DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

NOSCE TE IPSUM


In vino veritas... those were the first words that came to mind when I was trying to remember the Latin for "Know Thyself". Then I recalled that the line I was quoting came from an old favorite movie of mine "Tombstone". The dialogue I found actually provides the translation of what was said, I always felt out of place not knowing. 


Thanks Webster:

In the movie Tombstone, Doc Holiday has a confrontation with Johnny Ringo -
Doc Holliday (while finishing his shot): In vino veritas. "In wine is truth"
Johnny Ringo:Age quod agis. "Do well what you do"
Doc Holliday: Credat Judaeus apella, non ego. "The Jew Apella may believe it, not I"
Johnny Ringo (while tapping his gun): Eventus stultorum magister. "Events are the teachers of fools"
Doc Holliday (eyes wide open speaking in a haunting whisper): In pace requiescat. "Rest in peace" 


Alternate languages are interesting because they force us not only to choose our words with purpose but consider other points of view. Various cultures have a certain way of looking at things. It helps to break out of the box and see with someone else's eyes. 

Latin: Nosce Te Ipsum: Know Thyself
Greek: Gnothi Seauton: Know Thyself

In context the phrases design means to understand your abilities and limitations. I was coaching someone to refer an inquiry they had received to a person who specialized in that area. Know Thyself. Know what you do well. Learn and Grow. But Know when to refer to a higher/alternate source for something you are not a specialist in. 

Recently I met with an experienced person to discuss the practical aspects of ministry. He told me something that stood out more than anything else that day. Delegate. You must delegate. Leaders in ministry and business fail for a lack of being able to properly delegate. They want to serve, so with the best heart they do everything, involve themselves in everything, and wear out the people either by pushing them out through annoyance or making them feel like they have no place of service. Delegation is key to leadership. Without it the leader burns out himself and those around him. 

Part of delegation is being able to fully hand over a task. He gave an example of chairs. You put someone in charge of making sure there are enough chairs for service. You are renting a hotel and there is a charge for last minute chair orders. He comes to you and says after a week or so, how many chairs do we need? You say, I don't know, that's your job. I refuse to take it back. Then he tells me. If you tell him how many chairs, then a few weeks he'll ask you again. You're still doing everything. Keep out of it. What if there aren't enough chairs??!? There will be next week, it's alright. Delegation is giving someone permission to make mistakes with NO regret. He'll make sure it doesn't happen again. As long as you keep your hands on it, he'll never grow. If he can't handle it, you'll figure it out and remove that task from his hand. If he can you have one less thing to deal with each week. 

Delegate with our time:
I am now thinking about life... How much do we take on that God didn't tell us to take on? How many tasks are we handling that he would rather someone else do, or have us delegate to others or plain reject and do away with. Maybe we don't need to watch that many TV shows this week. Maybe I don't need to eat that. Maybe I ought to cut out and put aside time to do this... 

Delegate the spirit realm: 
Jesus calmed the storm from a boat... but he obviously intended the 12 to handle it. He shouldn't have had to. He was upset at THEIR lack of faith. When a tornado warning hits my area I don't hide in the middle of the house, I go outside and deal with it in prayer and then tell the storm what it's going to do and not do regarding my property. I have little authority over my neighbors house, some but not as much as mine. 1,000 on my left and 10,000 on my right but it CANNOT touch me unless I let it through negligence or ignorance. 

Depression is NEVER EVER of God. It's always a tool of the enemy to kill steal and destroy. Believers can be sad for a loss but NOT depressed or inactive because of it. If depression is trying to come on me I have a right and responsibility to take it and eject it like the cock roach it is. I have no business indulging it and saying that it's OK because this or that happened. Praise stills the avenger and we shall enter his courts with thanksgiving and praise. Depression cannot exist in the same heart as thanksgiving and praise. Pity accompanies depression. So I can run a self diagnostic. What levels are my Thanksgiving/Praise readings at? Darkness is not the opposite of light it is the absence of it. Depression is not the opposite of praise it is the absence of it. Praise and Thanksgiving bring the presence of God. So depression is no the opposite of the presence of God it is the absence of it. If my tanks are low on Thanksgiving and Praise I am without the manifested/physical showing of the presence of God. This is the root of all evil. I cannot run a low level of depression and be OK with that. Jesus died and became a curse for me and rose again so that I could live free of the curse. To refuse praise and thanksgiving is to refuse the presence of God and treat as of little value the gift of Jesus Christ. 

Be not drunk with wine... be filled with the Spirit... if the Spirit of God is filling someone, presently, in a tangible way they often appear drunk to others. Instead of saying In wine is truth, in other words a drunk man is less likely to lie... it should be: In Spiritus Veritas. Real Truth is found in the Spirit, despite the facts or beliefs of men. 

The joy of the Lord if my strength... I choose that. It's not well I wish I had joy, so since I don't I am without strength. It's, I have joy, because the bible says I do so I have strength. Choices... Delegation. I delegate Joy, Thanksgiving, Praise, and the like because God gives me authority to do so. I then take up that which I have been given and delegate time to engage those things. I don't just call them and engage them, I practice them, and carve out time for them on purpose. I can call myself Joy all day long and still live mired in depression or worry or other common human emotions. I must go beyond calling them into my life and on purpose MAKE time in my schedule for them. Practice them. Lock myself in a room and purpose to praise until I feel something shift for the better on the inside. Even if it's just a seed of a shift. 

Maybe this article should have been called "Purpose to Praise". How do you say that in Latin?





So, maybe I should make a name tag and wear it tomorrow as a self reminder... 

Animo (Purpose to)
Laudate (Praise)

Laudate Animo... Darrell G. Wolfe

Embracing Grief - The process God gave you to heal

The following was a question from a Widow/Widower support group I belong to:

What is the most important thing you've learned about grief?
My Answer:

Grief is a process to be embraced and walked through. 
Your physical brain has developed protein structures (memories and muscle memories) that tell your body to react in a certain way.

These structures tell the leg to move when walking and they tell the body and mind to be a certain way at home with your spouse, certain expected norms.

Just as when a Vet loses a limb, a widow(er) loses something much more profound, their other half.

The new treatment for those who lose limbs is to activate the new nerve endings by rubbing them frequently with various materials (hard, soft, scratchy, smooth, hot, cold) so the brain can learn the new nerve endings. This helps alleviate "Phantom Limb Syndrome".

God gave us Widows(ers) the gift of Grief to help us recognize and process these protein structures in the brain as they relate to our …

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…
