One Solitary Life

A Reading Version of One Solitary Life
(the original version by Dr. James Allan Francis)

Let us turn now to the story.
A child is born in an obscure village. He grew up in still another village where he worked in a carpenters shop until he was thirty. For three years he was an itinerant preacher;
He never wrote a book
He never held an office
He never raises an army
He never has a family of his own
He never owns a home
He never goes to college
He never travels two hundred miles from the place where he was born

While still a young man, the tide of public opinion turned against him
He was turned over to his enemies
He goes through the mockery of a trial
He is nailed to a cross between two thieves
His executioners gambled for his clothing, the only property he owned
When he was dead, he was laid in a borrowed grave

Those are the facts of this human life. He rises from the dead and today we look back across nineteen hundred years and ask what was his influence across the centuries?
When we try to sum it up;
All the armies that ever marched
All the parliaments that ever sat
All the kings that ever reigned

Can not compare in their influence on mankind as this One Solitary Life.


As the 1st quarter of the year is here, check your actuals to your budget.

For your business, ensure you are not over spending already in certain categories and under spending in others. You still have some time to keep your payables within your budget.

Personal, I’m sure by now you’ve recovered from all the Christmas debt you accumulated if any and you are now getting back on track with your spending plan/budget. Start planning now for all the celebrations of this year including December 25, 2014 by putting a little amount of money as you can afford aside.

Remember having a TFSA account can help towards this goal if you need help.
