God Send — A Worth-While Read!!

Good morning said a woman as she walked up to the man sitting on the ground.

Man.BenchThe man slowly looked up.

This was a woman clearly accustomed to the finer things of life. Her coat was new.. She looked like she had never missed a meal in her life.

His first thought was that she wanted to make fun of him, like so many others had done before.. “Leave me alone,” he growled….

To his amazement, the woman continued standing.

She was smiling — her even white teeth displayed in dazzling rows. “Are you hungry?” she asked.

“No,” he answered sarcastically. “I’ve just come from dining with the president. Now go away.”

The woman’s smile became even broader. Suddenly the man felt a gentle hand under his arm.

“What are you doing, lady?” the man asked angrily. “I said to leave me alone.

Just then a policeman came up. “Is there any problem, ma’am?” he asked..

“No problem here, officer,” the woman answered. “I’m just trying to get this man to his feet. Will you help me?”

The officer scratched his head. “That’s old Jack. He’s been a fixture around here for a couple of years. What do you want with him?”

“See that cafeteria over there?” she asked. “I’m going to get him something to eat and get him out of the cold for a while.”

“Are you crazy, lady?” the homeless man resisted. “I don’t want to go in there!” Then he felt strong hands grab his other arm and lift him up. “Let me go, officer. I didn’t do anything.”

“This is a good deal for you, Jack” the officer answered. “Don’t blow it..”

Finally, and with some difficulty, the woman and the police officer got Jack into the cafeteria and sat him at a table in a remote corner. It was the middle of the morning, so most of the breakfast crowd had already left and the lunch bunch had not yet arrived…

The manager strode across the cafeteria and stood by his table. “What’s going on here, officer?” he asked. “What is all this, is this man in trouble?”

“This lady brought this man in here to be fed,” the policeman answered.

“Not in here!” the manager replied angrily. “Having a person like that here is bad for business..”

Old Jack smiled a toothless grin. “See, lady. I told you so. Now if you’ll let me go. I didn’t want to come here in the first place.”

The woman turned to the cafeteria manager and smiled……. “Sir, are you familiar with Eddy and Associates, the banking firm down the street?”

“Of course I am,” the manager answered impatiently. “They hold their weekly meetings in one of my banquet rooms.”

“And do you make a godly amount of money providing food at these weekly meetings?”

“What business is that of yours?”

I, sir, am Penelope Eddy, president and CEO of the company.”

“Oh.”

The woman smiled again. “I thought that might make a difference.” She glanced at the cop who was busy stifling a giggle. “Would you like to join us in a cup of coffee and a meal, officer?”

“No thanks, ma’am,” the officer replied. “I’m on duty.”

“Then, perhaps, a cup of coffee to go?”

“Yes, ma’am. That would be very nice.”

The cafeteria manager turned on his heel, “I’ll get your coffee for you right away, officer.”

The officer watched him walk away. “You certainly put him in his place,” he said.

“That was not my intent. Believe it or not, I have a reason for all this.”

She sat down at the table across from her amazed dinner guest. She stared at him intently.. “Jack, do you remember me?”

Old Jack searched her face with his old, rheumy eyes. “I think so — I mean you do look familiar.”

“I’m a little older perhaps,” she said. “Maybe I’ve even filled out more than in my younger days when you worked here, and I came through that very door, cold and hungry.”

“Ma’am?” the officer said questioningly. He couldn’t believe that such a magnificently turned out woman could ever have been hungry.

“I was just out of college,” the woman began. “I had come to the city looking for a job, but I couldn’t find anything. Finally I was down to my last few cents and had been kicked out of my apartment. I walked the streets for days. It was February and I was cold and nearly starving. I saw this place and walked in on the off-chance that I could get something to eat.”

Jack lit up with a smile. “Now I remember,” he said.. “I was behind the serving counter. You came up and asked me if you could work for something to eat. I said that it was against company policy.”

“I know,” the woman continued. “Then you made me the biggest roast beef sandwich that I had ever seen, gave me a cup of coffee, and told me to go over to a corner table and enjoy it. I was afraid that you would get into trouble… Then, when I looked over and saw you put the price of my food in the cash register, I knew then that everything would be all right.”

“So you started your own business?” Old Jack said.

“I got a job that very afternoon. I worked my way up. Eventually I started my own business that, with the help of God, prospered.” She opened her purse and pulled out a business card.. “When you are finished here, I want you to pay a visit to a Mr. Lyons…He’s the personnel director of my company. I’ll go talk to him now and I’m certain he’ll find something for you to do around the office.” She smiled. “I think he might even find the funds to give you a little advance so that you can buy some clothes and get a place to live until you get on your feet… If you ever need anything, my door is always opened to you.”

