Over the last couple of years, I’ve really taken to soccer. It doesn’t matter whether it is International or MLS or NWSL, I’ve just really grown to enjoy the sport. I remember when Coach Morgan brought soccer to Hickory. I’m not sure how quickly it took off, but I know that it grew steadily. Then, with the USA Women’s National Team’s success….there was an explosion of growth. Mia Hamm, who can forget her?
Next to music, Soccer may be the only international language, at least in the sporting world. Did you know we even have minor league teams in the US? For example, in Charlotte, NC; we have the Charlotte Independence. They are part of the USL. It’s not as fast paced as American Football. There’s no hurry up offense, but there’s a lot of strategy involved. It’s fun to watch and the players, both men and women, are riddled with talent.
Hope everyone has a great Friday!
It wasn’t long ago, a contact was looking for an assistant. Outside of being perfectly organized, I met the requirements. One thing this person would like to do is interview the World Famous Businessman Jeff Bezos, a man after your money. He wants all of it. At the same time, however, he now wants to give back and desires some good press with the Whole Foods purchase and educating women is his choice. Given his position, let’s think about that for a moment. One is promoting this endeavor, and they are one of my favorite organizations. They have big goals, and have accomplished much through the years. Even more impressive to me is how they are able to partner with organizations like Red and Global Citizen. They must play well with others to be able to manage such partnerships.
The timing of this is questionable, but holding back a person from doing a good work is questionable too. Think about what you have been taught all these years. One is that God’s thoughts are beyond our own. Another is not to worry. So, why not support this endeavor? The only thing that Mr. Bezos, a man known for being laser focused, may want to consider is exceeding his expectations. So, rather than giving just his money to 130 million girls perhaps he’ll double it? I don’t mean he’ll double it if you’ll match his giving, I am saying he’ll double his giving out of the goodness that is in his heart. It’s in all of us. So, what do you say Mr. Bezos? Are you willing to double it, triple it, quadruple it? Here’s a little information about the deal: Total Domination

Meditation is a thing. I was walking through New York a while back, and I passed a transcendental meditation studio. I believe there may have been a picture of Oprah in the window or something. Maybe, maybe not….I’m not sure how meditation has grown to become so chic. I do know that it is an effective form of loving one self in what is a crazy, chaotic world. Have you ever read the book Siddhartha? It’s a classic, typically provided to high school students. It was when I was in high school. Sid was the Buddhist Zen master seeking Nirvana. Basically, Nirvana is peace. Isn’t that something for which we are all looking?
Now, try to hold back your eye roll or pardon my ASSumption, but I’m a Christian. I may not have some traditional Christian views, but for me Jesus is, “the way the truth and the life.” There’s a popular song that has a lyric that says, “You are God, and that’s just the way it is.” That’s pretty much my view. I share that part of myself, because words are important. They can breakdown and shatter relationships or they can build them up. Typically, they do both.
Anyway, meditation is important. I encourage you to look into it. While you are at it, look into focused prayer. I like it the best, and I believe it may be more the transformative choice.
Speaking of healing, I was in a car accident a few years ago. Both legs were broken, and initially there was uncertainty about my walking again. Yoga is one of the reasons why I am walking as well as I am. Check it out.

“Expect to encounter adversity in your life, remembering that you live in a deeply fallen world. Stop trying to find a way that circumvents difficulties.” – Sarah Young
Serve the Lord with gladness, come before His presence with singing. – Psalm 100:2
When I realized that pastoral ministry was not for me and that we are all called to some sort of mission, life began to change for me. My perspective on the world became less self-centered and more filled with anticipation. I anticipate God to move in my life, and He does. I don’t always like the way He does it, but it happens and I roll with it. Sometimes, I feel a part of the process and other times I don’t. For now though, I know that I am doing my best to hold it together, one day at a time. It’s just part of recovery.
Letting go of control is an issue for me. It’s probably a guy thing, but it’s like I’ve jumped off the high dive and I am in that moment when you’re in the air. Meanwhile, your gut and heart are bunched together. Stuck in a moment….
