My Teacher - Experience

Those who know me, would realize that when I interact with them, I tend to be direct. Up to this week, I was told that by someone who just met me fleetingly. Having heard it so often, I paused to think about how my characteristic trait was affecting others with whom I interacted. Further probing revealed that though direct, I am not brash.

Let's turn to what excites me immensely - Business. 
I just love it when people bring me business problems that seem insurmountable. It may seem strange but some people like puzzles, I like the ones that have real life effects.

I'm grateful to be living in one of the world's best systems - Free Enterprise. Where we know "If it is to be, it is up to me".  Thank God we are alive at one of the best times ever. 
Now, I'm going back…

The questions that more readily come to mind as a parent consist of thoughts like:

How can I save my child?I have to find a way to afford the expense of this illness to keep my child alive. Failure is not an option. What opportunities are there?Who can help me save my child? Lord, show us a way to help people better experience life as they battle with this seemingly incurable illness. We place all our trust in you that though there's no cure as yet. You will help us in our quest to find one. Thank you Almighty God for your grace and favor through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
This is the plea of many a parent, their supporters, their friends and family. It is the cry of all mankind affected by this illness either direc…
