Something simple

Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory. Albert Schweitzer (1875 – 1965)

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind. Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value. Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ESV

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

(1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ESV)

Unwavering Faith

Ask
Believe
Receive

Feel the power

A shred of doubt will unravel your life, if you have reservations then you are going down the wrong path, if you doubt yourself examine why.  Create goals and focus on the end result and the steps that get you there.  Your reality will follow your focus.

A $6,400 Toilet? A Bit Cheeky

 

It’s not that we don’t like the Numi, Kohler’s “most advanced toilet” (see video). Just the opposite. This stylish little throne, which we first worshipped at the recent International Builders’ Show, has features up the wazoo, including:

  • Motion-activated lid and seat. Sensors respond as you enter the room, meaning hands-free opening and closing of the cover. Motion at the floor-level prompts sensors to raise and lower seat.
  • Advanced bidet functionality: A self-cleaning wand features multiple options of water spray.
  • Integrated air dryer
  • Deodorizer
  • Heated seat and feet warming
  • Music
  • Touch-screen remote controls an automatic flush system, conserving water and boosting power.

Certainly, regular sessions with the Numi could make a “new me” out of most individuals. Except the thing costs nearly $6,400! Unfortunately, that fits the budget for only a select few who are flush with cash.

On paying taxes. Mark 12:13-17 ESV

And they sent to him some of the Pharisees and some of the Herodians, to trap him in his talk. And they came and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are true and do not care about anyone’s opinion. For you are not swayed by appearances, but truly teach the way of God. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not? Should we pay them, or should we not?” But, knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, “Why put me to the test? Bring me a denarius and let me look at it.” And they brought one. And he said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” They said to him, “Caesar’s.” Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they marveled at him.
