Author, business man, consultant and motivational speaker Nido Qubein stated, “Change brings opportunity.” God does that. He allows change to take place in our lives and at times prompts us to facilitate change as a precursor for opportunities to line up. It takes courage to change. It takes faith to see an opportunity and seize it. Most people are dwelling about the past or worrying about the future. All the while missing the grand gift of the moment – the time God is giving them, right now. Our guests today are people of the moment. They are an example to us of what happens when we extract the succulent nectar of life – the moment that is now. See where that kind of living has led them, and where it will lead you.
