The actor Peter Sellers once said, “If you don’t live before you die, you’ll die before you live.”
It is with this thought in mind that despite my challenges in life and the difficult people I meet, I choose to look for things that make me smile. As I traverse life’s pathway, I refuse to give into negativism, whining, and senseless gossip.
It is a bit daunting however to share your thoughts with the world. What perspective or insights can I offer that someone else hasn’t already expressed?
I do on the other hand welcome you to share in my zest for life. I am first and foremost a Christian who adores his wife, loves his children, and is honored to serve two special congregations as a Pastor.
My perspectives will yield humorous and serious reflections on life.
I will also post past pieces from a column I wrote for a southwestern New Mexico newspaper under the title, “The Lighter Side”. I hope as you read my musings, you remember that my posts aren’t meant to hurt anyone’s feelings, but are meant to bring a smile to your face and a little joy to your day.
In this life, it is no matter if my name is not remembered, what does matter is that you know that someone still holds eternal optimism as a cherished gift. My little sunshine on an otherwise gloomy day is because Jesus Christ gave me so many things to be truly thankful for.
I hope you enjoy visiting my little corner of the world as you travel the information highway. Make yourself at home, come back often, and share this blog with friends. 🙂
