What Kurt Russell & Albert Einstein taught me about Christmas.

Related imageOn Netflix, there is a movie with Kurt Russell as Santa Claus.  So I watched it (with the kids of course), but it had a slightly different twist on how Santa is able to get to ALL the kids of the world in one night.  “The Christmas Chronicles” movie used a time machine gimmick to slowww time down to get the presents delivered.  And THAT got me thinking…


How can we slow down and enjoy this season?

Option 1:  Study the Department of Motor Vehicles, libraries and school detention to find out how they have mastered the art of making time drag on and on.

Option 2:  Tap into Einstein's theory of relativity to change how we perceive time and simplify our focus on the best parts of this Christmas. Ahaaa!

Let’s say you are driving.  There is just grass on either side of the road, no dashes or even traffic (so peaceful and serene).  On the OTHER, there are buildings, billboards, other cars and pretty much everything we see when traveling on 635 or the tollway.  Even though you may be going 60 miles per hour on each, the second one makes you feel like you are going 90 mphWhy is that?  

Moving relative to other cars or roadside distractions we SEE our speed in how fast we pass them or they pass us.  But when we don’t have that, TIME SLOWS DOWN.   Breathing slows, shoulders relax and you step out of the trenches of life to find yourself enjoying life again. 

Let the world melt away, focus on the one thing we were meant to have as guiding light.  Sure it's hard to narrow our focus, but it's much better than a cluttered and frenzied life.  Whether you believe in Jesus Christ and what His coming meant for all of us, we can all agree that LOVE is worth it.  It's the greatest creation, the thing that is the one thing that either fills our hearts with joy and peach OR without it, we self-destruct.  Find Love.  Place it on your fireplace mantle and make sure to share it with everyone around you... That is a sure recipe for the best Christmas ever.

Crazy Like a Fox.... Buy Your Next Home BEFORE Selling?

Imagine a world where you purchase your next home, THEN get up to 6 months to sell your current one...   That's right! On this planet, there is no selling then buying stress.  You don't have to feverishly search for your next home AFTER accepting an offer on your current one.   Sounds rough?  Just ask anyone who has done it! Skeptical?  I would be too! If you never heard of this before, it's called a portfolio loan.  They come in many shapes & sizes, but this loan type allows a buyer to be payment free for up to 6 months on their next home .  It's only available through the normal Fannie Mae conventional loan (sorry, no FHA/VA or USDA) and is structured so payments on your next home start AFTER your sell your old home.  This gives our clients the ability to have their cake and eat it too!  Carefully choose your new home and complete the purchase process... Then take your time moving out and selling your existing home.  THIS is how you transition from one h
