Merry Christmas 2008

December 25, 2008

It’s Christmas morning 2008.  This is a joyful day.   It’s a day of celebration,  It’s the day that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, my Lord and savior!  That alone is good news, but the fact that he still lives and still loves you and me is even better news.  But the best news is that he wants us all to have a personal relationship with him and share in his inheritance.  It doesn’t cost a thing, all you have to do is say that you want a personal relationship with him and invite him into your life.  Then you gotta believe, have faith, and seek him by reading and learning his holy word, (The Bible), and he will direct your path through the Holy Spirit that he promised all of us that love him (John 14:15-21).

Our country is going through some rough waters.  Unemployment is at an all time high. I’m even looking for work.  Our financial lives are in turmoil.  Our country is still at war.  The definition of marriage is being debated in the media.  However, there are some signs of hope.  We have CHANGE coming to the White House.  Gas prices have fallen back to a reasonable level; and I still believe that God will supply all of my needs.

Happy Birthday Jesus.  Thank you for loving me.  Please order my steps and help me take care of my family.  And help me do what is right and pleasing in your sight.  Amen.


If you have a job lead, in Chicago,  for me (I have 16 years of  marketing and sales experience) send an email to  I will send you a personal reply of thanks for serious leads.

Exxon Made Nearly $1500 A Second!

July 31, 2008

DeaconDavid’s comment: These numbers from Exxon are staggering. Can you imagine making $1500 every second of the day and night for three months. That’s the pace that Exxon made money during the second quarter of 2008. That’s profit not revenue. $1500 in profit every second. I’m impressed with the numbers, but the US should seriously consider some alternatives to oil, like wind power.

Exxon Mobil once again reported the largest quarterly profit in U.S. history Thursday, posting net income of $11.68 billion on revenue of $138 billion in the second quarter.
