(Whispers of Wisdom) Where I live, on a hill unobstructed by buildings or trees, the sky looks very big. I'm constantly reminded to look up for a sunrise, sunset, special cloud formations or varying colors. It also reminds me to look up more often than I look around me, remembering that the answers to the confusion around us can only come from above, from God our Creator. What He allows me to learn, I'd like to share with you.
See the sky and hills!
In Quiet Moments Here
Friday, July 1, 2011
Why is it that there is so much good in the world, yet our news media and our own personal conversations tend to be focused on things that are bad, ugly? My mom used to say, many, many times, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Of course it wasn't original to Mom, but it sticks in my mind because she said it. My mom had so much wisdom to share, and even better, she lived what she talked. The best thing I remember about my mom was her smile, and I marvel today how she could be happy no matter how she felt, and she could spread that happiness around.
Some friends & relatives posted this on their facebook page today, and it hit a strong note with me:
An old man once said,
"There comes a time in your life
when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh.
Forget the bad, and focus on the good.
Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't.
