If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Through the years, I have come to love beginnings and endings. The Creator of the universe gave us beginnings and endings. Sunrises break open new days. Sunsets end full days. Calendars break years into beginnings and endings. 

January is a new beginning. If we plan well, 2016 will end with many accomplishments. If we live like the bumper sticker, “Don’t follow me, I am lost,” next December will come upon us with little to show for our efforts.

One of my favorite ways to plan well, is to invite folks I care about to a Friday with Fred. 36 reservations have been made for those who want a life Time Out to laugh, plan, enjoy good food, and play some lifeball, the worlds’ best game!

You are invited to join me. There is only room for 36 reservations. If you can’t join me, maybe you will have your own lifeball with your crucial others.

Hebrews 10:24 is in my Bible Hall of Fame-Crowell Library.

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” Hebrews 10:24

Let us consider how we can stimulate one another to love and good deeds.

“Let” means to accept an invitation

“Consider” means to chew, to ruminate 

“Stimulate” means to stir, like a jockey wins a derby

Let’s stir and inspire those in our world; especially family, to love and good deeds.
