A Chicago Story: The Brick

By Coach Phatty, published on Mar 13, 2014

It really is amazing to me when I think of the times when I react to a situation before I know the whole reason why an event happened. We all need to be a little more patient and take the time to be a bit more understanding when things happen to us. The following story is a great example of this concept…

A little while ago, a young and very successful executive named Josh was traveling down a Chicago neighborhood street. He was going a bit too fast in his sleek, black, 12 cylinder Jaguar XKE, which was only two months old.

He was watching for kids darting out from between... (more)

The Terrible Two's, Teenage Style

By melanie jean juneau, published on Apr 29, 2013

Living through teenage drama without loosing your sanity

I like to compare teenagers to two-year olds because the very same dynamic is unfolding, only this time it is a stressful transition from childhood to adulthood that requires many years to complete. I read somewhere that 25 is the age that young adults finally get an adult brain! In our family, we actually celebrate that birthday and welcome our offspring into full adulthood.

Teens are adjusting to their rapidly changing bodies. Sometimes teenagers, boys especially like to prove their new-found strength. David... (more)

Window To My Heart

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Mar 31, 2013

There is a window from my heart to yours

We opened this with trust, laid our souls bare

Inhaling your breathe within my being

Trusting in the sacred power of love....

When I heard my first love song

I knew I would find my way to you

I started searching for you long ago

Waiting patiently for God to bless us...

Love does not come to us on our terms

It is destiny flown on wings of hope

Neither can we control or demand love

It is freely gifted as grace from above....

We did not meet somewhere

"How Much Longer, Lord, How Much Longer?"

By melanie jean juneau, published on Oct 10, 2012

One of my sons , in his early teens, had just announced that he could not stand living under our roof another minute,"I'm out of here!", he bellowed, "and don't expect me to come back!" The door slammed and he tore off on his ten speed bike. Of course my father was visiting and witnessed this dramatic episode. After a few minutes, Dad turned to my husband and wondered, " Aren't you going to go after him?" Michael calmly kept reading, then looked up and explained, "Oh, I'm not worried. The only place near enough to bike to is one of his buddy's and they don't feed kids over there. He'll be... (more)

Patience, Silence, have you heard it all before.

By Jennifer Stone, published on Jun 20, 2012

Patience, I would say I have heaps however it all gets too much and I loose my cool like everyone else. We tear into things. I find that I seem to race ahead. A few deep breathes. I had lost control for an instance. I felt like that I was racing about without going forward.

Yet when you feel like that a door or a window opens that pushes you to the next way along the road to your goal. I call it the end vision of what I have been seeing for many years. Yes goals can be in your sight not just for a week, month it could be years and patience does come to the end when your wish manifests... (more)
