POINTS TO PONDER

What is the difference between a person who relies only on himself and a person who has learned to turn to GOD for help? It’s not that one will do bad things while the other will do good things. The self-reliant atheist may be a fine, upstanding person. The difference is the atheist is like a bush growing in the desert. If he has only himself to rely on, when he exhausts his eternal resources he runs the risk of running dry and withering. But the man or woman who truns to God is like a tree planted by a stream. What they share with the world is replenish from a source beyond themselves, so they never run dry.

It is familiarity with life that makes time speed quickly. When every day is a step in the unknown – as for children – the days are long with gathering of experience.

-         Beryl Markham-


As a child one looks for compliments. As an adult one looks for evidence of effectiveness. 

-         Ben Bradlee-


You can make your world so much larger by simply by acknowledging everyone else’s. 

-         Jeanne Marie Laskas- 


Words are the pen of the heart, but music is the pen of the soul. 

-         Shneur Zalman-


The hero reveals the possibilities of human nature, the celebrity reveals the possibilities of the media.

Guess what?
When it comes right down to it, whever you go, there you are.
Whatever you wind up doing, that’s what you’ve wound up doing.
Whatever you are thinking, that’s what on your mind.
Whatever has happened to you, it has already happened. 
The important question is, how are you going to handle it? In other words. “Now what?”
