Tempted, at Mid Life?

“Virtue alone can’t build character.  Temptation must have a hand”.  — Unknown

Who knew temptation actually had a positive side to it?

Make it a GREAT mid-life day, because if you don’t, who will.  If not today, when?  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Mid Life Crisis?

You’ve heard me say this before, I believe whether we have a mid life crisis or a mid life celebration – it’s our attitude that determines our label.

Same with our entire life.  How far we go in it depends on our attitude.

And ultimately, it’s the same for everything’…….

“In all our actions, God considers the intention:  whether we act for Him or for some other motive”.  — St. Maximus the Confessor

Make it a GREAT Thursday.  It’s up to you.   Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Define Life?

The adventure of life is to learn.  

The purpose of life is to grow.

The nature of life is to change.

The challenge of life is to overcome.

The essence of life is to care.

The opportunity of life is to serve.

The secret of life is to dare.

The spice of life is to befriend.

The beauty of life is to give.

However you define life, I hope you find it abundantly today.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Bank of Bad Habits?

“All our corrupt passions must be subdued, and a complex habit of virtues such as meekness, lowliness, faith, hope and love of God and man be implanted in their room before we can have the least title to enter into the Kingdom of God”.  — George Whitefield

While George Whitefield  suggests complex habits, may I be so bold as to suggest that we try to keep it simple?

Mid Life Simplicity?

Hardly.  But the idea sure beats, Mid Life Complexity.

Make it a GREAT Tuesday, because if you don’t, who will.  If not today, when?  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
