Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

"I wonder whose side God is on."

Posted on June 7, 2015 at 12:31am 0 Comments

Today marked the 71st anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1944) - the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe.  So today, my wife and I watched what I consider to be the best and most historically accurate World War II movie ever made: The Longest Day

There is a line in the movie spoken by Lt. Col. Benjamin Vandervoort (portrayed by John Wayne): "I wonder whose side God is on."

The line is repeated by Maj. Gen. Gunther Blumentritt (portrayed by Curt Jurgens).  My immediate…

From the last verse of a song sung by Kevin Spacey (portraying singer, Bobby Darin) called "The Curtain Falls":

People say I was made for this

I think of these lyrics as I wrap up the school year.  I thank God for what I get to do.  He gets all the glory.…
