“Monday 5 Things”™…..Before You Grumble About Monday…..

Driving back and forth between Savannah and Jacksonville these past few weeks has given me a lot of windshield time to think, to pray, and to generally be thankful for all the incredible blessings in life. This morning’s M5T looks at changes that have affected all our lives.

“Monday 5 Things”™….. …..Chuck’isms…..

The current state of life for Ukrainians has brought many people, your scribe included, to their knees in prayer for a country under siege. I was reminded of a M5T that I wrote six years ago about one of the most prolific preachers that the world has known. Charles Spurgeon is said to have preached 3,500 sermons over 40 years. He was known for speaking clearly (with surprising wit and humor) and for making the bible relevant to everyone’s life. The profundity of his words is a legacy over 130 years later. This morning’s M5T considers some of my favorite Spurgeon quotes.

GoSouth: Atlanta

The one true capital of the South, Atlanta sits at the epicenter of an electrifying energy that is transforming the region. On the one hand, it is a metropolis writ large, with arts, culture and a spirit that is second to none. Ask anyone this side of the Mason Dixon how to get to “The City” and they’ll point you here. On the other, it still carries that timeless Southern authenticity and hospitality that sets the South apart. Carrying the best of the past into a dazzling future it is creating for itself, Atlanta is the standard bearer for the new South, with so much to explore.

“Monday 5 Things”™….. Shake It Up …..

For as long as I can remember I’ve had this thing about anthills. Whenever I come across one, I have this insatiable need to poke it, kick it, and mess with it. I continue to enjoy a child-like fascination of the structured chaos that ensues with the ants. This mornings M5T looks at shaking things up.

“Monday 5 Things”™….. Dreams …..

Dreamland. Dreamer. Sweet Dreams. Dream On. Dreams. Dream Weaver. Dream Cars. Six songs and sixty-four very fast Italian ponies. Songs about dreams seemed to follow me everywhere last week. Chasing dream cars with my camera has always been a dream of mine. With thanks to Amos Lee, Supertramp, Eurythmics, Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, Gary Wright, the dream team of the Speedbourne Racing / Ferrari of Atlanta race team, and moments of solitude trackside in Austin, this morning’s M5T shares contemplations on dreams.

Dr. Carl Pearl Breast Augmentation / Facial Plastic Surgery

Patients come to see a plastic surgeon because they want to look and feel better. Patients do not have to have surgery, they are choosing to have it. This trust between patient and plastic surgeon is so special and drives me to be my best every day.

“Monday 5 Things”™….. Power of Living Passionately …..

..... All that deliberation brought to mind the people and things that I’m passionate about; how thankful I am for the many blessings you are in my life.

“Monday 5 Things”™….. Of Number One…..

Today is Presidents Day here in these United States of America. A day that was started to celebrate the birthday of this nation's first president. I thought it fitting for this morning’s M5T to reflect on the wisdom, and positive nature of the words of George Washington, a great leader who shaped this great country.
