FAITH FILLED FRIDAY: Wisdom with a bit of humor

March 25, 2016

I’ve been collecting tidbits like these over the years. I don’t always think to keep the location. The first one is from Facebook since it had an address and a few are from the Raptitude blog. There might be others from Facebook, Reader’s Digest, the Coffee News, or most anywhere. Enjoy. ~ Connie

The first ‘cordless’ phone was made by God. It was the model called Prayer. It never lost a signal and the recharging was done by the Holy Spirit. Use anywhere…anytime.

The existence of evil is not evidence of God’s absence in the universe but evidence of His absence from our lives.
Enjoy doing your children’s laundry. Some day they’ll be gone.
Own at least one plant. They’ll never judge you, but they’ll let you know if you’re being careless.
Be aware of the intoxicating effect of bad moods. A bad mood usually means things are better than they look.
It’s a whole lot easier to get breakfast from a chicken than a pig.
Whenever you return a borrowed pie pan, make sure it’s got a warm pie in it.
The colder the outhouse, the warmer the bed.
Listen to Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” slowed down to 33 rpm, at least once in your life.
What others think of you is none of your business.
Don’t act while you’re still angry. Anger makes the wrong things seem right, and remorse lasts way longer than anger.
Rediscover board games. They’re still tons of fun.
Learn the difference between something that makes you feel bad, and something that’s wrong. A thing can feel bad and be right, and it can feel good and be wrong.
Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
Reach out to people you know are shy. It’s hard for them to get involved in social things without somebody making a point of including them.
If you’re about to put down a boring non-fiction book, skim the rest of it before you move on. Read the bits that still appeal to you.
Nothin’ gets the frustrations out better’n splittn’ wood.
Visit old people who can’t get out. Some day you’ll be one.
The problem is not guns. It is hearts without God, homes without discipline, schools without prayer and courts without justice.