There were tears in the old man’s eyes. “How can I ever thank you?” he said.

“Don’t thank me,” the woman answered. “To God goes the glory. Thank Jesus…… He led me to you.”

Outside the cafeteria, the officer and the woman paused at the entrance before going their separate ways….

“Thank you for all your help, officer,” she said.

“On the contrary, Ms. Eddy,” he answered. “Thank you. I saw a miracle today, something that I will never forget. And.. And thank you for the coffee.”

God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor.

If you believe, send it.

If you don’t believe, delete it.

God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close..

If you need God to open some doors for you…send this on.  SHARE!!

“Traverse City 2014″ Magazine Hits the Stands!

Traverse City Tourism Corporation has just released the 2014 edition of its popular magazine and visitor’s guide, titled — unsurprisingly — “Traverse City.”

The free publication features 107 pages of articles, colorful photos and useful information designed to bring this picturesque Lake Michigan vacation region to the attention of a wider national audience.

Traverse City has long been treasured by Michigan residents for its matchless scenery, colorful history, imaginative cuisine and laid-back friendliness, as well as the low humidity, warm sunshine and cool coastal breezes that make its summers so comfortable. Still, until recently, it has remained relatively unknown outside the state.

“Traverse City is a wonderful destination, but historically we haven’t done a really good job of sharing it with the rest of the world,” says Traverse City Tourism president Brad Van Dommelen. “The most common thing we hear from first-time visitors is, ‘I had no idea there was anything like this in this part of the country!’ Now, at last, we’re doing what we can to spread the word.”

The word is certainly getting out. This past year, Travel + Leisure Magazine named it one of America’s Favorite Towns, while Fodor’s called it one of America’s 10 Best Small Towns, and Family Fun magazine listed it as one of America’s Top 10 Tourist Towns.

“More of a coffee-table magazine than a tourist guide, “Traverse City” avoids promotional clutter in favor of clean layouts, large color photos and informative articles. The 2014 edition, for example, features a guide to the region’s award-winning wine varieties, some pointers on finding the most secluded spots at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and a primer on the “idiot-proof” winter sport of snow-tubing.

Naturally, the magazine also contains a great deal of practical information to help visitors plan their vacations, including detailed schedules of activities and events, a helpful lodging section describing the area’s best hotels and resorts, a guide to some of the region’s best restaurants and a section called “Traverse City Regions” that describes the area’s diverse neighborhoods, enclaves and communities.

The entire magazine can be viewed online by visiting the TCT website at http://www.TraverseCity.com. (The site also has a handy on-line order form that viewers can use to order a free copy of the real thing.)

Organized in 1981 as the Traverse City Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Traverse City Tourism is a nonprofit corporation that serves as the area’s official destination marketing organization. Its focused mission is to stimulate economic growth by attracting convention business and developing leisure tourism.

Save on Taxes with Your Coastal Travel Vacations Business!

With your Coastal Travel Vacations home-based business, your home is your office building. The tax deductions you get are no different from the business owner who owns a business that is ran out of a huge office building. When you maintain your Coastal home-based business, a portion of your home’s operating expenses become tax-deductible.

TaxesThere are many tax breaks for which your Coastal home base business qualifies for. Those individuals who do not own a home based business cannot convert these normally non-deductible expenses into tax-deductible business expenses. Coastal Travel home based business owners have the advantage of converting these expenses.

What are the Coastal Travel Vacations home-based business deductible expenses?

Below you will find a partial list of tax-deductible expenses that Coastal Vacations home-based business owners can legally and routinely write off.

  • Mortgage Interest or Rent

  • Gas, Electric, Trash, Water and Sewer

  • Cleaning Services

  • Computers, Copiers, Fax Machines and Telephones

  • Paper, Pens, Ink Cartridges and Postage

  • Desks, Sofas, Coffee Tables and other Furniture

  • Painting, Wallpaper, and other repairs and remodeling

  • Phone Bills, Cell Phones

  • Newspapers, Magazines, Books and Online Media

  • Travel, Hotels, Meals, Rental Cars while Traveling

  • Coastal Travel Vacations Business

  • Health, Dental, Disability and other Insurance

  • Pest Control and General Maintenance

Now I want you to stop and think about this list for a moment. Most people realize that homeowners can write off mortgage interest but now renters too can write off a portion of their rent based on your square footage of your home-based office space.

