T.G.I.Monday – and for the Blessing of Gainful Employment

At the Arch   No task is too small to deserve your best effort.  Whatever job it is that you accept payment for doing, give it your absolute all.  If it’s an entry-level position, you won’t be there forever.  And both your character and the people around you will benefit if you act on the principle that even the humblest work is noble in God’s eyes.  Seek to please Him and you can find gratification in the most mundane of undertakings.  (53)

It’s never too early to have plans and objectives in place.  Set a good example for others as you pursue them.  Get into a field of work that you love, and build your career on a reputation of honesty and trustworthiness.  (49)

If you learn early on not to waste energy on things you cannot change, it’s easier to focus on living a full, productive life.  What will follow is the understanding that family, friends, and health are more important than accumulating wealth and the stress of climbing the professional ladder.  (36)

Recipe. According to Encarta, "a list of ingredients and instructions for making something." The thesaurus offers the alternate terms, "formula, guidelines, directions, steps, technique."

And what is the "something" we are aiming for here? Simply a life of robust good health in every important area - spiritual, physical, cognitive, and emotional.

To that end we offer inspirational real-life stories about PEOPLE OF FAITH AND COURAGE; menus and cooking directions meant to fuel your creative inclinations and your healthy body in the form of MUSINGS OF A MIDWESTERN FOODIE; and ADVICE FOR LIFE from the perspective of those who have lived it to maturity. (Click on the green category tabs at the top of this page to learn more about each section.)

Have a taste and see what you think. If you like what we are serving up, please tell your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to stop by for a visit, too.
