Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I firmly believe that most folks pay more attention to things that are really not that important, such as magazines, the internet and all of today’s technology than to what is really import and that would be our spiritual lives. If we were to pay more attention to our Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ, that many of our other desires that we think important, will be given attention to to us, as God would will us to have. He is lways faithful to give us what is good for us. Have a blessed day today and always.

I've posted before that I can't say what day it is.....that got me dragged into the HR office.... some people just have no sense of humor!

Paying attention was a lesson I learned right after my first command position. Me being me wanted to learn about what my troops were doing, so I started visiting all sections. When a young airman told me that I was the first commander to ever come to the shop I realized I'd stumbled on to something. I've paid attention to all aspects of any organization I've been with ever since.

I had a similar situation with me when I was a new Elder in my Church that I attended. I began calling all of the congregants under my care and I was surprised at the response of, “This is the first time that any Elder ever called me.” What a surprise and disappointment. Have a blessed day my friend.
