PSA-210105-With Age Comes Wisdom

With the new year just begun the tendency is to extoll wisdom learned. The following list is not mine, it was sent by a friend. The list is so accurate they convey my own thoughts exactly. It must come with age.

1 After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself.

 2 I have realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

 3 I have stopped bargaining with vegetable & fruit vendors. A few pennies more is not going to break me, but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees. 

4 I leave my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than I am. 

5 I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down memory lane & relive their past. 

6 I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection. 

7 I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me. And a small tip for the recipient of a compliment, never, NEVER turn it down, just say “Thank You.” 

8 I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances. 

9 I walk away from people who don’t value me. They might not know my worth, but I do. 

10 I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat & neither am I in any race. 

11 I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human. 

12 I have learned that it’s better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas with relationships, I will never be alone. 

13 I have learned to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last. 

14 I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just choose to be!

 I decided to share this for all my friends. Why do we have to wait to be 60 or 70 or 80, why can’t we practice this at any stage and age?

GOD’S Accuracy

GOD’S ACCURACY 

 When GOD solves our problems, we have faith in HIS abilities. When GOD doesn’t solve our problems, HE has faith in our abilities. 

One may observe God’s accuracy in the hatching of eggs. . . . 
those of the canary in 14 days;
those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
eggs of ducks and geese in 28 days;
those of the mallard in 35 days;
the eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!) 

 See God’s wisdom in the making of an elephant. . . . 
The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made.
God planned that this animal would have a huge body – too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave
it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily. The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.  How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!  Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.  Each orange has an even number of segments. 
Each ear of corn has an even number of rows. 
Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains. Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number. 

 Amazing! There’s more…  The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.  All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks.  God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture, and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed.  The lives of each of us may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if we will only entrust Him with our lives. If we try to regulate our own lives, we will have only mess and failure.  Only God, who made our brains and hearts, can successfully guide them to a profitable end.  

When you carry the Bible, Satan has a headache; when you open it, he collapses.  When he sees you reading it, he loses his strength, and when you stand on the Word of God, Satan can’t hurt you! And did you also know…  …that when you are about to forward this email to others, the devil will probably try to discourage you, but do it anyway. Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil – it has no point.

 I pray God bless you in ways you never even dreamed. I didn’t think twice about forwarding this one – and I hope you don’t, either. Pass on the blessings!!

PSA-180117-God’s Wisdom Revealed

When GOD solves our problems,
we have faith in HIS abilities.
When GOD doesn’t solve our problems,
HE has faith in our abilities.
 
 One may observe God’s accuracy in the hatching of eggs…
those of the Canary in 14 days;
those of the Barnyard Hen in 21 days;
Eggs of Ducks and Geese in 28 days;
those of the Mallard in 35 days;
Eggs of the Parrot and the Ostrich hatch in 42 days.
 
 (Notice, they are all divisible by seven,
the number of days in a week!)
 
 See God’s Wisdom in the making of an Elephant…
The four legs of this great beast
all bend forward in the same direction.
No other quadruped is so made.
God planned that this animal would have a huge body…
too large to live on two legs.
For this reason He gave it four fulcrums
so that it can rise from the ground easily.
The Horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
A Cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
 
 How wise the Lord is in all His works of Creation!
 
 Each Watermelon has an even number of stripes on the Rind.
 
 Each Orange has an even number of segments.
Each ear of Corn has an even number of rows.
Each stalk of Wheat has an even number of grains.
 
 Every bunch of Bananas has on its lowest row
an even number of Bananas,
and each row decreases by one,
so that one row has an even number
and the next row an odd number.
 
 Amazing!
There’s more…
 
 The Waves of the Sea roll in on shore
Twenty-six to the Minute in all kinds of weather.
 
 All Grains are found in even numbers on the stalks..
 
 God has caused the Flowers to Blossom
at certain specified times during the day.

Linnaeus,
the Great Botanist,
once said that if he had a Conservatory
containing the right kind of Soil,
Moisture,
and Temperature,
he could tell the Time of Day or Night
by the Flowers that were Open
and those that were Closed.
 
 The Lives of each of us
may be ordered by the Lord
in a Beautiful Way for His Glory,
if we will only Entrust Him with our Lives.
If we try to Regulate our own Lives,
we will have only Mess and Failure.
 
 Only God,
who made our Brains and Hearts,
can Successfully Guide them to a Profitable End.
 
 When you carry the Bible,
Satan has a Headache;
when you Open it,
he Collapses.
 
 When he sees you Reading it,
he loses his Strength,
and when you Stand on the Word of God,
Satan can’t Hurt you!

 
 Life without God is like an Unsharpened pencil – it has no Point.
 
 I pray God bless you in ways you never even Dreamed.
I didn’t think twice about forwarding this one.
