For One Day: Look for the GOOD

I love our country.  No.  Really.  I do! I love our country. Therefore, when I see all the anti-American rhetoric, it can hurt.  I know.  “That’s strange,” you might say.  Well, when you love someone or something and others don’t, that doesn’t bother you?  Just a little bit. “Paul, how come?  How come you would

Do We Need A Leader?

With all that has happened the last several months leads me to ask the question, “Who is the leader of  ‘insert-name-of-group?”  When I asked someone that question, “Who is the leader you are following?”  The person responded, “I don’t know.”  Fascinating.  To be part of an organization / movement and not know who the leader

As we know, May 25, 2020 will be a day that will be an important date of history.  The murder / killing of George Floyd.  The days that followed are going to be not as “important” as that one day.   However, many life changing things did happen following that day (as of June 10, 2020

We are on “Paid Administrative Leave.”

On Friday, March 27, 2020, I had three great phone calls. My “Chaplain” – In June 2016, my “Chaplain” and I met one another on a cruise to Alaska and have been friends ever since!  At that time, my “Chaplain” was a Chaplain for a jail.  So, he is an ACTUAL Chaplain.  LOVE HIS KNOWLEDGE
