To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard 

                                                   those those that have outlived their purpose.               Marie Condo


                                                                          


                                                              Instead of wondering when your next vacation is , maybe you should set up 

                                                  a life you don't need to escape from.

                                                   The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do 

                                          not expect to sit.                                                        Nelson Henderson


                                                        The cross is not a plus sign but a trust sign.

If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls

                                                       family, friends, integrity are made of glass. If you drop oneof these , it will

                                                       be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.

                                           Sometimes in life, maybe some of the best things happen after you been kind of crushed.

                                                 All the scholastic scaffolding falls, as a ruined edifice , before a single word : faith.

                                                                      Adversity draws men together and produces beauty and harmony in

                                                        life's relationships , just as the cold of winter produces ice-flowers on

                                                        the windowpanes , which vanish with the warmth.

                                                                                                                                                          Soren Kierkegaard


                                                       Life is like a hot bath : it feels good while you are in it , but the longer you stay ,

                                               I am still encouraged to go on. I wouldn't know where else to go.

                                               Keep going come what may ...the goal will become clearer , will emerge slowly but

                                        The mind has exactly the same power as the hands: not merely to grasp the world,

                                     For many of us, too often we're on Facebook instead of seeking God's face.

                                                               The way to see by faith is to shut the eyes of reason.

                             I wonder if the snow loves the trees and the fields, that it kisses them so gently?And then it 

                       covers them up snug, you know with a white quilt: And perhaps it says," Go to sleep darlings ,

                       till the summer comes again."                                                                Lewis Carroll


                                       My idea of Christmas whether old fashioned or modern, is very simple. Loving others come to think of it ,                                     why do we have to wait to Christmas to do that.                                           Bob Hope

                                                                Life is like a puzzle we are are trying to solve. 

                                                   It is like no other in that as we work through it' the pieces change and evolve.


                                                   Some of the pieces we had with us at the start, are taken from us and

                                                   this makes us feel lost and  breaks our heart.

                                                   

                                                    As we stare out in space and the places they used to be , We do not know what to think or do.

                                                    We are not aware but God is changing us too.


                                                    Other pieces show up and have been added that were not there before. This does does make

                                                     any sense and confuses us all the more.


                                                    We cannot see the big picture and get frustrated and bent out  of shape.

                                                    It is often hard to tell  and seems like hell but God is using every twist, turn,  bruise ,and scrape

                                                    

                                                    

                                                    I found Jesus and in knowing him have a peace my heart has never known

                                                    I do not fear or need to see what is ahead for me because  the eyes of my heart

                                                    can clearly see my Lord, Savior, and King loooking out for me sitting calmly on his throne.


                                                                 Every poem is a momentary stay against the confusion of this world.

           When I was a young boy, I learned in school that in the morning the sun did not actually rise. It just seems that way but in truth the earth bows each morning  before  the sun and  that had  never dawned on me so imagine my surprise! Now I am not suggesting sun worship as other have done. It shows the earth knows and remembers there is another who gives it life and honor should be given to that one. What a fine example it sets for us to do the same. We should bow  and thank God each and every every morning for giving us life through his Son ,Jesus, and praise his mighty name.         GKG

I'm just maverick  to say that I think fewer Christians ought to be going into the ministry and more should be going into business  and into occupations that have nothing to do with the vocational service. I don't see life divided into public and private, secular and sacred. It's all an open place of service before our God. My hope is to see ...a group of Christians who will infiltrate our society- in fact, our entire world-with a pure ,beautiful message of grace an honesty in the marketplace. Charles Swindoll
