Ponderous Thoughts


Chapter headings taken from Mrs. Miracle by Debbie Macomber:


1. A lot of people want to serve God, but only in an advisory capacity.
2. The best way to get even is to forget.
3. Feed your faith and doubts will starve to death.


4. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
5. Some folks wear their halos much too tight.
6. Some marriages are made in heaven, but they all have to be maintained on earth.


7. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, and faith looks up.
8. Pick your friends, but not to pieces.
9. Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides (Margaret Thatcher)


10. Those who bury their talents make a grave mistake.
11. A closed mouth gathers no foot.
12. Words are the windows to the heart.


13. A skeptic is a person, who when he sees the handwriting on the wall, claims it’s a forgery (Morris Bender)
14. It isn’t difficult to make a mountain out of a molehill. Just add a little dirt.
15. A successful marriage isn’t finding the right person; it’s being the right person.
16. Scatter Sonshine


17. All things are possible with God, but no one said they’d be easy.
18. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
19. The mighty oak tree was once a little nut that held its ground.
20. Too many people offer God prayers with claw marks all over them.


21. The tongue must be heavy indeed, for so few people can hold it.
22. To forgive is to set the prisoner free and then discover the prisoner was you.
23. You have to wonder about people. They think God is dead and Elvis is alive.


24. Swallowing angry words is much more palatable than having to eat them afterward.
25. There’s a reason a dog has so many friends: he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
26. Love looks through a telescope, not a microscope.


27. It’s all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you’re finished.
28. A turtle only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.
29. If the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, you can believe the water bill is higher.
