Here's a Coaching Gift to Help YOU Make Successful Decisions
At times, it is not an easy load to carry being responsible for making
decisions in the workplace. However, understanding that "it comes with
the territory" empowered leaders this article was written with you in
mind, to equip YOU to make successful decisions rather than shun, delay,
ignore, delegate or toy with the plagued matters.
Get rid of all bitterness, passion, and anger. No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ. -- Ephesians 4: 31-32.
The Word of God is so powerful that once we welcome the Word, listen to the Word and act on the Word, there is no space for long sermons, shouting, philosophy or the like. I have lived long enough to come to the conclusion that the less you say, the more people listen.
The best teacher is one who can get the class' attention. With the complexity of life and all the added attractions, hardly any time is left for concentration on any one thing. The television is on, the phone is ringing, texting is going on, the kettle has been whistling for some time, there is chaos and confusion going on among the members of the household and no one is listening to anyone.
Then, there are suggestions coming from every nook and cranny as to the solution for the high crime rate and the excessively incredible number of murders so far for the year among so numerically small a nation such as ours. Let's march! Let's pray! Let's protest! Let's hang! Let's change the national security minister and the government! Let's stay up all night and see if we can catch them! And the let's go on and on.
But look today in plain and simple language what the Apostle Paul through the inspiration of Almighty Father is saying to us, thus the cure for all that is amiss in our land and indeed the world. "Get rid of all bitterness, passion, and anger. No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ."
Bitterness or resentment if not dealt with would follow your every moment as you journey through life. It should not be toyed with as it leads to rage and constant anger. It causes change in your facial expression and can turn a beauty queen into an ugly looking witch.
Shouting, screaming and insulting one another drives happiness away. Any home, job, or nation where there is shouting, screaming and insults hurled at one another lessens the potential of those who have God-given gifts for the betterment of mankind and the good of the nation.
Hate grows with each passing day. There are many persons who have been hating the same person from kindergarten days and now they are in their twilight years. What has it done for them? Turned them into old complainers, grouches, unpleasant to be around and sown seeds for generations in-so-much as it is a generational curse.
For every situation, there is another side, and thank God for all that is happening to the detriment of us all in our land, the solution is here for us in the text: "Instead of the negative let us "be kind and tenderhearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ." Jesus Himself admonishes us to love one another. We must obey God's Word. Welcome it into our lives and listen to it carefully.
This week in Madrid, Spain the Catholics are celebrating World Youth Day and it is a joy to see the thousands of young people who are welcoming, listening and acting according to the Word of the Lord. I think I wrote that I enjoy their ministry through EWTN. What a difference the teachings of a church can make in the lives of those who support the ministry. We have to forget about who is going to be the starring showman and compel sinners to become saints through the adherence of the Word of God.
You may not want to accept it, but the Word of God makes a difference in the lives of the people of any nation. Anything short of that is what Psalm 127 proclaims "If the Lord does not build the house, the work of the builders is useless. If the Lord does not protect the city, it does no good for the sentries to stand guard."

Freeport, Grand Bahama - Going back to school is an exciting
time for children. They are eager to learn, ready to play and thrilled about
showing off their new school gear. Of course, it can also be a nervous time of
year but something as simple as a new backpack goes a long way in building a
child's self-confidence on the first day of school.
Kelly's Freeport Ltd. has donated new
backpacks to all of the students at the Grand Bahama Children's Home. The
backpacks were selected specifically for each child depending on their age,
grade level and gender. The preschool students were surprised with character
backpacks which included The Princess and the Frog, Spiderman, Toy Story and
other fun designs...

High operating expenses and receivables approaching 80 percent hurt Bahamas Property Fund Limited's (BPF) profitability in the first quarter.
According to its financial statements up until March 31, the BISX-listed company saw its operating expenses spike 36.29 percent. "Other expenses" increased more than $170,000 after absorbing common area maintenance costs. The fund's flagship property, the Bahamas Financial Centre, has an estimated vacancy rate of 25 percent.
"The cost to maintain the building is shared by all of the tenants," said Jamaal Stubbs, senior analyst at CFAL. "Therefore, with fewer tenants, the cost is going up. You have to cover that cost."
The other culprit to profitability came in the form of receivables, which grew substantially in the first quarter. In fact, of all total revenues earned during this period, a concerning 77 percent represented unpaid rent.
The trend points to the tough financial times being felt around the world, as many of the tenants in the Bahamas Financial Centre are offshore banks. Meanwhile, with rent left unpaid, BPF must dip into its own reserves to meet its working capital requirements.
Stubbs noted that high receivables carry a variety of risks, including the danger that vacancy could increase as firms fail to cover liabilities.
In the first quarter BPF saw its earnings decline 36 percent, or $168,000, compared to the same period last year. Total revenues, however, did rise by $20,000 to $1.06 million through gains in the rental parking income.
In terms of the fund's other properties, Providence House remains fully leased with PricewaterhouseCoopers as its primary tenant. However, One Marina Drive on Paradise Island has a similar vacancy compared to the Bahamas Financial Centre.
BPF possesses more than $30 million in equity capital and only $16.1 million in long-term debt, placing the BISX-listed firm in a position for future acquisitions, should the right opportunity arise.
In a past interview with Guardian Business, Michael Anderson, the president of RoyalFidelity Merchant Bank & Trust, said the fund continues to target $100 million in assets "over a period of time".
"There is a glut of office space, particularly downtown," he noted. "Commercial real estate is not just about offices, but retail space as well. We have been looking at shopping malls and commercial office buildings. At the Bahamas Financial Centre, we have toyed with the idea of opening a retail space there on the ground floor and alternative uses for space."
Stubbs from CFAL confirmed that BPF "has the ability" to diversify its holdings.
"We would suggest that they pursue properties with a more diversified tenant mix. You don't want a situation where tenants are focused on one particular sector," he explained.
He agreed that a property with a strong retail component, such as a mall, would serve the fund well.
BPF is now trading at a discount of $3.16 per share.
NASSAU, Bahamas -- Students of Laurens Central School in Laurens, New York found time to assist Bahamian children while cruising through The Bahamas on their senior class trip.
The graduating class of the secondary unit of the school visited Nassau and Grand Bahama aboard Carnival's Splendor. In Nassau, the group enjoyed shopping and a trip to the beach but in Grand Bahama, they managed to spread some spring cheer at the Grand Bahama Children's Home.
Accompanied by parents, teachers and school board representatives, the students delivered toys, clothing, books, grooming tools and other items to residents of the home. School Superintendent Romona Wenck said the students happily donated suitcases filled with the items.
Staff of the Ministry of Tourism, along with Bonnie Rolle (in brown outfit), senior manager of the Schools Unit in the Ministry of Tourism, welcomed the group to Nassau.
"We love to warmly welcome our guests whenever we have the opportunity but it is a special pleasure when we know that those guests are also showing such concern for some of our citizens," Ms. Rolle said of the group.
On behalf of Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe, Ms. Rolle presented the group with a certificate to commemorate their visit to islands of The Bahamas.
Four-year-old Rohan Colebrooke shyly peered out of one of the broken windows of the one-story home he lives in on Fire Trail Road when The Nassau Guardian visited yesterday.
It is a home he shares with five siblings and his single mother. While other children are requesting video games, dolls and toy trucks this Christmas, Rohan and his family only want one thing: A home.
Edith Anderson, Rohan’s mother, works at the neighborhood gas station where she earns minimum wage. The wage, she said, is simply not enough to comfortably sustain the family.
"Right now it's very hard and the condition of the house is very bad. It constantly leaks. When it rains it's like Niagara Falls, because ...
