The worst words to be spoken by an expecting mommy,
“Daddy, she has something wrong with her brain!”Selah my first-born said crying her eyes out over the phone 3,000 miles away.
All the years of fatherly, biblical, and medical wisdom just came out as,
“Oh, my God!”
We started dating in November 1987, engaged in February, married in June 88, 1st child born in April 1989, 2nd child August 1990, 3rd one October 1991, and the 4th one in June of 1994. By the way, she already had two from a previous marriage.
But I felt ready for marriage. I had great loving, supportive parents. We were both old enough and we were great friends. She was beautiful, and crazy about me. We took all the premarital counseling tests. I thought we were in love. So why not start a new life together? Let's do it.
We had our children born at home. For nine years we went to church, never drank, never smoked. My wife had bullet proof integrity. We both worked hard. I think we had a good family life and a decent marriage. No one could have predicted what the future held to move us into It was a good thing I didn't know what was coming..
"Never say sorry - it's a sign of weakness" John Wayne
"First you get the money, then the power and then you get the women” Al Pacino
“They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning.” Clint Eastwood
“On one hand, we'll never experience childbirth. On the other hand, we can open all our own jars.~ Bruce Willis
Communication? What about these guys? They don't need to talk. They kick ass and chicks dig them.
Guys like Al Pacino, Bruce Willis, and Vin Diesel are role models for us guys. Don't tell me you're not attracted to a guy with some testosterone. We have been raised to look up to these guys. They're cool. We love to watch their movies. We think, 'why can't I be like that guy with the jerk in my life?' We understand the meaning of "Well, punk do you feel lucky, well do ya?" (I have to get that on a bumper sticker)
ChildbirthApril 5th 1989, my first-born child, Selah Faith was born on the living room floor. No mid-wife. It was just my brave wife and myself at the birth. I had my special order latex gloves, sterilized scissors, some shoe strings and a bunch of blankets. The "Child Birth God's Way' kit came with a little blue syringe to suck the snot of the kid's nose. They also threw in some tubes of KY Jelly (very useful). In fact, I had enough for the next couple of kids. What a bargain! I think we spent a total of $75.00 for all four kids.

Center Stage, Star, Under The Big Lights, In The Spot Light, Hired, Married, Winner.Have you ever been there? Have you ever had a chance to be lifted up and applauded by fans? Have you ever won the big trophy? Recognized as a hero or a celebrity even if it was for a few moments? Do you remember that? It felt good didn't it? Like life isn't too bad after all. You worked hard and you succeeded. You made the big catch. You are respected and admired. You earned the thrill of victory and that great feeling of worth. Maybe you wrote something and it was published. Maybe your kid made the grade and got that special award of excellence. We feel like a winner at those moments. Everyone wants to be a winner and loves winning.

For freedom addicts, there is no key to recovery. Instead of being free they are trapped in a vicious cycle of on again, off again relationships. Their selfish choices can snare them with guilt and depression. They are chained to bitterness and anger toward exes or anyone who attempts to slow them down. As this individual hurts more lives, there are fewer places to run and hide. In an effort to escape, they lock their minds into a prison of constant intoxication. Many lose complete self-respect and become confined to a lonely world of selfishness and self-destruction.

Sometimes it's best to leave your exes where you found them. ~anonymous.
Falling in love is like falling off a building it doesn't hurt till the end.-unknown

I had a baseball bat and I was going to cause some serious damage to that car..
Rebellion: My daughter was a rebellious teenager, my stepson was 12, and my wife was 39. . Rebellion can happen at any age. I worked with hundreds of adults at my clinic who were acting out a rebellious life. There is no limit to the amount of damage a rebellious person can cause. No limit of heartache they can cause for people around them. What did these 3 people in my life have in common? No. It wasn't me. That’s one of the symptoms of rebellion; it seems there is always some excuse or someone else to blame. What are we supposed to do or not do when we see this acted out? What can I do to bring them back? All I can do is offer my life experience to give you an idea. Some of it worked and some of it didn’t. In this article I want to suggest the root cause of rebellion that I found to be true in most cases.
I thought I was the good guy in this story. I thought I had a plot line for my life and family. I planned a nice cute story with attractive, talented people playing all the key roles. I was expecting a nice happy ending. Then I end up on the set of ‘Jerry Springer’ and can’t change the channel.
“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to e task at hand.”~ Vince Lombardi
College is a sacrifice few are willing to pay the full price to get. Be patient and keep climbing that mountain with your son or daughter. You will have the honor of being a part of the most important task in that person’s life. Stick with your child a little longer through the problems and you will have finished the battle- a winner.
When we are in trouble for disobedience someone has to pay the price. For this fox family it will be a hard but valuable life lesson to learn
Everyone has a heart. Not everyone wants one. To this mean school bully, he is about to discover that even the hardest of hearts still need to be touched.
How far will love and power go? Can it rule a kingdom or change a rebellious heart? Even for a great and loving king it will require a life of great sacrifice.
This is the collection of all 4 short stories listed here. They are used as fun teaching tools to illustrate important life lessons. They are not the predictable/magical type of endings. It is best to read them out loud to kids between 7 and 12. Approx. 10 to 15 minutes each to read.
To become the best that God has for us may mean to become the lowest. While the world is looking for the top God is looking on the ground.
We spend so much time and energy chasing away commitments; yet, commitment is the cement for the building blocks of life.
I was about 10 years old living in Burbank, California. It was a school day about 6:00 in the morning. Then without warning we were hit with a 6.5 earthquake that rattled everything. Bridges came down, hospitals collapsed, and people were killed. I was thrown out of bed on to the floor. My parents looked like pin balls in an arcade game bouncing off the walls. The ceilings split, the driveway cracked and the kitchen cup herds emptied all over the floor. That was one scary minute I will never forget.
