Words of Wisdom

Today, let’s share some general wisdom on life:

Sometimes I need to remind myself to look at my blessings rather than dwell on all the things that have gone wrong—or that I may think have gone wrong.

image

How much we miss while trying to do FOR our families instead of WITH them.

image

We can’t even control our own behavior most of the time. Why do we try to control other things or people?

image

We’re always trying to put round pegs into square holes.

These two are particularly meaningful to me as I have lived through my sixties and into my seventies.

image

This may be the best of the bunch. Amor Vincit Omnia.

Words of wisdom we all need to remember.

I hope these little sayings have been meaningful to you. Each one of them has an important meaning to me.

What can you take from these and apply to your own life? Which was your favorite? What other such sayings are important to you?

    An enjoyable post, any one I believe you could have chosen and added your thoughts. For a few years now a sermon about thankfulness has resonated with me unforgettably. Despite the trials of the past years I have continued to count my blessings and it has helped my attitude always. Now I talk to Him honestly but when I do, I always include first my thankfulness for the good in my life, for which I am truly thankful.

  3. David – Each message is filled with wisdom in its own inspiring way. I really like the last one also. Grandmother used to always say, “Words are as dangerous as a firearm. Once spoken, you can never take them back.” Also, the one on growing old spoke to me loud and clear. As Tom and I meet one medical issue after another, I remind myself that God’s grace has permitted one more day to make a difference in this world created for us.

    These are all beautiful and I try to live them daily. I had not heard the growing old and a privilege denied to many. I must remember that. Thank you for brightening my day.
