"Eco-Friendly Grass"~GREEN Inspirations~April 23, 2011

When you're filling the Easter baskets and run out of the "grass" to place in the bottom of the basket, here's a cheap alternative to the plastic "grass"...If you still have one of those older model paper shredders that shreds in strips, simply run old, wrinkled gift wrap, colorful junk mail or used colored printer paper through it to make your own "eco-friendly" filler...And when Easter… Continue

To crucify or not

I went to church tonight already in a somber mood from the day. While praying during the silent, non-responsive times, a wooden cross was brought out. As I watched them bringing it down the isle my day flashed before me. I am serving on a jury that will soon decide the fate of other people. What would I do if I vote they are guilty and send innocent people to be locked up? Or what if I vote they are innocent and free them when they are guilty? What about the victims? What about their… Continue

Toyota and the outside enviroment

When a company becomes as large as Toyota they need to try to predict and create plans for outside forces.  With the earthquake in Japan and the radiation leaks, Toyota has been forced to close one of its major parts manufacturing plants.  This has caused them to put all of their American production plants on a three day production run. 


Large companies need to be…

Stay on Target

Stay on Target


Entry #67

Mark: Saturday January 2nd 2010, Susan, her kids and I were on our way down to Tennessee. I drove the first half and then gave way to Susan. We made the trip in good time even with stopping to see family in southern Michigan.

Sunday morning we went to church at The River; service time had changed and we were about half hour late and missed praise and worship.  We were just in time for the lesson. It felt…

Who is Teaching Who?

So yesterday was my daughter’s 4th birthday, which we are celebrating today, and I am forced to include the cliché mantra all parents know and say… “Man how time flies!”  I am reminded of the hours spent in delivery 4 years ago (although we all know I had the easy job) and the brutally magnificent reality that from that moment on I am and always will be a father.  


The lessons I have learned as a father have been extremely valuable, and not always easy to learn. …

What We Can Give

Our possessions are things we earned or we are still paying for because we wanted them. When we leave this earth, none of these things will go with us. Our rewards in heaven will be earned by the things we do on earth not by the things we have on earth. It’s time we looked at what we have done rather than what we have. It’s time for us to make a change to make a difference. Rather than looking at what else we can get, let's look at what we can give.

"Deer Deterrent"~GREEN Inspirations~April 22, 2011

If the deer are foraging your favorite flowers/plants/trees/vegetables, here are some "safe" methods to deter them without harm...Hang bars of deodorant soap placed in smelly old tube socks/knee high stockings on/near the trees/shrubs that they take a liking to (I've read that "Original" Irish Spring works great)...Anything with a human scent like hair (from your local barber/hairdresser… Continue

Think GIFT and Don’t be Selfish

Don’t be afraid of the impossible. You know that the impossible is what we all want deep down, but we need that as our vision regardless. This gives us direction, a place to achieve, or aim for. What matters is how we are approaching that target today; or what’s realistic now. Typically, you’ll find that the further you approach your vision along the way, the more possible it appears to become.


Knowing the impossible, we can make “possibles” happen right…

Being Innovative

So my competition is tomorrow and I'm still not doing much about it.

I just spent the past 30 minutes surfing and talking to myself trying to practice on my presentation style.

I believe that our product that my team and I are gonna compete with is completely innovative and fun!

But we're all afraid that our presentation will pull us down and as a result, we won't be able to win the competition.

Anyway, It's Good Friday and I gave Church a miss today.

Now I Sleep CD finally released!!!

Two years ago I attended a 48 Days Roundtable with Dan Miller, Kevin Miller, Chuck Bowen, and Kent Julian.  The greatest lesson I learned was that success comes from using your passions, skills and experience to serve others. Up until that point, my solo piano music was about me.

As the weeks progressed I spent a lot of time in prayer asking God for direction on how to do that as a solo piano composer. One morning I got the most unusual, amazing answer.

I was inspired by the …

Will Life's Curveball's Strike You Out or Do You Have a Big Enough Bat?

Life is unpredictable. One moment it can seem as if you are on top of the mountain, winning at life, and in a great place. Then, at the blink of an eye, life throws a curve ball (your car breaks down, you or a loved one gets sick, an unexpected home repair is needed). Question is, will…

The Uniqueness in Each of Us Strengthens All of Us

I'm going through our Family Creed and addressing each line.  The next one up is "We believe...the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us." This line is actually why I chose this family creed.  It is so powerful.  Read this again and soak it in--the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us.…

The Notion Picture

Did you know that your reality has more to do with how you perceive life than most people care to think? We’re on auto-pilot, coasting, drifting, and just moving with life. We’re not deciding anything, but reacting to everything. Why is that?


Perhaps drifting is just so much easier to do. Well, easy doesn’t always get the cake. When we react, we’re holding pre-conceived notions about what our world is like. We’re not dreaming of the future, we’re living and reacting to…
