I’m turning 50 this week.
I’m not yet fifty — it’s just two days away — but I thought I’d lead you through my journey, and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two that will help you on your journey.
Hurts < = > Heartache < = > Hope.
Fights < = > Frustrations < = > Faith.
While all of the above are part of relationships, which way the flow flows is dependent on love.
Will love overcome the hurt?
Will love overcome the fights?

It’s been a busier than normal week. As I’ve waged war with my schedule I have thought quite a bit about this insightful quote by John Powell.
“All of us are willing to admit pangs of hunger and feelings of emptiness inside us. We experience half-formed dreams and vague drives for something more than human resources can promise or produce. There is in each of us a dynamic, a mystique or drive that, unless detoured by humans selfishness, leads to search for God, whether we know it or not.“
I am searching for God. Today and every day I’m praying, “Please God help me…”
Dan Heisman one of my favorite authors wrote, “The #1 chess guideline [is] keep all your pieces safe! (And consider taking opponent’s pieces that are not safe). You must make all your decisions before you touch a piece…”

You were hoping for happiness, but you’re feeling like you don’t know what moves to make.
You were hoping to deal with change in your life, but you’ve been dealt a bad hand.
