The One Big Change You’re Sick of Hearing About

Who Me?

Who are you lookin‘ at? Are you talkin‘ to me?

There is at least One Irrefutable and Universal Truth

You may not know Tom Allender, but you’d be lucky if you did.

Several years ago, my wife mentioned that Tom had a reputation as a very insightful and heartfelt speaker and was appearing at the local parish in a few weeks to talk about relationships.

I was a little skeptical of getting “preached to” about relationships, but my wife was eager to attend, so I agreed to join her.

He was terrific and wasn’t at all “preachy” … and as he got started, you could see couples beginning to squirm, turning to each other and whispering versions of …

How did he know that [about us]?

… or “Have you already talked to him?” …

I didn’t see him peeking in our window.” ….

There is at least One Universal Truth

There’s little doubt that the world is moving at Mach 10 these days and on many fronts.

It’s not always a good thing, but it’s a’comin’ whether we like it or not.

That’s why we need to adapt, to be eternally vigilant about what’s ahead and be prepared to accept, embrace … and even endorse …the changes coming our way.

It sure beats the alternative, doesn’t it?

If don't like change, will like irrelevance even less

We Salute Our Heroes ….

Today, we pay tribute to the young men and women who defend the freedom we hold so dearly. And, it is never more poignant and meaningful than when our men and women are serving overseas in harm’s way.

For me, this quotation on an Arlington National Cemetery memorial states exactly why they deserve our respect, admiration and support.

Our soldiers don’t wonder “why”. They “do their duty” and selflessly accept their mission to defend our freedom and the values we cherish.

Take a moment from your busy day . . . shed a few tears as I always do . . . and remember the sacrifices they have made through the years … and continue to make every day … at great risk … but with an unwavering dedication to the service of their country.
