I hear a lot of excuses at the bank. You name it and I've probably heard it. But the most common one is, "But I'm not a bad person! I mean.....I'm not bad! I'm a good person!"


Following along that note, today on my igoogle home page, my Wikihow feed had an article entitled "How to Be Good". (You can check it out here if you like. ) What amazes me is that the term "good" is never defined. How can you be "good" if you don't know what that means? And if it really depends on your own code of ethics, then how can you ever know for sure that what you're doing is actually "good" or not? And how can I tell someone else that they are being "bad"?

Fortunately, these thoughts don't keep me awake at night. I have a life manual that defines good and bad for me, and when in doubt, I can ask the One who is the epitome of goodness itself, Jesus Christ, the only perfect One.

"He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
Micah 6:8

Launch Day

Hi. Remember me? I used to post on here every once in a while. And then summer happened. :) Anywho, I'm back now...and I'll try to be more vigilant from now on!!

Most of you already know this, but I have started my part-time working hours this week -- yay for me!! It will be so refreshing to have more time at home and to also have more time to fit in piano and guitar students. Yes, you read that right, guitar students. Yikes!! I'm not really sure how I'm going to actually teach guitar, but I'm going to give it my best shot. And expect payment for it. ;) But seriously, I am hoping to gain many more students, specifically piano, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I might be getting more than my fair share of beginning guitarists as well! It should be exciting!!

So tomorrow is my second big launch day. Earlier in the summer I went about putting up flyers EVERYWHERE that held my newly created business cards and placed ads in the weekly paper. (Click on the picture to see an enlarged version.) Now I'm about to have my second launch day. I'm going to replenish all my business cards and flyers, as well as talk to the music teachers at the local schools and give my business card to local churches. I'm praying that the Lord blesses my efforts and provides me with a collection of students to pour my heart into. :)

I'll keep ya posted!
