He said, Be totally honest with yourself. Your time on earth is limited. Isn't it time you made the most of it?"
Our guest today in the Coffee Shop: Kerry & Chris Shook
Our guest in the Coffee Shop this issue reflected on the dash seen on tombstones in a cemetary and was faced with this sobering and life-changing thought.
He said, "Are you living the dash or are you dashing to live....It is startling to realize that a person's whole life can be summed up in a little dash connecting two numbers....we don't get to decide on the two numbers, but we do get to decide on the dash."
He sat down and wrote the book, "One Month To Live - Thirty Days to a No Regrets Life" It became a thirty day challenge inspiring people all around the world to Live Passionately. Love Completely. Learn Humbly. Leave Boldly.
Those of you who are familiar with "Sugar For My Coffee" know that you can join us for this coffee break any time you like. Simply grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair and get to know our guest. Through cyberspace technology and the click of a mouse, go now and get to know

Couples Corner - The Last Act of a Desperate Artist
This is the area of our newsletter where we grow in our life and relationship enrichment.
"The last act of a desperate artist is to expose his genitals"
Although this was spoken hundreds of years ago, you can't help but see its relevance for today.
If Janet Jackson had read this quote a few years back, the Super Bowl these days may not be so tainted by association with halftime antics of disclosure. If Britney Spears had understood this, maybe she would not have exposed herself for the cameras causing more disarray in her already troubled life.
You see this same desperation every time another Hollywood star uses Playboy in an attempt to step back into the spotlight of a career whose candle is slowly going out.
The point of this quote is obvious. When an artist finds himself/herself no longer appreciated and valued for what made them memorable, they often resort to less in value in hopes of being valued more.
But stars are not the only people susceptible to this urge of desperation.
Young (and old) girls and boys resort to it because they don't want to lose their boyfriend/girlfriend who is pressuring them to have sex.
Not wanting to lose their relationship, they give in and wonder why the heat has turned on in the relationship but the heart has tuned out. Over time they can't help noticing that dating seems to be centered more on physical involvement than life involvement and their bed has become bigger while their world together has become smaller.
Young (and old) boys and girls resort to it because society has caused them to believe virginity is a stain that must be removed from their lives.
Not wanting to be scrutinized, they give in only to find that what they thought was a stain on their lives was actually one of the things that elevated their value in the eyes of the right person.
It is my belief that people today share their bodies because it is easier than sharing their lives. The requirements needed for nighttime value are easier than the requirements needed for lifetime value. What they end up with are lives full of desire and empty of design. I believe God is a God of design, and I think He has more in mind for our sexuality than how we see it being used (abused) today.
I get this feeling we've maybe gone astray
We're a long way from the manger
From the pure, simple Divine
Long way from the innocence of the Stranger
Is this what You had in mind?"
- Wayne Watson Long Way From The Manger -
It is important that you understand that the value you place on your body is determined by how you use it. Don't let your use of yours be the last act of a desperate artist.
Something to think about,
