Work Hard

 So they say honesty is the best policy.

If you’re looking for a job, you might want to take a cue for this guy’s now EPIC cover letter now gone viral.

He said,  “I won’t waste your time inflating my credentials, throwing around exaggerated job titles or feeding you any lines about how my past experiences and skill set alightn perfectly for an internship.  The truth is I have no unbelievable special skills or genius or eccentricities, but I will work hard for you..."

He sent it for an internship on wall street, now tons of people are trying to hire him.

If only people could be that honest with personal relationships.  I think it would work for Marriage, friendship, or dating.

It would be refreshing to hear, "Look I’m not going to say I can be the one that makes it all better, but I will work hard at loving you…"

Your Legacy

What a great day in America.  I’m always amazed on Inauguration Day, the day a President is sworn into office.  It’s a beautiful celebration of freedom, and democracy in action.  (plus the fashion is fun to watch too).

Politics (and fashion) aside,  It’s pretty amazing that this is happening on a day we are also honoring Martin Luther King, Jr and his efforts in the civil rights movement.

I don't know if this is possible, but we can when we are in heaven be able to look down at what's going on down here on earth. If it's possible, I can imagine he'd be really proud of how far we've come.  

I don't know about you, but events like this make me think about my legacy, the kind of impact I want to have on people.  

You don't have to be in politics to make a difference.  I heard this 10 year old girl,Natasha Leininger ,speak over the weekend… who is fighting herself for freedom for kids in Uganda.  She raised $25,000 to build a home for orphans and widows.  Why?

Because she said, "God didn’t save us to be safe..." 

Wow, makes you think about what ways you can be a little more "dangerous" for God...
