Take care of your body.  It’s the only place you have to live.

From 1 Corinthians 3:16-17:  “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?  If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person.  For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.”

The two most important tools of parenting are time and touch.  Listen to your boys and girls, look them in the eye, put your arms around them, hug them close, tell them how valuable they are.

From Proverbs 20:7:  “The righteous walk in integrity—happy are the children who follow them!”

Feelings and Emotions are the universal language and are to be honored.  They are the authentic expression of who you are in your deepest place.

When we are most, then we are least alone; for are these faces not identical?

Take a moment to ask the Lord if anything is clouding your internal signals, and trust in His promise to make your path straight.

From Proverbs 3:5-6:  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”

Baseball Greats

Satchel Paige (1906-1982)

Don’t look back.  Something might be gaining on you.

Ted Williams (1918-2002)

No one has come up with a substitute for hard work.

Pitcher Satchel Paige played most of his years of baseball before the Major Leagues were opened up to play for African-Americans.  Despite this, he was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1971.

Left fielder Ted Williams played his entire Major League career with the Boston Red Sox.  In 1941, he hit .406 (the person to hit at least .400).  The Hall-of-Famer’s statistics are even more incredible when one realizes that he served in the military during both World War II and the Korean War as an aviator.  

Lucille Ball Quotes

In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t play to get discouraged.

Lucille Ball (1911-1989) persevered through a quiet film career in the 1930s and 1940s.  Television would be her gateway to stardom with her memorable sitcom “I Love Lucy.”  This comedic actress earned five Emmy Awards for her television work.
