance, last kiss, last words, last success, last memory. If it’s time to choose your last anything, it’s already too late. Do it now.

320. Spouse Qualities

Choose your spouse based on how much joy and life they bring to those around them.

319. Abortion Argument

You can rightly be pro-life as well as for the death penalty because there is a grand difference between the innocent and the guilty.
