Don't Know Much!

“Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book
Don't know much about the French I took
But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be”

Sam Cooke hit the nail on the head when he penned the words to the song: “Don’t Know Much About History.”  In thinking about what I could blog about this week, one thing burst upon my mind as I thought: Ruthann and Natalie, your family!  Too many times I have taken for granted their love, kindness, and grace for me.  Sometimes I’m part IDIOT.  No one knows that better than my family but, they still claim me!  I am a blessed man.  
I Don’t Know Much…but what I do know…
I am truly blessed beyond my wildest dreams to have a wife and daughter whom I love and they love me…what a wonderful world this IS!     

Be Blessed,

R U successful?

What is success?  How do you know when you are…a success?  Some view success as a destination when the reality is, it’s a process.  Andy Stanley puts it this way: 

   "Success is remaining faithful to the process God has laid out for you.  Certainly there are significant and enjoyable mile markers along the way.  But success is not the mile marker.  Success is not the raise, promotion, recognition, Christian home, or wonderful children.  Those are simply enjoyable mile markers along the way.  Success is staying faithful to the process that contributed to those things becoming a reality.  Unfortunately, we often don’t consider ourselves successful until we experience the rewards."   
From the book: Visioneering, God’s blueprint for developing and maintaining personal vision.

Each new day is an opportunity to be successful.  I may not see many of the “rewards” of success but I know one day I will!  What are the areas you are a success?
