Good morning Col Burroughs and Posse. It's a clear cold morning here in Northern Virginia.
Fulfillment comes in many "flavors" Professional, personal, spiritual, social, etc None of them should be neglected to focus solely on another one. Together working on goals for all of them brings a balance to our lives. This looks different for each of us. We all assign different levels and values to what we have and what we seek and our differences should be respected. Where do you need to focus now to fulfill your goals?

I hope and pray that your primary fulfillment is your relationship with the LORD. I expect your chosen professions[s] brought fulfillment to you and hopefully those you served with/worked alongside. Hopefully you and I endeavor to fulfill the law of God by loving your own neighbor including those who display hatred for us. 'If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself,' you are doing well.' [James 2:8 ESV] my sister-in-Christ Lt Col Charlie Brown.

Lord I lift spouses, parents & children, grandparents and grandchildren to YOU this evening. I pray that YOU empower each to be fulfilled in relationship to YOU first and empower us to selfless fulfill love for our spouse and offspring. Open up the windows of heaven and release an outpouring of love. ‘There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.’ [1 John 4:18-21 ESV].
I thank YOU LORD that YOU are faithful and just and YOU fulfill each and every one of YOUR promises in YOUR perfect timing. I pray for an increase in endurance for each of us who trusts you.
In these dark days of winter, I pray that each adopted son and daughter of God is mature enough to selflessly pray to let the light and love of God shine through us and demonstrate the love of God to help heal divisions in the land we live in – USA, Canada, Mexico, UK, France, India, Australia, Philippines, Korea, Japan and New Zealand. Our eternal home is in the presence of the LORD. ‘So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. o whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.’ [1 Corinthians 5:6-10 ESV].
LORD I pray that YOU deliver each of us from corruption in ourselves first and outwardly from us to the neighborhood, town, and nation we live in. By YOUR grace YOU allow evil to appear to flourish for a season. YOU desire that all should come to YOU. Your mercies are new every morning. I pray that YOU save as many of the corrupted and vile as YOU are willing. ‘but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.’ [Romans 5:8-10 ESV]
I pray that you and your family members sleep well Saturday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Sunday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.

Good “Saturday” Morning “Burroughs’ PosseLEader from the beautiful and crystal clear blue skies of Greater Boston! There appears to be very little wind and a temperature of 25° and headed up to the mid-30s today... I'll take it!!! I am still prepping for my trip to FL, and still have a dozen or more things to do, including packing, which I always seem to leave to the very end... LOL!

“Fulfillment Day!” Why Not?

MY QUOTE:
"Each of us becomes fulfilled at some point, by some occurrence...perhaps more than once, but for those who want more or reach for more, the desire for fulfillment is far greater as they seek to achieve goals that most will not attempt...in order to be fulfilled." Kerry F. Harkins - January 9, 2021

1) "Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life's deepest joy: true fulfillment." - Tony Robbins

2) "Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

3) "The chief condition on which, life, health and vigor depend on, is action. It is by action that an organism develops its faculties, increases its energy, and attains the fulfillment of its destiny." - Colin Powell

4) "There are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfillment. The essence of these needs is captured in the phrase 'to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy.' The need to leave a legacy is our spiritual need to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence, and contribution." - Stephen Covey

All should know that...

“As a leader if you set conditions for growth and performance within your organization – the overall achievement will lead to a sense of personal and professional fulfillment!”— COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Sgt (Join to see) - Thank brother for the great quotes...and thank for your personal quote... Have a great evening brother...

“For many, fulfillment is giving and supporting others or just being kind to someone you don’t know. Some of our greatest happiness comes when we do something special for others. Make 2021 a year of fulfillment for you and others by finding that happiness you’ve been missing. May you be fulfilled in everything you do and the hard work you pursue; may you enjoy the journey with a positive attitude toward your fulfillment; may your mind, body, and soul be opened to grace, goodness, peace, forgiveness, and a bountiful life of purpose; and keep your family safe, secure, happy, and healthy. Service for others is true fulfillment. What can you do to help and support others this year?” — COL (Ret Mikel Burroughs

COL Mikel Burroughs good read/share: for the Colonel's Motivational Quotes of the Day. Where the mighty American Bald Eagles roam in the mighty MOUNTAINS OF CASTLE ROCK, COLORADO AMONG THEIR EAGLES-NEST. I know the view must be MAGNIFICENT on this day January 9. 2021. As you might glance upon the mighty snow capped mountains headed into the month of February. As you know I would respond a lot throughout the week, but I am full-time DOD employee doing contracts for the Defense Contracting Management Agency. It is good to have some time on the weekend before I start my running around to respond my friend.

Today's theme is "Fulfillment Day" I quote,“Life is more meaningful when our goal is fulfillment rather than gratification.” — Unknown Author

The picture depicts my inner-thought:
