Liberty and Prosperity for February 3

Liberty Quote 02-03 Jakes

Bishop T. D. Jakes is Pastor of the Potter’s House, one of the largest churches in the United States, located in Dallas, TX. Pastor Jakes has seen more than his share of adversity in his life. Sometimes, when faced with great, difficult decisions, we look for the easy way out; and sometimes, the easy way has permanent consequences. Before making a bad decision, that can harm your life, or the life of others, permanently, STOP. Take a mental and spiritual break so you can gather your thoughts, get advice from a trusted family member, friend, priest, or counselor. Give yourself the time to consider the consequences of your decisions. If the situation you find yourself in is temporary, then don’t make a decision to do something that will have permanent consequences. #LibertyQuotes #SuccessQuotes #YouEconomy #BelieveInYourself #MicroBusiness #EntrepreneurLife #PersonalGrowth #MAGA #MakeCaliforniaGreatAgain #SundayInspiration

Where do I find God?

Almost every week, I make the long, and very lonely drive from my home in La Quinta, to the City of El Centro so that I can teach adult students in Business, Marketing, and Leadership.  Over the past few years, I have marveled at the beauty of the desert and of the Salton Sea.  I have wondered if this was the type of landscape that awaited the ancient Hebrews in their exodus from Egypt.  Is this a similar landscape to that which our Lord, Jesus Christ and the Apostles walked, during the first century A.D.  Certainly, as the sun is setting, and you look out over the Salton Sea, you cannot help but be overwhelmed by the beauty and majesty of God’s creation.

But you also can’t help the comparison to the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee. All around, you find Palms, Dates, Figs, and Citrus of every type.  Grapes for both the table and for fermenting into wine grow in abundance.  The sea itself, is a source of food (all varieties of Saltwater Fish), recreation, and healing.  The environment, although harsh, provides everything necessary for the sustenance and propagation of human life.

So let me ask all of you the obvious question, Should the Salton Sea be protected as a symbol of Judeo/Christian history?  The Salton Sea has existed for millennia.  It originally was a part of what we now call the Gulf of California.  Then, for the past 1000 years or so, known as Lake Cahuilla after the Colorado River dredged out enough material to create a sand bar between the ocean and the inland sea.  The Salton Sea, as we now know it, is dying.  A symbol of the neglect and inefficiency of the Federal, State, and local governments to decide how to protect this incredible resource.

I have a plan, but it is a plan that needs the backing of the local residents, as well as the residents of much of Southern California.  A plan to restore the Salton Sea, to provide clean energy, and to ensure a sustainable water supply to millions.  If you would like to hear my plan, please let me know.

This post was inspired by an article by Susanna Spencer in the National Catholic Register.


Peace through Strength

I believe that nearly everyone would agree that the Dalai Lama is a man of peace.  However, it appears that the Dalai Lama and Ronald Reagan have much in common.  You maintain peace, by being strong in the face of your enemies.  Even in the eyes of the Dalai Lama, a schoolgirl has the right to defend herself when confronted by evil.

Designed for Success (055)

Happy Success Sunday everyone,

I’ve fallen behind in my posts, so for the next few days I’m going to give you all two (or possibly three) different quotes for your consideration.

Today’s 2nd Success Quote is from Dr. Ben Carson. Dr. Carson is best known for his gifted hands that have performed miraculous surgeries on children.  Dr. Carson is also a devout Christian and credits all of his personal and professional success to God.  Dr. Carson reminds all of us that to truly achieve success in this life, we must believe in something bigger than ourselves.  I wholeheartedly agree with Dr. Carson.  Let’s all take this Sunday afternoon to learn and benefit from the wisdom of others. Especially those who have achieved success in business, politics, religion, and life.

Here is another of my favorite quotations on SUCCESS!

To your health, happiness, prosperity!
