Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children.After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. The first thing he said was, "Don't.""Don't what?" Adam replied."Don't eat the forbidden fruit," God said."Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey, Eve...we have forbidden fruit!""No way!""Yes, way!""Do NOT eat the fruit!" said God."Why?""Because I am your Father and I said so!" God replied, wondering why he stopped creation after making the elephants.A few minutes later, God saw his children having an apple break and he was ticked! "Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God, as our first parent, asked."Uh huh," Adam replied."Then why did you?" said the Father."I don't know," sa...

Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the nameof St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday?The history of Valentine's Day and its patron saint  is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christianand ancient Roman tradition.So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single me...

Long day at work today and I just had to tell you all. Has anyone ever heard the words your children say to you.  Do you really listen?  Do you realize how important it is to listen to your children. I know you all do,  Well I did and I heard my 5 year old tell me Mom, I just cant stop loving you and he gave me a folded airplane with a heart in it.  Then another and another.  I thought that was so beautiful that I went on line to look up those words he said. I wanted to make a song out of those words he said,  Well I knew I heard those words before.  These words where sung by micheal jackson. Great song.  My son is the love of my life, he gives me huggs and kisses all the time and I cant get enough.  Enjoy the song.http://youtube.com/watch?v=u4UzQHYQUJs MICHAEL JACKSON LYRICS"I Just Can...

       Joe Kendall Realtor with Sandals Realty 239-560-0726 http://joek4realestate@aol.com  writes, I have been doing some reading and studying the impact of Bank of America's buy out of one of the largest Residential mortgage lenders in the country Countrywide Home loans. Based on everything I am reading it looks very favorable that Bank of America will be very motivated to get the foreclosures & Pre-foreclosures off their books  and moving on, This is truly is my thoughts on this subject.  The foreclosure percentage of loans that they are buying looks to be less then 20% of their current inventory of current home loans and with the recent activity of acceptance of Short Sales in lee County with Countrywide ( I know as I have closed a short sale recently with them and have had detailed...

Bank Foreclosures - Increase Your Chances of Buying that BargainMost of what you read today about bank foreclosures claims that the abundance of inventory is so over loaded that the buyer is destined to get a bargain. A seasoned investor makes his fortune on the buy, then renovating, holding and selling at market price. Seeking a good deal on a basic family home is another story. You need to be educated about area values and renovation costs. The banks do their homework and you have to do yours.Hire a Realtor that knows the foreclosure market and make an intelligent bid. Most opportunities are missed because the potential buyer either underbids or waits too long to submit an offer and another buyer comes along makes a better offer. Although the regular real estate may be slow, the forec...

Every night before you fall asleep, give hearfelt thanks for the wonderful day you just had (no matter what kind of day you had.)  Think about the next day, and intend that it is going to be wonderful. Intend that it is going to be the best day of your life.  Intend that it is going to be filled with love and joy.  Intend that all good is coming to you and everything is going to flow perfectly, etc.  Then when you wake in the morning, BEFORE you get out of bed, again declare your intentions for the day and give deep thanks as though you have received them all.  As you do this, you will begin to create your life deliberately, and you will experience first hand the power that is within you to create the life you want.                                                                        ...

Stacie Lee, owner of Stacie Lee Nicole Salon & Spa, wasn't upset when she saw graffiti with 6-foot-tall lettering splashed across the entire length of the east side of the building housing her business.She was happy that her request for the graffiti turned out so well.The letters spell "Jesus is the Reason for the Season." "I went to every store and couldn't find anything Christ-like," Lee said. "I thought I would do something of my own."After discussing the graffiti idea with friends, and getting the OK from Krystyna Zapiec, the building's owner — she was connected to Aaron DeLucca, an 18-year-old artist in North Fort Myers. "We got to talking, and I asked her what kind of writing she wanted to do for it and showed her a couple of styles, and that's one she picked," DeLucca said.Lee s...

Hey Look, we made it into the NYTimes.com :) See article here Unfortunately it wasn’t the best perception of Cape Coral, Florida. So here’s my take…. Prices are down – yes. They are down. Why? Because investors, I mean speculators tripped over each other to put money down on houses, land & new projects in 2004-2006, peaking in 2005. People who had no information about the area other than “my buddy made some money in Cape Coral real estate” started buying houses here. Many builders wanted to help these un-savvy investors & offered great deals like $1,000 down & no-interest/no-payment pre-construction loans through partner lenders. GREAT. NOT. I talk to these people on a daily basis. They can’t afford these houses. But none of them had a plan B. They all believed their friends/Real Estate...

Mon, 17 Dec 2007 9:06:34 PM Eastern Standard Time    IT  IS  STRANGE, ISN'T  IT....Isn't it strange how a 20 dollar bill seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church, but such a small amount when you go shopping?   Isn't it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you're at church, and how short they seem when you're watching a good movie? Isn't it strange that you can't find a word to say when you're praying but... you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend? Isn't it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel or ZANE GREY book? Isn't it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games but they do whatever is possible to sit at the last row in Church? Isn'...
