Alfred Nobel ~


About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, he read his name in the obituary column.💥

The newspapers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake.💥

His first response was shock.💥

Am I here or there?💥

When he regained his composure, his second thought was to find out what people had said about him.💥

The obituary read, “Dynamite King Dies.”💥

And also “He was the merchant of death.”💥

This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words “merchant of death,” he asked himself a question, “Is this how I am going to be remembered?”💥

He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered.💥

From that day on, he started working toward peace.💥

His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize.💥

Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, we should step back and do the same.💥

1. What is your legacy?

2. How would you like to be remembered?

3. Will you be spoken well of?

4. Will you be remembered with love and respect?

5. Will you be missed?



Peace ✌️ Truth 🙌


I don’t understand some people’s problems with
wearing a mask.🤔
I grew up with no shoes, no shirtless, no service. 🤔

turned that into a civil rights issue as far as I know.🤔
When I go to a fancy restaurant and they require a
sports coat I don’t spit in their face.🤔

I wear a sports coat.🤔

When I go golfing and they require a collar, I don’t yell
and scream and turn it into something political.🤔

I wear
a shirt with a collar like I was asked to do.🤔

When I walk into a place of worship, if they ask me to
wear a head covering, I am polite and wear a head
covering. 🤔

I don’t rant about my God-given right to not
wear a head covering 🤔

Right now, we are being asked to wear a mask to make
everyone feels more comfortable about restarting
society. 🤔

I don’t understand all of the anger about that.🤔

I will wear a mask for the benefit of everyone 😌

It’s what I
am being asked to do. 🤔

And just like in the other
instances, I will do it because I don’t consider it an
infringement on any of my basic human rights. 🤔

It is
simply the polite thing to do for the common good. 😌

Yesterday the last key was broken ~


If we are to die to self, as we reflected upon yesterday, then we must seek the way of the just.

This is the path that is pleasing to God.

As I write this, we are preparing to once more remember the destruction of the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center in New York, the attack on the Pentagon and the flight that ended in a field in Pennsylvania.

The thousands of people that died came from many different countries and traditions. It doesn’t matter what the motivation was that brought about such destruction, it’s was not just.

Hatred and violence are not just. God created a good world, and we were given the responsibility to take care of it and that requires love not hate, peace not war. I am saddened by the fact that almost twenty years after this event people still hate and destroy one another. Fortunately a few weeks following September 11, 2001, people gathered together and prayed for peace and a more just world.

But, just like the Israelites that Isaiah was speaking to, we don’t learn. I don’t know where the next attack will come from, but I do know that unless we have a change of mind and heart and work for justice, it will come.

The Israelites would turn back to God and repent for a short time.

Their kings would get rid of the idols and tear down their altars and only worship God.

But it wouldn’t last, and they would once again be under attack and complain that God had abandoned them.

When bad things happen to us, we, too, complain that God has abandoned us.

The reality is that the Israelites and we have both abandoned God.

I pray that we will not see another September 11 massacre, but God can only prevent it if we are willing to do the work and act with justice and righteousness. ⚜️🙏⚜️


Peace 🙏⚜️


Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a stalled ox and hatred in addition to that.


Think back to your fondest memories of family meals. What made them memorable, the food or the togetherness? Would you trade those simple meals for a gourmet feast with people who bicker and fight with hostility? Most of us would not, for we recognise that the riches are comfort are not worth the cost of sacrificing peace and harmony.
