  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

April 30, 2013 - Attitude Affects Everything

By Doug Clay

Charles Swindoll says, "Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It's more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It's more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church ... or a home!"

Attitude is huge. Airplane pilots often use the word "attitude" to describe their horizontal relationship with the runway. If their "attitude" isn't aligned properly, the plane will make contact with the ground at the wrong angle and crash.

The good news is you can choose what type of attitude you want to have every day!

By definition, attitude is your inward disposition toward other things — such as people or circumstances. So it's your attitude that comes into play whenever you have to deal with someone or something other than yourself.

Part of being a follower of Christ is to work on developing your attitude to be like His.

"In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus" (Philippians 2:5, NIV).

So, if your attitude to life, circumstances, and even other people is to be like Christ's, then you need to feed your attitude with good stuff.

"Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise" (Philippians 4:8, NLT).

Keep a good attitude and have a safe landing.
