What are the meaningful things in your life?

How many meaningful things do you do in a day?

In a week?

In a month?

Our joy of life varies in direct proportion
to the amount of meaning in our life.
No meaning, no joy.

You could look it up.

Or, you could experiment with your own life.
Watching how joy increases as meaning increases.

Doing things that are meaningful to us
is strictly up to us.
We are in charge of the meaning quotient in our life.
We cut back on the things that are not meaningful
and double up on the things that are.

What's the problem?

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
