The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!


Good “Saturday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the weekend from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 11 March 2023!

Today’s Message is: “Two Lives Day!” Why Not?

“Can a strong leader have two lives? Why Not? The first life is their career, leading others to success, a vision, or to the next level of leadership. The second life is personal, believing in themselves, growing, learning, and taking care of their mental and physical well-being. As a leader you don’t have nine lives, but you can live two with the right balance between your career and personal life!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good afternoon Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I must confess that I have done things in my life, that I am not proud of. I always thought that I believed in and loved God, but I did not live a life that reflected that. I let the desires of the flesh guide me instead of the Will of God. When I finally realized that I needed to confess my sins to the Lord,I was given a new life to live for Him. I now live a life of love and and desire to share the life giving Word of God. Have a blessed day today and always.

I have to thank the military for forcing me to keep those 2 lives apart. Mandatory rest before flights, after pulling a week of alert, or after lengthy deployments forced that enjoy other things physically and mentality. I think we've all seen too many lives ruined because some can't separate careers from the good things life has to offer.
