Good morning Col Burroughs and Posse on this Hump Day. It's 58 degrees and overcast this morning; hard to tell what the weather will do.
Fulfillment is what we feel when we meet our goals, sometimes goals we didn't even consciously acknowledge. We have a lot of people struggling right now during the pandemic and I am still getting calls to speak to people about what they can do to build resiliency and mental health. Too many of us are dependent on our work to "fulfill" us; it really doesn't but it uses up so much time that normally there is no space to think about what it is that we want and is meaningful in our lives.
I did over 250 funeral details when I was on Active Duty. Most of them were for veterans. They came in two types: one group seemed to die within five years and the priest/pastor/family spoke about his or her dedication to their military job; the other group lived 20 or more years and there was discussion about their volunteer work, spiritual life, connection and helping others. That is what keeps us grounded and provides meaning. Without that, something inside isn't complete, imo.

Lt Col Charlie Brown - Doing the funerals is very tough duty, no matter how many you do Charlie. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on fulfillment today and thanks for the additional quotes. Have wonderful day and I hope that weather turns out better as the day goes on...

“Fulfillment can be met by many different things in everyone’s life. What is fulfillment for you? Is it helping others or just showing kindness? Here is a quote that makes sense to me…

‘Life is more meaningful when our goal is fulfillment rather than gratification.’ — Unknown Author

May your life be fulfilled with happiness, values, inspiration, and real sense of purpose; may your mind, body, and soul be opened to grace, goodness, peace, forgiveness, and a continued bountiful life of purpose; and keep your family safe, secure, happy, and healthy. Fulfillment for me is placing a rose on every grave each Memorial Day and providing online peer support to veterans, first responders, service members, and caretakers.” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

I hope you are fulfilled in your personal relationships. I expect you have a great deal of fulfillment in your years of service as a service member, service as a worker, serving your family and friends, and perhaps serving strangers. I pray that you and I are spiritually mature enough to demonstrate love to those who hate us – especially in these challenging days. ‘If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? … But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.’ [Luke 6:32-36 ESV] my sister-in-Christ Lt Col Charlie Brown.

I pray that each and every of YOUR adopted sons and daughters are demonstrating respect to each person we interact with. LORD I am grateful for sanctification which includes transforming us from childishly selfish people to selfless people who help others in need. YOU enable us to feel fulfilled by helping strangers as well as helping friends and family. ‘You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.’ [Matthew 5:43-45 ESV]
LORD I pray that spouses, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other family members are doing are best to fulfill promises we have made and intend to make. Enable us to think before we speak and to never utter deceptive promises we will not fulfill. YOU always fulfil YOUR promises as YOU fulfil YOUR Word to each and every generation of humanity. 'Uphold me according to your promise, that I may live, and let me not be put to shame in my hope! Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for your statutes continually! [Psalm 119:116-117 ESV}
I lift trustworthy, honest, and forthright government, military, business, & industry leaders, administrators and managers to YOU LORD. I pray that YOU motivate each to fulfill promises they make to those they lead. Empower them to demonstrate love to those they lead as well as respect for all people. I pray that YOU fulfill the hopes and dreams of each of those leaders, administrators and managers in YOUR perfect timing. ‘Uphold me according to your promise, that I may live, and let me not be put to shame in my hope! Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for your statutes continually! [Psalm 119:116-117 ESV]
As far as dishonest, deceptive government, military, business, & industry leaders, administrators and managers whose focus is evil and selfish, I pray that YOU fulfill YOUR word in YOUR perfect timing. ‘You spurn all who go astray from your statutes, for their cunning is in vain. All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross,’ [Psalm 119:118-119a ESV]
I pray that you and your family members sleep well Wednesday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Thursday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.
