Q-STORIES 

(R/Read), (W/Wrote), (H/Heard), M-Modified) 

Following are some stories, (Q-Stories as I call them), that I read, heard, or wrote over the years. I have always loved stories. I always seem to learn things must faster when told to me in the form of a story. I adopted this style of communicating very early in life.  The six most important people in my life, (My-Six-Pac) were all story tellers. What choice did I have!  I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed reading, writing and hearing them!  I hope they bless your life as they have mind!  

Read them in any order you like … but be sure not to miss even one … as it may be the very one that become dearest to you … now get to it!

Note:  After more than 50 years after the start of the Korean war, I was the guy who was finally able to get a written and signed agreement between the U.S Army and The Republic of Korea Army which was finally signed by The US and Korean Governments.  

The Female LTC name in the write-up was the Chief, of WHNS after I left BUT the Agreement had already been sent to The Department of the US Army for approval … I have documented proof of this.  This was one of my most prideful accomplishment of my career!

"All that I am and all that I ever hope to be I owe 

to my mother." - Abraham Lincoln 

… and the remaining members of 

“My Six-Pac” - CLD

 

“I never teach my pupils, I only provide the condition 

in which to learn.” -  Albert Einstein 

 

Common Sense - "A collection of prejudices collected 

by age eighteen - Albert Einstein  

 

“Ignorance and failure is also a collection 

of prejudices acquired by age eighteen… thank “God for My Six-Pac.” 

 

If you get only one thing from these writings I hope it’s this:  Whatever you want from life you can have it.  All you need to do is decide clearly on what you want and commit to obtaining it … and began working on accomplishing it!  All the tools you will need have already been provided to you” - Yours Truly

 

So, please don’t say to me, “God Will Provide”, as I have often heard.  God has already provided … He is waiting on YOU to get your A… in Gear!

 

Being the third from the youngest of nine kids my only memories are that I was very happy.  Sometimes now when I think back on those days I am reminded of how much I love my Mom and Dad, my Grandma, my Uncles and my siblings and the Taylor, Hurt, Cousin and Jackson families.  Man … I think God may have long since stopped making people like them …. Maybe!

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.” - Washington Irvine

When I came across this quote I felt better about the many, many tears I have shaded back home in  Springfield Baptist Church.  I often wandered what some though of my tears …. but when I saw this quote … I was put at ease … in my heart I knew that my tears were only a forced expression on the love I had for our church family and our community.
