20 Rules of Wisdom

I know. I know.

I use a lot of wonderful stuff people share with me. But I promise, I don't share everything. Just things that really strike me as good. So . . . here's one more.

  1. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
  2. Dear God, I have a problem. Me.
  3. Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.
  4. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open.
  5. Silence is often misinterpreted, but it's never misquoted.
  6. Do the math: count your blessings.
  7. Faith is the ability to not panic.
  8. Laugh every day; it's like inner jogging.
  9. If you worry, pray. If you pray, don't worry.
  10. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home very day.
  11. Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.
  12. The most important thing in your home are the people.
  13. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untie the knots.
  14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.
  15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
  16. Nothing is real to you until you experience it; otherwise, it's just heresay.
  17. It's all right it sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you're done.
  18. Don't procrastinate. Do it now. God has not promised us tomorrow, so live each day as if it were your last . . . it may be!
  19. Surviving and living your life successfully requires courage. The goals and dreams you're seeking require courage and risk-taking. Learn from the turtle: it only makes progress when it sticks out it's neck.

Hmmm. Now which one applies to me the most?

Have a wonderful weekend!
