Stop The Rush and Smell The Flowers


I see people frantically texting away and sometimes wonder how they would have survived “back in the day,” when “texting” involved a 30-pound typewriter, messy correction fluid or an eraser, a trip to the post office, standing in line to buy a stamp, waiting a week or two for the letter to get to its destination, and waiting another week or two for a reply.

Why is everyone so darn busy? Do we even think of the health implications?

Reflections:Isolate Negative Words


When a person is in a depressed mood, everything can seem depressing. So once you’ve put a halt to negative thoughts, replace them with good thoughts.
Sometimes, your inner voice can tell you that, you are “only a secretary.” or “just a salesman.”
With the word “only” or “just” your jobs becomes downgrading and, by extension, yourselves.

Reflections:What Are You Thinking?


Take a moment to reflect on great men and women who have gone before you- those mentioned in the Bible, and others since that time- you will note how each lived for Christ and accomplished great things in His name. Some of them, such as those listed in Hebrews 11, never received all that was promised them during their time on earth.

Reflections:Lets Decide Now!


Why do some people succeed, while others always seem to fail? How can we define success?

Is success the teacher who is teaching school because that’s what he or she wanted to do? Or the mother who wanted to become a wife and mother and is doing a great job of it? Or the salesperson who wants to become a top notch salesperson and grow with the organization? Or the entrepreneur who starts their own company because that was their dream?

Reflection:Be a Good Listener


Good listening takes effort. Notice the traits of the people whom you enjoy talking to, the good listeners. They show their interest with their eyes, posture, and the ways they react. It’s a sort of indescribable mood that says, I enjoy listening to you. You’re important to me. A calmness and patience about them tells you, Take your time. I have nothing more vital to do at the moment than to hear what you have to say.

Reflections:Letter From God


A letter from God
You're on a hotline with someone special on the other end, someone who can really help you. Someone who has answers, complete with landing gear--specific answers tailor made for you in your situation.
Is that hard to believe? You may feel like you've heard or read many such promises before. Each time, they failed to deliver, even those that were advertised as "guaranteed for life." You may have believed those promises and bought into them, devoting your time and effort to attaining the rewards they painted in glowing colors before you. Now, maybe you're not so sure anymore. You may have lost your job, your financial stability, perhaps even your dream home--and worst of all, there doesn't appear to be any hope of a quick recovery. Everything you loved and valued feels like it could slip away any minute.
But will it?

Today Is World Water Day


Contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid and polio. Absent, inadequate, or inappropriately managed water and sanitation services expose individuals to preventable health risks. This is particularly the case in health care facilities where both patients and staff are placed at additional risk of infection and disease when water, sanitation and hygiene services are lacking. Globally, 15% of patients develop an infection during a hospital stay, with the proportion much greater in low-income countries.
