surfing

While I was doing some surfing I came across a website called http://www.anxiety.com from which I excerpted the following because I believe it says something we always need to remember.

“To enhance your quality of life and of those around you, here are some thoughts and behaviors you may wish to consider adopting:

  • I choose to spend my energy looking for the positives in others.

  • I want to be known as a person that is supporting and encouraging to others.

  • Let my eyes search only for the positives that lie within each person, and then celebrate and encourage those attributes.

  • Let my mouth speak only those words that will lift up and support another.

  • We are all imperfect.

  • We all make mistakes.

  • We are human.

  • When someone “hits the ditch” in life, let my hands reach out to help that person back onto the road without being critical of their mistake.

  • When I “hit the ditch”, may I recognize that I, too, am human. In my humanness, may I embrace an outstretched helping hand, and welcome the kind words of encouragement that come with it.”

superiority

Ain’t it the truth.

There is so much good in the worst of us,

And so much bad in the best of us,

That it ill behooves any of us,

To say anything about the rest of us.”

Our Judgments judge us; and nothing reveals us (or) exposes our weaknesses more completely than the attitude of superiority towards others.

God Will Direct

I finally have my computer fixed. It was running soooo slowly last week that I couldn’t post.

“If this is to be a Happy New Year, a year of usefulness, a year in which we shall live to make this earth better, it is because God will direct our pathway. How important then, to feel our dependence upon Him!”Matthew Simpson

  • “I guide you in the way of wisdom
    And lead you along straight paths.
    When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;
    When you run, you will not stumble.
    Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
    Guard it well, for it is your life.
    The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
    Shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”

    Proverbs 4:11-13;18 (NIV)
