Welcome to Wise Men Wednesday, your weekly dose of Christian wisdom to thrive at home and in your business.
Posts published this week:
“When you first wakeup say a prayer thanking Him for a good night’s rest. When you hear a good song come on the radio think of Him and tell Him how grateful you are for beautiful music. Before each meal close your eyes, bow your head, and thank the Lord for the food, ask Him to bless it, and to be with you for the remainder of the day.
When you take a walk through the woods, watch the sun setting, or see the waves crashing on the beach take a moment and marvel at His creation. Allow your jaw to drop and your heart to be amazed. Look up into the sky and just think of how much capacity He has to loves you if He created a world as beautiful as ours.”
Being A Good Leader Takes Practice:
“Put effort in every single day to grow. As a leader you are never perfect and are never finished growing. That is why it’s fun to lead a team. You must hold yourself to the same standards of others and keep improving each year.”

Words of wisdom:
“Lastly, I must mention the discipline of time and romance. Years ago, in the Midwest, a farmer and his wife were lying in bed during a storm when the funnel of a tornado suddenly lifted the roof right off the house and sucked their bed away with them still in it. The wife began to cry, and the farmer called to her that it was no time to cry. She called back that she was so happy, she could not help it — it was the first time they had been out together in twenty years! In 1986, Psychology Today did a survey of 300 couples, asking them what keeps them together. One of the major “staying” factors was time spent together. Make sure you maintain this priority. Your calendar reveals what is important to you, so write her calendar into yours. Schedule weekly times together that do not just “happen.” Be creative. Date! Surprise her.” Disciplines of a Godly Man, by R. Kent Hughes
Have a great rest of the week!
