Yearly Archives: 2016

Instead of New Year’s Resolutions this year…

This time of the year our attention turns from 2016 to 2017. This also means the dreaded term “New Year’s Resolutions” rears its ugly head. So, I thought I’d suggest some things for you to think about leading up to 2017 and the week or two after that might help…

Don’t make Resolutions. Instead, make promises or even contracts with yourself. If you want to make it even more real, write out a contract on paper and sign it. This makes your promise a bit more real and easier for you to remember.

Don’t be so concerned about getting rid of things you’re upset about or frustrated in your life (losing weight, being better at something, etc.).

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays

The staff and crew at are taking the next few days off, so I thought I’d leave you with this…

Many of us might say the words but lack on some basic details. I’m not a theologian but I thought I’d take a shot at explaining a few of the celebrations during the”Season of Love” as best I can.

Wait…Music has words too?

Music is such an important part of our lives. Even if we can’t “carry a tune” or play an instrument, music truly can “soothe the savage beast.”

During the Holiday Season, you can’t go anywhere without hearing a familiar song in stores, friends’ homes, church, in the car or family gatherings. If you’re like me, I’ll bet you’ve even caught yourself from time to time singing along, even if only in secret.

We’ve heard our favorite songs, both Holiday, popular or even religious, so often that the words almost automatically pop into our minds. We “think along” or sing along with them “naturally.”
