a passion for lifeCan we live without passion?

  • To live compelling and vigor we need passion
  • To make things last we need passion
  • To make life worthwhile we need passion
  • To have healthy relationships we need passion

Isaac Watts said, May I govern my passions with absolute sway, and grow wiser and better as life wears away.

Without passion most likely we will be without energy.

We need passion to keep our marriage alive, to pursue education, to pursue art, pursue relationships, to pursue and understand history, to pursue spiritual matters.

 “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”


For me I look to God my creator for inspiration. There lies my treasure.

In a day where I/me/my/self-interest is the order of the day faith can somehow be dwindling away or in times of distress be swept away.

A.W. Tozer said it like this … “We may WANT God, but we want something else more. And we get what we want most.”

I want a passion for the creator God, for life, for family, for every moment of every day.

Life will rob spiritual passion. Circumstances of life will destroy passion. When those times come, nothing less than restoration will do. An Extreme Makeover of our personal spiritual pursuits.  Enthusiasm reclaimed.  Have a vigor to be more helpful for hurting mankind.

The Passion I’m talking about and desire is touched by Webster’s definition: A STRONG, EXTRAVAGANT FONDNESS, ENTHUSIASM, OR DESIRE FOR SOMETHING.

I wonder do purpose give us a reason to wake up and start the day but is it passion that keeps us going kinda propel us forward.

It is the passion that draws us out of depression, elevate the soul.

 A passion to pursue should always make ourselves and our world a better place to live.


I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be. – Roald Dahl; British Novelist

Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours. – Audrey Hepburn;
Actress, Humanitarian

 Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot she would be lost. – Proverb

A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.”
– John Maxwell,

Never underestimate what passion can do in your life.

  • Passion; without it you give up.
  • Passion; without it time becomes hard.
  • Passion without it endurance runs thin.

E is for Eggs and Enthusiasm!

Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline and 14 essential nutrients. But like all good things don’t eat too much.

One of my favorite sandwich is an Egg Salad Sandwich instead of using mayonnaise I use Vegenaise a vegan replacement of mayonnaise/miracle whip. An Egg Salad Sandwich made right makes for a very nutritious lunch. Now you don’t have to eat eggs that’s your choice.


I approach an Egg Salad Sandwich with ‘enthusiasm’.

WOW Enthusiasm!


Enthusiasm means passionate and lively interest or eagerness;  an object of keen interest; passion.

Enthusiasm is a quality necessary for delightful human interaction but also to be successful.

Enthusiasm is the energy, the fuel, the blazing fire that brings about a victorious result. I don’t think a whole lot can ever happen without enthusiasm. If you want to accomplish great things; if you want to realize great goals; if you want to live a great life, you absolutely must possess enthusiasm for everything you do. Enthusiasm is like a magnetic pull towards the things you want to achieve. It’s that something extra that drives you to learn until you are knowledgeable with a belief in your project or even life that transcends to passion and action.

Enthusiastically living and loving is a tremendous experience.  It’s like a new day. You get it?

When things go wrong enthusiasm the fuel helps us along. It gives us clarity to know what is important each day.

So what does enthusiasm look like?  It’s shown in the remnants of pride, passion, proactive, grateful, willing to change.

many a day

you drag your feet

wait for the wind-fall

all blues and gray,

but the fragrance

of enthusiasm

poetry in motion

take charge


fire’s spark

dancin’ steps


a new day

of inspiration

has sprung

Quotes I Am Pondering Today!

It’s faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes a life worth living.

 -Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment. . . It gives warmth and good feeling to all your personal relationships. – Norman Vincent Peale

One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful, we let what was once a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to God’s goodness it becomes a routine.  – Joel Osteen
