More of HIM and less of ME

So I was thinking about some things and people in my life, and how I am perceived and perceive myself. I spend a lot of time alone so it gives me a chance to reflect on who I am, and who people think I am. The longer I live the more I see just how easy it is to only think of myself and my own desires. Perhaps much of my life has been lived doing just that. So when people think or maybe I start to think that I'm a great person, I have to take a step back and reflect. In my reflection this prose of sorts came into my mind.
   
     You should be glad that its not ME. You see ME is very concerned about growing his finances, and they don't grow when you give money away. If it were up to ME then anyone that asked for money would be laughed at and mocked for thinking I would work hard so they could get it for nothing. ME would never give money to people anyway since they probably won't even appreciate it. 
     You should be thankful that its not ME. You see ME is concerned about his own happiness. ME would never let things or people in his life that are negative, so ME would only associate with people that could do something that makes his life better.
     You should be praying that its not ME. You see ME wants to rule the world and make things work the way he thinks it should. ME would eliminate the people he doesn't like or thinks are of no use. ME has no forgiveness and would punish any that dared do him wrong, with swift retribution. 
     What you need to understand about ME though is that their is HIM. You see HIM will make ME give to those in need and be charitable with money, not seeking even the slightest of acknowledgement. HIM will cause ME to think about the happiness of others and be self-less not selfish, even enduring pain to ease the suffering of others. HIM will humble and teach ME to love enemies like neighbors, as myself, forgiving as I am also forgiven.


     So for anyone that ever thinks it is ME, please understand that it is all HIM. Let HIM in your life so you don't become ME.

KANYE

So I was thinking about something I watched on TV more than a decade ago. I was watching this telethon raising money for victims of hurricane Katrina. Mike Myers was encouraging people to donate, and beside him was Kanye West supposedly doing the same. I say supposedly for Kanye because instead of sticking to the plan he decided to suddenly say "Bush doesn't like black people" stunning everyone including me and Mike Myers. Mr. Myers tried to keep it together, but that first look he gave Kanye was priceless. Kanye proceeded to go off on a tangent talking about his accountant or something, and finally they cut to someone else not on stage. That person wasn't prepared nor was the telethon prepared. We the audience were not prepared at the time.       Sometime later Mr. West is in the spotlight for interrupting Taylor Swift at an awards show to say Beyonce should have won. He showed a lack of class and respect for someone having their moment, and again many weren't …

Wisdom From My Grandfather

My grandfather died when I was six years old, so I didn't get to know him for very long. He has lived on with the life lessons he taught my mother. She recently shared one of them with me. She told me something he shared with her when she was growing up. He told her that her and her sisters were all pretty girls and smart as well. Men/boys would be after them, but they shouldn't just put up with or accept one that didn't treat them right.
     So with that said I want to briefly talk about something that I think is important, especially for women, and that is self-esteem. I have been close to many women throughout my life, whether as friends, family, or relationships, and something I have come to recognize is that I have known way too many that have low self-esteem.
     First off let me share something I heard a comedian say, self-esteem is how you feel about yourself, other people really can't change that unless you let them. To all the women out there, please know t…

Bad Time To Be A Man

So I have been hearing that this is a bad time to be a man. Accusations against men are ruining our lives and reputations. At no time in american history has it been so hard to be a man. I hear things like this and it makes me wonder what people know of history. So I wanted to share a brief summary of a few moments in our history, to hopefully give people a little perspective.


                                                        January 1923 Rosewood, FL
     People from the neighboring town of Sumner as well as others who came from the region, came to Rosewood to help local law enforcement. They were drawn to the area to help with the hunt for a man that was accused of assualting a woman in Sumner. The local police tried to maintain order, but in the end surrendered to mob justice. Events spiraled out of control and the town was razed.


                                                        May 1921 Tulsa, OK
     A local shoeshiner was accused of assaulting an elevator operator.…
