I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes, sayings, and other things that are good to ponder and to think on.
This first one spoke so truly to me, and explained exactly how I feel most of the time, and have nearly always felt most of my life.
I am aware that I am less than people prefer me to be,
But most people are unaware that I am so much more
Than what they see.
Tomorrow is a Mystery,
When things go wrong ,as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high , and you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must..... but Don't you Quit!
Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint of the clouds of doubt. And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems afar. SO, Stick to the fight when you're hardest hit.... It's when you're hardest hit that you MUST NOT QUIT !!!
If God brings you to it,
He will bring you through it.
In happy moments, praise God.
During difficult moments, seek God.
In quiet moments, worship God.
During painful moments trust God.
In every moment, thank God.
Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart . . . Mother Teresa
'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
Thank God for dirty dishes.
They have a tale to tell.
While other folks go hungry,
We're eating very well.
With health and home and happiness,
We shouldn't want to fuss.
For by the stack of evidence
God is very good to us,
"When I Say Good Morning"
When I say good morning I mean
O - ffers us His
O - utstanding
D - evotion toM - ake us
O - bedient &
R - eady for a
N - ew day with Him.
I- nspire others please, and
N - ever forget
G - od loves you!
These are words that every wife should ponder.
Every home should be a Bethesda, “a house of mercy,” where the suffering, the weary, the sorrowing, the tempted, the tried, the fallen, may ever turn sure of sympathy, of help and of love’s holiest fruits.
Homemaking by J.R. Miller
" THE OLD PATHS "
I liked the old paths, when
Moms were at home, Dads were at work, Brothers went into the army,
And sisters got married BEFORE having children!
Crime did not pay; Hard work did; And people knew the difference.
Moms could cook; Dads would work; Children would behave.
Husbands were loving; Wives were supportive; And children were polite.
Women wore the jewelry; And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies; Men looked like gentlemen; And children looked decent.
People loved the truth, And hated a lie;
They came to church to get IN, Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly; Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal; And crying sounded sincere.
Cursing was wicked; Drugs were for illness; And divorce was unthinkable.
The flag was honored; America was beautiful; And God was welcome!
We read the Bible in public; Prayed in school; And preached from house to house.
To be called an American was worth dying for; To be called a Christian was worth living for;
To be called a traitor was a shame!
Preachers preached because they had a message;
And Christians rejoiced because they had the VICTORY!
Preachers preached from the Bible; Singers sang from the heart;
And sinners turned to the Lord to be SAVED!
A new birth meant a new life; Salvation meant a changed life;
Following Christ led to eternal life.
Being a preacher meant you proclaimed the word of God;
Being a deacon meant you would serve the Lord;
Being a Christian meant you would live for Jesus;
And being a sinner meant someone was praying for you!
Laws were based on the Bible; Homes read the Bible; And churches taught the Bible.
God was worshiped; Christ was exalted; And the Holy Spirit was respected.
Church was where you found Christians On the Lord's day, rather than in the garden,
On the creek bank, on the golf course, Or being entertained somewhere else.
I still like the old paths the best!
These are just a few of my favorites. I hope each one says something special to your heart.
