Sometimes at Christmas we forget that this season is a celebration of the gift of God.
This week I asked you to pray for me on Facebook. thank you. There was nothing particularly wrong but I know I needed prayer to succeed in the many projects I have launched and have been working on for the past few years. I have been close before and messed up my chances by failing to put God first. I didn’t want to do that again. Your prayers helped keep me in His will. Prayer works.
And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint… Luke 18:1

Going to see how long a title can be before it gets truncated or causes problems. Hi and thanks for listening to the show. This is my impromptu Thanksgiving message. I love you. Thanks for listening.
You matter to me. Recognizing your worth.
Last year in time for Halloween Derek Ward and I finished a story I love to tell. It’s an original story that I’d like to give to you for free. It’s about two and half hours long. It took a lot of work but I really enjoyed creating it and providing it for you. Originally I wanted to sell it on Audible.com or some place but as the spooky season of storytelling returns I wanted to share it with you. If you like it and would like to give a donation, here’s a link and a button. I was going to sell it for $9.97 but will leave it up to you to encourage me or just to enjoy if you don’t have it. It’s ok.

acts 21:34 But some in the crowd were shouting one thing [and] others [another], and [because] he was not able to find out the truth on account of the commotion…
commotion: state of confused and noisy disturbance.
There is a lot of noise happening right now and it is distracting us to the point where we are not functioning well. We forgot to listen to our bodies, to our spouses and to God. These are the three points I am trying to remind us about this week.
Remember when the TV used to go off. The TV is used by some to go to sleep but do you realize it is not good for you?
The importance of communicating with your spouse. (listening for understanding)
How to hear from God (again). Get into the Word of God.
Changing the show, going more into the serious problems plaguing my friends as a pastor.
Keep the faith. That means to continue in the committed pursuit of some idea or goal that is worthy but difficult to attain or achieve. It means, "Don't quit in the face of difficulty."
Keep the Faith (Fidem Serva)
eventually things will fall into place, until then..
laugh at the confusion,
enjoy today and live for the moment
accept what is
let go of what was
have faith in what it could be

Celebrating my birthday this weekend with you. Going to share a Gospel Message I plan to share on Sunday, June 26th about "How to Fight Your Demon." Music from my group the DC Gospel Stars called "Put it in His Hands" and just saying thanks to you for your friendship.
Seth Godin said
Do not tell your friends about your nascent idea, your notion, the area you hope to explore next.
Do not seek reassurance from them.
Do not become vulnerable about your tiny new sprout of an inkling.
It will be extinguished by people who mean well. They are trying to protect you from heartache.
There is a very, very tiny group of fellow travelers who can amplify your inkling. For the rest, keep it quiet. Trot out a make-believe idea instead, a pretend Potemkin Village of a project, let them dump all over that one instead.
Keep the other one in the incubator for now. There will be plenty of time for sharing later.
But I disagree in part. I want to share what I want to do and put it out there so you can catch the vision. I want to change the US. I want to teach people how to fish.
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
