The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower
viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences,
but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too
fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have
multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how
to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We've done larger
things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers
to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast
foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two
incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality,
one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is
much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time
when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones,
because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because
that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because
that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, "I love you" to your
partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love,
give time to speak and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
this is something my mother told me from the time I
THIS TOO SHALL PASS
.....and it came
to pass...is used hundreds of times throughout the King James Version of the Bible. That should tell us in this life
whatever exists now, or will exist in the future, is not permanent, but temporary. The good news is, no matter how dismal
our current situation or outlook, we are assured by God, "This too shall pass." Life is a continual process in which
everything is constantly changing. If we can grasp that truth, it will help us make it through the difficult times in
which we find ourselves. It will also help us not to hold on to tightly to the good times, thinking, "if I ever lose
all this, I just can't make it." God wants us to enjoy all of life--not just its destination, but also the trip itself.
Ps. 91:14-16--The message the Lord is giving us in these verses is simply this; "No matter what you are going through at the
moment, sooner or later it will pass. Someday it will all be over and done. In the meantime, cast your care upon
Me and trust Me to work out everything for the best."
The devil offers us two lies: the forever lie and the
never lie. He
tells us the negative things in our life will be that way forever; then concerning positive things,
he wants us to believe that if they ever do change, we couldn't stand it. Both of these lies create fear in our hearts.
Both are untrue because sooner or later, everything changes. If we continue to believe God and place our trust in Him,
bad things ultimately give way to better things. In other words, nothing lasts forever, everything changes, this too
SO TIE A KNOT AND HOLD ON!
