CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Capn crunch sent to me in a group text w a few others and really like it so I wanted to share the following ;

For a small amount of perspective at this moment, imagine you were an American born in 1900. When you are 14, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday with 22 million people killed. Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until you are 20. Fifty million people die from it in those two years. Yes, 50 million.

When you’re 29, the Great Depression begins. Unemployment hits 25%, global GDP drops 27%. That runs until you are 33. The country nearly collapses along with the world economy. When you turn 39, World War II starts. You aren’t even over the hill yet.

When you’re 41, the United States is fully pulled into WWII. Between your 39th and 45th birthday, 75 million people perish in the war and the Holocaust kills six million. At 52, the Korean War starts and five million perish.

At 64 the Vietnam War begins, and it doesn’t end for many years. Four million people die in that conflict. Approaching your 62nd birthday you have the Cuban Missile Crisis, a tipping point in the Cold War. Life on our planet, as we know it, could well have ended. Great leaders prevented that from happening.

As you turn 75, the Vietnam War finally ends. Think of everyone on the planet born in 1900. How do you survive all of that? A kid in 1985 didn’t think their 85 year old grandparent understood how hard school was. Yet those grandparents (and now great grandparents) survived through everything listed above.

Perspective is an amazing art. Let’s try and keep things in perspective. Let’s be smart, help each other out, and we will get through all of this. In the history of the world, there has never been a storm that lasted. This too, shall pass.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Most of you have probably heard about Advocare, a dietary supplement company.  You may know that this multi-level marketing company was determined by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to be operating as a pyramid scheme. Subsequently, Advocare switched from multi-level marketing to single-level direct selling.  Many highly compensated Advocare employees were released in July 2019.  Julie and I knew a few of those impacted and it could have been a devastating  blow to their well being.  Suddenly $30,000 to $60,000 per month income was gone.  Think about that.  Yes, that’s more money than most of us imagine to ever earn on a regular basis but losing it would certainly be traumatic.

I remember talking to one of those involved and I will always remember her words, “You know there’s a reason the windshield is bigger than the rear view mirror.  You need to focus your attention on what’s ahead of you … not what’s behind you.”

Those words fit very well with a present I bought Julie for her birthday last year.  In black script letters, printed on a white 20″ x 30″ canvas poster are the chorus lyrics from a 1922 hymn by Helen Lemmel.

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

in the light of His glory and grace.”

The Wise Man

People have been coming to the wise man, complaining about the same problems every time. One day he told them a joke and everyone roared in laughter.

After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled.

When he told the same joke for the third time no one laughed anymore.

The wise man smiled and said:

“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?”

Moral of the story:

Worrying won’t solve your problems, it’ll just waste your time and energy.
