I am starting a Procrastination Rally.
“The roof, the roof is on fire, and we don’t need no water. Let the procrastinator’s excuses burn. Burn down long to-do lists. Burn information hoarders. Burn time wasters. Burn baby burn!”
We miss deadlines; put off doing things we dislike, and gather way too much information. We live in an increasingly complex world; our information-gathering techniques can’t keep up with all the changing circumstances that affect our lives.
Stress and procrastination are not a necessary part of life. Procrastination is keeping you from achieving all that you can in life and stress is causing your life to be less than what God intended.
Learn when to say, “Enough!” Make the best decision and make a move. The important thing is to act— even if it means forcing yourself.
Rally around the cause: an end to procrastination. No more long to-do lists. No more hoarding information. No more time-wasters. Enjoy the blissful state of doing what needs to be done, right now.

A Civil Tongue
My earliest memory from school is this:
"It's a free country."
Later on, I recall:
"Everyone's entitled to their own opinion."
What I didn't know then was the underlying truth –
We're mostly soul, wrapped in flesh and blood.
Please send a few things
from bygone days to help us connect,
like common courtesy, tact and gentility.
Allow us to remember that we are a civilization,
And as such, really should be civil in our discourse.
Soften the tone for the sake of the children.
Bless us as we breathe life
into the world with our words.
"FOR THE EYES OF THE LORD RUN TO AND FRO
THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH,
TO SHOW HIMSELF STRONG ON BEHALF
OF THOSE WHOSE HEART IS LOYAL TO HIM."
