What an event that was.  So much fun seeing children have Lightsaber fights in the office.  The food was a hit..all with some jedi themed names.  Thought we might have made too much, but all was gone.  I actually dressed up as Hans Solo and Sarah was Rai from the new Star Wars.  Was a little weird seeing new patients dressed that way, but got the message done.

Does eating nutritous foods guarantee you to be healthy?  Does brushing your teeth guarantee you to never get cavities?  Does seeing a chiropractor guarantee you will get better or never get sick again?  Does seeing a Massage therapist guarantee you will never have a muscle ache again?  Simple answer, Heck NO.  Doing all these things can not guarantee us that nothing will ever happen to us.  All of these things can give you a better opportunity  or potential to be healthier, but no such guarantees.  

I can however guarantee that a person will ALWAYS better function, perform better in all areas of life, have a better quality and quantity of LIFE while seeing a chiropracTOR, that actually practices chiropractic vs want-to-be medical physical therapist.  Unfortunatly the a lot of the profession practices this way because of the money.  Not only bastardizing those other professions, but making chiropractic look bad too.  Chiropractic is safe, simple and sane.  Find the Subluxation, correct the subluxation restoring LIFE to flow from Above-down, Inside-out (brain to body).  When LIFE can flow with NO interference, you will ALWAYS perform in ALL areas of LIFE better.  Its not possible to restore proper Nerve function and not Perform better.  That is why Chiropractic is used in professional sports.  Not for the Pains and aches, but for better Performance.  

I love what I do, and can lose my site of this AWESOMENESS sometimes, but I Always find my way back.  

LOVE AND SERVE so YOU Can live a BEtter LIFE.

How many people can actually say that?  Take joy in what they do.  I for sure can.  I love what I do, the miracles I get to see everyday, and the company I get to do it with.  God wanted me to be a chiropractor in Harlan Iowa.  Although I do not understand why, I have to keep my Faith in that the Lord know's whats best.  

Today, Day 8 of Purpose Driven life.  What common task could I start doing as if I were doing it directly for Jesus?  Easy...Every spine I get to check is in Honor of Christ.  I am a humble servant, and often like to give credit where credit is do...the miracles I get to witness everyday, are not because I cured them, healed them.  I am only a facilitator.  I move the bones, and God does the healing.  

God Bless.

Rain Delay

Bummer.  My daughters tournament is canceled.  I love watching my kids play sports, and was looking forward to seeing it today.  Rain canceled those plans.  I still get the wonderful opportunity to help restore life and health to those in the office this morning.  

Day 5 of the Purpose driven life.  or was it 6?  I dont have the book on me at the moment, yet its about How life is short on this planet.  We only have this Earth suit for so long until we go to the otherside.  heaven.  Have you been listening to you calling, your vocation, purpose, to do what you were meant to do with your time here?  I can honestly say its not about how much stuff you can accumulate here on earth.  My calling is Chiropractic and restoring health in others.  I have a callling to also help those in need of health by setting up oppotunities in shelters and such to help them be their best.

Wow...busy day.  Didn't make the time to Blog last night as I had to rush to the ball diamonds to watch my son's team (Harlan) play their first game vs Avoca.  About the office, the layout, the old layout with a resting area, fantastic energy.  I love being able to see people come in while I work and greet them.  I like to say while in the office, that if you are not having fun you are in the wrong place.  I love what I do.  I look forward to mondays to do what we do.  I just love being a Chiropractor.  

Purpose driven life Day 4

What is the one thing I should stop doing and the one thing I should start doing today?  Last night I asked God my purpose before I went to bed and what I need to be doing.  I always knew my vocation was Chiropratic, as I feel it was chosen for me.  Through the years I have constantly challenged myself to learn new things, or was I really questioning what and how I was doing things?  I knew the Lord wanted me to be a chiropractor and where was here in Harlan Iowa.  But Why?  Just like anyone else I asked this question too.  When i was in high school here in Harlan, I told myself I would never live here for the rest of my life.  yet here I am.  Why?  

So what is wrong with Harlan?  What is wrong with living in a small community with some of the best schools in the U.S?  Nothing.  Today i will start loving my hometown more than ever.  I am here to Love and Serve and help share my Chiropractic Mission with this community and surrounding areas.  I will stop questioning my talent as a chiropractor and accept who I am.  My purpose is to serve the Lord by helping others live better qualities of life because fo the Chiropractic Lifestyle.  

Oh and late last night the Lord spoke to me..."read the bible".  So I woke up and began to read Mark.  Wow. and there I read about God's purpose in John's life and how he knew his purpose and mission and was on fire.  Did he question God's plan for him?  NOPE.  Once again, you need to open your mind and heart and listen to the Lord when spoken to

Well I have tried to do things a bit differently for the past 3 months...too much change too soon.  I need to be up front seeing people come in and feel the love.  My good friend Mark McCutchen, made that room just for me to work in.  In honor and memory of my dear friend Mark, I am back where I belong.  Up front and not tucked away in the back.  Unfortunately my wife has to hear me sing once again..LOL.  I just spent that last 2 hours moving the office around AGAIN.  I can't wait for people to come in tomorrow and see the look on there faces.  Love and Serve.  Love and Serve.

New to Blogging

I am new to blogging, and used to writing stuff down in a journal.  Yet here i am trying to get with the times...so here we go.  This morning I woke the usual way..my dog, Turk, wanting to be petted.  After that is over, I turn over to grab the book  I am currently reading to get my day started with some motivation.  The book I am currently starting the day with is, "Purpose Driven Life."  This day I am on Day 3 of the ritual and so far enjoying the book, what little I have read.  Then I will spend some time meditating on what I need to do today and how I can make this a great day.  So far so good.  Then after I get all cleaned up, I am ready to get the kids to school on time, and then home to type this blog, while I wait for my wife.  Anxiously waiting to get to the office to see what Miracle will happen today.  What will I learn today?  How many lives can I help today?  Who can I expose to the Chiropractic Lifestyle?  

Well, now I am just yammering on...how does your day begin?
