This morning I was thinking about a couple things I really dislike, perhaps hate! I love you and goodbye. Not it is not that these are so bad, but all around me I see people using the words “I love you!” when they don’t. Any day you can go buy a pillow that says I love you, but it doesn’t.
Search the internet and you will soon find out that “I love you” is often used to ask for money, or sex, on Internet dating sites.
My second pet peeve, or perhaps the first, because I have hated it longer is the way “goodbye” it used. I have a feeling no one should ever say goodbye! So here is some suggestions for better communication in the area of I love you’s and Goodbye’s!
A lifetime may seem like a long time. However, it does not seem so when we examine it in terms of “miles” and “milestones” rather than years. Only one person in 10,000 lives to see their 100 birthday. Most people die within the Age of the Bonus Mile (right after the Age of the Last Mile).
I recently received an email that said, “My favorite movie and book is Dinotopia. Unfortunately though, it’s not very popular. Why do you have an interest in it and how did you hear about it?” I answered in this way…
I have been going through some really hard, depressing, and low times this month. Sometimes when you are so low, it is really hard to see the Lord. My good friend Marie sent me an email with this song, I See You Lord, by Aiza Seguerra. Of the song, she simply said…

An executive had an interesting print hanging in his office. It depicted a large rowboat stranded on a beach. Two oars rested gently in the sand, with the ocean at low tide twenty or thirty feet behind it. The boat looked too heavy to drag, too big to move. It was just stuck there in the sand.
The picture wasn’t a thing of beauty. It wasn’t inspiring. In fact, it was depressing. Here was this boat created for the water, a very nice boat made to dance on top of the ocean waves, stuck in the sand.
But at the bottom of the picture was a small caption that gave meaning to the otherwise unremarkable picture. It read: “The tide always comes back.”
“Put a dent in the universe simply means that you have to have a big, bold, clear, concise vision. I like to say that your vision should — fit in a Twitter post”, Consultant Carmine Gallo said. Gallo was referring to John F. Kennedy’s “man on the moon” declaration, adding: “We will put a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth by the end of the decade.”
“John Kennedy, in 1961, had a clear, concise vision. If Twitter had existed that day, he could have tweeted it,” Gallo said.
