Do the Right Thing
Common sense is defined as good sense and sound judgement in practical matters. It relates to gaining wisdom and understanding in a situation and being sensible when making decisions.
Making the right decisions in life is of paramount importance, especially for someone who follows God. It may mean ending a friendship or separating yourself from someone that is impacting your relationship and walk with God. It could mean making a sacrifice for your family that will impact generations.
My mother would always say, "If you don't listen now you will feel later." None of us want to feel the consequences of poor decisions later on. That's why you have got to do the right thing! We often ask the question, "What would Jesus do?" Jesus always answers us but sometimes we just don't like what we hear. The fact remains we are accountable for our lives and the lives of others connected to us. Sound judgement is needed in every decision you make, and this comes from the Word of God.
God shows us how to live and encourages us to chose LIFE.
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live
The right thing is not always an easy choice, but in the long run the fruit will manifest in generations to come.
Watched this one with the kids tonight... We had a family pile and snuggle on the futon tonight!
Iola loved seeing the whole island of Amazon warriors (a little different than her Disney princesses 😉).
Kane favourite parts were 'it's difficult to know what to do when one is faced with the truth'. This is something his mama knows a thing or two about...as both kids are very aware when their mother is processing something big. He also loved Steve's resolve to always do the right thing. Kiddo was able to identify that we may not always make the best decision but that doesn't mean we can't correct it moving forward.
Such a smart kid! #integrity#dotherightthing#love#powerful#familytime#learning#lifemessage
While I was in aussie I had the opportunity to work on a sheep farm. I was pretty nervous to start with. As I grew up on a farm I learnt at a young age how to work hard and was never afraid to get my hands dirty. Now however Iv immersed myself in the outdoors and in the process have learnt how much damage farms can cause to our environment. The farm I worked on was extremely ethical and was a small operation compared with many farms now days. My boss really cares about his sheep and would do what ever he could to keep them happy and healthy. I loved the many conversations we had about the environment and what farmers were actually doing to try and help (obviously not all). One of my favourite lessons was about the kids apples and carrots that are are cut and stored in separate bags for kids lunches. Last year we were learning all about packaging and I know I was getting frustrated and upset about the amount used. What I didn’t know was that a group of farmers wives got together to brainstorm ways to prevent the amount of food waste at their end. What they came up with was to cut all the “ugly” stuff up and put it into bags for kids lunches. So not only are they saving a lot more food then before, but they are also helping time-poor mothers provide healthy food options for their kids. I still don’t agree with the amount of packaging but it is a big step in the right direction. ⠀⠀
It’s reminded me about ying and yang and how everything has the good an the bad. So don’t lump people into categories. Yea you may only see the bad but trust that there are people out there fighting for the good things even if it’s not in your face. If anyone knows of any other awesome initiatives like this one I would really love to hear about it!
Kids watch & learn everyday. Even though they can be sneaky, can tease one another & play games...they do learn right from wrong. We did some grocery shopping yesterday & upon getting to the car, Cameron noticed he had an apple pie in his lap, that had been under his iPad (don’t judge...yes, he was sitting in the cart 😜). He immediately said, “mom, we didn’t pay for this, we have to go pay.” Proud of him and yes, we went back in. The manager @publix was so proud of him and thanked him. 👏🏼 I do wonder if the game of golf has also had an influence on his honesty, too. ❤️ Thankful for my sweet boys, both of them. ❤️ #honesty#thebaezboys#familyfirst#dotherightthing#Repost @alisonbaez
No one in the world needs an elephant tusk, but an elephant 🐘 Many people who purchase ivory do not realize that it comes at the expense of an elephant’s life. Ivory belongs on an elephant and only on an elephant. Be the voice for these beautiful, wild animals. #speakup#dotherightthing#knowledgeispower#ivoryforelephants
*This is an excerpt taken from our blog* -ZEKE OWEN PROJECT- ‘So WHAT IS IMPORTANT ???
How bout recognizing and giving back to those that came before us !?!
Those that paved the way and handed the torch so that we may run with it and one day hand over to the next generation of tattooers
Well that’s exactly what our own Tony Logan has been doing the past few weeks
-A self less act in and of itself is not selfless whatsoever-
This man has respectfully put his clients on hold to dedicate all his time and efforts to bringing the Tattoo community together as a show of support for veteran Tattoo Artist and living legend Zeke Owen
Zeke has been battling Alzheimer’s in an assisted care facility in which Tony is planning on outfitting with vintage and hand painted tattoo flash by tattooers from all walks for this Thanksgiving Day !
When asked about his recent efforts with a certain look of determination ,a brief response ,
’It’s for the old man’ ...
We want to extend our sincerest appreciation to all who have reached out to Tony and helped make this project a reality.
Tony will be posting pics of the end result IG @tlotattooer which we hope you all will help repost and share...’
We have a thing we call MODness and we’re here to spread it. MODness is more than just making amazing pizza and being a great place to work. We also work closely with our local communities to do what we can to bring positivity to the neighbourhood too. This is a special one this week as it’s also our 9th birthday plus we’re launching in Borehamwood! Join us on this special week by helping us spread a little extra MODness. £1 from every MOD-size pizza purchased will go to some really fantastic local youth-focused charities.
