    Expanding the Mind

    “Where there is no vision, the people perish” –Proverbs 29:18a

    It is no secret that I love games. I especially love games that challenge my eyes, dexterity and my mind. I have been playing an online game “Wordament”.

I just want to know from couples: “Don’t you want to know?” Don’t you want to know if what you feel is real, if this is the right time? If you are really in love then you do not have anything to fear. Right?

    Team Success

    Everyone works differently; some enjoy working in a group while others like to work alone. There are times in the workplace where a team effort is required. When you work as a team it does not mean that your individuality is lost in going along to get along, rather it means taking your individual skills and talents and merging them with the other many skills and talents of your team mates.