Not only that, you get an opportunity to write off utility expenses.

Do you want to give your spouse a break and have a maid clean the home? A portion of that bill can become a tax-deductible write off too. Hopefully by now, you can see that by owning a Coastal home-based business, you qualify for write-offs that you normally would not have.

When you purchase your package from your Coastal Travel Vacations director, it becomes a product that you not only make money off of, but also get some great tax savings for having and using.

Should I Work From Home?

Sooner or later, you may find yourself asking the question, “Should I work from home?” Starting a full or part-time home business is obviously a major and very personal decision, so it is important to consider every angle. However, I am here to convince you that working from home has many excellent advantages. Consider these 10 reasons you should work from home:

Beach.Mom.Daughter

  1. Control Over Your Schedule: This is definitely one of the biggest pros of working from home. You are now able to set and customize your own work hours to meet the needs of your personal and family life. But, with this new-found freedom, come distracting temptations and the ability to procrastinate work-related tasks. You’ll want to make sure you have the right entrepreneurial character traits to handle this new responsibility.
  2. More Accessible For Your Kids: Working from home can be the solution that allows you to be home more withMom.Kids.Laptop your kids. You’ll have greater flexibility in your schedule, allowing you to place your family’s needs above those of your employer. However, despite your determination to balance work and family, it may not work out as perfect as you thought. In some instances, it may be prudent to arrange for childcare in order to properly meet the needs of your children and home business.
  3. Make Money Doing Something You Love: Many home businesses are born from a hobby or a passion. What a breath of fresh air to ditch the mind-numbing work you once did in a cubicle, in favor of something you actually enjoy. You may almost forget you are even working!
  4. No More Commuting or High Gas Bills: Americans spend an average of $386 per month on gas. Cutting down on a daily commute would put some of that $1500 a month back in your pocket. Not to mention the amount of wasted time driving to and from work every day. Working from home saves you the commute hassle and costs, and gives you the ability to actually enjoy your breakfast from your kitchen table, not your lap.
  5. Control Over Income: The Law of Cause and Effect states that the amount of time and energy put into something will directly impact its output. This also applies to your home business. The more time and energy you devote to drumming up new customers and marketing your business will directly result your profit levels. You have the ultimate control of your outcome (and your income).
  6. Tax Benefits: Now that you are working from home, you have incredible tax benefits. You can write off equipment, supplies and even a portion of your home or car if it is appropriate. The key to understanding all these home business deductions is to ask questions and do your research, get some advice from a tax expert in order to make sure you are following proper tax laws. The goal of any business should ultimately be to make profits, but the write-offs will definitely help offset owed taxes.
  7. Control Over Your Work Attire: No more blazers and dress pants. You can wear whatever the heck you want at your new home business place of employment. If you get your best entrepreneurial inspiration in your fluffy bathrobe, you can wear it everyday if you want. One note of caution though, work attire has been shown to correlate with productivity levels. So, just because you can wear your jammies, doesn’t always mean you should. You may find a business casual environment in your home office helps you get more done during the day.Coastal Vacations Travel Christian Team
  8. No Boss: Need I say more? No more guilt when you walk-in 10 minutes late because of a legitimate morning hiccup. No more pointless meetings, or personal coaching sessions. No more corporate bureaucracy.
  9. Greater Levels of Satisfaction: There is a direct link between personal satisfaction and happiness. When you are doing what you love and/or receiving results in direct correlation with your efforts, you are destined to be happier. This happiness and satisfaction will permeate all areas of your life. You will be more pleasant to be around, you will exhibit greater patience, and those who are happier, live longer.
  10. Learning new skills and growing professionally: Most traditional employer-based work is the role of a “doer”, not manager or executive. The “doer” is typically a piece of the assembly line of a given business (often referred to as a worker bee). More often than not, a doer becomes pigeonholed into tasks that aren’t particularly difficult or fulfilling. However, in a home business, an individual manages the whole picture — from business set-up to customer acquisition to marketing. This new-found responsibility requires new skills and involves incredible amounts of learning and growth.

The Most Unique Cruise Ship Features!

Cruise.9Back in the golden day of cruising, travelers could barely believe their eyes when they stepped aboard a luxury cruise liner and found fully equipped gymnasiums, relaxing Turkish baths, and even well stocked libraries and outdoor, European-style cafes. Of course, all of these features, and indeed much, much more, are pretty standard across the board now, with most of us expecting high-end restaurants, shopping malls and casinos at the very least when taking a cruise. With the bar being well and truly raised, cruise companies around the world are seeking out new features that will make their ships stand out over all others and what the industry is starting to see on the newer ships, and on those that have been recently renovated, is a level of excitement and a level of utter luxury that has simply never before been seen at sea.

