The Power of Information

>> Tuesday, December 18, 2012

This is what I have learned this month: "The Power of Information". Between a husband and wife there is a certain level of loyalty; of course within safe limits. It is important for your spouse to feel protected in that way and never embarrassed. The hurt that comes from simple betrayal can be damaging. We have to be careful even amongst friends to not "shoot off at the mouth about personal things regarding your other half; even if it seems harmless." Best to be methodical and leave it unsaid. You not only save his reputation but yours as well.

With your children and teenagers you should remember it is always important to speak well of them around others. When seeking advice, make sure they are not around to hear you because they will find out. You should keep their insecurities to yourself. Don't think just because they are young they feel and understand less. It is just as big to them as if someone you loved told your deepest and even darkest secret.

At work, you may know lots of things about your coworkers that management staff has no idea. Many people may say share the negative information out of a good gossip deflecting from self or as an injustice for you getting blame or trouble as a result of another staff's doing. Even if they get promoted don't share the information. God, the Universe, reveals everything. Move on. If it is emotionally too much to carry, speak to someone you trust (not at work) to help you become resolved. There are times when one must not hold their tongue. If you or someone else were so wronged that you cannot move on, by all means speak but realize for some people money is more powerful than ethics. They will remove themselves from feeling bad for you, for in the end it will always be about themselves, their career and their livelihood.

Moving on gives a fresh start and sometimes the best mirror as you are out of the equation. Your worth and gifts will always be weighed once absence. And sometimes that's just how lessons are learned, on both parts.

Oldest Married Couple's Motto

>> Friday, November 16, 2012

*My younger sister sent me a text with a picture of the oldest known married couple, living today. When asked for advice and secret to their marriage this was their reply:

"In our day when something was broken we fixed it, not throw it away."

During an interview, this is the answer they gave the interviewer when asked about the most important thing when having a bad day in the relationship:

"Remember marriage is not a contest – never keep a score. God has put the two of you together on the same team to win."

When asked during that same interview about fighting they said:

"NEVER physically! Agree that it’s okay to disagree, & fight for what really matters. Learn to bend – not break!"

Lesson in Today's Sunday Service

>> Sunday, November 04, 2012

Hope you enjoyed the anniversary blog party. To see the beginning, just scroll down and click "older posts" at the bottom of the screen.

I attend an amazing church and today was Teen Sunday, which meant teenagers led the service. What a fabulous job they did. There were videos, singing, comedy, and an amazing play. It was the message that was taught by three young men with different styles. I loved that at such a young age they were brutally honest about their life.

What I learned from them was that I have the wrong definition of Love. My definition will have to be redefined. I thought love was reciprocal and that when you give 100% the other person should give 100% as well. I have discovered that Jesus definition of Love is, you give 100% even if the other person does not express love back. This is the true sacrifice of Love. You love even if the other person does not. This is true Love. If your love is conditional on what you get in return, this is not true love.

Mind blowing isn't it? If you think about it even deeper on a spiritual level, God loves us, even when we do not love him. It reminds me of a scripture I learned in college, Romans 5:6-8. Basically it says, even though we did not know God/Christ, he helped us and sacrificed his life for us and that God/Christ showed the extent of his love for us even when we rejected him. We all know rejection hurts. Who would continue to love after being rejected. This is what I learned today; True Love continues to love your child, your teenager, your mother and father, your relatives and your spouse, even when their love does not add up to your expectations.

The new thing now adays is taking relationship and marriage quizzes. It's just to get the conversation started when one needs to connect emotionally or physically with their spouse. For newly married couples you really don't need to take the quiz at this point. Also warning, if you do not do well on the test it does not mean your marriage is over, just that you may need a little help and input.
Try these by clicking "Quiz":


Let's continue with the music of Bruno and Justin.
Aaah, young love.


Speaking of parties. We now bring you to our commercial break. Are you looking to do something different for your children's birthday party? Do you feel limited by the same birthday options? Are others around you using the same popular marketing brands that can become boring each year?

Want something different and fun for the kids? Have you heard of MAD SCIENCE? They are an afterschool program, a summer camp program and they host birthday parties. My sons love Mad Science. We have attended the after school program on a few occasions. They have a variety of hands on science adventures from junior detectives to secret agents, indoor fireworks, chemical reations and more.
