I have not posted in awhile (busy life), and this is way out of sequence.
Inspired by Chapter 14, The Sixth Sense, of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
I call it the FIRST SENSE – because it is strong when
we are born and diminishes as we grow, due mainly to
Suggestions of others received through our developing
five physical senses.
Hill’s little book, TGR, is a guide to uncovering our
buried Sense. The first nine chapters lay the
groundwork of mental skills needed in preparation. The
next four chapters introduce Hill’s philosophy of the
Chemistry of the Mind. After THIS chapter on the Temple
of Wisdom, Hill concludes by exposing the things that
erect a wall between us and our First Sense.
Yes, I said “little book”. Tackle Hill’s “Law of
Success in Sixteen Lessons” sometime. Now, THAT is a
big book. TGR only scratches the surface.
Now, I believe my friend Sarah Thompson had uncovered a
strong First Sense.
Earlier this year, Sarah narrowly escaped two brushes
with death with the aid of some very brilliant
surgeons. Most people believed the miraculous events
signaled a new lease on a long life to come.
But Sarah left many clues in private conversation that
she knew otherwise. Her remaining time on Earth was to
She was criticized for craving certain “comfort foods”
during her recovery. But Sarah lived in the NOW and
wanted to enjoy her moments to the fullest.
I have seen folks spend weeks, months and years sitting
around waiting to die. A horrible waste of moments!
This was NOT Sarah. She spent her final days SERVING
Just a couple of weeks ago we were packing the
belongings of a neighbor who was moving. Sarah showed
up to pitch in, admonishing me, “If You needed help,
why didn’t You call me?”
I replied, “You are still recovering from open heart
But Sarah was a SERVANT. She truly had a Servant’s
Heart. Her final week was filled with teaching,
coaching and mentoring – both to a worldwide audience
Sarah was in one of her favorite places (her kitchen)
engaged in one of her Passions (cooking), when the Lord
suddenly called her home.
She left this world with many projects and plans still
on the burners. Although she experienced many amazing
events and places, many joys and sorrows in her life,
Sarah still had a quite full Bucket List when she died.
Many consider it tragic that one should die with a full
NO!!! A tragedy would be dying with an EMPTY BUCKET
A life without hopes, dreams and desires is no life at
I’ve heard the oft-repeated phrase, “Don’t die with
Your music still in You.”
Well, for many, many years now I’ve been letting my
music out – both literally and figuratively.
So, am I done?
Oh, HELL no!!!
I love You all and will NEVER stop BELIEVING IN YOU!