North Star, Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean

The North Star, which features aboard Royal Caribbean’s newest vessel scheduled to set sail in 2014, is the first of its kind in the North Star, Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbeanworld. Suspended by a rotating arm-style mechanism attached to the ship’s uppermost deck, the glass-encased gondola can only be described as a blend of the capsules of the London Eye and the glass elevator in the Roald Dahl classic. Holding up to 13 passengers at any one time, the North Star gives unrivaled 360-degree views over the vast ocean, from a 300 meter high vantage point. Royal Caribbean wanted to create a new feature that would simply be irresistible to travelers, and based on the 6.8 million annual visitors to the Eiffel Tower, and the 3.65 million people who ride to the top of the Empire State building each year, it seems that high viewpoints are right on trend. There’s just something about the perceived breathtaking sights that travelers cannot say ‘no’ to. It’s anticipated that the newer ships of the Quantum class will also feature a similar attraction.

Movies Under the Stars, Grand Princess, Princess Cruises

Movies Under the Stars, Grand PrincessOutdoor movie screens are becoming quite common on newer cruise ships as more and more cruise companies aim to make use of the great weather, particularly throughout the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and around the Australian coast. However, none are quite as spectacular as the ‘Movies Under the Stars’ screens on many of the Princess Cruises vessels. ‘MUTS’, as it has become known, debuted on the Grand Princess and, with a screen measuring 300 square feet, it is now one of the largest outdoor movie screens in the world. Located poolside for the ultimate in atmospheric impression, the screen shows up to 7 recent Hollywood blockbusters each day, along with sporting events, concerts, and kid’s films. Utilising state-of-the-art technology, the screen can be seen and heard even in brilliant sunlight and against the sounds of the ship’s engines, so you get excellent quality all of the time. The latest edition to the fleet, Royal Princess, unveiled an even larger screen towering over the open deck space.

Virtual Balconies, Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean

Balcony cabins are a great choice of accommodation that give you the chance to gaze out over the ocean from your own private space. Virtual Balconies, Quantum of the SeasIt’s an especially good option for those taking a romantic cruise, to enjoy the intimacy of watching the ship sail along the water’s surface together. Sadly, balcony cabins don’t always fall within the holiday budget, but all that is about to change. Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Quantum of the Seas, features 373 ‘virtual balcony’ cabins, which include 80 inch LED screens stretching from floor to ceiling of an indoor cabin. What’s even more impressive is that these virtual balconies display real-time images of the outside, both at sea and in port. You can even turn the screen on and off as you please, so if you’re trying to have a little nap in the day, just switch the screen off for instant sleep-inducing conditions. Virtual balconies are expected to be rolled out on other Quantum class ships, as well as Navigator, Voyager, Adventure, and Explorer of the Seas, and it’s estimated that they will revolutionise cruise accommodations to a point where indoor cabins become the most popular rooms on the ship!

Marco Pierre White Room Restaurant, Ventura, P&O

Marco Pierre White Room Restaurant, Ventura

Love him or loathe him, Marco Pierre White has become a household name in the UK, and his culinary skills cannot be questioned. Marco lends his name to not one but four different restaurants across a number of P&O vessels with The White Room aboard Ventura considered by many to be one of the finest speciality dining venues at sea. The menu is varied but has a definitive European theme, with French-inspired chicken coq au vin, Italian risotto, and, of course, the obligatory snail side dish. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the man himself, who frequently steps aboard to whip up some mouth-watering cuisine and ensure that standards are being maintained. He’s even been known to offer on-board cookery lessons for children, helping to teach them about good health, good nutrition, and the finest of foods. If you’re keen to dine at a celebrity chef restaurant on board, try to reserve a table when you embark, as these restaurants do book up quickly. If you’re traveling in a suite aboard Ventura then you will also have exclusive use of this superb dining venue for breakfast each morning, should you wish.

Cruising is evolving to a point where it is almost unrecognisable from the days of the 1920s and 30s when simply a good meal at sea was considered to be an amazing feat. As more and more ships are being designed and constructed, we’re starting to see features, activities, and attractions that were once never mere pipe dreams now becoming spectacular realities. Bumper cars, skydiving simulators and the worlds most talented performance artists are just some of the additional features we can expect to see on ships in the near future.
