If your head is filled with worries about tomorrow, it isn’t spilling out hope for today. A newspaper stand certainly doesn’t understand this concept.
Where did October Go? It appears October flew by in my life. Thankfully, I learned a valuable trick that, in the end, slowed the whole month down.
The power of recognition is in the giving, not the receiving. The moment you feel you deserve recognition is the most suitable time to give it to someone else. Be grateful you feel as if you’re making a difference and cherish the fact you are. There are people moving mountains today who feel as if they might be kicking at pebbles. Let them know they are essential, and let them know what they do matters.
In a word that fights fire with fire. We must consume that fire and not give it back. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the Sin-Eater.

Christ’s whole point of addressing His Disciples wasn’t to find out what others had to say about Him; He already knew that. No, the real question was much more personal: “who do you say that I am?”
In a contemporary world full of opinions and “truths,” Christ is still asking us this question. Where does your answer come from?
