Living on Purpose

Lots of people have written all sorts of obvious stuff about living on purpose.  What isn't plainly obvious is what happens as a result of not living on purpose. If you want to see the outcome of letting others determine your destiny, truly listen to any person who blames others or "the system" for their lot in life.

Inversely, listen to any person who considers him/her…

     Friendship is a unique form of loving.  A good friend can be like those cool smooth stones you sometimes find. You know…the ones that have lots of patterns and colors in them.  I like to have them in my pocket and hold them in my hands sometimes.  They give me courage.  Friendship is a little miracle.  It always surprises me.  We can try very hard to be a friend to someone.  But, the moment when we realize “this is a friend” is always unexplainable.   A friend is permanent.  He is…

What Is Your Play Personality?

As adults, we can make playing around sophisticated. Just because you weren't the class clown doesn't mean you are doomed to be the party pooper - play comes in a variety of personalities.

by Pete Ferguson

Yesterday I discussed why active play is important for keeping your brain energized, unlike the Sea Squirt who devours its…

"Unproductive" vs. "Scrum"

I opened one of my sermons a few weeks ago by saying that when you are in college, copying someone else's work is called plagiarism, and punishable by death; after college, in the working world, copying someone else is called "working smart"...yes, my blog title is the combining of two thought processes from two other blogs...

From what I see, these are two sides of the same coin...the very nature of our being here is that we are all trying to get to some place better, or more…

My art My heart

Doing art, Painting, sketching, story, has owned my heart for as long as I can remember.  I think all children have the seeds of art in their souls.  Some are never encouraged to imagine deeply or to recognize the value of their own thoughts.   My own art is a reflection of the relationships, and…

Pat's BBQ: You would think that you are at Blues City Cafe in Memphis

This was my third trip to Pat's BBQ and each time it gets better. Rachel was getting ready to leave town so the three of us went out for dinner.

The first impression of Pat's is definitely wondering why it's in that particular location. It's an industrial part of town with a few shabby…

Stop Eating Your Brain!

by Pete Ferguson

The Sea Squirt is the coach potato of the sea, sitting in a stream of nutrients with no activity until it literally devours its own primitive cerebral ganglia "brain."

As a "tadpole," however, the Sea Squirt's tiny brain is active as it seeks out nutrients, moving about, exploring and growing.

As the Sea Squirt develops into an adult,…

What defines me?

What defines me?

 My vision is what defines me.  Do I see through eyes clouded with anger or resentment?  Or do I see through eyes of anticipation and trust.  Adversity happens in everyone’s life.  Whether the glass is half empty or half full depends entirely on how we narrate the…

14 Lessons That Will Change Your Life (Plus 14 Ridiculous Pictures)

About 36 months ago, I became acutely aware of a reality that would forever change my life.

Experience is a wonderful teacher but often a painful one as well.

Tears, depressions, anxiety, insecurity, doubt... They are my friend. But only because they are part of my past. They are a horrible bed partner. But a lovely ex-girlfriend. ... That was inappropriate.

36 months ago is when the dream reached…

If you have read my blogs in the past, you know I am in serious love with my Momma.  She is the best thing since sliced bread, cameras on a phone, DVRs, and, well, anything else you might imagine.

Recently, I have been concerned that Momma is not eating enough vegetables.  So, I have started taking her out for salad once a week.  We have a McAlister’s Deli in our town, and Momma can make a Savannah Chopped Salad disappear.  Now the point…

Fatherhood Fridays: One Month

“A few days after we came home from the hospital, I sent a letter to a friend, including a photo of my son and some first impressions of fatherhood. He responded, simply, 'Everything is possible again.' It was the perfect thing to write because that was exactly how it felt.” 

― Jonathan Safran…

Just Cruisin'

Fall is almost here and before you know it we are going to be shoulder deep in the Christmas season! Along with that season, comes some pretty cold weather, especially here in TN. Personally, I can’t wait until February. Why? Because that is when my wife Lesa and I take our annual escape to the Caribbean! Every year we join Dan and Joanne Miller for their 48 Days Cruise. This year’s theme is Wisdom Meets Passion.…

Tomato Pie: Appetizer-Yes! Main Dish-Yes! Dessert-Probably Not!

If you are looking for a quick appetizer to bring to a summer BBQ, this is it. Due to this past week being very busy, as of Saturday morning I did not know what we were going to bring to a family BBQ that evening. Having a few tomatoes on our counter from some neighbors, I remember a recipe Rachel had made,…

It's Time for a Lobotomy

Every person who has ever lived has one thing in common - 24 hours a day, 365.25 days a year. What distinguishes between success and failure is our consistency in our path for excellence. It's time to fire the part of your brain where "can't" lives and breaths.
