Kris Wolfe: I Love Me, I Love Me Not

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Self love sounds weird.

At least it did to me when I was barely double digits and a woman at a church I was uncomfortably visiting with my slumber party pal suggested that I should “love myself.”

Love myself? What in carnation was this nut-job talking about?

I knew how to love pizza and chocolate. I was comfortable loving the Facts or Life and even Ricky Schroeder. But loving myself? That seemed so strange.

Love Thyself

Bells of Christmas

 

Written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

ChristmasI heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Headquarters, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionBaghdad, Iraq – Early Sunday morning at Union III, the sound of a guitar and hymns being sung could be heard among the pitter-patter of raindrops. Before the sun had even come up, a group of Soldiers endured the weather to gather for an Easter sunrise service. By the end of the service, the rain subsided, giving Soldiers the opportunity to take in their surroundings.

The Easter sunrise service was just one of five religious services held at Union III and one of many services across the Combined Joint Force Land Component Command – Operation Inherent Resolve (CJFLCC-OIR) area of operations in celebration of the holiday.

“At each location across the CJFLCC we held Christian services, which include protestant and Catholic, and Latter Day Saints,” said Lt. Col. David A. Bowlus, CJFLCC-OIR chaplain.

Kris Wolf: How to Recover from Rejection

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Self-esteem reminds me of a water balloon dipped in tanning oil. We want to have a handle on it, but our grasp is momentary at best.

And the ego. Well the ego is a savage. A hungry carnivore leaving a trail of messy carnage, if left to its own devices.

I am going to speak to the female ego and self-esteem here, but fellas, you can probably relate too. Yet there is something special about how women feed their ego, and thus experience a positive self-esteem.

I have yet to meet a man Who can change the will of GOD. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Kris Wolfe: She Was Just a Receptionist

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Recently, my husband and I attended a conference for motorcycle dealers from all over the country. It was a 2-day event, held in a hotel with meals and speaking/training carefully coordinated.

I met the lady who did all of the planning on the way into the opening dinner and then happened to be seated next to her. Everyone was introducing themselves and their lofty titles with the company, so I asked her, “What is your official title?” She said, “Oh I’m just a receptionist. I’m no one important.”

What?

Just a receptionist? But being important is not the same as looking important. And being important has a lot more to do with who we are than who we appear to be.

My Two Cents: #Gabestrong

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN “Faith and understanding rest on the hope of eternal life.  Before time began, God promised to give that life.  And he does not lie.” Titus 1.

It seemed only fitting that former Clarksville City Councilman Gabe Segovia would lose his battle to cancer on the day God chose to begin his life.  And while there are many who think that is so sad, I celebrate for Gabe.

The pain is gone.  The suffering is over.  Now, go rest my brother!

Feeling Small in the World Today?

 

Kris Wolfe“When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet:”

~Psalm 8:3-6
