Extra Word (Reflections for moving in the right direction.)

Who Says (Tweets and Tips from people you know)
–       Your world is a living expression of how you are using or have used your mind. – Earl Nightingale

Faith Attack (A probing question or insightful feedback from the “Purpose Posse.”)
Q: How do you learn to walk by faith and not by sight?
A: You have to turn-up your backlight. On electronic tablets and other screen devices you can adjust the backlight. Some people will lower it to save on battery power. Others will increase it in order to see more clearly. If you want to walk by faith-sight not just eyesight, you have to turn up the light that comes from a source of timeless eternal truths.

Wise Crack (A good laugh or timeless message that stirs the soul.)
George Phillips age 82 of Meridian, Mississippi was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window.

George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked ‘Is someone in your house?’ He said ’No.’ Then they said ’All patrols were busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available.’

George said, ‘Okay’. He hung up the phone and counted to 30.

Then he phoned the police again. ’Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now because I just shot them,’ and hung up.
Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips’ residence, and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the Policemen said to George, ‘I thought you said that you shot them!’

George said, ‘I thought you said there was nobody available!’

Your true calling is in the way God uses you for which you might be remembered forever.

Faith Attack (A probing question or insightful feedback from the “Purpose Posse.”)
Q: What does it take to separate from someone else’s faith in order to get to the next level?
A: It takes giving birth. Up to nine months a baby is nurtured in the mother’s womb. But there comes a time when the baby’s umbilical cord is cut at the end of the delivery process. Then the baby is nurtured from the outside of the womb. To separate from someone else’s faith you have to start your own growth process on the outside of their care, nurture and experience.

Wise Crack (A good laugh or timeless message that stirs the soul.)
A blonde wanted to go ice fishing, so after getting all of the right tools, she headed toward the nearest frozen lake.

After getting comfy on her stool she started to cut a circular hole in the ice.
Then from the heavens a voice boomed, ”THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.’

Startled, the blonde moved further down the ice, poured a thermos of hot chocolate and started to cut yet another hole in the ice. The voice boomed, ”THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.”

This time quite scared, the blonde moved to the far end of the ice. Then she started another hole and once again the voice said, ”THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.”

The very scared blonde raised her head and said, ”Is that you, Lord?” The voice answered, ”NO. IT IS THE MANAGER OF THE ICE RINK.

Extra Word (Reflections for moving in the right direction.)
When travelling life’s journey using your true calling as a roadmap, you’ll get to see how some disappointments might have been there to save you from going over a cliff.

Who Says (Tweets and Tips from people you know)
–       Where your talents and the needs of the world cross, there lies your calling. – Aristotle
–       There’s nothing wrong in having a plan. Plans are great but missions are better. Missions survive when plans fail…. – @GeorgeFraser

Faith Attack (A probing question or insightful feedback from the “Purpose Posse.”)
Q: How do you minimize the feeling of despair or disappointment when something goes wrong on your journey that can cause you to drown in misery or act crazy?
A: A great thinker once said “every disappointment is for a good.” A favorite scripture reminds us that “all things work together for the good.” So there’s a difference between disappointment and defeat. It’s not over until God has the say-so or the Last Word.

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club.
A cell phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and says,

Hello?”

Everyone else in the room stops to listen:

WOMAN: “Hi Honey, it’s me. Are you at the club?”

MAN: “Yes”

WOMAN: “I am at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat. It’s only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?”

MAN: “Sure. Go ahead if you like it that much.”

WOMAN: “I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2006 models. I saw one I really liked.! ”

MAN: “How much?”

WOMAN: “$90,000”

MAN: “OK, but for that price I want it with all the options.”

WOMAN: “Great! Oh, and one more thing … The house I wanted last year is back on the market. They’re asking $950,000”

MAN: “Well, then go ahead and make them an offer of $900,000. They’ll probably take it. If not, we can go an extra 50 thousand.

WOMAN: Ooh! Wonderful! I love you so much!!”

MAN: “I love you, too.”

The man closes up. The other guys in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment.

He smiles and asks, “Anyone know who this phone belongs to?”

Extra Word (Reflections for moving in the right direction.)
Your true calling can take on a life of its own as an extension of what you do to make a living.

Who Says (Tweets and Tips from people you know)
–      Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. – Carl Jung
–       Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected. (Steve Jobs) – @ManagersDiary

Faith Attack (A probing question or insightful feedback from the “Purpose Posse.”)
Q: How do you know if an opportunity that seems to require a leap of faith is not a setup for failure?
A: Great question! You’re never 100% sure, but check your gut for some clues. Look into your heart for how emotionally attached, detached or aroused you get. The rest becomes known as you take the leap of faith which helps to clarify your vision or further align you with your true calling.

Wise Crack (A good laugh or timeless message that stirs the soul.)
An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.”

“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams.
“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the old man says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her,” and he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like hell they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.” She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone, too, and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving. Now what do we tell them for Christmas?”
